(beware long story ahead)
I have been with my boyfriend for under a year, the relationship started off perfect, he was so amazing and we were very happy, we have a connection I have never felt before and honestly i felt like i was in love with him after our first date because it went so well. I felt so safe with him and i've never felt happy before.
A bit of time went by, I think 5 months, our relationship escalated very quickly as he told me from day one he was so serious about me and every day he done nothing but treat me like a princess. I had my suspicions about him as my past relationships havent been great and honestly, i've always had trust issues. He'd always like other girls pictures on instagram and follow around 30 girls each day. We argued over it and he stopped because i find it disrespectful. (i know people have different opinions on this but i just dont agree with this)
One day he was out in the car and he left his phone in my house, i went to grab it and couldnt help but snoop. I have never done this in any of my relationships before but i just had a gut feeling and what i found shocked me and hurt me more than anything has ever hurt me in my life. I felt truly traumatised and my life just felt as though it came crashing down , how could something so perfect be so fake? how could my happiness become instant sadness like this.
I found he had been watching porn everyday, i mean, i know guys watch porn and i get it i've never actually had a problem with this atall. do i love the thought of it? no. but its not the end of the world, as i scroll through, i see all these fake accounts i had no idea about, a twitter account dedicated to girls with onlyfans and porn that he had literally just been on before seeing me. a tiktok which was purely obviously just for him to wank to girls dancing which i find extremely disturbing as that is definitely not what that app is for!
so we get into an argument because i feel betrayed he lied to me, i have twitter and he has always said he never used it. so since then my suspicions of him not being honest with me grew. I told him i was not being in another relationship where im being lied to and if he had anything else to tell me then he should, he begged me not to leave him and told me he had nothing to hide and that he was disgusted he was on this. - later that night we go to order food, i order it from his phone and pops up a very strange website - where girls are getting their pictures taken unknowingly?!?! or so it seems. some of these pictures werent even nude, just VERY weird and disturbing, so i just begin to just question who this person is.. because he just doesnt seem to be the person he makes himself out to be, I then find that he has a completely different snapchat account that i was unaware of, after begging him to let me see it for hours, he wouldnt let me, we got into a massive fight and eventually i see a bunch of naked pictures and him snapchatting girls every single day, I was completely heartbroken and left that day.
A week of me being absolutely devastated went by and we didnt speak, he ended up coming to my house and begged for another chance, i began to think, maybe i over reacted because its not like we were going out for a long time and maybe it wasnt as bad as it seemed. He promised me he'd change and that he would do everything in his power to make us work and i believed him.
so months went by we started to become happy again, of course i had issues trusting him but we were really building it. I ended up moving in with him and we just became closer and closer and aside from all the lies no one could ask for a better boyfriend, he really done everything he could for me. Which made me believe he really did love me.
I found out last night that he had girls over at his flat when we broke up, he says he had guys in too but he ordered food and on the just eat website it says there was only 2 drinks ordered, which makes me believe there was only him and one other person. The boy lies like something i have never seen before, when i ask him over and over he literally isnt capable of telling the truth and it is so frustrating and makes me react like a crazy person. I've never done anything to him or lied to him so i dont understand what i done to deserve these lies. So we argue for ages over this then once again i find on his internet history that he has been watching porn every day when im in the other room? he'll pretend to go to the toilet and have a wank? and he deletes everything but i found a way to find the deleted history. So i just believe he does alot more than that, i feel he's back to his old habits again.
I know to many people i might sound crazy and like im over reacting, but it kills me that he'd rather wank over girls on the internet than just grab me, it makes me feel so worthless, Im fairly confident that im a very good looking girl and i know i satisfy him in bed as sex lasts about 3 minutes.. if anything it should be me watching porn to get off.
it makes me feel so low and honestly right now i feel depressed because i know he will never change and i know i need to leave, even though besides all of this our relationship is so special, i just know one day i'll probably walk in on him doing alot worse than what he's doing now because he is incapable of being loyal. Its so hard to leave him because i do love him.
I cant see myself getting over this anytime soon. When i was single i really loved myself and felt so happy but i just feel now he's ruining my confidence. has anyone had similar experiences? has anyones boyfriend changed?what do i do? how do i find myself again?
