I also second the questions to whether or not you've addressed this issue head on. Yes, this person may have qualities that are admirable, but there is no use in justifying their actions because you aren't them. You may spend your life with this person, but you will never know every reason for what they do. As a result, giving them the benefit of the doubt to why they would cheat on you is naive, and it gives them room to do worse things. Also, if he hasn't been acting any differently during these past six months, you have no way of recognizing if something is wrong.

    Provided you have the details of how everything happened, you should:
    a). Tell him how you feel about this.
    b). Take a break. If he really is committed to you, he won't last long before he comes back.
    c). Focus on you. Don't throw forgiveness everywhere if nobody apologized in the first place. Get away from it all. Find something to improve in yourself in the meantime; things like this can have positive side effects as well.
    d). Approach your friends. Don't tread around the situation; hit them when they aren't expecting it: "Is there anything else I need to know? If you don't tell me we probably shouldn't be friends."
    e). Give it time; the truth tends to come out indefinitely.

    To sum it up: you really can't put yourself behind people that treat you unfairly. Yes, it may seem like the righteous thing to do, but in many cases it only gives people a reason to be more selfish.



    Agreed. But if they never face consequences for their actions, what reason do they have to stop? Their conscience? I would find that difficult to believe.
    Why don't we rob a bank? Conscience, fear, guilt, shame - I'm sure there are a lot of reasons why we don't do things that are unacceptable. Maybe we are honest and have integrity. Two good reasons are that we want to feel good about ourselves and don't want to hurt other people. Though some people lack integrity, are narcissistic, psychopaths, or whatever. Remember - I said don't put up with crap.

    I'm not usually one to discuss intimate details of my life on the internet, but for the sake of this thread, I can say that this situation is one that I can unfortunately say I relate to far too well. You said you want to hear from an INFJ with similar experiences, and that's what you're going to get.

    I've been in the same situation you have at least five or six times. I've gotten close to people, gotten into relationship with them, and its when things get really close and intense that I find out the inevitable - they're been cheating on me.

    The most recent examples go back five years, three years and two months respectively.

    About five years ago I got into a relationship with a girl. It was nice, close, intimate, and it lasted for over a year and a half. Half way through it, I found out she was getting her jollies off with some guy on the internet. She begged and cried for me to not leave her, and for some reason, I didn't. Some time later, I criticised her for treating someone in a way that I thought was mean and cruel to them.

    The next day she texted me a picture of her kissing some other guy. We haven't talked since.

    I kept to myself for a while after that, and about three years ago I fell in love with a very old friend of mine. It had been building over a couple of years, until we just came out and said it to each other. For the time it lasted, it was perfect.

    We had almost everything in common, we could spend 12 hours in each other's company and still not run out of things to talk about. She was thoughtful, inspiring and emotionally uplifting, and it was the happiest I've ever been. It's the closest I've ever been to anyone, before or since.

    About seven months in, a friend of hers who had a not-even-remotely-secret dislike of me decided to spend lots of time with her, whilst refusing to even acknowledge my existence. This caused some obvious tension. I was angry because she refused to help resolve the situation or stand up for me. He didn't react at all.

    A few weeks later, I was dumped. A few weeks after that, they were a couple.

    The whole thing threw me off balance, a balance I don't think I've ever been able to get back. Just like you, it made me feel like the friendships I had with people were convenient little lie, without any real integrity. All I've learned from these experience is that people will do whatever they think they can get away with, which has completely killed me ability to trust people.

    I shut myself off from interacting with people completely for over a year, until I started spending time talking to a woman by the name of Nickey. She was dealing with a lot of stuff herself, and she was in a similar place to me. It was a very slow process, but we got closer over the space of a year.

    Past experiences have made me very unwilling to trust people or get close to them, even as friends, and this wasn't an easy experience. But she constantly tried to reassure me that she understood, that she couldn't even contemplate cheating on me, that it wasn't in her nature, blah blah blah.

    About two months ago, while attending E3 in Los Angeles, she let me use her phone so I could get calls during the event. Some guy texted her with words that were... lets just say... not the sort of thing a friend says to a friend. When I confronted her about it, she attempted to kill herself. I haven't seen her since that day. The sad thing is... I still want her back.

    My self worth is shot from the experience, and I haven't socialised with anyone in months. I don't want to be around people, or get close to anyone whose interested, and I know there people who are.

    Why you would want to stay with this man is beyond me. Cheating is a choice, a willing action by a person that can act upon of their own free will. If he cared, he never would have done it in the first place. And it will probably happen again.

    You deserve better. This feeling of loneliness and worthlessness you have right now is entirely his fault, and it will not go away unless you give yourself the respect and love you deserve, and find someone who can give you the same. Take it from someone with far too much experience with these situations, because I'm a complete and utter mess from putting myself through the same thing a half dozen times.

    That will probably be the first and last time I'll ever post something so personal about my life on here. I hope you can acknowledge the point I'm trying to make, and do the right thing for yourself.

    Why don't I rob banks? Well, to start, the risk of doing so is not worth the consequences, jail time, court costs, lawyer fees, and the distress by me, my family, and my friends. Let's say I took the risk of doing so and got away with it. If the bank fails to show me any reason to not go back and steal from them again, like, you know, adding more security, putting a fine on my head, or showing any effort to stop it in the future, there is a high probability I will repeat my actions in the future because it's easy, risk-free, and rewarding (for me, at last). When someone is oblivious to the harm they've done, they don't comprehend their actions as wrong.

    Conscience, fear, guilt, shame - I'm sure there are a lot of reasons why we don't do things that are unacceptable. Maybe we are honest and have integrity.
    Yes, but in some situations the guilt, shame and fear are nonexist until the perpetrator looks back on what they've done, which can be years afterwords.

    Two good reasons are that we want to feel good about ourselves and don't want to hurt other people. Though some people lack integrity, are narcissistic, psychopaths, or whatever. Remember - I said don't put up with crap.
    I agree with what you've said here, but not everyone a). realizes what they're doing when they're doing it or b). focuses on how their actions affect others. Heck, a lot of people go great lengths to make their actions "justifiable" so they don't feel guilty.

    That's nothing. Seriously. Don't base your entire future on 540 days. That is a seriously bad move to get chronologically attached.

    He deserves a kick in the balls, and the bitch he slept with deserves to have her hair pulled out.

I still realize all the good qualities he has, I still adore him, but this is always in the back of my mind going "Do you really think he's a good person? Look at what he did to you - is that acceptable moral behavior?" Of course it's not. But it is getting better, we're living together now because the girls I was living with, his old roommates, decided to break the lease...it's been a crazy, emotionally fucked up summer...
    If he is begging and pleading and being honest and making efforts to communicate and to understand you and really being prince-fucking-A-charming, then great, there's hope, but if he's just letting this slip into oblivion by letting "water pass under the bridge" I would be hesitant to consider this a one time "Oopsy, I slipped on a banana peel, and I fell down, and my dick ended up inside her, how did that happen?"

    The friends though, Jesus Christ, I'd be so pissed at all of them for not telling you. Fuck that. If they were really your friends they would have told you, that's my take on it. I told a friend of mine when his wife made a pass at me, knowing that it could risk our firendship, but I did it, and all turned out OK. If I would not have told him, and then 6 months later he finds out she is screwing around with someone, then I would have been guilt tripped for knowing she had that potential, and that he was not aware of it.
