LENGTH OF RELATIONSHIP: 4 1/2 years plus some
DUMPER: Pam (technically) Tommy (for real)
INFO: Met in college at 19, had a carefree/passionate relationship for 2 years. Pam had an indiscretion w/ex (Bob), which was later put on police record as forced sexual contact. Couple lived together for 1 year. Tommy had an indiscretion while she was studying abroad. Pam broke up with Tommy after she graduated from college b/c she thought the relationship was unsavable. Pam truly loved Tommy. Tommy accepted the break up at no contest as expected. They continued to see each other for 6 months.

Tommy eventually lied to Pam on the premise that he needed time to think while he was really fucking a married woman with two kids and a husband in jail. Pam didn't find out till 4 months later why Tommy really left and almost died from grief.




Im sorry i have gone so long without contacting you, but it has been good for me to put things into perspective. I appreciate the e-mail. I also realize that the entire situation with Bob was the beginning and trigger of our down fall. I am 100% sure that I was in love with you. But now things have changed. I will never, ever say that I regret any part of our relationship. You were an amazing thing that happened to me. You are an amazing person - I mean that! And I've learned a lot and grown a lot from our relationship. IT WAS the right thing at the right time for me.

I KNOW NOW that you never cheated on me, and I'm really sorry for cheating on you as a way to retaliate. It was a huge mistake and will be a giant bruise on my character for the rest of my life.

However, whether or not you did cheat on me now has little impact on the way i feel. I had other reasons to lose my trust in you which came from the entire incident as a whole. I know that i have been very selfish and done some fucked up things to you, which you mentioned once again in your email. I feel, though, that you have done some dishonest things to me and i have realized recently why the two of us are not meant to be together. You have been dishonest and slightly manipulative in the last couple years. You played too many games with me and have not been up front about your feelings. Too many times you would disguise your true feelings of hurt into anger towards me. Too many times you would blame me for all of OUR problems. Too many times you would try to make me feel guilty and make me feel like the only one in the wrong in our relationship. You have not been up front with me about certain issues in a long time. I think you need to mature in that sense, because I have been up front with you.

None of this should matter, though, as much as it once did because i know now that our relationship is over.

Also, I REALL WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT the good has outweighed the bad. I am a better man for loving you and i would never take back a single moment of it. You have taught me a lot about life, love, and relationships and you have been a best friend, a great lover, a giving person, and A LOT OF FUN.

I will respect your decision if you don't want to be friends, but i would hate to lose contact with you. As far as proving, loving, and communicating (the things which i need to do to keep contact) you know that i am not looking for forgiveness and you cant expect these things from me. What's done is done, lets put it behind us and move on. I would hate to have you leave my life completely, but i am 100% DONE rehashing old wounds. I want you to be my friend, and i am willing to be their for you any time you need a good friend. If you want this now, or anytime in the future, let me know and i will always be there for you - i promise!

PS-i don't like the line about you wanting someone who gives back and makes you the better person you used to be. I DID GIVE BACK, and i don't appreciate being labeled as someone who only took!


[one month after this email was sent Pam's good friend was jumped and killed from massive head injuies, her aunt died from terminal cancer in the same week. Tommy was not there for her as promise.]




I made a list of 100 reasons why I am so glad I dumped you.

1. you are lazy
2. you stood me up at an abortion clinic
3. you solicit sex online
4. you stood me up at the airport when my grandpa died
5. you cheated
6. you took money out of my bank account w/o thinking that I work 2 jobs, pay my own rent and save for school
7. you thought I was your maid
8. 4 years No orgasms.
9. 4 years less than 4 flowers
10. you forgot my birthday 3 out of the 4 years.
11. you tried to dump me on my birthday.
12. you smoke

None of the items on this list matter because I took you back after every single incident. If you think I only blame you for out problems, I am sorry. I loved you, I was willing to fight, to be patient, to give you time to do what ever you wanted.

I do blame myself, because I was immature, because I didn't always know how to handle my anger. It doesn't really matter anymore. You are a thousand miles away and not one word I say will bring you back in the way that I want you.

The person I loved doesn't exist anymore.

Reading the list of "reasons I'm glad I broke up with you", you'd have to be pretty fucking stupid (or have a REAL low opinion of yourself) to put up with that shit more than twice.

You have GOT to be better than that. In the future, don't settle.

Alot of shit happens in 4 1/2 years. . you may judge that I was a total idiot, I chalk it up to being immature and too patient. I thought if he loved me enough he wouldn't do things that hurt me, so I waited.

So know now it is the future, that relationship has been over 1-2 years. . and all I meet are guys 100% motivated by sex, i say do away with the species.

I totally understand where she is coming from. Girls wait and think that he loves he will change, the next time i need him he will be there, but that never happens, if they aren't there the first time you need them, the guy will never be there, not for you. Maybe he will change for someone else but not you. 4 years is a long time but at least you have realized it wasn't worth you time anymore. I know some woman that have been with the same type of guy for 20+ years not that is sad :(

I would marry that girl.

I dont know beans about what goes on in a female's head - but she went though some crap and this guy put out a lot.

A guy better harbor guilt when he knows it is deserved. Guilt is an alarm. If he KNOWS something unavoidable will occur that day and DOES NOTHING to prepare his mind for it, he will loose all the blood in his forhead and like a warm blanket.

Note to female: if he does avoid any infidelity (even if handled at all costs without tact, respect, or speaking in tounges) during those minutes of comatose guiltless vaporlock - know that he is aware that he is being given an acid test that he is attempting to win.

Dumping him after you SEE him when tested and he does not make good is your duty. If you don't then you are too weak and you deserve the treatment he gives.

If he knows it is wrong that is not enough. In the morning he has to start the guilt. Letting it grow carefully and not allow it to stop until it is like the same uncomfort as forcing himself to love eating warm feces. The idea is to make himself sick to his stomach the best way he can, and hold it there until saying "Nope, better not" wins.

Everytime he feels guilt he has been given a gift.

Wow. . .you would marry me?? I'm Pam in this whole stupid story.

I just wanted to let the general public know that I haven't been in a relationship since then and while everything else in my life is pretty much perfect I can't have a normal relationship so I just don't do it.

Pam again. i haven't had a real relationship in 4 years. . I think that being independent has been the best thing ever. . I am so happy that I live for myself, have succeeded on my own but i can't even hug a guy with full trust. I want to love and can't. I don't think it is Tommy's fault. .and I don't think women should shy away from breakups b/c they are afraid to be alone..but it would be nice to atleast know somepme liked me for me again.
