I was in a 10 month relationship with this individual who cheated on me for about 5-6 months. I found his 2nd phone where there were dozens of apps, and hundreds of women he had chatted with, and pictures of women whom he was going on dates with or screenshots of their profile pics. He gas-lighted, manipulated, and emotionally abused me. There were a lot of red flags, but because I loved him and also he did a lot of other things to distract me from what was really going on (flowers, gifts, apologizing, love-bombing, etc). Quickly after I found the phone, I broke up with him but was going through so many confusing emotions that I had considered taking him back after he said he sought a therapist and wanted to make amends. I decided I couldn’t do it, and I found out he was back on dating sites and still has the 2nd phone. It really makes me sick that he could do that to someone without realizing how much he has hurt me, and I don’t want anyone else to risk being in my shoes as well!
