Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
I've been with my boyfriend for just over a year and a half. About 2 months ago he told me that 3 months into our relationship he slept with one of his friends. Even though it was hard, i decided i loved him enough to forgive him and give him another chance.
After talking he really seemed to understand how I felt. Slowly i've been feeling less hurt and began trusting him again. But a week ago when the subject was brought up he expected me to be completely over it and now i feel almost as bad as i did not long after he told me.
What should i do?
Men seem to operate on a totally different timetable when it comes to forgiveness. If the tables were turned, he probably would have been over your infidelity long ago. Don't dwell on this; if you care for him then never ever again bring the subject of his cheating again. If you can't forget, then you've never really forgiven him, you don't trust him and maybe you should move on. Good luck
