Much has been said and written about men and their inability to remain loyal, but let’s get one thing straight. Behind every lying, cheating husband or boyfriend out there is an old flame who probably broke his heart in the same manner. Infidelity, after all, is a two-way street.

We want to know who the guy is, so we could find him and ruin his life in return. We want to beat him up. Hack his Facebook account. Thrash his car. Sleep with his girlfriend and/or sister. But that’s just our egos talking, so we don’t actually push through on anything.
