  • - My name is Kelly,

  • and I cheated on my partner about eight years ago.

  • (lighthearted music)

  • I was about 23, 24 and had been with this person

  • for about three years at the time.

  • We hadn't been intimate in about five to six months

  • and a friend of mine invited me to Pride, in Atlanta.

  • There was an all girl party and this girl was there,

  • and she was hitting on me.

  • I let her know that night,

  • I have a girlfriend and she was like, "that's fine."

  • Like, we could be cool.

  • So we partied for two nights straight,

  • and on the second night, something came over me,

  • and I was just like, you know, let's take a shower together

  • when we get back to the hotel room, like,

  • just a shower, like, nothing more.

  • We got back to the hotel room,

  • uh, hopped in the shower,

  • and actually nothing happened while we were in the shower.

  • Like it was straight up like, me washing her down,

  • her doing the same, and like, called it a night.

  • So, it was late, and I was like, ya know what,

  • we have a big-ass king sized bed, ya know, stay the night.

  • I was laying in the bed, she was in like, the chaise.

  • And we was talkin', and then like, the sun was comin' up,

  • and everything was cool, and then she was like,

  • ya know, "I'm so far from you, can I like, come over there."

  • So I was like, alright, ya know,

  • kinda like knowin' I should say no, but also like,

  • I said yes, and I was just like,

  • oh god, what am I getting myself into?

  • But also, I wanna do it.

  • Of course I thought about my partner,

  • but instant gratification takes over so,

  • I can't even remember if it was good, it was like,

  • mediocre, so like, ya know, after you cheat you're like,

  • oh my god, this wasn't even worth it.

  • I felt like shit, ya know, we had been together for like,

  • almost three and a half years.

  • And then a part of me was just like, I'm human,

  • and ya know, this was a part of my desire,

  • and I,

  • I went for it.

  • I haven't done it since then, it's really not in my nature.

  • But I kind've been just like,

  • in six month relationships since then.

  • Like, nothing really sticks, and so,

  • I guess that leads me to the point of maybe,

  • I'm not the relationship person.

  • No, that I know of, my partner never found out.

  • And we don't communicate today, so.

  • I think the reason why people cheat

  • is it's a part of human nature.

  • Ya know, we're sexual beings.

  • Monogamy has kinda been forced upon us in society, ya know,

  • we feel like we have to conform

  • to just being with one person.

  • To be honest, like, I should have just left the relationship

  • if I wasn't happy, or,

  • communicated that to my partner like, in the moment.

  • Maybe a phone call, like hey, ya know,

  • there's this girl and I'm really interested in her.

  • Like, what's going on with us.

  • I mean, it wouldn't have been ideal,

  • but it woulda been honest

  • and also, ya know, I was about 23, 24 at the time.

  • I would have handled it much differently now.

  • (lighthearted music)
