Cheating boyfriend

Recommended Posts

emily the wolf

Welp I thought that j finally found a good relationship... Turns out that since I was too insecure for anything NSFW he decided to cheat on me... Apparently this has been going on for the past like 2 months... And with my closet friend... I don't know what is worse how much I don't care about him anymore or how hurt I am...

I'm sorry to hear about this Emily.  I know how it feels to be cheated on and it is a terrible thing.  Especially when it is a spouse doing so.

There is nothing I can say that will make you feel better but I can give an old gals advice. 

Stay true to who you are.  Do not change for anyone just to get them to like you or get them back. 

Don't negotiate with anyone either on how you are or how you should be in their eyes.  

Be respectful at all times.  Especially important for us trans folks as being a vengeful "jerk" can only make things worse.

The hardest part is letting your heart heal.  Do not jump right into another relationship to lesson the pain of the one you lost. It mostly never plays out well.  It is not fair to your hurting heart and troubled mind nor the new person who is going into it with an open and hopefully honest heart and mind. 

If you do have someone who is a potential boyfriend then be honest about where you are right now and let them know to not expect a super slingshot into a romance.  Take your time and be friends first.  Close friends and then get to know a person before you commit your heart to this again.

Ok so this is great advice and about none of us ever follow it when we are hurting.  This is life and love is truly a battlefield at times.

I have been guilty of not doing any of these things in my past and I am on divorce number four.  So when I say "I've been there and done that".  I have.

Good Luck hon.

Sorry this happened Emily.

It's possible he was insincere from the outset. It's also possible he is just being driven by hormones and will mellow out in time.

Either way, you have to look out for yourself and do what's right for you, including taking care of your heart.

It sounds like you got lucky.


You found out he was a proper wrongen before it went any further.


Also I guess you also found out who your freinds are.


Sorry but Girl code clearly states you dont cheat with your freinds partner. Well is in my book anyway.


be glad to be rid of and find yourself someone who isnt such a bellend


Use it as a postive learning expreiance and dont get fooled again.

      I support this idea!

      yeah, my ex has gone trough similar things. It's not just us that transition, other people also have to adapt. I observe that often when a SO learn we are transgender there's often a kind of mourning period/adaptation period they have to go trough. It's cool that she's making efforts and it's also cool you let her process that and give her space to adapt. What she is going trough is normal I think. My ex is an expert at writing and I sometimes say semi jokingly that she should write a book for SO

      This is me to the letter. I hated that guy for so long, and now that I know who I am, I have nothing but forgiveness and appreciation for how hard he tried to do something impossible. He had to invent himself out of thin air and try to function as a person.

      OH, don't say that!

      I never used MySpace, but I, too, remember Compuserve.  And what a big deal it was when I upgraded my 1200 baud modem to 9600 baud.!   OK, I'm old.

      Here's a particularly relevant passage from the second link:     (I removed the citations from the original paragraph to make it easier to read)
    • secondlook
      My wife is still really upset about learning that I am transgender. Just last night she was sobbing about it. But at the same time she is trying so hard to be supportive. When I mentioned that a family member had said something transphobic over the weekend, she got mad at herself for having missed it and was truly sympathetic about how it must have hurt me.    When I noted, in hopefully a non-accusatory way, that she has at times seemed a little bit skeptical about my coming out, she admitted that she was. But then she admitted that she might just be in denial. I told her it was OK if she was in denial, it's only been a few weeks for her and I was in denial for decades!   Then this morning, she came home from an appointment and shared a story she'd read online about a young teen struggling with gender identity. So clearly she's going out of her way to educate herself and understand what's going on.   The thing she was upset about yesterday was that I had shaved my legs, and she asked me not to shave my other body hair just yet. She wants time to adjust. I think that's totally fair and reasonable. I don't want to leave her behind, I want us to navigate this together.

      Another former smoker here. I've been quit for so long that it's completely behind me. But in the early days of quitting I was very repulsed by smoke. Now I just move away from it. But then many parts of the country smoking is becoming rarer. TA

      I used to skate on the lake we live on when I was younger also.  So much fun!  When I was in the Navy I worked the night shift; it has a different vibe to it than days or afternoons.  Enjoy your nap later on.  Have a good day Donnie!

      Well it's actually just a play on the Boston accent: party is pronounced "pahty" sounding like "potty." I for one don't party in the potty. TA

      I found a couple of links through a cursory search:   https://www.hrc.org/blog/new-study-reveals-shocking-rates-of-attempted-suicide-among-trans-adolescen https://williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/AFSP-Williams-Suicide-Report-Final.pdf https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/142/4/e20174218   I haven't looked closely at these to see how high the quality of the research was.

      Hi there and welcome! I think lots of us cautiously stuck our toes in the water at the outset. It's okay to have confused feelings. It's okay to be unsure. It's okay to change your mind - more than once even. TA

      I remember CompuServe!  How did we ever survive on dial up??  I never had a MySpace account but my son did.  It was all the rage at the time.  We've come a long way.

      I chose to place this post in the General Forum (i.e., as opposed to the suicide prevention forum), since relates more to simple academic curiosity.   "Most transgender people have attempted suicide at least once in their lives."   I've read the above quotation so many times.  It seems like a truism to be included in any casual reading about the transgender population.  However, it occurs to me that I've never actually seen reference to a study in any of the scientific literature.  I'm assuming that proper studies do exist, and that one can likely assume that I've just never run across any?  Seems like it could be a complicated subject though; lots of reasons for suicide attempts; probably lots of suicidal-ideations sans attempts; and, there are certainly co-morbid conditions that aren't just secondary to intra-psychic distress caused by gender dysphoria; also, .  Again, just curiosity on my part; just trying to learn something.   Anyone have any citations (i.e., other than pop-psych surveys)?  I'm a goodly distance from a university library, and there's a limit to what I can research through the internet.

      First of all, I hope your surgery goes well and that you will feel all the better for it. Then comes the screed: The better overall physical condition you can be in, the better your outcome will be as far as resistance to pain. It's preached by the armed forces to the point of insanity sometimes, but there is some truth to it. A strong healthy body recovers from trauma faster. That shouldn't mean suddenly quadruple your exercise regimen. But having regular physical activity that is balanced between strength, cardiovascular and endurance will make things easier. For myself, between knee surgeries I had over a year to get ready for the second one, which included both weight loss and muscle strength gain. Recovery from the first surgery was prolonged and difficult. The second surgery I was up and around faster, more aggressive with physical therapy and recovered in half the time of the first. It's still going to hurt, but feeling healthy in your skin improves your frame of reference. TA
