    Am I The Only One?

    Many times I find myself asking this question. Especially here recently.. I'm not sure why I joined this website or why I'm writing this. Maybe because its easier to share my feeling with a group of stangers?becauseI'm not sure who can even view this. I just feel like I've held...

    Just A Question

    If you know that he is going to cheat, shouldn't you plan to cheat too? You knew he was going to, you stayed with him anyway, so shouldn't you be allowed to have some on the side as well? Just asking.

    I'm 22 years old about to be 23 soon.

    And I've been with this guys for almost 7 years in March. But I found out last year around June that he was cheating on me with a girl he used to work with for almost 2 years. I was devastated. I was beyond devastated. I found out by someone random texting me who worked with him...

    I am in a relationship in

    which my bf cheated on me. it is difficult for me because his cheating this time is physical and emotional. I still want him and love him very much because I see a home in him. When I take a time off with him, I can't seem to function. Maybe I love him more than I love myself...

    I Keep Thinking He'Ll Learn

    Oh he's learning alright. Learning exactly how to not get caught again. It all started when I was 8 months pregnant with our first child. A thank you for your flower purchase came in the mail. I didn't get any flowers so I called him to find out what was going on. He didn't...

    Just One Time?

    In retrospect it seems stupid. It's the one thing I swore I'd never do. I tolerated cheating. The first time was when he kissed her in my room during my party. Thrice they made out during my party. I knew, yet I kept quite. When he confessed and swore to never do it again, I...

    I Finally Left!

    Because I was in love, and naive, and he was one hell of a smooth talker.  He could sell a pair of 500 dollar shoes to a person with legs.  Do I have regrets, yes and no.  I loved him, and I learned a lot about myself and the world by being with him; but that was hell on...

    Reason Enough

    I expected him to cheat. In fact, when he asked me to marry him, I assumed he meant a marriage in name only.  After all, he was gay.  And not that closeted, repressed, nobody knows kind of gay.  No, he was out, proud, and had already confronted everyone who might have a...

    Just Like a Salesman

      He was the "good times" guy. He was fun. He was kinda dumb. But he had some panache that my previous aerospace engineer boyfriend had lacked. He was good at grand gestures...New York for the weekend, ten dozen roses for my birthday. But on the card? He spelled...
