When you find out that your partner has gone through a rough patch.
How would you feel?
Sorry for him?
Wish you just had not heard about that?
Lately I heard that my bf went through a rough patch back in almost 5 years.
He was dating with a girl who worked at the legal office.
They’d been together for more than 2 years, so he thought he was going to marry her in near future.
He was 25 and his girlfriend was 1 year younger than him.
Everyone thought they were going to get married.
His girlfriend got pregnant.
AND the baby was not his.(Don’t know why she knew that)
In fact, she was cheating on him at her workplace.
The baby’s father was her boss, the lawyer.
She decided to get married with that lawyer, not him.
He was so disappointed, devastated, I can’t imagine what it was like.
I seriously don’t understand why she cheated on him, because he contacts me every single day and tries to see me as often as possible.
I can feel that he likes me through his attitude.
Then, I realize that this experience was horrible for him, of course. I feel sorry for him secretly (he doesn’t know that I know this).
THANKS TO that girlfriend, he is still single and now I am dating with him happily.
Things always have both sides, I noticed.
This time these sides are extremely opposite though.
