I am never surprised when I hear of a dating relationship ending because someone is caught two-timing. Atlanta offers a lot of “options” to people that make it easy to go back to the “single buffet” when your plate is already full.
It’s happened to me before and it definitely stings when you find out. Despite the disappointment, I am always happy to have found out when I did. I think technology is making it harder to pull off the shady behavior that comes with juggling multiple relationships. Between Facebook, twitter, and all our fancy pants smart phones, a cheater has to be really crafty to go undetected. Ah, but that doesn’t stop them from trying.
Why is it so tempting to carry on full-fledged relationships with people? I always want to ask the people, “Aren’t you exhausted from all the lying and juggling around?”
Even when you try to avoid all that two-timing drama in your own love life, sometimes you are stuck in other people’s drama. Recently, I saw a woman my guy friend was really serious about at the Hartsfield-Jackson holding hands with some man.
It took me the entire ride to baggage claim before I got the courage to send him the text message: “Hey are you still seeing < shady woman's name > ?”. I felt awful shattering his image of her. What would you do?
Is it a good idea to tell on someone when you know they are lying? Would you want to know?
