“Everything ends badly. Otherwise, it wouldn’t end.” – Tom Cruise, Cocktail

There are a thousand different reasons for a relationship to end, but the one I never really understood was infidelity. I mean, if you’ve gotten to the point where you are even considering someone else, then I imagine that your relationship is already over. So, what are you waiting for? Why cheat? Why not just put an end to one relationship before you go diving into another?

I don’t know. Call me crazy. Maybe, it’s because I was always the one being cheated on, and know how badly it hurts to be betrayed, that I could never bring myself to put another human being through that kind of pain. And luckily I finally fell in love with a man who felt the same way about it as I do. There is nobody else that either of us want. Even when Steven and I get on each other’s last nerve, we still know that we are a perfect match and wouldn’t risk doing anything stupid to mess up the great relationship we have.

Plus, I made sure to tell him, way back when we started dating, that I was done with unfaithful jerks and if he ever decided to cheat on me instead of just breaking up with me first, he could rest assured that I would throw all of his worldly belongings on the front lawn and light them on fire. And yes, that includes every disc in his X-Files collection, his drum set, and every last piece of Star Wars memorabelia.

What can I say? Karma (and an angry ex) can be a real bitch.

But if you’re not quite the setting fire type, you can always take a page from this ex-girlfriend’s playbook…

If you can’t destroy all of his worldly posessions, you can at least hit him where it hurts and give him one big nationally televised middle finger as a parting Christmas gift.

You go girl!

And to the big fat cheater, I sure hope that other girl was worth it. Dumbass.

  1. I think the poster is kind of pitiful…there’s a lot of effort being put into that. Like, she’s at the football game with a sign about her ex boyfriend, who is probably banging some other girl and couldn’t care less. I dunno. There’s no getting back at people that hurt you – a sign like that implies the person can feel certain emotions, like regret, and I don’t know that a lot of people can. Wow, I’m rambling! I shall stop now! Good post – I agree with a whole lot of it. : )

    1. Very good points. I definitely agree that not everyone is capable of feeling regret, but I still like the idea of the sign…especially knowing how fanatic Packers’ fans are about their team and their tickets. Even if that guy wasn’t sorry about cheating on her, odds are, he was sitting at home, watching that game, thinking, “Son of a bitch, I could have been there”, and that just might be enough payback for me. 🙂
