5 Unexpected Perks Of Being Cheated On

You were a blessing in disguise.

No, getting cheated on is not fun. It leaves you questioning every detail of your relationship: where it went wrong, why they cheated, and how many times it's happened.

While it's arguably one of the worst ways to end a relationship, it's also one of the best blessings you've ever received, and here are 5 reasons why:

1. The whole bed is yours

Why pick a side when the entire bed is now yours? Sleep diagonally or upside down, with the covers on one leg instead of both, or toss and turn as dramatically as you please. It doesn't matter because you no longer need to be considerate of anyone else's sleeping habits!

2. You save a hell of a lot of time

Be grateful that you found out about their cheating when you did because imagine how much more of your life you could've wasted with this a**hole.

3. Similarly, you have more money

Okay so there's no guarantee on this one, but it's still a possibility. One less movie ticket equals more popcorn and candy for you, am I right?

4. The inevitable “How have you been?" text

Like a yo-yo, they come right back pretending that nothing ever happened and casually ask you what you've been up to since the incident. There are two benefits to receiving this text: 1) you know you have the upper hand; and 2) they finally realize they f*cked up.

5. Knowing that you're thriving without them

The best thing about relationships that end badly is succeeding without them. In time, you'll find someone who thinks the world of you. But until then, remember that dead weight makes it harder to fly.

G-Eazy and Halsey went public with their swoon-worthy relationship on Instagram in September 2017. The couple recently broke up after several months of being on again, off again. But that didn't stop them from having the cutest displays of public affection all over their Instagrams during their courtship.

Here are the 12 cutest Instagrams of G-Eazy ad Halsey that make it all that much harder to let go of their relationship:

1. When they went to the AMA's and looked like the hottest couple at prom

2. When they spent a normal day by the pool just Mom, Dad & Pup 

3. When they took a casual ride down the gondola in Venezia, Italy

4. When they were too smitten for us to handle

6. When they had an impromptu photoshoot in a convenient store that could be on the cover of Vogue

7. When the show STOPPED as they graced the MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet

8. When G posted a picture of his Mom and Halsey for International Women's Day (and I shed real tears)

9. When they showed us what pure bliss looks like (and he quoted their song for his caption)

10. When they kissed ON STAGE during a performance together and confirmed that they are the OTP

11. When G posted a candid picture of them kissing in the snow

Halsey and G-Eazy are the modern Romeo and Juliet as far as I'm concerned. They serve up a heavy dose of love on all of their social media accounts and prove to us time and time again that real love is out there and they're not afraid to show theirs off.

I Watched The Boys I Hooked Up With Fall In Love With Other Girls And Wondered Why They Couldn't Love Me

Maybe I cared too much or I'm just not pretty enough. I guess I'll never know.

When I was 20, I stopped going on dates because my first relationship was so toxic, it broke me. To save myself from future disappointment and minimize the chances of getting attached to any one person, I joined hookup culture.

For two years, I watched my friends with benefits fall in love with other girls. And I wondered why none of them ever loved me.

When I chose this lifestyle, I wasn't seeking a relationship—clearly. I wasn't completely closed off to the idea, despite my lingering heartache, but it wasn't something I initially desired. That also meant I didn't anticipate any of my FWBs wanting relationships either, much less falling in love. (Since when do f*ckboys try to tie themselves down?) Regardless, I envied the girls who singlehandedly convinced each of them to abandon a lifestyle they previously so desired, while wondering what it was about me that couldn't entice them to do the same.

To be quite honest, all of these relationships exceeded my expectations in their beginnings. Over time, I watched these boys truly love and fall in love with their girls. But alas, nothing is perfect and everyone is toxic in their own way. These relationships, like so many others, had their highs and almost equally as many lows, which only continued to make me wonder what about these girls was so worth the emotional scarring. It broke my heart that they found respite in someone and something so lackluster.

Unfortunately, I understood. I still do. We're hosts to an undying vice that acknowledges the necessity of escape, but simultaneously convinces us there isn't the possibility of one. I understood this so deeply, and the familiarity of their situations only wrung my heart.

Despite caring for a couple of these boys more than I cared for the others, I was never in love with any of them. Perhaps that's one of the reasons they couldn't love me. Regardless, it means my intent was never to replace any of the girls. It was simply to understand what it was about them and their somewhat f*cked up relationships that outshone me. Curiosity really did kill the cat.

Don't be mistaken—I have loved, and I've also been loved before. So it's not that I think I'm unworthy. But as I continued to learn more about these far-from-perfect relationships, I wanted answers. I was, and sometimes still am, suspended in turmoil, harboring a genuine curiosity for where these boys found fault in me and why they couldn't look past those flaws.

Today's nature would lead me to believe I just wasn't pretty enough for them. Or maybe I tried too hard or cared too much. Whatever the case, it doesn't matter because in some way, shape, or form, I just wasn't enough for any of those boys. And that's fine. Truly. You can't win 'em all, but after all the time we invested in each other, I just wanted to know why I wasn't any of their first choices.

Despite it all, whether or not their relationships at the time are still currently active, I'm at ease knowing they are capable of love. It's silly, but considering their undying habits, it's true. And I hope that one day, they find girls who will encourage them to leave those habits behind for good.

I never needed any of my friends with benefits to love me. I simply wanted to know why, after everything we'd been through, they didn't.
