6. IT WAS ALL ONE BIG LIE.
In hindsight, although they gave the appearance of a perfect relationship, this couple was actually on the road to trouble and heartache. There was something in this guy that made him act like this. Was this his way of trying to force a breakup? Was he looking for a thrill? Was he genuinely interested in me? Either way, by going behind his GF’s back in the most horrible way possible, he showed that he’s incapable of the sort of love I thought they had. A part of me wanted to never tell my BFF about this and just let her live on in her relationship thinking it was still perfect, but of course I couldn’t do that. She had to know the truth.
7. IS NOTHING SACRED ANYMORE?
It hurts me so much to think that such a beautiful image of a relationship could be destroyed in an instant. I used to think that true love existed and that it’s pure and beautiful. I used to think that this relationship is what true love looked like. Now I don’t even know if there is such a thing anymore.
8. IF EVEN A SEEMINGLY PERFECT COUPLE IS DOOMED, WHAT CHANCE DO I HAVE?
That’s the problem with looking at something as an outsider and then basing your life goals on it. These guys started off so brilliantly. In fact, this guy swore to both me and my BFF that he was truly in love and happy to begin with. Obviously things changed with time, which leaves me thinking that most relationships must not have a future. If a couple that started off so happy ends up in such a dire situation, can any relationship withstand the test of time? People get used to each other and get used to being in a relationship, so how many just stay together out of habit? How many people secretly cheat on each other? After all, not all guys turn to their GF’s best friend for sex and not all so-called best friends would do the right thing. People have affairs and some affairs can last for years. Sometimes I just despair of this world.
9. HOW CAN I EVER TRUST ANYONE AGAIN?
Knowing that someone who started off as the perfect boyfriend could do something like this is really frightening. Could I count on anyone to be faithful in the long run? I know that I’m going to be really paranoid from now on and it’s freaking me out.
