A month or so ago I wrote a post about having some problems with Mr. Giraffe and not sure what was going to happen. Well it is now official. The wedding is off. He broke up with me last Wednesday and I guess that’s that. I just feel like a total and complete moron. Apparently, he had lied to me about a whole lot of things in his life from the beginning and I guess I never really knew the real him. I’m beyond devastated and am just trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces. He claims that he’s met somebody and that she understands him better than I could. I don’t know if he really has or is just using that because he knows that that will push me away forever. Either way. I’m simply heartbroken.
I wish you ladies all the best.

I’m so sorry. Please know that it’s better that you’ve found out now, rather than having to end a marriage later. I know that this doesn’t make your heart hurt less, and doesn’t make the practicalities of ending a relationship any less harsh. Sending hugs and positive thoughts for the days ahead.

Oh honey… I’m so sorry.
I know it doesn’t lessen the heartbreak you’re feeling now… but it’s better that it happened now than after the wedding.
I hope your heart mends soon and you have many happy days in your future.

@msgiraffe2013: I’m really sorry that you had the misfortune of getting so deeply involved eith somebody who couldn’t commit to you emotionally and felt the need to lie to you about things. I’m also sorry that he then found somebody else, and turned his problems with commitment around on you, claiming that this girl could ‘understand him better than you’. What an asshole. It doesn’t seem so now, but you’re lucky to be shot of him.
But stick around, why don’t you? I don’t know if you were planning to leave WB or not and if you are then we’ll miss you. But there are all sorts on here and WB isn’t the sort of place where they kick you out because you don’t have a ring. It’s just a community of women, all at different stages on their lives, coming together to help and support each other. So even if you’re out of the ‘smug marrieds in training club’ you could still be part of ‘the hive club’. I really hope you stay.

🙁 Lots of love and prayers headed your way. I’m glad you parted ways, after hearing about what happened.
I agree with Ruby-Redshoes, stick around the Bee 🙂

I really did plan on leaving and not coming back. It’s just so hard to see everybody so excited and happy planning their big days. which they have every right to. Maybe in time. I’m just so devastated right now. but thanks so much for all your support ladies!

I remember your original post and I’m so sorry things didn’t work out!
Take some time for yourself: spend time with your girlfriends, cry and bitch, get active, eat right…learn a new skill, or take that trip you always wanted to go on: whatever you want to do for YOU and you alone. Be as selfish as you want to be.
It takes time, but it will get better. Promise 🙂

I had a broken engagement. I’m really sorry. It’s by far one of the most heart breaking things that happened to me in my dating life.
But you will get over this. It will happen. I send you really good things.

@msgiraffe2013: ((((HUGS)))) I am so sorry you are going through this. Everyone always says (and it’s true) that in retrospect you will realized you dodged a bullet and you will end up in a better place, but I know that probably doesn’t help right now. Take care of yourself, be good to yourself.

@msgiraffe2013: How awful. I’m so sorry he manipulated and hurt you like that. It is better that you found out sooner rather than later, though… hugs to you!

@msgiraffe2013: I am so sorry. I know it sounds totally cliche to say that you are better off without him, but objectively speaking, you really are. I could never imagine marrying someone like that. While it will undoubtedly be so painful for you now, you will heal and meet someone who will treat you better. Big hugs!

@msgiraffe2013: This happened to me as well with my first engagement. Exact story. I am so sorry.
