So I got a text from Thumbelina today telling me about a friend of hers who is causing quite a bit of turmoil on the dating front by simultaneously sleeping with several people while also trying to snag Thumbelina’s new boyfriend.
Now I have absolutely no issues with what people choose to do with their fun parts in their spare time. If you want to sleep with two guys, three chicks, and a mime all at the same time then more power to you. Sex is fun, particularly when everyone involved is safe and well intentioned. My only problem stems from a longstanding belief that you just don’t fuck with other people’s relationships.
I can’t stand people that cheat. It’s a selfish and hurtful act that can easily be avoided if the person who’s tempted to stray would just admit that they’re no longer willing to be in a committed relationship. The sting of finding out your significant other no longer wants to be with you is nothing compared to finding out that they’ve lied to you and broken any trust you once had. Don’t be a cheater.
The “other person” in this scenario is not any less guilty than the cheater. If you willingly become involved with someone whom you know is in a committed relationship, you’re making a conscious decision to hurt another human being. Most likely a human being who doesn’t even know you and has certainly never done anything to hurt you in return. This reeks of a lack of self respect and a total disregard for common decency. Don’t enable a cheater.
And if all of this isn’t enough to sway you from this type of bad behavior just remember, karma’s only a bitch if you are.
