Hey, Alarmed Nation!
Sorry the site’s been quiet for so long. We’ve been trying to work out some issues with ALARMED Radio, getting talent and such, and for my own part I was trying to focus on my family and crawl out of my own head. But we’re back, and I’ve got something I need to talk to the ladies about.
I recently had the privilege of listening in on some female friends having some girl talk. It was like watching The Alarmed Show in some weird Star Trek mirror world. The conversation eventually turned to the subject of men and side chicks. Each woman had some story to share. Soon enough, they started to wonder how they could prevent men from cheating.
Well, ladies, I’ve given this some serious thought. What can you do to stop your man from cheating on you? The answer is…
Yep, that’s right. Nothing you do or say will stop a man from sleeping around if that’s what he really wants to do. It’s a scary thought, knowing that no matter how much effort you put into a relationship and your man’s happiness, his eye may still wander. This is why it’s called “being faithful.” Faith requires trust, and trust doesn’t always come about as a result of the concrete proof you get from stalking his social media and checking his phone. Sometimes you just have to believe that your man isn’t doing something (or someone) he’s not supposed to.
This isn’t to say you should wear horse blinders in a relationship, only that the question you should ask yourself is less “what should I do to keep my man from cheating,” and more “what should I do if I catch my man cheating?” You can’t control his behavior, but you can control your reaction to his behavior.
