Do not forget that some people have the mindset that if a guy cheats on a girl in a relationship she has some moral "right" to destroy his property or spread the news of his infidelity around his workplace in an attempt to ruin him professional career.Caiphus said:I'm talking about my experience purely. I have a friend right now that is actively trying to drive a couple apart so he can get his end wet. I'm not too happy about it, but I don't think it's my lookout. It doesn't help our friendship, but it won't ruin it.game-lover said:Are you talking in general or just specifically with you?Caiphus said:Might have been useful if the OP had clarified his question beyond the one sentence in his post.
What overwhelming negative response are we talking about? Getting served with divorce papers? Getting dumped? My friends have cheated on their girlfriends before, and I might have given them a verbal slap on the wrist, but that's about it, so the peer pressure isn't overwhelming.
Because if you mean the former, I can confidently say other people have severed many a friendship over this type of situation.
For a variety of reasons: One knows friend is cheating and outs friend so said friend gets pissed. Or doesn't out them but they clash because of huge judgements all around. Or ends friendship as soon as it's figured out because they know consider cheating friend toxic to be near.
I don't know anyone who has cheated. But I'm pretty damn sure we wouldn't be friends anymore if I knew what they were up to. Not unless things changed.
Some people consider it to be a terrible thing to do... I think it's just a thing that can be done and the practical damage that occurs from it should be proportionate to how much scorn the individual is deserving of.
