He had cheated on me before we even left for Australia
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
I am going to try to get straight to the point. Basically, I started dating '*Eric' just over 3 years ago. Immediately he was always calling me and saying 'I love you'. He was my first boyfriend, and I loved it. I had no experience prior to him. We dated through high school (forgot to mention he's a year younger than me). After I graduated, I went to first year college while he was finishing last year of high school. We had planned to go to Australia after he had graduated. Then we did and so we left. We traveled and worked around Australia for a year. I had the best time of my life. Then, we came home, and my friend who I hadn't seen in a year told me what she had heard while I was away. He had cheated on me before we even left for Australia. I was so shocked, that I confronted him right away. He admitted but was so sorry. I am young I know, but I grew up without much in my life, so he had become my life. My dad had past away when I was 4, and my brother didn't socialize with me. I have one friend who I can trust, and it hurts me so much to know my reality. Anyways, I am having a very difficult time dealing with this. I want to take him back because he is the only one in my life that knows me. But it hurts me to think of the past, which I do every second. I don't have many people to talk to and I feel like all hope is lost for me. Like I'll never find anyone... EVER! I can't help it. I'm sorry for this mess but I haven't beable to say all this at once because people judge and I am very councious of that. Anyways, what do I do and how do I get over this??? PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
Thank you! :)

My advice is to forgive him for cheating.
Make sure you talk it through with him and get the full story from him. Tell him you are forgiving him because you love him but that if it happens again then you will not forgive him.
This sounds like what will work best for you.
