If your friends are pressuring you to take revenge on your cheating ex boyfriend you might feel as though that's the only acceptable path to take. Believe me there are plenty of country songs about the need to take revenge on cheating ex boyfriends. Many women feel that is the only way to go if a man cheats on them. At least, that's what they tell you when it's your guy that has cheated. The odds are good that if it was their guy who cheated they would feel just as lost, confused, hurt, and angry as you feel right now.

Should you get back at your cheating ex boyfriend?

The short answer is no. Revenge only provides temporary comfort. It won't keep you warm at night and the satisfaction you'll experience at first is very short lived. Eventually, you'll be back in the same condition you were in before you sought your revenge (lost, confused, hurt, and angry).

Even worse, depending on how severe the revenge is, you may lose any hope you ever have of working things out. Revenge can be the loneliest path to take when hearts are on the line.
If revenge is so terrible, why does everyone seem to say that is the best way to go?

It's easy to say what you would do if your boyfriend cheats on you. It's another story though when it is your boyfriend that has done the cheating. When it is your heart and your future plans that are on the line you discover you may not want to lash out and get revenge. You might find that you want to cry, scream, stomp your feet, and scratch the eyeballs out of the other woman's eyes. You probably won't instantly think of revenge. You're probably also not interested in hearing other women tell you what they would do to exact their revenge if it were them.

In the end, you don't need revenge. Chances are he feels terrible over what has happened. He may have even punished himself with guilt far more than you could hope to by taking out your revenge. The best thing you can do in this situation is take a step back and decide if you want to let his cheating be the end for you and your relationship or you want to end things on your own terms. When you do that you'll be in a much better position to make plans for your future and take control of your life back once and for all.

Warning! Don't do one single thing to try to get your ex back until you've put this one step into action:
