My partner of 10 years ago left me for another woman. This is my letter to him, one year on...
It’s been a year now. It's weird that for almost 10 years we lived in each other’s pockets and now I barely hear from you.
I do still think about you, but it doesn’t feel like someone’s punched me in the stomach anymore. Even when I hear what you’re up to, it doesn’t hurt, not even a little. That’s what time does, and that’s a good thing.
The first time you cheated we had just bought our first house together. You always said she was just a work friend, that you were her superior, you just got along really well.
Watch: Emotional V.S. Physical Affairs. Post continues below.
She was a few years younger and "immature" was the way you described her (super original hooking up with a girl from work, by the way).
As it turns out, she knew you had a girlfriend but didn’t care. She pursued you anyway.
She tagged you in things on Facebook sent you Snapchats and messages, but I wasn’t jealous because I knew you loved me.
You were never possessive of your phone, you never acted any different. I was worry-free.
When I found out the truth, my stomach dropped. I went into a full on rage.
I have never been so angry in my life.
I sent her messages, I called you and could barely speak.
You ended it immediately with her, apologised profusely and told me she meant nothing to you.
