Terrible self-esteem

Pressure overload

‘My latest girlfriend and I were actually set to get married, until I confessed to cheating on her. The pressure and the realization that we were going to spend the rest of our lives together when I didn’t feel ready totally derailed everything’. – Will, 35

Major confusion

‘This is going to sound really selfish, but fear that my girlfriend would cheat on me actually led me to cheating on her. The trust in our relationship wasn’t great, but looking back now, that isn’t much of an excuse’. – Shaun, 31.

She wasn’t ‘the one’

‘When I was with Stella I was really unsure if I really wanted to be with her. When I finally decided that I had fallen out of love with her, I didn’t have the courage to tell her that I wanted to end things. When she eventually did find out that I was seeing someone else, it broke her heart which is something I regret’. – Taylor, 36.

I felt trapped

‘Things were moving so fast with Laurie that I just panicked and made a huge mistake. My stupid behavior meant that despite all the apologies in the world, she left me and even after three years, I still haven’t been able to find anyone as special as her’. – Craig, 31.

It was exciting

‘I feel ashamed to say it, but sneaking around and cheating on Amanda actually gave me a huge thrill. Since then, I’ve turned my life around and am now in a stable and honest relationship’. – Jon, 40.

It was an accident

‘I had drunk way too much one night and ended up going home with a friend of mine, the next day I confessed everything to Lea and she immediately broke things of with me. Cheating on Lea is my biggest regret in life’. – Carlton, 36.

I felt unloved

‘I felt really unloved and unwanted in my last relationship, I know that’s not an excuse for cheating, but I just couldn’t escape how I felt and craved love’. – Greg, 37.
