My boyfriend cheated and I couldn’t be happier
I had been with my boyfriend since we were in school and we are currently 25. We were DEEPLY in love with each other and we both knew that we were going to be together for a long time. Genuinely thought he was my twin flame or soulmate even.
About a year ago, he told me that he ran into his ex. I didn’t think much of it since I trusted him and they dated a long time ago. And he even told me about the little interaction making me think that he wasn’t hiding anything from me.
A couple months ago, I went over to his apartment in the morning on his day off to drop off some food and surprise him with a figure he’s been wanting. I had extra keys to his home so I walked in and didn’t see him anywhere until I walked into his room. I saw his ex in bed with him peacefully sleeping together.
My entire stomach dropped and my mind was RACING let me tell you. But I just left the food and figure on the kitchen counter and left.
When I got home I immediately blocked him on everything, instagram, number, snapchat, etc. I deleted all of our pictures and videos.
I told all of my friends and family to block him and I would explain why to them later. Every single thing he ever gave me I eventually ended up giving away or throwing out like clothes and trinkets.
It’s been months now and I seriously have never been happier my whole life. After almost 9 years of being so happy in love and being together, it all went down the drain in a snap.
I think not dwelling on it has made it a lot easier for me to get over. Of course there were times where I realized he wasn’t in my life anymore and it would give a sense of dread.
But I have come to a stage in my life where I am completely fine if not BETTER without him. I am so grateful I did everything I did back then to get past that situation and move on for the better.
