25 Shades of Craig: Cheating, part1


Having a broken heart is one thing, but when your broken heart is caused by someone cheating on you it takes things to a different level.

Most of us have been in a relationship where cheating was involved, it might have been back in high school but the effects from it last a life time.

Cheating is a problem that seems to happen more and more these days. I have always voiced the opinion in my relationships that if you chose to not be with me then don’t be with me, but please don’t cheat on me.

Cheating effects all parties involved whether you want to believe it or not. From the one doing the cheating to the one who you are cheating with and the innocent party at home whom has no clue what is going on, when you cheat on someone you are being disrespectful to everyone involved.

If you have respect for either of the people that you are involved with then you would end one relationship before moving on to the next. When you cheat on someone you are showing that you can’t be trusted, you are not honest and are only thinking about yourself with no regard to how anyone else feels.

I believe there are two types of cheating, emotional and physical. Men tend to physically cheat more whereas women tend to have emotional affairs.

Cheating leaves emotional scars on everyone involved. The one being cheated on will always wonder why their partner cheated on them, why were they not good enough, when are they going to do it again and can will they ever trust again?

There are many layers to cheating next week we will look at the two types of cheating and why people cheat.

At this point, I am wondering what degree and/or type of research Ms. Nicks has completed for her statement about the types of cheating men do versus women or to be an expert in this area whatsoever? This is just another poor example of a column in the CDP that has no relevance to the positive growth of Craig and certainly shows the author's choice of this subject in light of recent events to be a poor decision. Does the paper have so little ability to get decent commentary as to seriously give this much column space to this type of blathering? I feel as though I am in a hair salon or listening to a bunch of high school girls giving their opinion on a subject in which they have no background to give relevant commentary on a subject. Again, no Pulitzer Prize writing here.

justiceortruth - I think you have completely misidentified the problem here. The CDP is merely a reflection of the community it represents. You pose the question "Does the paper have so little ability to get decent commentary as to seriously give this much column space to this type of blathering?"

The answer is a resounding yes. The bulk of letters they receive are incoherently ignorant, much like many members of the community. The news in Craig is slow moving and infrequent. The paper's budget is miniscule.

That's not to say there aren't plenty of smart, capable, great people in Craig. But let's be honest - the letters to the editor ACCURATELY reflect the majority of the community. It's not the paper's fault that Craig is filled with halfwits.

@ Buff_bronc_fan - Whilst I agree with all of your points, it still saddens me that we allow the witch hunts to continue through the use of the 'Letters to the Editor' section with the sole purpose it seems is to destroy career(s) or person(s) and the endless silly columns about nothing of relevance have become tiring.

My comment regarding the budget of the paper would be along the idea of 'you get what you pay for' as few advertisers want to invest in a medium that gives back so little return and is so toxic.

I find the it less than tasteful, so i don't read it.
