It is in fact true and I hate to say it, but anyone can meet someone else or be intimate with someone at any stage in a relationship whether there is a title attached or not, it’s just whether we label it as cheating or not. It hurts either way if you care about someone.

At times, I’ve felt completely devoid of any agency, or a reliable process by which to judge my own decisions and actions. With work being so new and my relationship constantly presenting new, rare challenges – how can I know what’s right?
