What would you do if you had the urge to cheat? Would you talk to your partner to work on fixing what you felt was wrong?

Did it work if you did or was the damage of the thought enough to breakdown communication?

It depends on why I was wanting to cheat. If I'm horny and need to get laid, basically just need the physical intimacy, I'd talk to my husband about it. If I'm driven to a point where I need the emotional validation/intimacy of an affair, I'd just leave. It may sound cold, but at that point, the relationship is already broken as far as I'm concerned and I'm not sticking around to suffer any longer.

Examine the reasons for wanting to cheat, and either deal with the underlying problem, or end the relationship.

I don't think there is a valid reason to cheat. If you cannot keep your commitments - inform your partner and move on. I'm not suggesting it - my guess is that the grass is not as green on the other side as you think - but I don't know enough about your circumstance.

Simple rule - honesty is the best policy! Or stated another way - Do unto others as you would have done to you.

The urge to cheat would be a sign about how my relationship was going. I would discuss it with my partner to determine next steps.

I'd work through it on my own. If it was a problem with me at least. If there was something lacking in the relationship I'd talk to him about it. That said, even when we had tough times I never felt a need or urge to cheat. Just not that kind of person.

I have been in this situation before if I feel the need to stray I talk to my partner about what is going on, I don't actually come out an say "Hey I have thought about cheating on you" I simply make the comment that things aren't going the way I think they should and something needs to be done. If sex is lacking that is why I have toys but I also mention hey more intimate things need to happen If that doesn't work and things still continue to go south it is time to move on without cheating. I wish you luck in whatever you maybe going through.

I'd talk about it to work on fixing things. Communication and authenticity are two important things for me. When I am sexually satisfied with a partner, I don't feel the urge to cheat. If I do, it means something's wrong or missing.

I can't condone cheating, no matter the circumstances. I've been cheated on, twice. It sucks and I would never do that to another person.

I'd talk about it and channel the desire to something with her

I have only felt this once. We were in a long-distance relationship phase, and I didn't know when it would end. I was so lonely and so horny, and an old male friend revealed he had the hots for me. I was a little tempted (not to mention super flattered), but deep down I knew I could never do it.

So glad we live together again! Long distance is just too hard for me.

We aren't in the kind of relationship where it's an issue. Long ago we agreed that if either of us had the urge to bed someone else, we could accept it... as long as it was *just* sex and we told the other about it first (nothing like hearing about these things through the grapevine, right?). So far I haven't been attracted enough to anyone else to do it.

I suppose it would be something I would need to talk to my partner, but I've never really been tempted to cheat before and wouldn't anyway.

I haven't cheated in 28 years and don't want to start now. I've not had that urge but if I did, I would talk to him.

Sometimes there is just the novelty of it, so I just ignore it. But if I really wanted and needed something I would talk to my partner. Although then that is technically not cheating

I have this urge now.... And I really don't know what to do. I really like the guy I'm with, but I'm not getting enough from him.

I wouldn't cheat. I would have to talk with my partner on how I am feeling and try to work through those feelings. I was married for 10 years and my husband constantly cheated on me. It made me feel worthless. I decided the last year of my marriage I would do the same and it didn't justify anything and made me feel even worse.. So communication is key...
