He denied….until he couldn’t! He said that he knew he didn’t love her. He never stopped loving me. To be perfectly honest a lot of it is a blur, especially since this happened over 10 years ago. There was a lot of yelling and crying. In the following weeks he did everything to try to make up for it and made me feel vital and loved.
I had told him that there were 3 things he would have to do. One was for him to call her right then and there in front of me and tell her that they were done and that he was still in love with me!

In some of ‘their’ emails she was asking him about the Mexico dates. She had wanted to book a flight and meet him there and he never did answer her about it but I had made sure she knew that I would be the one going with him.
