I’m dating a man I can’t trust. I know he cheats on me all the time, in fact I’m not sure this child I’m carrying is even his. What should I do? Should I stay with him for my baby’s sake?
Cheated on in Chicago
I’ve said it once and I will say it again, you don’t need a man to complete you. If that man is cheating on you then you don’t need him in your life, drop him before you have that little one dear. Your baby will thank you for it, unless of course it is his daddy, in which case he might be very upset. Are you very certain he is cheating on you Hon?
Maybe the two of you should talk things over and get to the bottom of all of this. It sounds like you need to get things figured out on your end too, you don't want to be known as the Frisky Freida of Chicago's Canasta Club. We have one of those at my Thursday Bingo nights, Oy what a hussy! Your baby doesn't need that. Remember, you are thinking for two now.
I'm not judging, that's how I got on such good terms with Frank Sinatra, (that's a great story for another time) but I wouldn't really advise you to go down that path, Mia wasn't too keen on the whole idea. Come to think of it neither was my Charlie... there was a man that looked good in a uniform...very good... mmm takes me right back to '66 when he was drafted. I'm sorry, I'm getting a little verklempt... he never came back from Vietnam. Frank never came back to me either... not even after he and Mia called it splitsville two years after their sham of a marriage broke up. Let me compose myself....
Hon, what you need to do is find out if this man is cheating on you. A good man is hard to find and even harder to keep.
