I'm so sorry for the circumstances which brought you here, but you have found a great place for healing.

My exH also had an affair with my best friend, so I understand the level of pain you have been feeling. Double betrayal is a particularly painful thing.

It sounds like you are doing the right thing by being No Contact with the two of them. There is no reason for him to be contacting you, and nothing good could possibly come of it.

You will move on with dignity and find someone who truly deserves your love and devotion.

Best wishes to you.

Welcome to SI. I am so sorry for your pain. You know you deserve better than this, right?

Rather than waiting for him to throw your x-BFF out and asking you back, maybe you should look into getting yourself into individual counselling.

You need to find out why it has been ok for him to "cheat 4 times" and now cheat with your best friend. Why are you accepting of this poor treatment? And more horrifying? Why would you consider bringing a baby into this?

Good question i guess denial because it was too painfull

sadtoo posted 6/9/2013 14:11 PM

I get that. Denial is a powerful thing. I lived in that place for a long time too. do yourself a favor and find out why. And then get out of it.

You deserve a better life. You know this and you want it. You just think you're going to have it with him. And he is "showing" you who he is but for whatever reason, you can't see it.

You can't find the right one while you're with the wrong one.

I guess this was never love or any form of love...I wonder why I hate myself so much to see him dó this in front of my eyes, at work and at home..he is a pig and I want him back...the OW is not important because there were many before her...he never seemed to have regrets...but this time he cried and told me he is evil..

Oh sweetie. Could it be that he's crying because you aren't putting up with it this time? And not because he's come to his senses?

Don't take him back for a while, at least till you see some major, permanent changes.

Take care of yourself. And please, please do not get pregnant. Your baby deserves a father that loves his/her mother more than anything.

Hi honey welcome to SI. What you have gone through is heartbreaking and you deserve so much better.

I am so sorry that both your spouse and your friend could betray you like this. Such a terrible double blow.

Have you got yourself some counselling? Someone who can help you work through your own issues. No one deserves to be treated the way you have been by him and be so accepting of it.

You know when someone repeatedly shows you who they are by their actions you need to believe them. I know it is hard to believe when you are so hurt but you do deserve someone who will treat you with love and respect. He is not doing this.

This man has seriously concerning sexual behaviours - he may well be a sex addict.

You need to to start looking after you - both physically (get yourself tested for STDs) and emotionally (counselling and reading etc).

Keep posting so we can support you.

I think he has some kind of addiction to women and porn..he used to always sit and look at porn when I was at work, never did anything in the house...likes to drink as well...I am so lost, so empty,,I need to move on its been one year..he has gone no contact as well now...after telling me just in march he was leaving her

I know you are hurting and I am sorry.

It is time to move on. Do not allow yourself to be an option.

Please listen to your own words. He's cheated on you numerous times, he is addicted to porn, he drinks, he is cheating on your best friend.

YOU CAN NOT FIX HIM. He is messed up. He needs to figure himself out, get into counseling and grow up.

If you would reunite with this man you will be setting yourself up for more heartache and despair. And WHY would having a baby with this man be a good idea? That would be so unfair to the child to have this man as a father.

Go NC and don't look back.

Please consider IC for yourself. You need to figure out what healthy means to you.

There are good guys out there. Go find one.

Good luck
