Cheating is a conscious decision. This means that faithfulness is too.
You can decide to stay true if you really want to, and you respect your partner enough. Part of the trick is to always remind yourself that you have someone special in your life, and you don’t need nobody else. Take a look at what I mean exactly…
ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU’RE NO LONGER SINGLE…BOTH PRIVATELY AND PUBLICLY
Sometimes, people take too long to come to terms with the reality of their dating status. But to be honest, unless you do, you’ll always have a problem living up to your duties in that relationship. Some even take off their ring in public, and put it back on around their partner. It makes cheating easier because you’re automatically single at that point, and temptations will come. If you never acknowledge you’re dating in public, it’s high time you turned a new leaf. Tell your friends and those potential side partners so they know to respect what you have.
TALK ABOUT YOUR PARTNER IN YOUR CONVERSATIONS
In those moments when you’re having a chat with someone whom you fear you might begin to get attached to, or who might begin to get attached to you, bring up mentions of your partner in your conversations. Talk about something they did or say that is related to the topic of discussion. Not in an annoying manner though, but in a way that is polite, to give them the message that you’re proud of who you’ve got, and there’s no room for accommodation.
SHOW THEM OFF
Save your partner’s contacts on your phone with a unique pet name that suggest to other people that they’re the one. The idea is to have a constant reminder that you’re taken, and this should also serve as a deterrent to the potential relationship wrecker. Instead of using their actual names to save their phone number, a special pet name is more ideal. Even if the ‘relationship wrecker’ isn’t put off at the sight of something that sweet, you likely will when you realise you have someone special in your life already, and you’re about to ruin it.
It also helps to use a photo of yourself and your partner as your phone’s wallpaper. Whatever you have to do, do it, just make sure you’re sending that “I am taken” message.
Well, to be honest, cheating is not easy to overcome, so I don’t think there’s anything wrong with seeking spiritual assistance. Ask for spiritual help, even as you do your part.
