I’m no spring chicken but I’m still in my mid-20’s. That means that I’m still going thru the ups and downs of dating,relationships,and my fair share of men drama and I know that my listeners do too!! So send us your questions and check back every week for our relationship chats with counselor, author, and relationship expert, Steven James Dixon!
First e-mail question from Sienna from Indy:
Sienna: I am not married, but I have been in a relationship for over a year and a half with a man that cheated on me.While he wants us to work through it and move forward, I must ask,with men is the saying “once a cheater, always a cheater” true?
Steven James Dixon (SJD):
I do not believe in “Once A Cheater, Always A Cheater” but I don’t believe an apology makes it alright either. Anytime a cheating incident occurs in a relationship I suggest counseling for the couple. The couple needs to find out why the person cheated and what can be changed or adjusted to make sure that the cheating doesn’t take place again. Saying to a person “I’m sorry that I cheated” does not begin to fix the problem. YOU know that the problem has not been fixed and that’s why you can’t move forward. Being in a relationship with a cheater is driving a car with bad breaks. You are nervous all the time, you can’t get comfortable but most of all you can’t trust your breaks (partner).
