Any love connection must be built on trust. It gives couples confidence in their significant other’s affection and devotion. Without trust, they may struggle to flourish as a pair since even little breaches can lead to emotions of betrayal and hurt. The story below where the boyfriend reveals his situation on what happened between him and his girlfriend is a reminder that even the most seemingly secure relationships may be fragile, and that it is critical for individuals to talk openly and honestly with their better half in order to avoid misunderstandings and misery.

I’m still in shock. I’m heartbroken.
My gf and I have been dating for 4 years, we live together. During that time she has been obsessed with a very minor YouTube musician. He has a few videos with a couple million views, and a small following. During our entire relationship she has always claimed that he was her “exception”. I always assumed it was a joke, I’d fire right back with my celebrity crush.
Well he went on tour and played in the city near us at a small venue. She went with a coworker to see him. After the concert she didn’t come home that night or answer my texts, I assumed she slept over with the coworkers since she lives closer to the venue.
She came home the next morning and didn’t talk about the concert much. I asked questions and got vague answers which was odd, I assumed she was tired. Later that day she broke the news to me. It was bizarre. She said it with a smile on her face as though I was going to be happy and excited for her. I am heartbroken. I was yelling, we were both crying. She said she didn’t know how I’d react, but she didn’t think it would be this extreme. She said I always knew he was her exception. I didn’t think she was serious.
I am currently staying in a motel and I don’t know what to do. I love her so much, but I cannot think about her without thinking about what she did. She has tainted my memory of her. I cannot help but think that clearly she does not love me unconditionally like she claims she does, because this is not love. Clearly I am not the one she is obsessing over, even though she is the one who I have always obsessed over. If I am not enough for her then I don’t know if I ever will be. And it clearly seems as though I am not enough for her. I am lost. I am hurt. I am alone.
