So today would have been my 5th anniversary with my now ex SO. He decided to end our relationship by hopping onto a dating site and start chatting with women and also met up with one. He got mad at me because I found out and then told them he wasn't single (at the time). Told me I was controlling and he won't be controlled and I had no right to butt into their communications. Mmmkay. His ex wife cheated on him twice and that's why they divorced.
So that was his reason and that he wants his freedom now that his son is turning 18 and graduated from high school. (He saw his son a few weeks every year in the summer since he was 4 because he chose to move to a different state.) I have 4 kids who I have about 95% of the year because my ex hubby lives in another state. He knew this going into the relationship about my family situation. I thoughtI found a great guy who wanted this but turns out he doesn't. I get that he has a right to change his mind, but to do it by cheating. It effing sucks.
We do live together at the moment because financially I'm not in a good position with my job so I'm trying to find something full time. We are roommates. It's awkward, but I have my kids to focus on so it helps the relationship thoughts.
He tells me now he doesn't want to date others and just find his land out in the boonies, build a little house, and live alone on the other side of the state because it's to crowded over here.??? He works in A big busy city and absolutely hates it but won't leave due to the salary.
I've been here before 7 years ago with my ex so I know I will survive. I know a relationship doesn't define me as a person, but it's something I want to have in the future. And sex! I miss the intimacy of it. Sigh...
SO-5 years together-he decided to end it by cheating too
