Ultimately, failure to put their partner first was a sign these guys were not ready for a serious relationship, or at least not with those particular women, and that is totally normal.
But it’s not cool to pay lip service to intentions of growing a serious, long-term relationship and from the onset demote your lover to second-rank — even before you message her on
he was very hurt and even started suspecting that my baby was not his, it got so bad that he didn't even tell his parents about my pregnancy until a month away from giving birth, he didn't want to talk to me, but I forced him because I realized after my second trimester that I made the biggest mistake of my entire life and it was hard for him to forgive me, I was left alone, sad, angry, and bitter.
I wanted a second chance, but it was just so hard for him to forgive me. Ree In June after 8th grade, I found out that I was pregnant.
One day, however — trust me on this — the will to live fully again, and even experience companionship, will arise. It’s hard to throw yourself back in the dating game after 30, 40 years or more. I tell those I counsel to look at it this way: Cherish your old relationship, but don’t let it sabotage your prospects of forging a new one.
