I met him around 3 years ago but we started dating 2 years ago. He was friends with my friend. He was lovely, the type of guy that you imagine staying with forever. He would buy me flowers, he was gentle and loving, caring, had a sense of humour, was handsome, and a great listener. We moved in together in November 2010, and spent some time traveling together in Australia, but in July of 2011, he started working 450 miles away.
He came back up every 2-3 weeks, but slowly things started changing. Every time he came to see me he was too tired or lazy to do anything; I could never do anything right and he became more secretive.
For the last few weeks he had been calling and texting saying how excited he was to come back up and spend time with me, but he let me pick him up from the airport last Friday and then told me that he had been seeing someone else and he wanted to end things with me. He wouldn't admit how long he'd been seeing her but he said it was my fault for always working or being at uni (excuse me, who was the one that worked at the other end of the country?).
He has also demanded that I leave the apartment. I'm now left penniless and homeless. I returned to uni last year to do post-grad and he encouraged me and told me he would support me (as I was going to support him going back to school when I got a job), but he's abandoned me and now I'm left in a position where I'm struggling to afford to continue the course.
I know it's for the best and I'll meet someone else, blah blah blah, but I can't understand how the man that loved me could transform into such a heartless monster. I just don't know how I'll ever trust anyone again.
Have you ever had someone completely turn on you like this?
