1. I Was Young, I Didn’t Know Any Better
It was not. We wound up eventually breaking up.
When I was younger, I didn’t really know any better. I forgave her at the time but I was never able to trust her again.
What the hell, let’s drop some truth.
I was 20 or 21 at the time and was in a long term relationship. We had been together for 2 or 3 years so I had some time invested in it which is part of why I was reluctant to break it off.
My ex and I had had a fight. She walked away, I went home. She decided to go drink at my best friends house. Yes, it’s what you think. She drank a bunch and had a threesome with my best friend and his girlfriend.
She called me in the morning and confessed immediately. I went off the deep end. I was shattered. I didn’t know what to do. She kept saying crazy things about how she was so sorry and that if I wanted to I could go fuck someone to make it even.
Twisted, twisted shit.
Anyways, it took a week of fighting and I finally forgave her, but like I said I never really trusted her again. She wound up going up north to work for a season and cheated on me with an Eskimo. I am leaving the joke available for whoever wants to grab it.
After that we were done, and I was broken for a bit. Silver lining is I eventually met my wife and I learned what a good relationship actually looks like.
As an aside, I once left my wife at a bar because I had to go home to get my id. She was pretty drunk. When I got back to the bar, I saw a guy wrapping his arm around her. She removed it with the disgust and gentility that one would dispose of a dead mouse. It was a glorious moment.
2. Simple, Love
Because I loved her, because I always imagined that I’d spend the rest of my life with her. But she ended up leaving me down the road and her unfaithfulness was a contributor to her decision. I’m glad she did, because I would’ve stayed with her but it was never the same, to this day the person I miss is not the woman who left me at the end of it.
