there’s never a good time for crazy…

the topic of cheating has been in fairly heavy rotation here at ubf in the last few weeks…what it ishow we feel about it…but we never got to how to deal with it…ladies, one thing is for sure…listening to your crazy single girlfriends is wrong-er than hiring 50 tyson for your wedding reception…

the wrong way – anything that involves hardware stores or jail time

i know it may sound a little self serving, but put the brick down and hear me out…i’ve never had my car keyed or my windshield bricked, and i would imagine that both are fairly inconvenient…however, the driver side billboard and the extra breeze will still pale in comparison to the pain and feelings of betrayal that you are probably experiencing…i would even doubt that any joy you felt about the damage would last as long as the time it takes for him to get that damage fixed…

but…what you have done is almost validated (in his mind) the actual act…you’ve gone from the loving lady friend that he kinda feels bad about cheating on to this rabid minded broad (with a misdemeanor vandalism charge) that was bound to do something crazy eventually…yeah, he got the message about how pissed you were, but that was accompanied by the self inflating satisfaction of knowing that not only were you trolling around looking for him at 2 am, you also cared enough to redecorate his car and improve his ac…you’ve also now been labeled by every dude that reads his facebook status or the “yourlocalcity” gazette as crazy…and some may even believe that it was your craziness that probably drove him to cheat in the first place…

and by the way…this weekend, when he scoops his boys up to enjoy some good natured ribbing about the situation in the car he just retrieved from the body shop, your heart will still be broken…they don’t have shops for those…and later on that night…he’ll be getting sympathy booty from a waitress/bartender that recognized him from the newspaper…

a slightly better way – work it out and stay together

if you truly believe it was a one time thing and will never happen again (decision making should not be listed as a key strength on your résumé’) go ahead and get your “happily ever after” on…but…if you don’t trust him, you should move on…if not, you’ll spend the rest of the relationship driving around town with extra bricks in your trunk trying to catch him doing it again…all that extra weight is horrible for mpg’s and we here at ubf believe in a greener society…

the best way

the best way is quite simple…

– state your disappointment

– end the relationship

– go on with your life…

again…i know it just sounds like i’m looking out for my guys out there but, if he actually cares about you and the way his indiscretions have impacted you, he’ll have to live with the fact that he screwed up a good thing forever…with no negative feelings about you whatsoever to balance that out…

if he didn’t care before, he still doesn’t…but at least you know now and can move on to new opportunities…

fellows…your options are simple…

– don’t cheat…

– don’t get caught…

– when caught, try to create distance immediately…if the police show up, regardless of what happened you will always get preferred seating in the paddy wagon…

just a couple little side notes…this whole post assumed the guy is the cheater and we all know that’s not always the way it goes down…but we also know that a guy is more likely to throw an air punch or two and cry in the car…this also is directed at those in that pre-marriage phase…it’s obviously a little bit more difficult to just “move on” when the offender still picks up your kids from school…

so ubf family, what did i miss…

elrock…stay classy “yourlocalcity”…

    you have any advice for men who you broke up with, but are convinced you’re still “theirs”, and break in your house to go through your caller id and find the name and number of the new man you’re seeing??…and then call him and ask to speak to you because he knows your there because he drove around your apartment building all night and saw that you never came home??

    I would LOVE to hear what you say to him?

  2. Been there done that says:

    You never know what you’re going to if you catch your significant other cheating… but I agree… the most prudent course of action is exercising self-control… now if you loose control… chalk it up as a learning experience for self and do better… Regarding the ‘crazy’ title…if you’re defined your whole life by one ‘bad decision’ then those in the affirmative are not the folks’ opinion you should care about anyway… think it goes something like ‘he without sin, cast the first stone’… but not at the car :))
