My boyfriend of 3 years, whom I was living with, cheated on me with a woman who is 27 years older than me. It all started with him placing passwords on all devices and ignoring my calls for hours at a time. Over the course of 3 or 4 months I discovered he had multiple accounts on “dating” sites looking for intimate encounters. He said these women were miles away and he admitted to having an addiction to “the chase” and swore he had never had any physical contact with any woman other than me. || July 2011 we were lying in bed and his phone kept going off. I got up to check his phone and saw a text message that read “I love and miss you. I’m living for my next moment with you baby”. Of course I woke up him yelling and he swore they had been flirting for years but nothing happened. I begged and pleaded for him to end all contact with her and he agreed. Little did I know, he only changed her name in his contacts and quickly deleted everything after they talked. My trust was almost gone but after investing 3 years of my life and falling in love with his little boy, I didn’t want to throw it all away. || Fast forward 7 months and my best friend passes away unexpectedly. I’m devastated but he can’t attend the funeral because “he can’t get off work”. The service was shorter than expected so I got home about an hour early to find her car in the driveway. I storm through the back door and find them in the middle of having sex on the couch I paid for! I finally had gotten to the point of no return and immediately started packing my things. || This killed all self-confidence and self-worth that I had for myself. I’m not the skinniest woman and I don’t have the prettiest face but I loved this man and his child more than words could ever describe. The worst part is she is married with two daughters and as they grow older they are beginning to act just like their mother. I told her husband what had happened and he said he didn’t care because he was doing the same. Karma is a bitch.
