I hold a special hateful grudge against cheaters. People who cheat on their significant others, that is. Wife, husband, fiancee, girlfriend, boyfriend, whatever. If you are in a committed relationship and you cheat on your partner, I hate you.
What constitutes cheating? Does it have to be physical cheating where some actual wham-bam intercourse has taken place? What about non-penetrating sex? Making out? Hand holding? Cyber-sex, where there's no physical touch taking place? Does that constitute cheating? Intimate emails and internet chats that are ooey-gooey-dripping-in-love over each other? Phone calls? Skype? Is that really cheating?
My personal take: I feel that cyber-affairs are cheating. It doesn't matter that the people involved have no physical contact.....it's the emotions and mental intimacy involved that makes it cheating. For people like that, distance doesn't make a difference.....if they were physically close in geographics, no doubt they would be fucking.
What's the point? I found out a couple of online friends are having an affair and are divorcing their spouses for each other. Why should I care? I shouldn't, really, it's none of my business. I've never even met these people in real life. Who gives a fuck, and why should I?
I have experience in being cheated on, and that's all I need to say. Fuck all other arguments, if you are in a relationship and you 'fall' for someone else, you fucking end that relationship before you start another one. End of story, period.
I'm finding it hard to find empathy and sympathy for the people in question. Especially when children are involved.
