Thinking of cheating or ending 6 year relationship...

Will try to keep it short. Living with my boyfriend for over 6 years. However when we were casually dating, he was away for a week or so and I ended up sleeping with one of his friends. Again, we weren't serious so I never told him. When he came back, i saw the other guy a couple times more then ended it. It felt wrong and I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted to be with him rather than my now boyfriend. So after a year living with my BF, we drifted apart and he ended up breaking up with me after confessing he was seeing someone else. I moved out for a couple weeks and we ended up getting back together after that. He said that he never slept with her. I don't know whether that was true or not. So to today, I haven't seen like he has done that again but with all our financial problems, I am withdrawing from him. And this other guy recently broke up with his girlfriend and has made it clear to me that he is interested in me. He asks me for us to go hang out and texts me frequently. He is the opposite of my BF in that he is not afraid to tell me how he feels. My BF is not too good with feelings and serious talk. This other guy is also really well off with money.
I would like some honest opinions. I don't know what to do. Feel bad if I should break up with my BF but then again he didn't think twice about ending it with me for someone else. He said that he broke it off with her because he realized I was the one.
I am always thinking back to when I was seeing this other guy. I was really attracted to him and I almost chose him. But I felt horrible to break up with my BF.
What to do?
Find the man that does it for you completely, regardless of who and what he is and how much money he has.
It's obvious by your post that even after 6 years, your bf is not the right man for you.
You should base your decision on whether to cheat or leave solely on your heart. Just because your bf went elsewhere in the past, and hurt you in the process, doesnt give you the right to go to that level. But it should give you an idea of just how broken your relationship is.
Rather than cheat, end your relationship properly with your bf and get over your 6 years together before you move onto someone else.
Stop torturing yourself...be true to yourself instead.
