Betrayed
Name: Elana | Location: Brooklyn, New York , NY |Question: Hello Moxie,

This is going to be a long one?

What do you when someone you've been betrayed by someone you never expected EVER to hurt you? I've been with my bf for almost five and a half years. He's the love of my life. We've had breaks in the past, but we've always gotten back together because it feels so right, worth working out the issues.

Lately things haven't been as exciting. We've become comfortable and some of the passion has fizzled out. I still love him like crazy though. We talked about it last week and he told me that sometimes he wonders if we belong together and what our relationship would be like in the future. I was floored but I told him that I wondered the same things from time to time but that I knew that I only wanted to be with him. He said that our relationship had become routine. I admit that it has and I'm more than partly to blame. I'm in an extensive post-grad program and it wears me down. But I know that's not an excuse. Anyway, I asked him if he wanted a break and he didn't say anything so I knew that was a yes. So we said that we would take some time to figure out what we really wanted.

A few days later, he came over to my place to pick something up from a friend. I told him that I was so sad. That I couldn't believe that after five years he wasn't sure that he wanted to be with me. I told him that if we were going to do the break that I couldn't see or speak to him because it would be too hard. He said that he didn't want to lose me and that if the break was going to mean that, it wasn't worth doing it. We were going to work on our relationship. I felt so much better, still sad but not hopeless.

We sat together for a while in silence and I asked him if he was sure that he wanted to work on things. He said yes and repeated that he didn't want to lose me. Then out of nowhere he said something along the lines of, "I have to tell you something. You're going to hate me. You're too good for me. blah blah blah?" And then he told me he cheated on me. I was shocked. Never would have thought he would cheat. Turns out he slept with a friend of a friend while on vacation last August. He kept it from me for 10 months. I feel like he shouldn't have told me after waiting so long. He says he told me because he thinks that I deserve to know the truth and that he can't start a life with me without being truthful. But at the same time he didn't want to lose me
