I feel hurt that my boyfriend is still friends with the girl he cheated on me with
I don’t know where to go or whom to talk to about this, so I’m here in hopes that someone will help me out My boyfriend (20M) of about 2.5 years cheated on me (19F) with a girl from his class, who also happens to be in the same friend group.
I feel that I cannot ask him to completely cut contact with her considering they’re in the same friend group and also in the same class..
He says that he willingly doesn’t want to hangout with her anymore and has been putting a lot of efforts to make us work, which I can see and I sure do appreciate.
He said he stopped talking to her completely and whatever happened, he tried to avoid or ignore her at every possible interaction.
He stopped hanging out with friends if he knew she was gonna be there too. All this I rlly did appreciate and hoped he’s actually changing and we could make this work.
He is my first love, after all.. All his friends recently went on a trip, he refused to go but they convinced him and took him too. It is hard for me to trust him the same way again but I believed he wouldn’t do anything to break my heart again.
Now, that girl posted a picture of them on her story, just the two of them on the boat, and he is wearing her bucket hat.
Not just that, even in one of the group pics, he’s sitting next to her and has his hands on her shoulder. Looking at these pictures I feel miserable. I feel heartbroken. I feel so helpless. It’s so painful I don’t want to let him go but it hurts me so bad to witness things like this..
I hate that I’m in this situation but I’d also hate to have to say goodbye to him. I hope it’s not wrong that I feel hurt because he’s still friends with her..
