Been there, SM. It’s a tough pill to swallow but truthfully you made out very well here. A girl like that will fall back into the same habits in a few years and you will be exceedingly glad you’re not husband / no longer part of the equation.

Alternative perspective—I started dating someone almost immediately after I broke up with my ex. I had let the relationship drag on FAR too long and I did not even love my ex anymore. The person I had started dating had been one of my best friends for a long time. So it is possible that nothing was happening on the side while you were together. Not that it makes the breakup any easier, I’m sure.

If you dated someone that quickly who was also your bestie, I struggle to believe that relationship was completely innocent while you were with someone else. You don’t suddenly flip a switch, there must have been flirting and emotional cheating with your bestie before breaking up if you’re truly honest. I don’t buy this at all.

That's one helluva rebound. Maybe the engagement is because of the pregnancy.

Can't tell from your post if breakup was mutual, how long you dated, etc.

If you're down, just know you'll find something else when the time is right.

If you're relieved, you dodged quite the bullet you lucky bastard!

Judging by the timing she must have gotten pregnant immediately after your breakup since usually us gals wait until 12 weeks to publicize the news...

Haha, thank you all for the uplifting words and comic relief. I needed that! We dated for almost two and a half years, it was rocky but we both felt like we were the ones for each other. She cut it off abruptly right before the holidays after a fight and ghosted me for 3 months. We connected again last night and she told me all of this.

i have a group of girlfriends that i have been close with since birth. as a result, i’ve never really had STRONG personal connection to any of them individually…in addition, i moved away from them and they all hang out and live together in the city by our hometown. whereas i have no other close personaly friends in my own city.

it’s going to be so awkward to choose one person to be my maid of honor. but i guess i have to..? my husband has his best man selected easily.

When to break-up with someone? I’ve been dating my gf for 6 years (2 long distance 1yr on a break and 3 living together. Nothing terrible about the relationship but I’m not happy and no longer feel in love. I’ve tried working it out but haven’t felt the relationship has gotten any better. I feel at this point the best thing to do for both of us is split (she shouldn’t be with someone that can’t love her fully). So here’s the options continued…

I finally did it.. I finally divorced my physically abusive wife.

3 weeks ago Manager went all balistic on me because I did not coach the juniors at the time when I took emergency leaves for 2 days because my sister was hospitalized. Her words, "Problem sabki life mein hain, chutti mein kaam bhi dekh sakte they."

Now she was on leaves since 4 days because her daughter was unwell. I did not call or text her once out of courtesy and managed the work well.

To all the managers who say problem sabki life mein hoti hai, just stop there. Have some empathy.
