A while back in my life I had this trashy girlfriend and long story short, everyone told me she was a slut but I refused to believe them because even though it had good evidence, it just wasn't what I wanted to hear. She cheated on me multiple times and we broke up. I realized that I had a problem with listening to outside people's doubts about my relationships but didn't expect that to happen again.
If only I had listened to the advice you gave me. Everything you said was true but it was so much easier for me to just ignore it and soldier on. When she broke up with me, she might as well have used your exact words. So that leaves me sad and lost with no idea where to go at a time when I would really prefer support. Thanks for trying to help me as best you could
