Made a Mistake Secrets
I’ve done something I shouldn’t have.
Lied to my husband about my GED
I lied to my husband about getting a traditional high school diploma. When I really got a GED. For a long time I was ashamed of my GED. Now, I have accepted it because it has never held me back. I now have a BA and a good career.
I have kept up the lie for so long, I don’t know how to tell the truth.
Sex with my teacher
I cheated on my girlfriend with my teacher. And I plan on doing it again.
My sexual lies are driving me crazy
My ex and I have this thing going, where we are "more than friends". She means a lot to me. After we broke up the first time, I slept with her cousin after her cousin told me that she just used me to gain popularity. I told my ex about this and she got over it and we got back together. Then she left me again because she figured out that I just did it to get back at her. And we were fighting too often. Now we have decided that we can’t date but we are in love with each other. After she dumped me the second time though, I slept with this nasty girl who everyone loathes because I was so depressed and I wanted to feel something. Now I have lied to my ex and all my friends, and told them that the girl tried to "Semi-rape" me, (opening a condom and taking all of her clothes off before I pushed her away). In reality I stopped before I came because I couldn’t do it. I was just too tired and it didn’t feel right. Now I feel a disconnect with my lover because she has never lied to me. And last time I lied to her she was crushed. I can’t do that to her again. But at the same time I feel so awful about it. This is very small compared to other peoples’ problems but whatever.
My ex got even with me
Me and my boyfriend, who I’ll call Joe have now been together for 5 years, on and off.
During the first year of our relationship, I met someone else, me and this other person who I’ll call George, began to have feelings for each other, so I decided to end it with Joe. Me and George were officially dating now. I was the first woman he’s ever been with, he lost his virginity to me, and started to fall in love with me. We had a lot of fun together, and I did really care about him, but after only 4 months of dating I couldn’t help thinking about Joe. As George started to fall more deeper in love with me the more I withdrew from him. I started to talk to Joe again. I realized I’ve always loved Joe and broke it off with George. He was heart broken and devastated. But what could I do, I loved Joe. So me and Joe got back together again.
2 and a half years passed and I found myself unhappy in what I thought a dying relationship, and stalking George’s facebook page. We started messaging each other and he asked me to meet him. I knew it was wrong, I was with Joe, the man I loved, but I couldn’t help but to be curious, "What if I chose the wrong guy? What did I miss?" So I agreed.
The day came around and I met him at his new apartment. He looked good, and I was nervous. We had a drink and caught up, we were talking and laughing, it seemed like a good time. One thing led to another and we were in bed, after we had sex I told him I had to go to the store for some cigarettes, I left my purse there since I was going to be right back, as I was about to leave the building he came downstairs and handed me my purse with this smirk on his face and walked away, I was confused, I went to his door and knocked on the door and asked him what was going on, he then opened the door handed me a note and shut it again. I opened the note and there it said: "This is for everything you’ve put me through, now I just proved you are easy." My heart was raising, I crumbled up the note, and yelled: "You know you really have no life." And threw the note at his door.
I never knew how bad I hurt George, that even after 3 years he was still dwelling on it and planning his sweet revenge. Me and Joe have now been together for 5 years and I still haven’t told him about that one day, I don’t think I ever could. But even now I still think about it, the one day my ex got his revenge.
Business trip lead to a kiss
I was on a convention trip in another city. I was intoxicated with a friend of mine and we ended up kissing. We’re both married to wonderful people and don’t want to ruin our current relationships. It is amazing but I now know how much I love my wife and baby girl. I feel like I should tell my wife to relieve my guilt but my best friend and the other woman do not think it wise. My wife and I have had a difficult few years and we finally are on the right path and for this to happen now is horrendous. I have never done this and will never do this again. I have web chatted with her since and she doesn’t know anything, just thinks I’m sick. I hope that once I see her this feeling will dissipate a little bit. My friends tell me that this feeling will go away and that this happens with a lot of couples. I have to be strong, try and be the best person I can be from now on and love my wife to the best of my ability.
My sisters boyfriend
Too Much Guilt
I live with my sister, her boyfriend and my boyfriend. We always hang out together. One night we were all pretty intoxicated on alcohol and party drugs. My sister and my boyfriend went to bed. Things got a bit out of hand. My sisters boyfriend an I had a swim in the pool and he started to kiss me and touch me inappropriately. I kind of let it happen not thinking about the consequences. I don’t know how I could have done this to my sister, I know she would never have done or do something like this to me. I feel like I can’t speak or look at her and I have a burning desire to tell her but I am scared she will hate me (understandably). She is the closest thing in the world to me. And on top of that I have betrayed my boyfriend too. He is the sweetest person and best boyfriend in the world whom I love to pieces I don’t know how I cannot tell him? He will beat up the other boy and then my sister is bound to find out. If I tell basically everyone will be in so much pain and we will all loose each other. What I did was so destructive. The only thing I can do is learn from the situation and move forward. Holding onto guilt is my punishment. I hope desperately over time that I can forgive myself and that things can go back to normal. But I want to know if this guilt will ever pass?
I cheated on my girlfriend twice
I cheated on my girlfriend twice with 2 different people.
Lied to my boyfriend about being pregnant
In an ugly moment of insecurity and desperation I lied to my boyfriend about being pregnant, and then later lied about have a miscarriage. Every day, I am racked with guilt over this ugly lie. I keep thinking what happened to me? What happened to the good person I thought I was? I want to be better, and I never want to do anything like this again.
Online fantasies went too far
For about a month I shared fantasies with a woman online. It was innocent, until my wife went out of town. This woman invited me for drinks with her husband. I knew she was married, but she did not know I was.
We had a fun time, and then talked some more about fantasies. It got hot, and I broke down and made out with her.
I am crushed that I could not see this coming. I cannot tell my wife. The guilt is bad for me, but when you are married to a Bi-polar woman (not manic) you think about how you will hurt them more, and how it will make things worse.
How could I fall for this mistake?
Did something stupid because of a crush
I love this boy and this boy did not even know I existed. I wanted to change that so I saw him at a party. He asked me if i wanted to do something illegal with him. I was so gone, and wanted him to like me so I did it. we were high as kites when he told me he was going to ask this girl he really likes out. I asked who and he said I would not know her because she was ten times hotter than I was and she had "experience". I didn’t know how to react. I was speechless. I had really wanted him to like me and I degraded my morals to try and get with him. I realized as I woke up with the worst headache ever the next morning that I was so dumb. He wasn’t worth the tears, headache or loss of my morals. But he got his because he ended up getting herpes from the "really hot girl" with "experience."
