Please hide my identity. I have a boyfriend who I met two months ago. We have been very good together and he never gave me a reason to doubt him, his words or actions. I also have a friend who I’ve known since school days and she is currently my roommate. I am the kind of person who does not show off my partner until I am sure that our relationship is mutual and we are actually making progress. I didn’t tell my friend about my boyfriend because we are not so good at sharing our personal lives even though I told her that I met someone, I didn’t show her his picture or go into details.
Last Valentine, my friend left on Friday and came back with box of gifts. I also went to see my boyfriend and gave me box of gifts too. I came back that yesterday because I was going to work on Monday. When I returned, I realized that the gifts we got were exactly the same. No difference in the contents. They were even wrapped the same way. My friend and I were both surprised and it raised our suspicion. We said it couldn’t be mere coincidence and so we had to open up to each other.
We found out we were dating the guy and so I faked urgent illness and called him to come and take me to the hospital. He drove to my house and met the other girl. He was surprised and tried explaining. My friend and I were angry so we didn’t listen to him. My friend told him it was over between them but all I could do was stare. I was so surprised. I get used and stupid. I have loved this guy since we met and I was already seeing a future with him. He called and kept on apologizing and sending messages to me on WhatsApp.
My friend told me she was done with him and I could have him all to myself and continue the relationship if I wanted. I don’t know what to do. I love him so much and I don’t know what to do about this. I feel like I didn’t give him the chance to explain himself. Perhaps, it’s not as bad as we think. He was probably looking for who washrag to settle down with. I don’t know what to do. I love him so much and thinking about the situation of things make me worry.
I need your suggestion. What do you think I should do? Should I continue dating him or just let go. I love him and I have become so attached. Please help me.
