People who cheat are emotionally weak, they should never be given a chance. Once a cheater, always a cheater.

I would'nt even consider it. There are plenty of great people out there who havent cheated on their ex.

As that person: yes.

I cheated on someone in October 2010. It was a one time event, has never happened since, and I would never do it again. I learned from that experience.

And, before anyone tags gjd800, yes he's aware of this and yet still trusts me!

If I was talking to a girl and she mentioned cheating on her ex, I would be extremely cautious.
There's a lot I can excuse a person for but cheating in a healthy relationship is very difficult to gloss over.

Too risky. I wouldnt touch a previous cheater, a past cheater is more likely to cheat than someone who has never cheated. so no

I wouldn't write someone off if they've cheated in a past relationship unless I have reason to. If you trust them, give them a chance. Maybe they have changed.

You shouldn't let someone's past actions define them (unless the cheating has happened several times in several different relationships).

It depends whether marriage or a civil partnership was involved and if so whether the alleged 'cheating' involved any face to face meetings/playing video games without permission or alleged 'emotional infidelity' of speaking to a friend/relative that the partner despises.
'When a man marries his mistress it creates a vacancy' .
Personally I'd give an unmarried guy a chance but wouldn't expect him to change his habits or suddenly develop enthusiasm for both sexual exclusivity and lifelong commitment.

yes. people are so judgmental when it comes to cheating when in reality it's usually just a physical act with no emotions attached.

Straight up no. Even if they did only do it once. It's disgusting.

Yes, we know each other offline. If our relationship was exclusively online then I'd definitely become a serial cheater.
