No one saw this coming.

Cheating is sadly very common in relationships, and often the main cause for the end of many relationships. Usually, when we hear about a situation like this we tend to think that the person has cheated with someone of the opposite gender. However, this is not always the case.

There are straight people who have cheated on their partners with someone of the same-sex. Whether their partner is really straight and just looking to experiment or struggling with their sexual identity, it is still a painful experience for any relationship.
