Hello everyone, I’ve been a long time lurker of this page and my current situation has brought me here in hopes of getting advice since my situation took a turn for the worst and has currently left me devastated. I was with my boyfriend for 7 years and since last year we had been talking of getting married. Without getting into too much detail, earlier this year we had talked seriously about getting married but he had been dragging his feet and i thought it was due to him getting too comfortable in the relationship. I got tired of waiting and had an honest conversation with him about the future and told him that if he didnt want to marry me, let’s not waste each others time and move on. He thought things over for a while and decided to end things as he needed more time. Come to find out, once we had the conversation, he went looking for another girlfriend and didnt breakup with me until he had her lined up. And if that wasn’t even the most devastating of all, i also found out he had been cheating on me the entire past year with multiple people while I had been working like crazy saving up money to find a house for us to live in.
I know he’s not a good person and I’m lucky to have seen this before we went any further, but to know that he was an entirely different person in our relationship has devastated me. He easily replaced me with someone else and moved on. So I just need somebody to give me the encouragement to keep going and that it’s better that he’s gone. I keep thinking that he is happy and a better man with this new person. Please help.
