Given any form of physical cheating if you genuinely felt that it was just a terrible "mistake", "one time thing", etc or if you were simply remorseless, would you be able to continue the relationship without it eating you up? I don't know how people can cheat and have it not bother them or be on their mind constantly. I've been thinking about it because 2 of my good friends are in a serious "loving" relationship and i know he cheated recently with his ex. It doesn't bother him at all apparantly. I cheated once (short drunk makeout) and decided it was better not to say anything... the guilt consumed me within a month... we didn't break up but it did major damage and i wish i told her the night of. That was 6 months ago and the repercussions are still very evident but we're making progress. I guess i'm just asking how guilty would your conscience be? Would you tell you SO?
