Okay, so we all know that relationships are filled with “he said” “she said” and “they said” but do we really take the time out to hear direct from the horse’s mouth? Or are we quick to jump to conclusions and screw things up? How do you deal with reports about your significant other? When someone tells you they saw your man with another woman, do you (a) mention it in passing hoping he tells you the truth or (b) go all Rambo on his ar*e and start tossing accusations and bringing all his shit up?
When it comes to accusations, especially the cheating kind, it becomes hard for even the most rational of individuals to act mature and reasonable. Indeed, there are some kind of rumors you hear about your partner that you can identify as false; the kind you can defend without the shadow of doubt to his/her innocence; but then again, there are some rumors that blend perfectly with doubts you’ve had in your mind leading to bitterness and distrust.
Where are you? Who are you with? Did you sleep with him/her? These questions are repeated to the point that every move they make leads to an investigation. You start snooping and sniffing around for clues, screening messages, monitoring all movement, payments, work activities etc. etc. etc. signaling that the relationship has lost its footing, approaching its demise.
