Why Could This Happen?

I have loved my girlfriend for the past 4 years. We never had a cross word and were always able to talk about our feelings. We had plans to be married after we finished college. I could always be myself around her and came to love all of the intricacies only I could see, the things she was too embarrassed to show others.

This week she called me crying and said she had just cheated on me the night previous and that she wanted to break up. She knew this other guy for only 5 days... 

This is killing me because she wont talk to me about it. I am still very much in love with her even though I don't want to be. She was my best friend, the one I told everything to and the only one who really understood me. Now I've lost her as my love and as my friend. I have no one to talk to who knows me, who knows us, that can understand. 

Why do people hurt the ones they claim to have loved for so long?

i dont know why she did that. there are a lot of reasons people cheat. is she really done? with you? maybe she wants you to try and get her back but does not want to ask becasue of what she did. idk. but you have to love yourself too. be strong man. try and stay busy. spend time with other people you love; friends or family. focus on other parts of your life that you enjoy; hobbies or career or whatever. and keep your head up. hurt when you must, but do something and keep busy. sorry you are hurting. i do know how you feel.
