Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 102 People

    When I confirmed my now ex-wife had been

    cheating on me (with multiple men) I wasn't angry or jealous about that. I was angry about all the other betrayals she committed and lies she told trying to cover it up. I'm still trying to grasp what this means for me. I know I get feel emotion for people I have sex with...

    Really, I'm Not

    I'm very laid-back and accepting of rejection. lolThe way I see it is if my partner wants someone else, there really isn't much I can do to change that. If she/he wants to be with someone else, so be it.

    My girlfriend saids she wants me to act jealous.

    I laughed at her then told her why should I act jealous if another guy find you attractive. I trust you that you will always respect our relationship so there is no need for me to act jealous.

    then loved all kinds of other ladies (and probably still does, in both cases). We are happy together, but if we are ever separated he will love again. Loving all these other people doesn't take away from what he can give me, it adds even more good relationships to a world that...
