You may want to note that, we will look from a female point of view which means the discussion is about how you (all the ladies out there) can save your relation by avoiding to cheat in your committed relationship. So, without further ado, let us begin the article.
1: STOP THINKING ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE
Thinking or fantasizing yourself with some else besides your partner can get you into trouble. It is human nature to think and if you are a teenager your imagination may revolve around romantic dates, kisses, and hugs.
Creating an image in your mind while listening to music or smelling a certain aroma can boost these fantasies, however, you have to make sure that your current partner is in that image with you not anyone else.
If you have a crush on someone you can keep it casual and there is no big deal in having crush because we all are attracted to something in life. This brings us to our next point which is:
2: DO NOT COMPARE YOUR PARTNER WITH SOMEONE ELSE
Here is a question for you – Do you remember the time when you started falling in love with your man? Great, you may also remember that when you were falling in love you were accepting all the flaws and weakness that your man carried with himself.
But now, that you know his weakness and flaws and you cannot handle him. So you give an excuse to cheat on him by comparing him with others. Remember, the man whom you compare to may also have some flaws within him. So, it is advisable to avoid comparing and start being grateful for who you have by your side.
3: DO NOT STOP BEING ROMANTIC
You are in a relationship because you have strong emotions and you are actually romantic, accept that. Every relationship has some kind of romance and you have one job for maintaining it, you guessed it right, be romantic or even if you think you are, increase the degree of the romance.
Why initially, a relationship is in harmony? This is because both partners share romance and sweet gestures like – spending time whenever free, long telephonic conversations, giving sweet gifts and gestures, etc. Just remember, bring all those vibes back that you shared in the initial stage.
4: STOP FLIRTING WITH OTHER MEN
We understand that you can be a person who is a little friendly and getting physical with other dude is not a big deal for you and which is completely fine. Little touching or friendly hugs is casual, but you may want to keep your gestures or emotions in check and understand the difference between the friendly touching and flirty touch.
This is because though you can call it a playfulness, sometimes emotions can get over you or the other person could take the gesture as a flirting sign which can lead to things get out of control. You want to avoid flirting and ask other men not to try to flirt with you too.
5: YOU MUST NOT HAVE ANY “SPECIAL FRIENDS”
We all have best friends (same or opposite sex) in life with whom we share our feelings and secrets. When you are in a relationship there is no doubt that these people will disappear from your life; they will stay and it is your responsibility to introduce them to your partner.
If your best friend is someone who is of the opposite sex this becomes important because if you don’t introduce or just tell your partner about who your companion is, it can become cheating.
6: DO NOT KEEP SECRETS
Here is the point – It is not necessary that people in a relationship have to compromise with their personal choices; your life is still personal even if you are in a relationship.
That being said, if you are someone who thinks that the desire for cheating is strong from your side or even from your partner’s side, you can take this advice. Just allow your partner to access into your personal spaces like PC or Phones or emails. By doing this, cheating on your partner will be much x2 harder.
7: TRY TO THINK THAT YOUR PARTNER IS WATCHING YOU
Do you know what will hurt the most when you are cheating with your partner? If you think it is the guilt and conscience you are absolutely right. The problem, however, is that people often kill their guilt and do not let them prevail.
What does this do? Actually, when you stop fighting with your guilt and allow it to flow there are very little chance that you will try to cheat in a relationship.
So, whenever you are not with your partner and the temptation takes over you to cheat, you simply have to think that your partner is around and watching you, this will instill the guilt and you will stop then and there. Thank us later!
8: DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL WITH OTHER MEN
Stop right there and think calmly, what happens when you drink and get blackout? Let us remind you – you actually say things that you could not, do something that you should not and behave in such a way that you are not, altogether you are a completely different and a wild person.
So, does that mean you should stop drinking? No! We are not suggesting you to stop drinking but drink responsibly. You must drink when your partner is around, you must not drink when you are the only woman surrounded by strangers and opposite-sex friend.
Here is another reason why – After drinking, some men (we repeat) some men could act pervert and could take advantage of you and because you are drunk you could easily develop cheating temptations.
There you go, eight strong ways that could help you fight the temptation of cheating. There is no best or most effective way because there are different ways that can be applied differently plus it depends on the type of relationship you are in. However, the above-mentioned ways could be used in most cases, so you don’t have to worry about that.
