You two are broken up so don't try to believe otherwise. You're either together or you're not in which case either of you can see who you want. Breaks or separations can happen in a marriage where there is a lot more on the line. Let me ask you this. If she was to get back with you right now do you honestly think you could trust her? Don't you think even a year down the road if you got back that this still would make you wonder? Trust is a hard thing to get back. You now have some serious baggage with this girl. I think it's best that you tell her it's not a "break" but a break up and that you two should no longer be in contact. If not I think Ivan safely predict the same behavior from her going forward.

And yes, that was a typo. Im a guy
People can also lie. My ex told me she was over a year since her last and came to find out it was only a month. She wasn't over him and I ignored the signs. You just have to watch for the signs and bottom line is a month or a year, if they're not over them you'll know it and you know it with this girl.

Fidel,

You know what to do. I feel the pain in your post. Obviously you love her and it is for all intents and purposes, going unrequited.

She keeps the guy around for ego kibbles at the very least. If they ran into each other recently I'd bet dollars to donuts she banged him recently.

Somebody that has THAT much attachment to an ex where they will mislabel them in their contact list on purpose means they are not really into their significant other as they claim to be.

Words are cheap...about as cheap as a St. Louis Hooker. Actions mean everything. Thus far she has proven by action that she will cheat on you physically if the opportunity presents itself. And it obviously has. No one keeps a flame like that unless the other person banged them real good.

Run screaming into the night from this one, and chalk it up to experience before she drives you nuts. She already is, so get her out of your life this very day or you'll regret it. And get an STD test. I wouldn't trust this one any farther than I could throw her. And in your shoes I'd be throwing her like a Discus

Sure, talk to her about it...While you have your boot firmly planted up her ass in the sweeping motion required to kick her to the curb.

You are only being unreasonable if you allow her to continue to date you at this point. If she hasn't banged him yet she is certainly gearing up to do just that.

Life is too short. Sure, there are a lot of vehicles these days for people to carry on with nefarious activity. That does not mean you have to remain in Limbo due to her poor decision making.

Fidel,

That is because there is NO connection between her words and her actions.

You have started another thread recently regarding this same girl.

Ask yourself these questions:

1. If these questions about my GF and her potential extracurricular activities rear their ugly head on multiple occasions (hence the different threads), then what benefit am I getting from being in this relationship?

2. Why am I relying in what she tells me about these incidents when what she says runs completely counter to her actions? Am I really the one she wants to be with or is she paying me lipservice while her actions bring to light a potential desire to wrap her lips around somebody else's member and giving them the service?

3. What do I see in her? And what future do we have if I cannot be sure she can keep her legs closed?

Young man, you already know the answers to these questions. And I understand your hesitancy to pull the plug here. But these nagging questions are not going to go away. On the contrary, they are beginning to pile up.


Yank that plug like it was Bin Laden in a Coma with a DNR.

How do you know that last part to be true? Dude it's so clear she still wants her ex but cant be with him the way she wants. Why are you letting yourself get played. Downgrade her. This stuff frustrates me so much smh

Did I do something wrong?
Yes,

You didn't boot her out of yoru life a ong time ago.

If you think she will honor that not seeing other people business while you two are on a "break" after she says she does not know why she does these things, then young Fidel, you will get a rude awakening.

She is laying the groundwork for you to come back like a lapdog and resume the relationship once she has gotten her depths plumbed either by her ex or the other guy form Instagram...or both. And for you to accept her excuse when you find out they both treated her like a farm animal that "we were on a break" or that she is "confused", or not sure "What she wants".

Yeah, this subforum is littered with the husks of people that took their spouse, gf or bf at their word when they agreed to not see anyone else during the "break". Only to come back a short time later and tell us that they could not believe they were betrayed...

Dude, I don't ever want to have to tell another person here "I told you so"...unless you are a total jackwagon that deserves it.

And you are not a jackwagon. You are just a young man with your heart being ripped out inf front of your eyes.

Delete her from your life before you become another husk.

If your best friend was telling you this story, what would your advice be to them?

