Relationship Advice: My Girlfriend Caught Me Texting My Ex-Girlfriend And Accuses Me Of Cheating!

In the past Relationship Advice Wednesdays, we’ve had love struck friends wondering what to do with his girlfriend who is mistreating him. There’s that guy who took his girl for granted, but wants her back. Then we got the girl who was torn between two lovers.

Well this week, we’ve got a letter from a guy who has been accused of cheating after his girlfriend caught him texting his ex. Let’s hear his story:

Hey LD,

My girlfriend and I just had a huge fight! She caught me texting my ex and now she’s accusing me of cheating on her. I wasn’t kissing my ex or going on dates with her. I haven’t even slept with her in months since we broke up. How can that be cheating? –Not A Cheater

Relationship Advice:

Hey Not A Cheater,

Let’s get down to brass tacks. Cheating… What is cheating? Sure, the definition of this horrible act is subjective, but you betrayed your girlfriend’s trust. You said she “caught” you texting, it means that you never told her that you were talking to your ex. You probably didn’t even want to tell her or want her to know because it might “hurt” her. Well, the fact that you already did. You entertaining your ex behind your new girlfriend’s back is an act of dishonesty. Dishonesty is one of the many branches of cheating.

I do not blame your girlfriend if she gets mad at you or if she even breaks up with you. You broke her trust and now she feels like she’s just a second option. By the way, it is a known fact that you do not have to engage in sexual intercourse to consider it cheating. What is your business texting your ex anyway? Do you still have feelings for her? Do you still love her? An ex is an ex for a reason, your relationship ended because something was not working. You’ve both been broken up for months, why didn’t you guys keep in contact during the times you were both available?

Your ex might just be trolling your new relationship to know if you’re still into her and she just needs a little ego boost. Don’t feed the troll. If you still love your ex, do your new girlfriend a favor and let her go. She deserves someone better than you.

If you love your new girlfriend, you need to apologize to her and assure her there’s nothing going on with you and your ex. Tell her you’re an idiot for even doing it, you’re not going back to your ex and she’s not a second option.

What Relationship Advice Can I Give You About Your EX?

As for your ex, cut her off. You don’t need someone who can potentially put a wedge between your relationship with your new girlfriend. Leave the past in the past and move forward by nurturing your new relationship.

I hope this helps!

He Likes You. He Likes You Not! Here’s How To Know If He’s Interested In You!

He likes you. Three words that we always want to hear from somebody confirming that the guy we’re crushing on likes us, too. But that isn’t always the case, isn’t it?

Are you sick and tired of guessing if your date is interested in you? Have you ever wondered if your office crush likes you, too? Or are you still in that stage where you’re trying to get that hottie from chem lab to even notice you?

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just read their minds?

Picture this:

A cute guy walks by and his forehead lights up and there’s a sign saying “I like you.”

Seriously, that’d make our lives so much easier! Unfortunately, we aren’t living in a perfect world and men aren’t high tech robots like that.

He likes you. He likes you not! It’s time to get an answer from that age old question!

Sign That He Likes You #1 : He Leans Forward When You Talk

It’s universal knowledge that leaning forward is a body language that conveys a sign of interest. Anyone who leans forward when you’re talking means he is interested in what you have to say or he wants to hear, smell or even see you better.

Next time you’re with that man candy, observe his body language when you talk. If he leans forward and his arms starts playfully brushing against yours, he’s itching to get close to you and touch you.

Sign That He Likes You #2 : He Makes The First Move

We all know that in this day and age, women are go getters. They can date, text or talk to whoever they want to. Some guys like that, but let’s not forget the ladies who still believe in the old fashioned customs of dating. For women, like me, who are shy – we might not find out if a guy likes us unless they ask us out or make the first move.

In this case, a guy who initiates is a guy who is interested to get to know you. It’s simple, when you catch a guy’s attention and/or interest – even if you’re across the room, they’ll reach out to you. They’ll come to you and strike up a conversation. They might even ask your number or just ask you out on a date point blank.

Men are simple creatures and a guy who likes you will make the first move so he can talk to you, get close to you or even spend time with you.

Sign That He Likes You #3 : His Pupils Dilate When He Looks At You

No, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s on drugs if his pupils are dilated when he looks at you. Pupil dilation is also a sign of attraction; A study indicated that our pupils dilate up to three times larger its normal size when we see someone we are physically or sexually attracted to.

