Secrets about infidelity and cheating.
Won’t tell unless asked
I cheated on the love of my life, while sick and lonely on an academic trip, and I deeply regret it. I chose not to tell my partner, and I broke up with him—thinking that our relationship was not salvageable (we had been having some serious difficulties before I left on the trip). We recently reconciled, but I still feel terrible about this dark secret. I still haven’t told him, and don’t think I will be able to—unless he asks me directly. I loathe myself for all of my flaws, and I think I will always feel insecure in a relationship. I struggle with deep depression, borderline traits, and other health issues, that have been treatment-resistant.
Want to ruin her happiness
I’ve been sleeping with my ex during and before his girlfriend’s pregnancy, who is a friendly acquaintance of mine. They had the baby today. I feel so empty right now. I want to tell her so bad but I know it’s only because of a selfish void I need filled.
Sex on the dancefloor
I had sex with a stranger on a crowded dancefloor right under my partner’s nose. The thrill of it and the fear of getting caught was a complete turn-on.
Ridden with guilt
I cheated on the man I love the most and now I feel so guilty it’s making me sick.
Cheating brought us closer
I cheated on my boyfriend now fiancée. We were having a hard time with IVF and our communication broke down. We stopped having fun. I was convinced we were going to break up. I slept with someone else and it made me realize what I have. It opened up communication and made us enjoy each other again. Now we have a daughter through IVF. But the guilt of my cheating is eating away at me.
Tried getting oral from a guy
A year and a half ago I went looking for sexual gratification outside of my current relationship. I looked online to find a member of the same sex to perform oral sex on me. I found someone, visited their house and instantly disliked what was going on then left shortly after arriving. I feel shame and guilt about what I did. I’m keeping this from my partner, but it’s killing me. I don’t have the heart to tell her. it would devastate her.
Did my ex
I slept with an ex-girlfriend while my wife was overseas. I am feeling completely guilty about it and have insomnia as I can’t let go and am feeling rather fearful and selfish about my actions.
