I'm divorced after 23 years and I fell in love with my best friend of 6 years and he and I started dating and he cheated on me like my ex husband and I am so hurt and confused as to why? I was told by both that I'm a good woman and it just happened. I'm destroyed especially with my best friend knew what I went through with my ex... how could he betray me?

I am so sorry you are going through such pain and betrayal. When someone breaches your trust in such a way it is a direct reflection of their character. Its them, NOT you...it doesnt make the pain go away or the anger or feelings of loss and rejection because I know the pain. It will hopefully direct your attention towards them and what kind of person they really are versus who we thought they are. Cheating is a character flaw of the person who cheats. Its not a reflection of you...a real man would not do that to the woman they love.

I can't imagine what you're going through and hope you have sought out a counselor to help you work through the betrayal. If we choose not to work those our issues, they will become baggage that we carry into the next relationship. You deserve to be loved and cherished.
