Best friend dating ex with children
I don’t say this to judge or to blame, but I think it is important to be clear about what has been happening.
She will very likely be devastated and feel betrayed by her best friend and by the man she thought she had a lasting future with.
If you find you are struggling with feelings of guilt or sadness in the aftermath of your talk with your friend, I encourage you to seek out support from a counseling professional. Consider how much you can and should trust a man who would break up with someone so abruptly after four years and within two weeks seek solace from her best friend.
I am not saying that what you have isn’t real, but might you find yourself in a similar situation four years from now?
I later found out that Brian and Sarah had been sleeping with each other for two years, since Kim was born.
It was almost laughable afterward when I put together so many obvious signs that I had refused to see for the longest time.
One afternoon, when I was pregnant with our second child, James*, I was upstairs in our bedroom while Kim was napping.
Well, me and this guy started sleeping together about two weeks ago and we're crazy about each other. My feeling is that she would be very hurt, but at the same time I don't want to pass up a chance to be with someone who could turn out to be the love of my life, you know?
So a part of me wants to tell her in the hopes that she would be happy for me, but when I put myself in her shoes hearing this news, I think I'd be devastated.
I imagine you once thought that you would never choose a guy over a friendship.
Those beliefs get put to the test when we are confronted with real-world feelings and experiences.
