One step forward, 500 steps back

Or at least this is what I kept telling myself yesterday to dull the pain after learning that Fab, aka M. Radin, was paying for nights in a hotel so he could sleep with his new girlfriend.

Who told you that?!!

Whoever it was should be slapped up-side the head. That is information that does not need to be shared. Send me a name and address. I'll take care of it.

What a twat! Has he got no feelings whatsoever? How did you come about the info? If someone went out of your way to tell you, then you should probably cut them out of your life as well. Where's the integrity here for either party?

I'm with the librarian.

Well, this is shit, and it sounds more and more like you're well shot of him.

Poor Sam. One thing you've got to remember, if you can, is that what other people do is almost always about them and not about you. In other words, his cheating is all about him and what he lacks, not about you.

It always hurts to find out what bastards they are/were....
On the other hand....better a hotel than your bed...
Not much...but a little...
And yeah, what kind of a friend told you that anyway? We don't always need to know everything....
Here's another hug...

Just hurry up and move to Paris, forget about him, and be happy! I know it hurts, so try to think about other things. And seriously whoever told you that is a jackass, did they think it was supposed to help?

Well, en Bretagne, there are many cons living there, therefore it rains a lot. Pardon my French.

Vive Paris!!!

We are all with you.

Oh God just reading that makes me feel so angry and it makes me want to biff him one right across his stupid face!

He's a Loser and she's a whore, they won't last.

You are definitely much much MUCH better off without him hon, and I've seen your photos on facebook, you're a beautiful girl, you're gonna be beating them off with a stick!

I understand you're need to know while at the same time knowing it will make the wounds a little deeper.

I can't imagine who would tell you this and why.
My only thought at this point is that he is not spending YOUR (like, shared) money to pay for this stuff. I'm assuming you have separated your finances at this point? Because honestly, that's what you need to be thinking about at this point.
But yuck. I'm really sorry about this Sam.

Oh crap Sam I´m really sorry. That must really hurt. What a huge mistake he´s making! He will be bored in six months to a year when the whole "Mr. Radin" mystery and fun dies off and meanwhile you will just be getting out there meeting lots of new interesting and honest friends. That´s how it ALWAYS works out.

:big hug:

OHHH!!! That makes me FURIOUS! This happened to a close friend of mine who was married for 16 years and has two kids... I think this men need to be slapped up-side the head, too! His HUGE loss, Sam... When he sees that, it will be way too late... You will find someone worthy of you.. I just know it...I'm so sorry to hear this Sam. You know that we are all hear for you... Hugs, hugs and more hugs... Leesa

Grrrrrrrrrr. I should like to toss a glass of good red in his lying face !

Fourteen-hour days, hah ! Bloody git.

He deserves a landside of bad karma raining down on his lying, dishonorable, cheating head !

I am seething .... !

This is a good, a very, very good turn for you Sam. Can you imagine going on with this idiot ? Pffft ! He does not deserve someone like you and I hope that the low-life of a woman (really, what woman would take another woman's man ? She does not even respect herself !!!) that he has paired up with run into the wall that they are running towards.

Really, I wish you the best. The very best.

Hang tough .... you will prevail. Heck you already are.

One trick I used when I was in a similar situation was to go through in my head every terrible revelation that might happen and then when I found thing out I wasn't as shocked and disappointed. He will regret losing you - they always do!

Yep, what a bastard ..

.. but I don't agree with everyone else on here who says you should shoot the messenger (ie. the person who told you about the hotel rooms). Personally I would rather know all the stupid details so that I could be as pissed off as the situation warranted, rather than being left in the dark (especially if other people knew the truth. If anyone should know the truth, it's you. In my opinion.)

oh Sam, i know it's shocking, but to move on, put all about him in the past, treat all time you had as just memories.
Big huggies.

You are better off without him. Keep telling yourself you deserve so much more.

I pretty much agree with everything everyone else said.
