I posted on the board before about being suspicious that my husband had cheated while out of town this past february... Well, I found out some even worse things that have been going on. I left him about 2 months ago, he was put in jail, released on 6/12 (he was physically abusive once, and that was it for me). I found out that four days later (I had been moved out and everything), he got some girls number that works at a laundromat of all places!!!!! I went through all the texts (he ran to the store when I went to visit my dogs at our old house the other day) and most of them were just asking how he was doing, him asking her questions, him flattering her. She seems very young. He already has a picture of her on his phone, but it was tiny and I couldn't see what she looks like. I am not jealous, I am mainly shocked!
He goes and does laundry twice a week to see her. I am positive they haven't been out on a date but one of the messages was him asking her "when can i take you out?". She replied "this weekend", which was this past weekend when I went to see my dogs. The worst part is, she isn't the only one. There is also one other girl i am aware of, who totally blew him off in the last bout of texts, but I have a feeling their relationship was sexual and lasted maybe 2 weeks. I barely left him 2 months ago and he is already scoping girls out a laundromats and god knows where else????? To make this worse, I found another girls phone number in there, that he hadn't called yet.
He is so sleazy! I never knew he would resort to this, and 4 days after he gets out of jail at that. I have no plans of getting back together with him, but who does this??? My best friend is a guy and he told me, guys deal with the ending of relationships much differently. He said, he is obviously lonely and trying to fill the void that you left. I'm positive this must've been how he dealt with his last serious relationship ending. I found out through a mutual friend that he has had a ridiculous amount of one night stands and flings that I wasn't aware of... long before him and I got together.
I am almost relieved that I saw his true character when it comes to women. For some reason I think girls need to know to be careful. He is so charming in all these texts to these girls. He comes on way too strong though. I looked through his phone to give myself piece of mind and wasn't expecting there to be more than one girl. I moved out and assumed he was not seeing anyone else and didn't want to date, but this totally proves otherwise. Wouldn't it be in his best interest to tell me, his stbxw, that he is dating someone else? What is he gaining from hiding this? I'm assuming it has to do with control. From what i gathered in most of the texts, he seemed to be pursuing her however, she did ask, "when are you coming to do laundry again?" and "how are you?". It seems so juvenile and trashy to meet someone at a laundromat. He knows he can't possibly be with anyone like me again... I am going to be a school teacher, and am a professional.
He seems so desperate to find someone so he isn't lonely. I feel as though he is living in some ridiculous fantasy world, that he thinks he will just magically replace me. He is an alcoholic, he is emotionally abusive, and has no concept of what a real relationship is other than sex and lust. I don't get it!
Opinions or thoughts, if anyone knows what I'm going through?
