How do you leave a cheating boyfriend if you still love him?

Love hurts and there is no two ways about it. However, each of us should be more independent, expect the best from a boyfriend or husband if we give our best to them and if they don't comply then kick 'em to the curb. My first husband cheated on me before we got married, but I was in denial and married him anyway. The worst mistake I ever made in my life. In 3 1/2 years I divorced him. He never changed! My heart was broken and I blamed myself because he was cheating, but after being away from him for a few months I realized I had nothing to do with why he was cheating and it was a kink in his own character. I never once regretted leaving him and moved on. I lived on my own (a little frightening and lonely) and slowly started to get into the dating ciruit, but took it slow and easy. I began to realize just how strong and independent I was now that I had given myself a chance to get to know me. I eventually married a wonderful man 4 years younger than myself and we have been happily married for 34 years. Start being independent and realize you don't need a man in your life to get through life and once you learn that then your next relationship will be much more successful. Kick this guy to the curb and move on. If you hang on he'll only hurt you more and take up a lot of your energy and precious life.
