So you’ve decided to take back a cheater. I do not know what your specific situation was. Are you married? Were you on a break? Was it sort of unclear as to whether or not you were meant to be monogamous, but you know deep down you were? Was this a first-time offense after an otherwise long and committed relationship? Did you also cheat, so you feel you’re all even now? There are a lot of possible circumstances surrounding cheating, and only you really know—deep down—if you can take back a cheater and make it work. That being said, just because you’re the only one who knows, you aren’t the only one with an opinion on the matter. It’s hard for your friends to see you take back a cheater, for many reasons. Here are ways your close friends may judge you for taking back an unfaithful man.
They may think you’re codependent
They may say things that insinuate you struggle with codependency issues. They might think the only reason you took him back is that you’re afraid to be alone, so you’d rather be with a cheater than be by yourself.
