Relationships are sweet when they are going well. When the sparks are flying, when all you can think of is him and when his smile is all you need to make any day memorable. Love is beautiful but there are many times when we fall in love with men who keep their crazy side hidden until it is too late. These men only bring out their true colors when things are not going as well as they would like. These women had their fair share of messed up exes.
These are their stories.
He cleansed Facebook of any indication that we’d been dating or even that we’d been friends for two years beforehand, then went back to his ex. That hurt more than the breakup itself, just because it seemed so effortless for him to erase any sign of our friendship. He did it all so casually and then was shocked when I unfriended him on Facebook. He seemed to think the friendship would just pick up where it left off. I guess the relationship meant a lot more to me than it did to him.
Out of the blue, my ex broke up with me over the phone the day before Christmas Eve. There was no indication that anything was wrong and we had made plans to meet each other’s families. He was supposed to come to my extended family’s Christmas party so when he didn’t show, I spent the evening explaining over and over again why he wasn’t there. It was the most humiliating thing that I have ever been through.
My ex boyfriend stole all of our rent money, convinced me we were robbed and I had to borrow money from my family and friends to cover rent for three months after that. This was all when I was 22 and didn’t value myself. I knew what he had done but I was in such denial, I chose to go with his story.
He cheated on me for over two years out of our three year relationship. I could tell that he was more distant at times, but at the time, I had no reason to not believe him when he said things were okay. Things weren’t supposed to stay super passionate, right? He had multiple girlfriends. Whoops! It left me with a lot of difficulty trusting people.
I was with my ex for 10 years and I never really asked why he never proposed after so long. We even had two children and I thought our relationship did not need to be defined by formality so I trusted him only to find that he was cheating for all those years and even has a child with the other woman.
My mother passed away a few years ago and this man I had only been dating for about 3 months manipulated me by using my mom as a weapon against me. He would say things like “Do you think your mother would be proud of what you are doing now?” or “Is this what your mother would want of you?” He would do this when he thought I was not doing what he wanted me to do.It tore me down pretty hard.
