  • bad person is a bit harsh! bad partner for sure. it also shows a great deal of selfishness, lack of respect and a weakness of mind, but it doesnt make them a bad person.
  • Only if you are one of those people who likes to sort people into one of two categories, because it is so convenient. Otherwise a cheater is just a cheater. The real question is why do you have to know if they are good or bad? It's pretty meaningless unless you are going to make some sort of binary decision.
  • There is no good or bad, right and wrong. There is always a reason behind everything. And one should figure out the reason behind it and try to understand.
  • Yes, cheaters are "bad people". Yes, I think that cheaters are "bad people". I urge others to avoid them, as they can seldom be a positive influence in anyone's life. You are wise in thinking that someone with "flexible ethics" and "dynamic morality" is a person to be generally avoided. You can still be civil to these wayward souls, just don't allow them to ensnare you in their webs of deceit.
  • One man's cheating is another's attempt to improve the odds.
  • According to this site .."approximately 50 percent married women and 60 percent of married men will have an extramarital affair at some time in their marriage." http://www.catalogs.com/info/relationships/percentage-of-married-couples-who-cheat-on-each-ot.html a lot of bad people out there ;)
  • it's all subjective I suppose..what is good and what is bad? Surely I think almost everyone can agree cheating is bad but so is a million other things. So in essence we are all guilty of doing something bad sometime or another in our lives...does that make everyone a bad person? I don't think so, it just makes us people..and people often do bad, stupid and even sometimes good things. Some people just do them more than others. But there are many people in this world that have done some bad things and some really good things too...does one bad act define a person as bad? How many bad acts define a person as bad...is there a scale to grade on as to what is worse than another bad act? No, there isn't...so in my opinion, people are just people and we ALL do good, bad and stupid things. But that also doesn't mean they should necessarily be forgiven or get off scot free. Everything comes with repercussions and a price to pay.
  • I don't think cheaters are good people. I think that they treat others unfairly and that to me makes them look selfish and uncaring.
  • No. It doesn't mean they are a bad person. It means they are a human being - infallible - and they made a huge mistake. Some learn from the bad feeling they get, and don't repeat. Others make a habit of it. But even that person can be good on so many other dimensions.....just not a good spouse, perhaps.
  • They may have done a bad thing, but maybe they were confused, scared, insecure, lost, numb, any umber of things. Or they could be a bad person who doesn't care about others. You can't just paint them all with a broad brush.
  • Some were good people... at least once, but then they were cheated on... and they did not know the best way to get over it, and they chose to revenge. If one has ever been in certain situation ... and she/he is not that strong they'll become one. That's why there are so many cheater out there,.... amateur, serial and people who seek for revenge.
  • Look at the person first! Action comes from variety of things: childhood, past experience, envinronment... think about it!
  • I'd say not necessarily. I'd also say that not cheating doesn't automatically make someone a good person. I will agree that cheating is a bad thing to do, and that not cheating is good, but you also have to consider that "cheating" covers a wide range of behaviors - from a one-off drunk and hardly knew what she was doing, to a whole second relationship on the side. I'd say that sometimes good people make mistakes, and some really monumentally nasty people don't cheat. Look at each case in detail before making the call.
  • Wow you are harsh! I don''t think if a person cheats on one s/o in the history of all thier s/o makes them a bad person, it meens they had a moment of extreme weakness. as for a repeat offender thy may be a bad person, but that doesn't make them one, they may be a weak person, most people who cheat don't do so in malice, they don't cheat to hurt thier s/o they cheat because they are weak, they suffer from sexual addiction or fear of comitment or any one of many problems. Does it make them flawed? yes Does it make them unworthithy of a realtionship? sure untill they can clean up thier act.but a bad person? no not unless they do it just to hurt thier s/o frankly if I where to say any one was a bad person I would say its you for your bigotry tword any one who has ever cheated. people who cheat usualy get hurt and bad by loosing some one they care about alot...I think that is punishment enough with out you casting judgement on them.
  • No,usually it is because they are not getting the love they need at home. But they should break up first.
  • People cheat for many reasons but none are good. Most of the time they just can't control themselves, just as a person quitting smoke and having that uncontrollable urge to have another cigarette. In the end it is not about good or bad chacter but about strong or weak will power to overcome temptations that is lurking in every corners and taking on any forms.
  • Not necessarily. Someone who cheats is someone who made a bad decision and we are all capable of that. You may not trust them again , you maybe hurt by them and you may want them out of your life, but it does not necessarily make them a bad person.
  • I think people make mistakes... if it's a one time incident and they realize they never want to do it again, then I think they're still a good person and probably ought to be forgiven. If they just show disregard for their partner and/or keep cheating, then no, I don't believe they're a good person.
  • Yes it makes them a bad person if they dont repent their sins. Cheating is lying and that is against God. Also it is in the ten commandments not to cheat. If they repent then salvtaion can still be for them, but only if they ask forgivness. They seek love in God and Jesus and He will make their home life better.
  • Too me cheaters are bad. They have a choice to do the right thing and they obviously don't want to make it easy or simple like breaking it off, they are selfish and don't give a damn about other peoples feelings
  • no it doesnt mean they are bad people. It just means that they made some bad decisions and judgement calls. That is their business and I dont like to judge anyone.
  • I don't think it makes them a bad person..rememer..to err is human..may make them a bad boyfriend/girlfriend..but not a bad person
  • good people can make mistakes if they repeatedly cheated or cheated and felt no remorse then this is not the quailties as a good person
  • No, if someone cheats means he's not satisfied with his partner.
  • If a person cheated, he or she made a bad decision.
  • Depends. People who are very young tend not to be long term faithful Once you have matured, however, you should know what a cheesy thing cheating is. The worst thing is the lack of respect you show for your partner.
  • Good people make bad decisions all the time. Just because someone faltered, even if they were unfaithful does not mean they are a bad person for life.
  • you are the decisions you make. you make bad decisions you are bad. you make good decisions you are good. anyone who violates a commitment with another person is bad... there are no more commitments of trust than sexual commitments. as for the topic... unless someone drugged you against your knowledge then you are responsible for your drunken actions because you chose to get drunk
  • Sometimes the worst of things can happen to the best of people......
  • I don't think it's ever as black and white as that.
