"My guy friend was chilling with his friends when a group of girls came over. One of the girls asked if it was cool if her boyfriend dropped by. When he got there, my friend instantly recognized him ... because he was supposed to be my boyfriend, too. I was heartbroken."

"Everything was going great with this girl, but then I went out of town and she started acting weird over the phone. When I got back [from my trip], I went over to her house to see what was up and saw a truck outside. When I knocked, some dude opened the door."

"I was convinced my man was cheating on me, but he not only denied it, he turned it around and accused *me* of cheating on *him*. We eventually broke up. 

"A couple years later, I was having dinner with mutual friends when one of them mentioned that my ex was in town. They casually said that he was back to take a paternity test for a kid who was conceived precisely at the time I suspected he was cheating. Motherfucker!"

"In this case, I was the cheater (and I'm not proud of it). I had a guy in my bed when my boyfriend at the time came in from out of town to surprise me. ... My boyfriend walked in through another door, completely missing the guy, but totally busting me because of he had left behind his wallet. Definitely not my proudest moment."

"I had a hunch something was up, so I went to the bar where my boyfriend was a regular. I caught that son of a bitch walking hand-in-hand with another girl on the way to their car. Who knows what they were going to do?"

"I got home a bit earlier than usual and caught my boyfriend at the time in bed with another guy. A scuffle popped off. It got bad. The 'other' guy ran off and we started beating the shit out of each other. I remember my head being smashed on the ground, so I grabbed a nearby table and a vase came tumbling down, slashing my then-boyfriend’s arm."

"Catching my man cheating also caused a rift in my relationship with my sister — because my sister's friend was the one who saw him holding hands with another woman in public. Obviously, my sister told me right away. I've since learned not to kill the messenger."
