I am so sorry you had to deal with this.  I know the last thing you want to hear is someone else telling you it was a good thing so I will shut up on that front.

F him!  Go do something selfishly for yourself.  Extra points if it’s something he disliked or forbid you from doing.  Go out and have fun and do it for you.  Stop dwelling on this loser and what he did to you.  Don’t let a cancelled wedding define you.  Go out and explore and define yourself.  I became a completely different person after my divorce and I truly prefer living for myself and it was that confidence that attracted my current FH.

Take some time for you and go out with your girlfriends or start a new hobby. When you least expect it, the person who deserves you will show up.

@kariface:  I’m so sorry (hugs). How hurt you must feel. Keep this in mind: best you found out his feelings before getting married, rather than going through with the wedding under false pretenses. Divorce is more difficult than calling off a wedding. Best of luck to you. I wish you the strength to move on.

wow, very sorry to hear this…..


Take care of yourself, book a nice vacation!

Thank you for the tips, I do not want a wedding if I ever get married, vows before the justice of the peace and a small pig roast b-b-q is just find by me. I have a hard enough time just planning dinner for two….lol


Good luck, I can’t imagine what you must feel.


The fact that he is seeing someone so soon is weird.

I was reading an article on cheating, they claim cheating has become very rampant for new married couples as the men tend to feel regret and they want to try things out before kids get involved ect.


So yes, he did her a favor although I think he should have been more upfront before agreeing to get married.

@kariface:  I’m so sorry to hear about this, but after you deal with the emotions of it all, you will be better for it! He’s going to see this again. You can’t do these things to people and expect your life to be smooth sailing…doesn’t happen like this. Hearing, “You dodged a bullet” can be pretty annoying, but would you want a man who thinks it’s easy to just walk away? I know it hurts…allow yourself to feel the pain and miss him when need be…but then pick yourself up and show the world the wonderful person you are. You will find a new man and a new best friend who is WORTHY of your love and lifetime commitment.

Best of luck to you.

I’m sorry to hear this.  Though there is a silver lining this happened before the wedding vs. after.  Big hugs.
