What can I do?
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
When my ex and I broke up, he still had so many feelings for me, but I was ready to move on. Well, when I finally found someone that I cared about enough to get involved with, it turned out to be my ex's best friend.
Since -we'll just call him Mark- Mark still had feelings for me he played the "friend" card and told -we'll just call him Nathan- Nathan that since he was his friend that he couldn't date me.
So, Nathan and I put our relationship on hold to try to preserve their friendship untill he was ready to move on.
After about a month, I was really falling for Nathan and I wanted to be with him so badly. So, I tried to see if there was anything I could do to get Mark to let Nathan and I be together.
He said that if I had sex with him one last time that he would leave us alone and we could all be friends. Since, I had no feelings for Mark, I was at first repulsed, but then I realized how desperate I was to be with Nathan. So I did it.
Three days later I told Nathan and he was furious. I can't blame him at all because technically, I did cheat on him. We're still together, but now there's this rift between us. Is there anything I could do to fix this?
Keep talking about it as long as the discussion is not too painful.
By communicating how you feel, trust will be rebuilt. Be sure to be affectionate with Nathan too.
Good luck! George
