For a single/dating person to get cheated on and stay around... they either have no self esteem or are stupid.
Yes this is true. And even if the cheater DOES really reform and never cheats again. The person who was cheated on will always suspect and be worried. So even if the statement isn't true, it might as well be. Trust is everything in a relationship. Once its broken at the most core level, then things can never return to how they were. I'm not saying the people can't stay together or "work things out" but it will be different.
