“Snorting”

best of secrets!

When I heard him snorting up in the bathroom. Later in the relationship, he got mad at me because I didn’t set up an appointment for him to start seeing a drug counselor. (He was driving freight trucks and sitting on his ass for hours waiting and doing nothing, but I was supposed to set up an appointment for him while I was at my office job. Yeah, right.)

Aftermath: It was way too long for me to realize he wasn’t going to give it up, but I am gladly away from that now.

“Breathing quickened”

secrets!

I was engaged to a man who lived in a different state. He called me every night when he got home from work. One night, it was getting very late and he hadn’t yet called, nor was he answering his phone. Around 2 a.m., he finally answered and sounded very odd. He kept trying to get off the phone, but I demanded to know what was up. Finally, his breathing quickened and became erratic and he stopped talking to me. I knew he had another woman there and she was…well you can imagine.

Aftermath: He confirmed my suspicions the following morning & begged me to forgive him. I dumped him immediately & now couldn’t be happier he cheated on me. It saved me from marrying a philandering creep.

“9 to 5”

best of secrets!

We met at a party. He was well-dressed, smart. There was dating, good sex. I asked why he didn’t work 9 to 5. He told me of his scheme that involved retail white collar theft and eBay. Then, he finally told me about prison. He gets charged in new felonies and tries to get me to testify in his case. He had his lawyer harassed me to perjure myself. Now, he writes me flowery jail letters. I read them and laugh.

Aftermath: Lasted zero days after he was arrested. He is still in jail. He tried to get his cousin to sell me his truck for bail money, but then wouldn’t sign over the title.
