I had been dating this girl for just over a year, and i had been best friends with her for 3 years. I always really liked her, and when we finally started going out i was so so happy.
Although, she was fairly promiscuous before we started actually dating. And she told me everything that happened (because we were best friends). That was confronting, and it hit me hard once we started going out because i did get anxious and self-conscious about it at the time, because i knew it all in such detail, and she enjoyed it so much.
There was this one particular guy though. She had been 'friends with benefits' for a while with him. Once we started going out, she told this guy they wouldn't be seeing each other anymore. He wasn't happy. He kept talking to her all throughout the relationship, constantly asking for sex, and i hated it. I hated it more than anything. It made me sick. She promised me nothing would ever happen with him, and she did make me trust her.
Apart from that, i loved our relationship. It was so amazing. She was the only girl i could be myself around. I loved cuddling with her, acting all weird, and being able to love her more than anything. She meant the world to me. She was so damn beautiful. To me, she was absolutely perfect.
About 7 months into our relationship however, she suddenly started talking about open relationships. Not that we should be in one, but that she thinks she could do it in the future---have meaningful sex with her partner, and meaningless sex with other guys.
I hated that. I hate the thought of someone i care so much about sleeping with someone else. Doing something that to me is special because only i can do it to her. And she was all for that. She respected my opinion. I was 100% monogamous, and she was i suppose a bit iffy.
A week later, she's on her facebook and i see a message on her facebook from this guy, which is very very very dodgy. I couldn't help but open it, and it was my worst nightmare. The day before, she had sex with this guy who had been asking for it the whole time.
It was heartbreaking. I was so badly hurt. I felt like i should end it, but i couldn't. I loved her too much. I decided to try to go on. She hated herself for it, and wanted to do everything to make it up to me.
After that, she did nothing that upset me like that at all, but i was still hurt, and my trust was heavily damaged. I was in emotional pain throughout the rest of our relationship for the next 7 months.
Towards the end, i was scared of talking about it with her, because she felt bad that i was always so down because of her. Whenever i was upset though, she could see it in me, but then got angry, because i was scared of telling her why i really was angry. So in the end, she was upset because i was upset.
I hardly ever saw her, and things went really stale. This really upset me. It stressed me out a lot, because i still loved this girl more than anything in the world, but i knew in my head i had to break it off so i did.
It was so hard. And i have gone through every emotion ever since. (I'm writing this about 3 weeks after breaking up.) I am so sensitive whenever i speak to her, which isn't very often now. I feel like she is trying to make me feel bad, by talking about all that is great in her life. How her social life is booming and she's got new amazing friends and whatnot, while i'm here, with no one, because she was my best and only real friend.
I don't know if i'm over-thinking it, but i wonder if she is being rude and saying all that stuff to make me jealous. But at the same time, i really miss it. I miss how we used to be, when we were so happy together and everything felt amazing. I miss having her as a friend, having someone to talk to. I miss it so much, but i am scared of ever getting into another relationship with anyone, because i'm scared i might because cheated on or lied to again.
So yeah. That's my rant. Any thoughts would be really appreciated. I wish the best in all of your futures :)
