Love is blind
Cheating is bad.
If your boy/girl gets tanked and makes out with a stranger it's pretty hurtful. You'd probably want to punch them in their whorish mouth and fill their iPod with music from Barney.
Understandable ... a fitting punishment.
But what would you do if you'd been with some one for over 4 years ... even lived with them ... then found out they'd been seeing someone else FOR A YEAR behind your back?
Not even a lifetime of music sung by the friendly purple dinosaur would be enough.
If you shaved their head and glued the hair inside their mouth that STILL wouldn't set things right.
This just happened to a friend of mine. I feel so enraged for her. I always really liked her boyfriend. He was a great guy – fun, sweet and seemed to adore her. I never would have believed such deceit could come from a person I considered a friend. Such cowardness in not coming clean to either woman. As if living a lie is so much easier than being honest the people he supposedly loved.
Cause really, keeping everything straight for a year could not have been a simple task. I mean ... how did he even swing it?
I'll tell you how. Love is blind. You don't want to believe that your partner would do anything to hurt you. You trust them. They tell you something, and if it's feasible enough, you accept it ... because the alternative is unbearable.
Yet my girl is bearing it now. Her chin is up, and she's getting her life in order. A life that used to be intertwined with his.
Shame on him.
