You don’t appear to own clear objectives as as to what you truly desire. Could it be some one you will get along with on nights out, weekend times, as well as in sleep? As you’ve got that. Or you may not require him become an entirely trustworthy friend, who can confide their tips for you, or conduct their affairs with other people within an available, ethical way?
Because that last one sounds like either an excellent buddy — that you did not take care to actually make, we suspect — or somebody who is polyamorous / ethically non-monogamous, who has got taken enough time and energy necessary to think of these types of things.
If having some body enjoyable you can easily frolic from the evenings and weekends with is essential, keep seeing him. But simply just take 100% obligation for the security, he is doing on the side because you don’t know what or who. In the event that you actually need a friend you are able to trust, the next time form a no-strings relationship just when you understand a lot more about their life. If you like somebody who is ethical inside their behavior that is non-monogamous reading “The Ethical Slut”, or planning to a polyamory meetup towards you.
Or possibly you are able to tell him the problems that are potential have actually along with his behavior, along with the trust issue included. See if he is ready to simply take things sluggish for awhile, venturing out as buddies and trust that is rebuilding. And when you do get “The Ethical Slut”, you should look at it with him sometime, and find out if you cannot persuade him which he may be truthful and ethical in their behavior with females whilst still being get his crazy on.
(But no, there is actually not a way for certain you could understand the truth until he’s the type of person who would inform you. Individuals could possibly get more ethical and truthful about may be, nonetheless. Used to do. ) published by markkraft at 7:39 AM on January 19, 2013 4 favorites
If he is the type of one who’s confident with lying to obtain what he wishes, you might never find out of the truth. And you will never ever understand if another person’s withholding information or otherwise not. I have had calm, ultra-sincerely delivered lies told for me while keeping the cool, difficult evidence of said lies there within my hand. The lengths some social people will go to to guard their fictions can be quite shocking. In place of asking ‘why would he lie? ‘ perhaps think, ‘why would he tell the reality? ‘ you are FWB so he does not really should be honest – the stakes are not so high. They can trot some blah blah blah out excuse in a much calmer way than he would with a livid, serious girlfriend. What is the worst that may take place? He discovers another person to rest with.
TBH it appears so he can cop to the stuff he’s forced to while maintaining plausible deniability like they did have a monogamous agreement (he’s trying to get her back right now, which is why he tells you he might be sleeping with her in future) and he’s doing damage control with you. The complete ‘crazy ex-girlfriend whom’s manufactured their whole relationship in her own head who is now composing delusional letters for you’ (therefore many man’s exes are ‘crazy’, right? She is indeed mentally ill and has pulled this out of her ass when they talk about their partner’s wrongdoing? ) Statistically speaking, it’s very unlikely that. Why now rather than prior to? Presently there’s nothing left to get rid of. It is only worth maintaining your composure if there is likely to be a payoff.
FWIW we think you will find really few individuals whom operate under genuine delusions. We additionally do not think you should be ‘crazy’ to deliver a message to another celebration, permitting them in regarding the picture that is real. Perhaps Not certain it is one thing we’d do myself when I question it can attain much, but i could positively empathise because of the motivations behind it. It’s not an outre or absurd response to being cheated on after all, and does not have to be a good thing that is selfish. As a feminist, component of my reasoning should be to protect one other woman along with her passions, FWIW.
As other people have stated, at the best he’s somebody who’ll trample blithely on the hearts of other people so long as it gets his dick wet. Exactly what your relationship to all or any this is (Not My Boyfriend Not My Problem? Dickweed i’d like nothing at all to do with? ) is your decision.

Do not tune in to every one of the individuals in this thread who’re suggesting your FWB is somehow being misleading for you or her. Absolutely Nothing in your account shows that may be the situation. This really is a he said/she stated situation, and all sorts of you really find out about his other sexual partner is the fact that this woman is claiming that they had a committed relationship. You do not really even understand if she thinks that by herself, in the end. Individuals usually have completely different some ideas in what the “rules” of the intimate connection are, and merely as the two of these saw the bond differently doesn’t invariably mean he had been either deceiving her or ignoring her reported feelings. You literally understand absolutely nothing in what proceeded among them, and aside from any actual evidence, you have no explanation to not ever think your FWB unless he’s currently proven himself become dishonest for your requirements in past times.
This is exactly why it really is an idea that is dumb her to have contacted you- you do not know one another along with no real explanation to trust her account of things.
Has your FWB been honest, sort, offering, good for your requirements up til now? Why allow the tale of the complete stranger have significantly more sway within the word of someone that has been honest and it has treated you well this far?
Then that’s reason enough not to continue with him all by itself if your FWB hasn’t been honest, kind, giving, good to you up til now, well. Posted by eustacescrubb at 8:01 have always been on 21, 2013 1 favorite january
