So why is it we only hear about how Tiger Woods, Jesse James, Bill Clinton and the like couldn’t stay true? What about all the ladies, famous or not, who are out there prowling for some of the strange?
Men get cheated on, too. To prove it, we talked to four regular guys who’ve felt the sickening smart of infidelity. They let us in on what they were able to learn from the unfortunate experience. Read more … Keep reading »