It's not even about that. They are still in sexual and/or romantic contact!!! She's still sexting with him when she could have been sexting with you! You're playing yourself. Sorry

What she's saying and what she's DOING are two different things.

And you have to look at what she is DOING--because she'll say anything to not be alone and keep her convenience: you.

Let's look at this:
Quote:
This time last year I [24f] found out that my girlfriend [22f] of 2 years was sexting her ex.
I confronted her about it and she agreed to block him.

Things were good for another 6 months when I noticed a message pop up from him on her phone.
So, sometime in those 6 months, she decided to be deceitful and unblock him so she could talk to him. Doesn't matter the reason. Did she come to you immediately and tell you that dude's family member died and that she was going to unblock his number so she could reach out to him and "comfort" him? He had family and a girlfriend to do that, so don't know what she felt she had to offer since they'd been broken up. That was her trying to get back with him while he was in a vulnerable position--and he had a girlfriend already, so she was trying to be the side chick on the DL.

Quote:
We almost broke up then but I gave her another chance.

She, again, blocked him as well as taking the extra step in deleting his number.

A couple of months ago, curiosity got the best of me and i checked to see if he was still deleted. His number was saved under the name, "G". He was, however, still blocked so I didnt bring it up.

A couple of nights ago I noticed "G" under her recent texts.
Again, sometime in the past few months, she decided to be deceitful again and unblock him and not tell you she was doing this. I mean, if right was so on her side on this, what did she have to fear by telling you?

She is looking in your face everyday and lying in it.

Here's the thing: A woman who is emotionally done with her ex DOESN'T sextext with him. She doesn't lie by omission to her current boyfriend, she doesn't unblock the ex nor does she rename her ex's number so she can still receive sexts from him, because as you said, she got rid of the messages before you could see them. If she had nothing to hide, why delete them? Because they were proof of her deceit.

I guess my question now is: how can you believe anything she says about anything? She's proven that she's not above lying and keeping you in the dark. Are you going to like the person you have to become in order to have this chick in your life?

.

OP, THIS is the main difference in these matters between most men and women...

In these matters,we men tend to want to stretch this out if possible because they want to get what they can, while they can..as we have fragile egos it is a mystery to many of us men why all women wold not want us simply because we exist(.I am writing that through the eyes of my 20 year old self...not my 53 year old self.)

When a woman is DONE...she is DONE.

Your GF is far from that and showing you by actions just the same that she is far from done..

Don't do me. Don't chase after that girl you think deep down is so special when in reality, she is not. The circle just keeps spinning and for every good pang she gives you, there will be three bad ones to follow. Don't wait on this like I did, where I became so emotionally trapped with someone screwing with me, I adapted the habits and brought it back to her. It's awful. Deal without her right now and in time, you will feel better and ask yourself "DAFUQ WAS I THNKING?"

I don't know if you can even tell someone this. It's something they inevitably learn after getting dragged and disrespected until eventually the other person leaves them for someone else or tells them it's just not working. Or they just reach the end of their rope with the blatant cheating(rarer).

Then they are embittered and jaded about rships for years to come. It's like reading from the same script. Denial is a weak opiate but it's enough

You did everything right, actually. But, I would strong advise that you just move on from this relationship as nothing good is going to come from it. A trust was broken and you are just going to wear yourself down trying to trust her again. I guarantee you will go back to checking her phone and questioning her at every turn if you do. That's not healthy, for either of you.

You're both young; learn from the experience and move forward.

OP, I do think you're being a little unreasonable, but if it really bothers you then you should talk to her about it. It's best to get things out in the open.

But I do think you're overreacting. I mean, let's keep things in perspective. We are talking about 'likes' here...

Coming from someone who doesn't consider letting someone who isn't her boyfriend use sex toys on her "cheating."

OP, you have valid reason to at least be on your toes. At first, I thought maybe this was just some random dude on IG, but if they're communicating, there's at least some deception going on. At best, it's inappropriate and showing a lack of boundaries. Rather than shut down the guy's innuendo, she encouraged it.
