I am livid and disgusted with a man I had no reason not to trust...
Won't go into all the boring details but it came to my attention yesterday that a past friend I had reconnected with via email and phone and with whom I was supposed to meet possibly later this spring, has been carrying on an EA with me and lying to me for the past few months about his involvement with somebody else. He knows my story in much detail and he knows that I would never, ever get involved with anybody if they were seeing somebody else. I guess it was easy for him to hide since he lives abroad. We talked at length about this, and yet, the man who claims to still deeply care about me did this.
I am feeling horrible, for having inadvertently been the OW, the damage I might have done to their relationship without knowing, having been used by him and having been betrayed by somebody who I thought was a friend with the potential to maybe be more again in the future.
This has snapped me right back into my 2014 mantra - no dating, no relationship, no FWB. Just me, myself and I - working, taking care of my girls, developing friendships, traveling and enjoying single life to the fullest.
I just wished I could wash this horrid dirty feeling away, yuck.
