I Asked 10 People If They'd Rather Be 'Cheated On' Or Be 'The One They're Cheating With'
Madisson Morris

Asking someone if they’d rather be cheated on or if they’d rather be the one they’re cheating with is definitely a million-dollar question.

Truthfully this question is a great way to get to know someone on a deeper level. Despite the controversial issues and difficulty of this question, I was ultimately surprised by the outcome.

1. The one they are cheating with - Male

“No one wants to get cheated on because that makes you feel like you aren’t enough for them, but if you’re the one they are cheating with it makes you think you’re better than someone.”

2. Be cheated on - Female

“Life afterwards would suck at first, but then I wouldn’t be known as ‘that’ girl. Like if I got cheated on, then yeah it will suck, but I’m not at fault. But if I was the other girl, then I would get sh*t on forever.”

3. Be cheated on - Female

“I couldn’t live with the consequences of ruining a relationship and making another girl feel like she wasn’t enough for him.”

4. The one they are cheating with - Male

“Being cheated on means that person doesn’t like you or want to be with you. If they cheat with you that means they actually like you.”

5. Be cheated on - Female

“Because I would never want to be part of the reason someone gets hurt. I know how it feels to be cheated on and I would never want to be the person to make another feel that way. I don’t think anyone deserves that kind of treatment ever.”

6. Be cheated on - Male

“It’s closure, they clearly didn’t want to be with you.”

7. The one they are cheating with - Female

“If you were being cheated on, you would feel not good enough. You are not trying to intentionally hurt someone, but if you’re the one getting cheated on you would feel even worse.”

8. The one they are cheating with - Male

“Because it’s easier to break someone’s heart than it is to be heartbroken.”

9. Be cheated on - Female

“I’ve been cheated on before and I hate the feeling, but even more I can’t imagine making someone else feel that way. Getting cheated on sucks and it hurts, but down the road like in a few years you can see how you’ve grown from it and it makes you stronger. It almost sometimes becomes a joke with your friends like ‘Oh well at least he’s not a cheating loser like ___.’.”

10. The one they are cheating with - Female

“If I were cheated on, any self-esteem I had would be gone.”

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
