  • It's Been Over A Year, Why Do I Still Think Of Him?

    I met "Mark" when I as 20, he was older and we started out as friends. He wanted to be a couple and I resisted the relationship idea for a few months. I had been hurt before by men.Mark and I dated for nearly 2 years. I loved him unconditionally, I grew to trust him 100%. Unfortunately I didn't realize it at the time but he was very manipulative and controlling. I thought he was just insecure, always accusing me of cheating or lying (which I never did) We finally "officially" broke up but never totally shut the door. I still loved him and he said he still loved me and wanted to be with me and me alone. Then the day after Valentines Day, I get this call from the other woman... My heart sank and my world crashed around me. The man I was in love with, the man that proposed to me, promised me a happy life together... had been sleeping with and dating his boss for at least 4 months during our relationship. I ended things imediately and told him exactly what I thought.

    It's been over a year now, and I'm engaged to an amazing man who is everything my ex never was. And yet I find myself comparing him to my ex... worrying that he'll cheat on me. Worried that I'm not going to be enough.. I can't help but to look at his profile every once in awhile... Seeing him with other women angers and hurts me. I want him to feel the same emotional pain he put me through. It's twisted but a part of me thinks "Mark" cheating on me was my fault, that I wasn't good enough or didnt give him what he needed... Am I going to be able to move past this and be a good wife to my fiance?!...
