Oh man...that is tough, horrible, awful stuff.ReplyDelete
Hurts me just to read.
My friend, she deserves so much more. She's so warm and giving and fun and loyal - but for some reason men have never been nice to her, and she loves this one despite the fact that he hurts her. She's spent half her life with him. They have a child. There's no easy answer. It's heartbreaking.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry for your friend. It sounds like she has a good supporter in you.ReplyDelete
I hate cheaters, men and/ or women. I also hate the people they cheat with. The ones who get cheated on? Damn I feel bad for them. I'm sorry your friend is going through this right now. At least she has you.ReplyDelete
Hey Lady just poppin over to say hi from FTLOB! LOVE your blog! You have a new subscriber, have a great day!ReplyDelete
Wowzers, lots of thoughts. You blog name had me way off track!ReplyDelete
I don't understand cheaters, its just not fair.
Hmm. If I was her I would completely ignore the other woman. And tell the bloke that if it doesn't stop pronto then locks are getting changed and stuff dumped on the lawn. But it's easier to write that than do it. I hope she's ok and you sound like a good friend.ReplyDelete
I'm sad for your friend as her tale hits close to home as my parents' marriage ended due to my father's cheating. I was in sixth grade at the time and I remember a lot of tears in my house and it forced me to grow up quickly. My heart really goes out to your friend and her child(ren).ReplyDelete
On a more positive note, thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
I hope you have a great Sunday.
Yes, how awful. What kind of woman is able to live in a world of instability and insecurity you ask. A woman in love. So hard. So awfulReplyDelete
That sounds.. painful. In a very literal way. This is no comparison, but before Luke, every one of my boyfriends cheated on me. With the last one, I clearly remember telling him I knew but I'd let it go if he just stopped seeing her. Obviously, he didn't.ReplyDelete
I feel her pain. My thoughts and prayers are with her and the little one.
Natalie, I feel you on this one. And what a great way to put such thoughts into words. My sister went through this. Was the scorned and disrespected wife, and I used to ask myself these same questions.ReplyDelete
By the way, I could have sworn I was already following your blog. How ditzy am I?ReplyDelete
Wait, don't answer that.
I'm following now. Hopefully. Or maybe I'm dreaming...
My mom went through this with my dad. It was hard to see her go through it. It took a long time for me to trust my father after thant. I understand how you must feel for your friend.ReplyDelete
I've always thought cheaters were the lowest people, and deliberately sleeping with a married man...these people are cockroaches.ReplyDelete
It's awful listening to stories like that and feeling helpless to do anything for your friend but listen.
Not that cheating is okay... but you never know what lies are being told behind the scenes. When I was a party to a married woman's cheating, she told me all the classic lies: "I'm leaving him," "He's gay and I'm just here so his family doesn't disown him," etc. So after 3 years of her "about to leave" him, I gave her an ultimatum - him or me. She chose him. Then they had a baby (gay, right?). Then they got divorced. She and I have become only distant acquantances since then.ReplyDelete
Also, helping her cheat made me feel like a dirtbag.
I don't know what sense this makes. It's late and I'm tired. :)
this makes me so sad and mad and makes me think of evil thoughts...lol... and all kinds of stuff.ReplyDelete
