First off, I want to say that I feel quite a bit of sympathy for you. Having a girlfriend caught cheating is never fun, and if it’s happened to you and you’re already this far, then chances are that you’ve already spent quite a bit of time depressed, in denial, in doubt, etc, etc…
But today we end all of that. You see, by having a plan for what to do next, you can more effectively take action. And taking action generally helps take the pain away.
Just think to yourself, what’s done is done, now the ball is in your court. You have to decide what to do now, and really when it comes down to it…
You’ve got 4 choices now that you’re girlfriend caught cheating has forced this situation on you:
#1 – Do Nothing
This is probably the worst option, but I’ll list it anyways if for no other reason than to tell you not to do this.
Taking action is seriously one of the best ways to get through an affair. Sitting idly and stewing in your own emotions is NOT recommended.
That being said, there’s nothing wrong with biding your time if you DO have a plan. Just make sure you know what you’re waiting for.
#2 – Get Gone
This is the next option, and is actually quite reasonable.
If you feel like now that you’ve caught your girlfriend cheating there’s simply no way to go on with the relationship…Well then ditchin’ her and getting out of the relationship ASAP may be the best thing for you.
And that’s really who we’re here for, right?
If you’re girlfriend has cheated on you, do NOT be afraid to leave. Most relationships never recover from an affair, and you’re under no obligation to put yourself through any more pain.
#3 – Revenge
This can come in one of two forms:
You can either go and cheat on your girlfriend. Get back at her by doing the exact same thing to her that she did to you.
Of course, the down side is that she may just not care. I mean, if she’s cheated on you, then surely she’s prepared for you to cheat on her…right?
Alternatively, you could stay with her, but do your best to remind her how much she’s hurt you EVERY single day you’re together. If you have revenge in your heart, then this is probably your best option.
Nothing is quite as emotionally damaging as being racked with guilt every single day.
#4 – Heal the Relationship
This is both the most difficult and the most rewarding option that you have presented to you here.
I’m not going to lie to you…Saving the relationship now that you already know about your girlfriend’s affair is going to be very hard for both of you. BUT…
In the end it can be very worth it, especially if you really truly love your girlfriend.
However, unfortunately I don’t have the space here to cover exactly how to heal a relationship, but lucky for you I can still help answer your questions.
There’s no reason that your girlfriend’s affair should ruin your relationship…It’s still salveagable. Click here to find out how You can save your relationship after an affair.
