Your Call – I Sent Flirty Texts to Other Women and GF Left Me

Dear Em & Lo

My girlfriend of nine years just took off with our three kids to her mom’s. She caught me texting another girl — this is the fourth time. All the girls were friends from out of state. As we text more, we got a lil flirty and that’s when my ex would step in. I never intended on physically cheating. I just would talk to other girls for advice on my relationship ,but it went further. I realize I made many mistakes but she is the love of my life and the mother of my children. What do I do? She is so mad at me.

Good for you … you have no business sending texts to other women especially flirty texts. She did the right thing and you shoud have known better. You are obviously not happy if you need to do that type of stuff. You are showing her NO respect and I would have left your ass too. Good for her and I hope she stayed away.


I’m sorry, but you’re just an idiot. You did it FOUR times. If she was the love of your life you probably would have stopped after the first, or second, or hell even third time she caught you, but you didn’t. You caused he great anxiety and hurt her like hell. Move on.

Realy!!!! does any one want to think of the kids and what HE!!! has put them through. have you forgotten that the kids have listened to the fighting, mom crying, oh lets not forget moving to grandma’s and you want then back together again for what? mom is hurt,angery, and dealing with the kids and the schools, the move,a broken hart, now lets put mom and dad back in the same house know what do the kids hear, do you think walking on egg shell is good for the kids? maybe in time mom & dad can work on this.… Read more »
Okay, let’s start with the painfully obvious: (1) No one likes for their partner to consult with the same sex on relationship advice. It’s a golden rule. Whether straight, gay, bi…doesn’t matter. It’s just something that’s in a human’s nature. (2) The fact that things would go a little “overboard” shows your partner that you cannot be trusted. It’s a given. If you love and care for the person you’re with, you would have no desire to let anything get out of hand. Men, in history’s eyes, have this way of feeling like cowards for stopping something from going too… Read more »

Hmmmm…….3 kids and 9 years? Maybe hitting Tiffany’s and getting her an engagement ring that you don’t need a magnifying glass to see it with would be a good first step toward setting things right. You seem like a complete dumbass, tho, and eventually you will realize everything that you have lost when it is wayyyy too late. The worst part is that you are giving your own children the shaft. you are a LOSERRRRRR………..someday they will DESPISE you and you DESERVE it.

is this what you would want for you kids!!!! for them to be treated like you treat their mother. do you want to see the hurt in their eyes!!!? would you like to see your grandchildern to go through the break up of their parnets?? lets get real just hearing the fighting that went on your kids heard it and are watching mommy cry OMG what a great father you are and lets not forget teacher as well.what will you think if one of the kids came home crying saying DAD that SON OF A B…. 4 times hows that… Read more »
I think the main point that should be addressed, if you were wanting to even think about fixing up your relationship, is this: You were doing something you knew would make her unhappy if she knew about it, and yet you continued to do it. That’s not one of the recognized symptoms of love. Simply knowing that she didn’t want you to do it, should have been enough reason to stop. To be sorry for doing something that is essentially cheating, or to be sorry for being caught…two different things. At such time as you find yourself in a relationship… Read more »
