I two-timed a Cancer man with a Leo and it backfired. Help!

I two-timed a Cancer man with a Leo and it backfired. Help!

I am a Capricorn woman, and I started a relationship in January with a Leo man. I fell for him, but after a while I lost interest and cheated on him with another guy (a Cancerian) who I adore. While I was with him, one of my ex-best friends told him a whole bunch of lies about me. I tried to defend myself but ended up looking really pathetic in front of him.

A few days later, my Cancer man caught me cheating with the Leo man via Facebook and he ended things. A day after, I was desperate and broke up with the Leo (which I’d wanted to do ever since I met Cancer). Now I really want Cancer back, but am not sure how to go about it. I’m divorced and after my divorce I’ve lost a lot of friends due to a lot of bad rumours about why my marriage ended, etc. I don’t know what to do. The Zodiac Lover

Personally, I think you’ve done your dash with both guys. Have some sensitivity, realise you’ve caused some hurt to both of these guys and walk away. There’s no shame in embracing some solo time until you get back on an even keel. And when you are, make better choices when you date. Don’t toy with people’s feelings. Don’t two-time people who think they’re the only one in your life. Don’t cheat. You can – and should – be a better person than that.

Love, reality chick

    Um… Stop cheating so much, and consider thinking about people other than yourself
