A wandering eye, suspicious texts or flat-out douchebag antics are bound to destroy at least one romance in our lifetimes. (Especially with Tinder and Snapchat thrown into the mix… dirty rotten scoundrels.)
So, naturally, we reached out and asked millennials to spill their guts about every cheating experience they’ve ever had. Because, well, we do not respect personal privacy and NEED TO KNOW ALL OF THE THINGS.
These were the most fascinating and horrifying responses.
‘Yes, I’ve cheated. Three times.’
A 29-year-old woman who has both cheated and been cheated on spoke to us.
“I’ve cheated three times in total,” she shared with me. “Twice on one boyfriend (with guy mates) and once on another.
“I cheated on the first boyfriend because I was unhappy in the relationship, but didn’t quite know how to get out of it because we looked so good on paper. I felt guilty for not feeling as fulfilled or happy as I should have been and so made some pretty disrespectful decisions and cheated.”
So, why did she cheat on her second boyfriend?
“For the first time in my life I had a lot of male attention and got greedy.”
But wait – this story is far from over. Because it turns out Man Number Two was cheating on her also. Just, you know, for the entire relationship.
“For a long time there was no proof, but I had a really strong feeling about it,” the woman said. “We broke up because of other issues and it was only months later that several other girls got in contact and said they had been involved with him while we were dating.”

‘My sex drive was just too intense.’
For a 24-year-old dude, cheating on his girlfriend will always be a big regret.
“I cheated twice,” he admitted. “My sex drive is much higher than my partners and I wasn’t satisfied with our regular sex life.”
Ah, it truly is a tale as old as time.
Mr Regretful Cheater thinks flirting is A-OK, and only classifies kissing as crossing a line.
He doesn’t buy into the ‘once a cheater, always a cheater’ trope, either: “I think people are capable of change, especially as their relationships become deeper and more adult.”
‘He ghosted me so he could cheat’
While this 23-year-old woman has never cheated, her partner ignored her for three months so he could date someone else.
Yep, he bloody GHOSTED HIS OWN GIRLFRIEND to hook up with another woman.
“My partner came back into my life and then admitted they were dating someone else at the same time,” she told us.
That man belongs in the bin. IN THE BIN.
For this lady, flirting constitutes cheating. Basically, if there are feelings there, and you’re indulging them even without physical contact, you’re doing a dirty on your significant other.
