The guilty cheater

Dear Bella: I cheated on my boyfriend during the Parade. I am very guilty and I do not know what to do. I know my boyfriend said he has never cheated. But I feel so guilty and I can hardly look him in the eye. I told him I have a headache and he believes. He would not believe I would cheat. But I cannot continue to live the lie. But I do not want to break his heart and risk a break-up. What should I do?


Dear Confused:

Be honest. Let him know you cheated. Otherwise your guilt will eat away at you. If you continue to live a lie, your guilt will grow. I know it is not easy but be honest and ask that he forgives you.

Also be prepared for a break-up, but it will be a lesson learned.

When i say we have great sex I meanbut at and this little biker bar. I am 50 he is 43. I feel like I leave in a dungeon that he locks me in and if i do go out, which i maybe do once every 3-4 months, he threatens to leave me and accuses me of being with other men which i would never ever never do??!!:( all i do is work, go to the gym with my 17yr old daughter and stay home and cook vegan meals and me clean….i’m so lonely and have no friends but him……I’ve even taken personal days off at work and told him to plan to do something together with but he ALWAYS blows me off to be with his friends?? please help me….I want to be free of this man and don’t know how to do it or get thru to him id rather stay with him….i know it sounds pathetic but i love him so much…..signed Wet and left to dry alone…………

        dont worry, some of the hardworking girls dont say what they working hard on. not just the BET girls thats the problem. atleast this type is open and easy to read from the get go. its the well dressed seemingly decent well spoken girls u gotta watch well. most times, that’s the ones that cheat and do … behind our backs and get away with it for a very long time. careful out there. not denying that there aint great girls in the midst. be patient and obeservant people.

    This is the most absurd thing i have heard of.
    wy should woman cheat though, the same thing your man is giving to you , is the same thing you go and get from this man, you have to take into consideration there is a thing call Aids, stds and so forth, be satisfied with the one man you’ve got. i am from D/ca also living in us for many yrs, aways known the da woman are fast. i understand d/ca has beautiful men, but i have one there ,my husband , please hands off of him. you girl is too slack , put a sock on you . you know what

    If you claim say that your boyfriend never cheated on and you trusted his comments….
    It was just a parade for god sake, why you had to do such a thing. Now you can even look him in the eyes.

    And sometime you wemen wonder why cant you get and keep a real man. some of you are to stupid. im not judging here dont get me wrong it goes both ways.

    But i blame you ( Miss confussed )……

  16. January 25, 2010

    girl you mean to say you cheated just to get something to tell bella; what’s ur problem if you don’t want to break a man’s heart what’s the point of cheating and to tell him. Well forget it this is the end of the relationship; blame yourself and grow up. Bella cannot help you!
