Well, I got a text today from Manwhore saying that he has moved, changed jobs, and no longer needs his website and he asked me to shut it down. The website was the only reason that we had continued to stay in sporadic contact since the week of Thanksgiving. Of course he also refused to tell me where he had moved to because he was trying to create a “new start” for himself. This probably means that he’s moved in with either the woman that he’s been seeing since Thanksgiving or some other unfortunate soul and is now planning on getting married for yet a 7th time. (His 6th divorce was supposed to be finalized this month. Perfect timing, eh?) Good luck on that one. Lucky number seven probably won’t be as lucky as he thinks. It’ll just be one more disastrous marriage that ends in divorce and yet another woman getting her heart broken by Manwhore.
Since January of 2010 I had met him, dated him, been bailed out of jail by him, practically lived with him, fallen in love with him, listened to him tell me that he was falling in love with me, that I was his best friend, that he really cared for me, and that he truly valued me as a friend and more. So, after finding out about him cheating on both me and his girlfriend up north, I found it even more insulting that this “man” and self-proclaimed “friend” couldn’t even take the time to tell me goodbye either in person or on the phone. He did it via text message. I’m all for technology, but when it comes to relationships and important matters, some things still should be dealt with in a more personal way.
I may not have gotten the closure that I wanted, such as slashing his tires or hitting him over the head with a baseball bat, but at least he is really and truly out of my life for good now.
Question: How do you deal with a breakup and getting over the person that you were in love with?
I’ve never found this easy to do. The only thing that I’ve noticed that actually helps is just the passing of time.
Take care & please post any comments or thoughts or questions.
