Worst Feeling Ever...Back many moons ago while still in college, I was in a 5 1/2 year long relationship with a woman who upon first meeting, had a 10 month old little girl named Madeleine. After six months of dating, she finally told me that she had a daughter as I was always wondering why we were always at my place instead of hers.
Fast forward 5 years - we had an issue in our relationship while living together. In August, she decided to move back "home" which was about 8 hours away - which at the time was just fine with me. Over the next few months, we still continued to talk - albeit by phone and email. She decided one day that she wanted to tell me how stupid she had been for leaving (blah blah blah) period and leaving me high and dry to fend for the high rent that I was forced to come up with every month as a college brat. Suffice to say, I entertained her notion of getting back together and we decided that it would be a good thing considering our history and at the end of the day, we were both happy with each other. So in December, she came for a visit and we had a few awesome days together. We decided that she would move back at the end of March. So for Spring Break, I decided I was going to go visit her - but prior to going, I knew she was at work and I accidentally called her home phone instead of her work phone.
Some guy answered......which I thought was quite strange.
I proceeded to tell him I'm an "old friend" of hers, etc etc etc so I asked how they knew each other. He told me that they had been dating for the last few months and were still together. I graciously thanked him for sharing all this info with me. I immediately called her and acted like nothing had happened and quizzed her in a round-about sort of way about her life. Finally I came out and told her what I knew (I'm sure I trashed her a bit, but I don't really recall) - and thanked her for her time. That was the last time I ever spoke with her even though she telephoned me countless times afterwards, but ultimately got the message.
Fast forward to 2010 - I still send her daughter bday and xmas gifts during the holiday season as I loved that kid like my own blood. I have no idea if the cards and gifts actually get to her because I have never once left a return address on any of the packages.
So...that is my story about heartbreak and how people can throw away history in the bl
Thanks for reading.
