I'm Not Sorry For Falling In Love With Your Man

I'm Not Sorry For Falling In Love With Your Man

I wanted that hope in my life, even if I took it from yours.

I shouldn't love you. Everything was off, especially the timing.

How can you meet someone so perfect for you, but at such a bad time? I know this perplexing feeling, and it's crushing.

Because all you want is them but you know what you are doing is wrong. In this case, it's because he is attached to someone else. I know, I know. People are going to call me a slut, home-wrecker, and so many other bad names.

The thing is...I have no defense and I tell him not to defend me either because they aren't wrong.

Not one word is wrong. It doesn't matter that I only had two boyfriends and never kissed a guy until I was 19. It doesn't matter that I never had negative intentions with him, but that I was lonely and we connected over shared interests.

Honestly, neither of us planned this. I know I didn't.

If anything, I resisted as much as I could. There are no excuses for what we did. It doesn't matter that I would console myself with "their relationship has been over for years" because it was never formally over. Until me.

I wish I never hurt you because I'm sure you are just as human as I am. I'm sure you deserve someone to love you the way he loves me and I love him. Don't you owe it to yourself to find someone who doesn't cheat on you?

I bet you laugh at the fact that he very well may cheat on me. I'm willing to take that risk, and I hope the leopard can change its spots. I believe in him. I believe in us. I know he wants to spend his life with me, no matter how long that may be.

I call myself a feminist but after what I've done to you, I question myself and my loyalty to women. I question if I'm a good person. Many people will say no but I like to think I still am.

I hurt you. He hurt you. You hurt him.

Everyone hurts everyone.

It's an endless cycle, one I don't believe will ever end. I learned to be wary and distrustful of people and I'm sorry for that because he made me begin to trust people again. That's why I love him. He had so much hope and love for people, despite being hurt time and time again.

I wanted that hope in my life, even if I took it from yours.

Here's the thing I learned though: I'm none of those things I mentioned earlier. I'm just a girl, who fell in love with your man and I'm so very sorry for hurting you, but I don't regret making him mine. I don't think you'll ever understand how sorry I am that I hurt you because I truly believe in supporting and respecting all women.

But I'm human who makes mistakes and falls in love. I'm a human, who hurts people and continues the cycle. I'm not a slut, even though you say I am. I'm not a home-wrecker, even though people will say so, even if your home was broken long before I came along.

I'm a girl who found a man that needed one push to leave a broken relationship. He needed a friend, someone to listen to him about his day. I'm not some succubus that seduced your man into her bed with her wild sex tricks. I have zero sex tricks. I'm as vanilla as they get.

I'm just a girl who fell in love with the right man at the wrong time, and you know what?

I'm not sorry for that.

Every Girlfriend Should Try Her Boyfriend's Favorite Video Games

If you can't beat him, join him.

If you are a girlfriend, you probably know what it feels like to despise all game systems ever created. They’re the second – if not first – love to almost all guys and what’s worse than your boyfriend paying more attention to zombies than you, right? I completely understand.

But what if you joined the game? AHA!

Of course, at this point, you’re probably confused and thinking “I don’t even like video games,” but you will never understand their thrill of stupidity until you step into their shoes.

Instead of standing in front of the television with your arms folded, patiently waiting for him to turn the system off, ask him for the joystick. He’ll probably question you as a joke or tell you, "you’re going to ruin my online rep.” But stand firm in your decision: play the game.

In my experience, I ended up playing NBA Basketball 2k18 and before I knew it I was screaming at the TV saying “AND ONE!” while my boyfriend watched me impatiently. As a guy, he constantly wanted to partake and quote on quote “help me,” but ladies we can’t have that.

Three words, “I’ve got this.”

Long story short, I was playing video games for five hours without even realizing it! It was like a burst of energy soared through my body during those moments and I was never even a little bit tired.

I had finally stepped into his shoes and felt the adrenaline of staying up all night, yelling at my television and actually winning video games.

I would like to compare it to doing drugs. Although, I am not a junky like most guys have become.

I’m not sure exactly how they last so long because I eventually realized I had class the next morning and real life was still happening, but for a split second I gave them the benefit of the doubt.

All in all, girlfriends let’s take the shoe off their foot and put it on ours. You may fall in love with video games or you may still never figure it out, but it never hurts to try! You never know, you could actually end up developing a stronger bond in your relationship, just by nagging less and joining the nonsense.

But guys, this is still not an excuse to ignore her. I repeat, not an excuse.
