Well, this is it. We broke up. I found out through Facebook (of all places) that my man has been cheating on me and that it's been going on for some time now. I hadn't heard from him for days, not even Valentine's Day (even though he had the day off) and then I see lovey-dovey comments from him to some other girl. I have been completely invested in our relationship from day one and now this. I know that it's difficult being in the Navy and being apart from each other, but it doesn't excuse his actions.
It's weird to me... I haven't cried, not yet anyway. Maybe that's because of all the tears I'd already cried and now I have nothing left. What's bad is that I can't back out of the trip to Chicago to see him next month; the ticket and the hotel room are already paid for. He still wants to see me. And I'm not sure how I feel about that. But I'm going to go and enjoy myself. I'd been planning on going there to check out colleges and some theatres that I hope to work for.
Thanks everyone for your support and comfort through this emotional journey. I know I have grown through this experience and I'm better for it. You are all amazingly strong and I'm glad to have gotten to know you all. I wish you all the best.
With all my love
