There is possibly nothing more soul-destroying than finding out someone you love is loving on another.
The first time I was cheated on, I was out at a club with my very first boyfriend. I noticed a beautiful girl across the room staring at him, then the band started playing, things got loud and suddenly my boyfriend was nowhere to be found. Oddly enough, she was gone too. Fifteen minutes later, I saw them skulk out of the bathroom together. Ouchie!
But not everyone has the luxury (?!) of catching their beliked in the act and many of us, while we suspect something's going on, don't feel comfortable putting the kibosh on a good relationship, just because of a twinge in the gut, so we look for something more.
Psychically-inclined Chloe had been seeing a gynecologist we'll call Dr. Dishonest for about five months when he asked her to read his tarot cards.
"As soon as I said, 'You are thinking about cheating with another woman and she's in Holland,' he started sweating and was like, 'How do you know that?'" she laughs. "Then I found out from his secretary that he had a trip planned to Holland that weekend." He's now married to the Dutch woman.

Bronze medalist Scott Lago apologized to U.S. officials and volunteered to leave the Olympic Games after racy pictures of him, his medal and a female fan showed up on the Internet, a spokesman for the U.S. ski and snowboard team confirmed Saturday.
Lago, from Seabrook, New Hampshire, finished third in Wednesday night's snowboard halfpipe event. It was his first trip to the Olympics.
On Friday morning, the gossip Web site TMZ.com published two pictures of Lago. In one, the unidentified fan is kissing the medal while it hangs just below the waistline of Lago's pants. In the second, she is biting down on the medal, which is around Lago's neck, as teammate Greg Bretz looks on. It is unclear when the photos were taken.
U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO Bill Marolt said Lago had apologized to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. snowboard federation, and left Canada.
"Scotty Lago is a great athlete, but with that comes a responsibility of proper conduct and his involvement in this situation is not acceptable," Marolt said in a written statement.
"Scotty realizes his conduct was inappropriate. He has formally apologized and also made a decision to leave Vancouver today."
He was not entered to compete in any remaining events. Lago could not be reached for comment Saturday.

Six-time former major champion Nick Faldo has said that "big" questions surrounding the future of Tiger Woods still remain despite the world number one apologizing for his "irresponsible and selfish behavior" in a public statement on Friday.
The apology from Woods - which was broadcast around the world from the headquarters of the PGA Tour in Florida - was the first public statement from the American golfer since the 34-year-old admitted to "transgressions" following a Thanksgiving car-crash.
However, Faldo said the comments had done little to answer key questions: "It was a pretty complete apology and very embarrassing for him, to take the world stage and to apologize for what he has been up to.
"However, he still left the big question that we as golfers all wanted to know and that's when he will come back to the course.
**NOTE** In addition to Sir Nick Faldo, we'll be talking with Dr. Drew Pinsky, Sportscaster Jim Gray and former NBA star John Salley – all on Tiger Woods' comments today! Tune in at 9pmet

It's hard to believe there are hundreds of reporters, dozens of cameras and television trucks waiting to get credentialed to get into a room where they can watch Tiger on television. Because only a select group of reporters were allowed to be in the room with Tiger, the rest of us get to watch it a mile away in a hotel conference room. In fact, there were even cameras shooting pictures of the television where Tiger was going to appear.
Why they didn't watch in their hotel rooms you ask? Probably for the same reason I tried to get a seat up front – as close to the television as possible. For the excitement of it all, to feel the energy in the room amongst all the media. It's mostly men as sports reporters tend to be male. Most cover golf, and probably covered Tiger for many years.
Though journalists are supposed to be unbiased, everyone had an opinion afterwards. But before voicing any opinions, they wanted to know what women thought of what tiger said. Becoming one of the few women here, a number of reporters (many from the Golf channel) came over to ask if now I forgave Tiger and if he would be pardoned by the public. Of course, as a journalist for CNN, I took the 5th.
Don't get me wrong, it's not JUST sports reporters here. It's an international story too, which is why German TV is here. Jason Kennedy of E!, and Kevin Frasier of Entertainment tonight are all here as well. Then there are those few people in the room who just snuck in for the free food. At least I got a seat up front – right near the big screen TV.

We once again have a Lambert on “American Idol.”
The remaining top 24 were revealed on Wednesday night and Alex Lambert (apparently no relation to Adam) made it through along with Lacey Brown, Crystal Bowersox, Janell Wheeler, Katie Stevens, Michelle Delamore, Siobhan Magnus, Lilly Scott, John Park, Joe Munoz, Ashley Rodriguez, Haeley Vaughn, Paige Miles, Tyler Grady, Jermaine Sellers, and Andrew Garcia.
And since “Idol” wouldn’t be “Idol” without some controversy, contestant Chris Golightly, who made it into the Top 24, was replaced at the last minute by contestant Tim Urban (who I’m going to go out on a limb here and say is not related to Keith). According to a press release from Fox, it was determined that Golightly was ineligible to continue in the competition.
Fellow Hollywood week contender Samantha Musa tweeted that she had spoken to Golightly – who touched hearts with his back story of being in foster care – about his disqualification.
“He was disqualified yesterday, after already being told he was in the top 24, over some bogus old contract,” Musa tweeted on Wednesday. “The contract expired, but they disqualified him for not telling them.”
Fox hasn’t given any details as to why Golightly was tossed, and Musa questioned why he was let go instead of “Big Mike” Lynche – whose father reportedly broke the “Idol” confidentiality agreement by blabbing about his making it into the Top 24 – was not.

Golfer Tiger Woods will break his silence Friday, more than 80 days after his infamous car crash that spiraled into a sex scandal.
Woods will apologize for his behavior at a news conference at 11 a.m. (ET) in front of a small hand-picked crowd that will not be allowed to ask questions, according to his agent Mark Steinberg.
The Golf Writers' Association has confirmed it will boycott the event even though the group was supposed to have three members there, said Jim Gray, a correspondent for the Golf Channel. The group was upset about the ban on reporters' questions, Gray added.
Despite the controlled atmosphere, Gray said many have been waiting to hear from Woods directly.
"I think it's good that he's finally having something to say instead of releasing another statement on his Web site," he said.
Former sportscaster Pat O'Brien criticized the way Woods seemed to be controlling the news conference.
He might as well have done this on YouTube," O'Brien said Thursday on CNN's Larry King Live. "But I do think that he's got to subject himself to some sort of question and answer at some point, otherwise people are just going to - it's already a disaster."
"If you listened to sports talk radio, he's just getting ripped to shreds," O'Brien added.
