4. How Did They Cheat On You, As In, What Kind Of Infidelity Did They Indulge In?

Try and understand how they were unfaithful to you, and what kind of cheating did they indulge in. If they had an emotional affair and were connected to the other person emotionally, then it goes much deeper than just being unfaithful. In the case of an emotional affair, things can get way more complicated for you both, because it’s not just physical, it’s something so much more than that for them.

But if it was a drunken one-night stand, and they regret their actions, then there’s still a chance of making things right. It’s not that a one-night stand is any less painful, but if it doesn’t mean anything deep and emotional for your partner, then this crack in your relationship can still be repaired. At the end of the day, it all depends on how you want to handle this and what you want to do.

5. How Broken Do You Feel, And How Wounded Is Your Sense Of Dignity And Self-Esteem?

Going through an experience like this is enough to make you feel broken, insulted, and humiliated, all at the same time. Ask yourself, how much you hurt, and how much is your self-esteem and dignity damaged due to the actions of your partner. When the person you love, breaks your trust, it can be devastating, and no matter how much you love them, trying to get out of this mental and emotional darkness is extremely difficult.

You have to decide whether you will be able to forgive them at all and whether you will be able to repair your self-confidence and self-esteem while being with them. If you think you can, then it’s worth a shot, and if you think you can’t, then you might want to rethink the whole relationship.

6. Do You Think You Will Be Able To Trust Them Again Like Before?

Once your trust is broken, it can be very difficult to come back from that. Broken trust is like broken glass, once it breaks, no matter how much you may try to fix it with glue, the cracks will always show. If you feel that your partner is a good person, genuinely loves you, wants to make things right with you, and with time, you will be able to trust them like you used to, then it’s a good sign that your relationship deserves a second chance.

But if you feel at the bottom of your heart that, nothing will ever be the same again, and there’s no way you can trust them 100%, then think about your next step very carefully.

7. Are You Willing To Deal With All The Complications That Might Arise Due To Your Partner’s Cheating?

When your partner cheats on you, it doesn’t just end there; there are so many more complications that can arise out of this one single act. If you choose to tell your friends and family about what happened, the drama and the extra conversations can be hard to deal with, especially for you. The person your partner was involved with, might pose more problems.

And most importantly, all the difficult conversations that you and your partner need to have, in order to come to terms with what happened can be mentally and emotionally very draining, again especially for you. Wanting to understand why they did what they did, and how everything went down can be heartbreaking for you. So you have to put yourself first, and decide whether you have the energy and patience to deal with all this or not.
