My friend Nathan has been dating “Ella” exclusively for a little over a year now. He recently found out the reason Ella’s first marriage ended was because of infidelity, on her part. I could tell that this news was really bothering him because Nathan broke up with his fiancee three years ago because she was cheating on him.
Obviously, he is concerned about the type of woman he is drawn to. He wonders why he seems to attract the women that have a problem staying faithful. I tell him that women do it all the time and someone’s past should not be held against them. What do you think?
Do some men think that female cheaters are not worthy of redemption? A lot of women forgive cheating, overlook a partner’s past and find a way to handle it. Is it harder for men to do this?
Have you ever noticed some kind of behavior pattern in the people that you have dated? Has that been a good thing or bad thing?
Do you trust your judgment when it comes to picking people that you date? Do you have moments when you second guess yourself?
