I believe what goes around comes around. That statement was so true. I say this true because on me and my ex-boyfriend had been dating for five months and he cheated on me with one of his best friends. I was so mad I just wanted to break up that point but I couldn’t because I loved him with all my heart and I knew he was really sorry for what he had done. So off course I forgave him. But then on March 26, 2007 we broke up and I found out that he was cheating on me with another girl. After one year I was so mad. Then we were suppose to go to prom together and he went with me to buy my dress and everything but then before we even broke up he asked her to prom. So after prom he started dating the girl he had cheated on me with even though he sat their and promised me he didn’t even like that girl. I wanted to fight her but then I thought to my self no guy is worth fighting over, going to jail, and then getting either suspended or either expelled over especially that one. So then they started dating not even three weeks after they broke up. I told him that every guy she had went with she had cheated on. So I mean what made him think that she was going to be different with him. Well we stop talking and he start talking junk about me then she told everyone at school that I cheated on him and all this other junk. It mad me madder because he’d promised me that wouldn’t happen and that he would still be friends if we broke up. He’d never ever broken a promise to me. I couldn’t believe him. It was like since she didn’t like she wouldn’t like him talk to me or anything else. I hurt me so bad because he was like my best friend he only person I could talk to about anything and everything. They had been dating like a week or two maybe not even that long and she went to somebody’s party and come to find out the next day they broke up because she kissed another guy while they were dating. She was caught cheating. She started crying and said she was sorry like a million times, but he still broke up with her. I thought it was so funny to watch what he did to me get done right back to him. He hurt me and then she hurt him. That’s the reason I believe that statement so much.
