Guys, one of my backgrounds is in epidemiology and I am a microbiologist. I would advise you cancel any gathering with more than five people involved for at least a month, and even so I wouldn’t take my chances with those. Especially in the US where nobody knows how many people have the virus because the testing is not being done, there’s no containment and quarantines are just starting to be decreted.
I’m sorry but every wedding, birthday, party or whatever needs to be cancelled especially if there are older people involved. The US governement has handled this crisis like shit, so it’s up to us, healthy people to do our best. Please advise your relatives to STAY HOME. This is not a time to celebrate or to be selfish.
What made you pick up the phone and call him instead of a courtesy text or *nothing*?
I don’t know, I had never done something like this before. Since we still work on the same building and were on “friendly” terms, I thought it was best to do it over a call. And yes, he is a very shitty person. And this wasn’t the first time he’s said he wants to get back together.
Did you wait until you had your other STI test results back? No, since he told me he cheated on me I decided to get tested for everything. This was after the call.
I do actually feel very relieved to know the whole truth now and finally feel that validation that comes with knowing that youre not crazy, that your gut was always right. Follow my gut always is my new mantra.
Funny story, I decided to stop dating for a while but on Saturday I bumped into someone from Tinder I dated briefly last year. We were both at the same movie theater watching a movie solo, so we went to get a beer and talked until 3 am. That was fun. I might give that another go.
@CurlyQue I started watching Baby Cobra and never finished it, I will now, thanks!
@Kate yes, I won’t contact him again and told him to leave me alone too. It’s been so long that my reaction really was like “I fucking knew it” instead of crying on my bed like a Disney princess.
I had to call my ex and tell him and I think I got it from him, since he is the only person I’ve had unprotected sex with.
He felt like shit and told me that he always used a condom “with the others”. And I was like what others? And he confessed he cheated on me a couple times. And also he cheated on me with his married “best friend” that took him to Cancun for his 30th birthday. I was always told that they were only friends and I was a possessive jealous bitch. The gaslighting they BOTH did was massive.
Anyways, I finally know the truth and that I wasn’t crazy for thinking that friendship was weird, two fucking years after we broke up. I posted about them a couple of times here.
I felt down for some time but then relieved. And decided to pause a little on the dating until I get the thing removed, some other medical stuff sorted out and all my test la resulta back.
Oh it’s not like I’ll never date again. I will probably, I just want to wait until I get my results back. I decided to get tested for everything. But it did make me feel blue and down because I didn’t expect it.
I had to contact my ex boyfriend to tell him to get checked.
So, I decided to start online dating again, downloaded Tinder and went on three dates in a span of two weeks. Actually felt really good to be out there.
But then this week I had a routine check up with my gyno and found out I have HPV, which is pretty common nowadays, I know, but still is something that you don’t want. I have a lesion and don’t know if its high risk or not.
Anyways, there goes my confidence and my willingness to put myself out there again. I shut down Tinder and will be back to my den again.
