What Best Friend?

Hey, this isn't easy to write. not really sure how to put it into words.

I'm only 21 so allot of people probably think I'm being over dramatic.

i met my ex at the start my my 3 year uni course. things were going great till near the end of the course when we new we would have to separate for a while until we could afford a place of our own. So i planned to propose, let her know I'm serious about us you know.... plans changed when i had to pay some unforeseen bills, without the money for a ring i couldn't ask!!

a few months later I moved in with her and her parents. they were welcoming and friendly. couldn't of been more happy. don't get me wrong we had our rough patches but things was only getting better between us....

that's when we decided to go for a night out with some old uni friends...i don't know when but during that time...my girlfriend(of 4 years at this point) and my best friend (who I've known for 7 years) decided to sleep together...

she said she thought its what she wanted....now she knows it was a mistake.he said sorry. never planned it, was a mistake...i tried to make it work with her for a month or 2 after that but it didn't last....now I'm left trying to pick up the pieces of my life without the woman i thought i would spend the rest of my life with or my best friend...i cant even see him encase i do something i regret.

I've only told one person about this and she thinks i should forgive my friend and forget about my ex....she actually said "girls come and go but friends are forever". but if that's the case surely hes just as bad as her...

 

so that's my story...

Well the ex<x>pression should go friends are forever significant others come and go. Its hard to forget but not as hard to forgive, in your case you can forgive them both but decide if you continue any contact between the two. Its hard losing someone you love and wondering what to do after been there myself although I don't believe cheating was involved (three is however alot of circumstantial stuff but anyway) I am sorry to hear about that I hope now you are moving on and finding life much more happier and exciting!
