DEARSUGAR and Low Self Esteem Jean need your help. Her boyfriend is famous for giving her excuses even when he's been caught red handed. Can you guys help me out to make her see that this guy and his lies need to be kicked to the curb?
I have been with my boyfriend for about eight months now. Overall it's been good, but we've definitely been through some rough times and we do seem to fight a lot. The downfall started when I caught him kissing another girl while we were at a friend's house. Ultimately I forgave him because he claimed that he was drunk and didn't even remember it.
Next, I found dirty pictures that were emailed to him from his ex girlfriend. He told me that it was only a joke and it would never happen again. Again, I forgave him. Since then, I have caught him in a handful of lies, but he always seems to have a legitimate excuse.
The problem is that I really do care about him but I am getting frustrated finding out all of these things that are diminishing my trust for him. I don't want to lose my boyfriend, but I know what he's doing is wrong. At this point, I'm so confused that I'm not really sure what to do. What do you think? Low Self-Esteem Jean
