High School Sweethearts

Two weeks ago I walked out of Kay Jewelers with an engagement ring and high hopes. 5 Years together and I was ready to take the next step. With a large diamond ring in hand I called my best friend to share the news. I recently asked permission from her father to ask her hand in marriage and he said yes. I was so excited. I called my best friend and told him of my purchase and of my plan. With an awkward silence on the other end of the phone my friend started to cry. It was at this point where I knew something was terribly wrong. He shared with me that my high school sweetheart and girl of my dreams who I also currently lived with, had made a mistake. He informed me that she lied to me about staying at a friends one night, stayed in a hotel and was intimate with another man. My heart had dropped. After confronting her of the incident she was quick to admit the mistake. I fell to my knees, crying for help, and laid the ring in her lap. I left... to this day I have filed a restraining order against her because she has been in denial and would like to start over...I will never accept that kind of behavior, people make mistakes, but I stand behind the idea that once a cheater, always a cheater. I looked to this site because I would love to find my special someone. Things are looking up in my life now and I would like to find my best friend. I am not ready for a relationship yet but I would like to meet new people. I look at myself as a very religious and genuine guy. Obviously my ex had some issues with me but I still was a good person and did the right things. Even after five years I still did the things I did when we were in high school, flowers, candlelight dinners, massages, etc. I am a decent looking guy and I am in athletic shape. I have dark brown hair and brown eyes. I am a good country boy and I want to find a true genuine girl who can love me for me, and not who they want me to be. Thanks for your time.

Yikes! Ouch. Thats stinks. Sorry to hear that.<br><br />
I just recently had my heart broken so I know the feeling of "not ready for a relationship but want to meet new people."<br><br />
How long does it take to heal this kind of pain? I had so much trust and love in this guy (we weren't dating but were in close friendship & both had strong feelings for each other) that when a new girl came in town, I was not jealous but encourage him to befriend her since she was a troubled girl and needed a supportive friend. Later did I know it led to other things behind my back...<br><br />

I suggest joining some more experience groups to meet people of similar interests etc.<br><br />

Good luck in your search and don't give up!
