I cheated on my girlfriend in a long distance

So, I am in a relationship for 5 years now. I have moved out for higher studies and it's like long-distance going on for 1.5 years now. I love her so she does more than me. Recently being alone made me install dating apps so that I could meet up with people and have a clear picture in mind to socialise. But recently I did a blunder coz I maked out as I tried not to indulge in this thing but I was unable to control it. Now, this thing is giving me guilt and she is so possessive of me and could do worst things to her that I really don't want. I want to say to her but I don't have enough courage and maybe we could end up breaking up which I am afraid of. What should I do?
Understandably long distance relationships are difficult, your mistake started when you installed the dating apps despite being in a relationship and you carried on making those mistakes as you continued to use the app, talk to others which eventually lead you to cheating on her. It's worth talking to her about it and being honest with your situation, maybe you can both work through it? It's not fair if you keep things from her and it's the most sensible thing to do for her. Whether she breaks up with you is her choice, but if you feel so strongly about being alone then maybe it's better for you to end things before it ends up happening again and it hurting her more.

Give me your girlfriend's number, I will take care of her and not cheat unlike you
You need to tell her so she dumps you. The thought of installing dating apps shouldn’t even cross your mind when you have a girlfriend and if it does then you know the relationship is rubbish anyway.
