Hes dating someone else
We hung out with her almost every day and she was a central part of our lives.Things started getting shady when I would call D, only to have him tell me he’d call me back because he was on the phone with Tina.I spent most of my time feeling jealous and scared that he was physically cheating.I thought it was wrong of him to develop these friendships, but he said he wasn’t doing anything wrong and I guess I wanted to believe it.Our relationship didn’t end until D met a girl named Tina when we were in college.Just like the situation with Jenn, Tina became my BFF too.But I do know that emotional cheating was bad enough to make me end an almost five-year relationship.So, here’s a little story for all of you who aren’t convinced that emotional cheating stinks.
I told D everything, things I had never told anyone else and he did the same with me.He never seemed to think he was doing anything wrong (according to the Huff Po survey, people are less likely to consider emotional cheating cheating if they’re the ones doing it) and so he never apologized. A few months after we broke up, a friend asked me if he had ever cheated. Because he did cheat – he ignored me for these other girls who he made fall in love with him, all while keeping me around and making me feel like was the one who was acting the wrong way. Of course I support the idea that your partner can have other friends besides you during a relationship, but I don’t think your partner should be developing that sort of close connection with another girl while he’s dating you. But for a while, I truly thought that she would be the one to break us up.
This happened a few more times with different, random girls who would enter my boyfriend’s life, become his best friend, develop a crush on him and then suddenly disappear.We could easily talk on the phone for hours because we never ran out of anything to say.
