Being used for my empathy?

Re: Being used for my empathy?

thank you for your post, Canary, it is very validating.  I think you have nailed it on the head - the thing I finally realised about my ex is that being a liar is a way of life for him, he is fine with it, it is who he is.  And anything and everything goes when it comes to maintaining his closet - it's his home, I was never more than wallpaper for him.

Everybody thinks he's such a kind and gentle man, so trustworthy and though I know firsthand how unkind he really is I also don't feel like I need to warn people.  I think he has done well in his professional capacity.

Re: Being used for my empathy?

I understand how you feel. I broke up with my gay ex boyfriend two years ago. I just wish that he had only wanted to be friends. He was not honest and that hurt.
