People are so desperate to dismiss information and live in denial. My ex cheated on me and it made me realize that he lied to me about being broken up w/ his ex when him and I first got together. I was very vocal about it, but he's lying to everyone to try and deny it while saying that our 4 month relationship was actually only 2 weeks long and I just went nuts when he dumped me. What makes more sense that someone would go crazy after 2 weeks or that a cheater would lie to cover his ass?
I got a nasty message from his ex recently calling me a liar. I told her that the first night I slept w/ this guy was in a hotel and gave her the actual date. In her message she said she knew I wasn't with him that night b/c the cops pulled him over on his way home from the bar and escorted him to a hotel. Um...how often do cops pull people over for DUIs and then take them to a hotel instead of jail? I can almost understand believing the other bs he's lying about, but buying that story is just plain naive. Then she said "he even showed me the receipt from the room!" Of course he did, I was right there at the counter when he signed for it! No one was denying that he was there, but he wasn't alone.
I have never been in this position before and the part of it that is driving me crazy is that he gets to cheat, but get away with it while my name is the one being dragged through the mud. I just can't get over how badly people WANT to be lied to so they don't have to accept truth that hurts.
