She was happily planning her future with the man of her dreams. He had other ideas! A visit from his best friend turns into much more and turns her world upside down!
A Long Term Relationship
At the age of 26, the Original Poster (OP) had been in a loving relationship for over eight years.
Looking back, she considered those years the best years of her life.
Fairy Tale Romance
They never fought, always talked about their struggles and problems, and cherished each other’s company.
It was almost like a fairy tale.
Through Thick and Thin
Their lives hadn’t always been so perfect. Before they found each other, they both had difficult experiences that scarred them.
Her partner struggled with depression, and her dad mentally abused her for years.
They Supported Each Other
But together, they pulled each other out of their difficult situations and became better people.
They had been through a lot together, the good and the bad. When her mom passed away last year, he was there for her, and they talked even more about their plans for the future.
Plans to Adopt
They had even planned to adopt a cat, and the night before the visit to the shelter, they discussed their future plans with her family, including marriage, kids, and a house.
Things Changed Overnight
But the next morning, everything changed.
He broke up with her, telling her he never had any feelings for her, but he thought he did.
His Heart Was Elsewhere
Instead, he had developed feelings for his best friend, a girl from another country whom he had met online about a decade ago and had met in person twice.
A Visit Had Turned into More!
The realization of his feelings had come when the friend stayed with them about three weeks ago, and he had decided to make their relationship official.
She was devastated, as she had no clue about any of this.
He had never mentioned anything was wrong, and they had kept making plans for their future.
Why Wouldn’t He Try to Fix It?!
She was hurt that he never thought about relationship therapy and was already moving on too fast. It seemed like the 8.5 years they spent together didn’t mean anything to him.
She Was Caught Off Guard
Her friends and family were furious at her ex for how he treated her, and she fully agreed. She started to think more about the situation, and they discussed it.
Not Compatible After all
She learned that the new girl and his future plans don’t align at all. He always wanted a lot of kids, but she doesn’t want any.
Every time he spoke of his plans, it sounded more unrealistic to her. She thought sooner or later, he would realize that he wanted different things in life.
His Family Didn’t Support Him
His family, who knew about the new girl, wanted to support him but also thought he was making a huge mistake.
She wanted to remain in his life, even as a friend, but made it clear that she would not take him back if he ever realized he made a mistake.
She’s Moving on
Right now, she lives in her mom’s old house, which now belongs to her and her brother. She also hopes to adopt a cat soon, which was one of the plans she had with her ex before everything fell apart.
Despite the pain, she’s determined to move on with her life and create new plans for her future.
He Will Soon Regret it!
One user wrote, “I suspect he’ll regret his decision. Do get a cat. It will help take your mind off of things.”
It Wasn’t Meant to Be
Another responded, “Even if the other girl is not right for him, he doesn’t want to be with you.”
