Once they cheat, believe me they will always cheat, they don't know the real meaning of true love & devotion. If it bothered him in the least he wouldn't be going back after getting caught. Sounds like to me he is very controlling & has you right where he wants you. You can do so much better & find true happiness, but you need to get out of that situation. He also probably likes the fact that you have a good paying job & may not want to let you go, be careful. Plan your departure carefully & enlist some of your friends for help & advice. Take your time & plan out your move.Don't let him know your new address, especially if he drinks. Then just look toward the day you will be out of there. I wish you the very best, it will take some time to get your head straight again, sounds like you have been beaten down & your self esteem needs up lifting. But you will do fine, find a support group to help with that. You didn't mention any Children, so that is easier, you have to find a place to live, pay deposits, & decide what is yours & then pick the day to move with help when he is with her, that should give you 2 days right. Just be careful & plan every thing out, then most of all, don't get into another relationship right off the bat. Take some time to figure out who you are & where you are in life. Get involved in your Church, if you don't have one, fine one & let God help & guide you though this, he will all you need to do is ask him. I wish you the very best & will pray for you too, please keep us posted on how well you are doing. God Bless you, Grandma of 8View Thread
I went to my community profile and it would let me edit my picture and signature but would not let me change my story. I had just realized that I put 1 1/2 instead of 11 1/2. Someone pointed it out to me in discussion and on facebook..View Thread
guy time: never try to steer a man away from his boys....it wont work...a guy needs his boys just as much as you need your girls....but what women dont seem to understand is guys dont sit there and vent and talk about "she did this and then i yelled that.." heck no....they play video games, have a beer (or 1 or 2...) and try to forget about whatever it was that got him so mad....
tell them how you feel...guys are not mind readers...if they ask you what you want to do tell them exactly what you want (in and out of bed)....
guys hate shopping with females....i understand why too...to us we have to look in every store to make sure we dont buy something we could have gotten something better somewhere else...they like to get in and get outView Thread
