    I can't tell the differences between them

    1.I cheated you
    I cheated on you


    2. obviously and apparently

    3. leave out and miss out


    4. possibly and probably


    I'd just like to know the exact differences , so people who I'm talking to can understand exactly what I'm talking about.

    I appeciate it.

    1.I cheated you - I lied to you or deceived you
    I cheated on you - I was sexually unfaithful

    obviously- clearly
    apparently - from what others say, etc, but not necessarily a fact

    possibly- it could happen
    probably- more chance

    Does that help?

    I didn't know that cheat on sb has this sexual connotation,I've always used it without paying attention to this. I hope the people I talked to didn't take that meaning. :wink:

    ByE!

    Which is worse- to cheat or to cheat on? If you have said this to people you aren't in such a relationship with, I'd imagine they'd understand your real meaning.
