I’m starting to feel maybe the love was never there.
You see, I have been dating this guy, “James,” off and on for almost 2 years now. About 3 months ago he finally told me he wanted to marry me and start our relationship properly with no lies, BS, or cheating. None of that.
At first I was ready to say, ‘yes,’ then I remembered all the drama and cheating that went on the first time we broke up. After a few weeks of convincing me we decided it would be best for our daughter if we made a family, that way she knows what a real family is.
Yet, there lies the problem. About a month ago James started becoming distant. He told me that somebody was making him angry and that he no longer cared. In my head I began to think, ‘So, he doesn’t care about me or our daughter this is not going to work.’
Me, being one to never bite my tongue I asked James if he even cared for me or our daughter. He said he didn’t know anymore. Part of me wants to say screw it all and end it, but I’m not the kind of person to keep a man from his child. I have suspension that James is filling up another girl’s head who he happened to meet online. He told her that he wants to marry her and be with her. But at the same time he’s telling me I am still the only one for him.
Now in my mind I could just be paranoid but given our past I say it’s quite a possible. Now I’m not the one who brought up marriage he did. I mean James was the first one to say I love you, but now he’s acting immature. James will talk to other girls and what not, on-line, and even his boys before he even dares talk to me.
Do you think he’s cheating? Or, is it possible there's more to the story.