So the next time you go on a date and you see your date’s eyes dilate when he sees you, if he’s not high – it probably means he saw something he likes or someone he feels excited about.

Sign That He Likes You #4 : He’s Mirroring Your Actions

This is something that we do not notice easily, but it is real. Mirroring is a subconscious imitation of another person’s behavior, speech or nonverbal gestures. It often happens when we are around people that we are close to like family and friends or people with whom we share similar attitudes and beliefs – even the ones that we have not yet discovered.

We may not admit this, but we are all vain in our own way. We are attracted to people who are slightly similar to us or who share similar interests with us. When a guy mirrors your movements, it may be a sign that you two have things in common and he is interested in you. You’ll know it’s mirroring when you grab your glass and he takes his, too. You’re stuffing your face with that garlic bread then he starts taking a bite as well. More often than not, he doesn’t even know he is doing it – but mirroring is often an unconscious tell when men like someone.

Sign That He Likes You #5 : He Will Tell You

Like I always say, men are simple creatures and easy to understand. When they like you, they will tell you straight up. They won’t play games, they won’t confuse you, they won’t send you mixed signals, they won’t tell you they’ll call but never do, they won’t keep you hanging because only boys do that.

Guys who do that are still immature and they are not worth your time. Trust me when I say, REAL MEN who really like you will not beat around the bush. They’ll call you, tell you and show you how much they like you. Period.

Happy Couple Secret #2: They Say Thanks

Happy couples are naturally grateful people. No matter how busy their day can be, they always see to it that they say “thank you” to each other even if it’s just about little things. I always say thank you to my guy everyday for picking up food for the week or he thanks me for cooking his food. We just express how grateful we are because demonstrating gratitude is another way of showing how happy we are in our union.

Happy Couple Secret #3: They Greet Each Other With A Kiss

Sharing a kiss has a warm and welcoming effect that can send positive reverberations through your relationship.

Happy couples greet each other hello and goodbye with a kiss. There’s something about that gesture that just makes you feel at home and warm. Imagine coming home and being welcomed with a kiss? Without so many words, you know it translates to “I’m happy to see you!” or if you’re leaving for work it could also mean “I’ll miss you.”

For people who have a different love language, kissing is their way of expressing their feelings and affection. If they are the type who don’t say much, remember – actions speak louder than words. *wink*

Happy Couple Secret #4: They Never Miss A Chance To Give Each Other Hugs

Happy couples take at least 5 minutes to hug each other in the morning or even before going to bed. This type of physical affection is just another way of showing and expressing love without saying so much. Plus, hugging is a focused moment with you and your partner that brings warm and fuzzy feelings inside.

Happy Couple Secret #5: They Do Stuff Together

Happy couples have hobbies that they do together. It can be reading a book, watching a movie, cooking or even cleaning the house. Doing stuff together makes you bond, it improves intimacy and it promotes better teamwork between the two of you. After all, it takes two to tango in a relationship, might as well extend it by doing regular activities together.

Happy Couple Secret #6: They Tell Each Other Sweet Nothings

Happy couples text each other sweet nothings just for the sole purpose of making each other smile or even melt. While making grand gestures to express your love for each other is romantic, whispering/telling each other sweet nothings is a classic that never gets old. It’s a simple gesture with big rewards! Personally, it still makes my heart flutter when my guy does it to me.

Happy Couple Secret #7: They Spoil Each Other

No matter how long you’ve been together, happy couples still spoil each other. It doesn’t always have to be material spoilage, something as simple as breakfast in bed, doing laundry, folding it and putting the clothes away is an inexpensive way to spoil your girlfriend/boyfriend. Unconsciously, you’re both competing to see who can be nicer and this could even help you guys fall in love with each other everyday.

Happy Couple Secret #8: They Explore New Things

This can also fall under #4, but this one needs to be explained a little more.

One of the best ways to explore new things is to travel together. Not only are you going to discover new places, you’re also going to experiencing new things or even awaken the daredevils inside you in your new adventure.

Exploring new things gives you a chance to get to know your partner once more and it can uncover a different side of them that you’ve never seen before. You’ll discover new things about each other which can bring you closer, strengthen your bond and intimacy.

BONUS: They Cuddle While They’re Sleeping
