Last year (2014) I spent most of the year traveling around Europe for my job. I met a guy who's a photographer through a friend of mine (I'm a model). Me and this photographer became close over the months and eventually started sleeping together. Eventually he became my principle photographer, we would do photo shoots by historic icons around Europe . He's from Europe and I'm from the United States, so he basically picked all the spots and made all the arrangements since he was more familiar with the area, he became something like a manager/photographer. I knew that I wasn't staying in Europe long but during the summer things became so serious between us I couldn't bring myself to tell him that I would be going back to the U. S soon. I planned on leaving in October but in August I had an emergency that forced me to come back to America. When it was time to leave we had a huge fight because he felt I wasn't being honest with him, he thought I lived a secret life with a secret family and it's the reason why I had to hurry up and leave him, but that's completely false. He even told me to leave his house and told me to never contact him again. He even destroyed some of the negatives we took around France and those are the same pictures I wanted to keep and use for advertisement, he even destroyed a portfolio he helped me create. He ruined a lot of my things out of anger. Now I'm without a lot of my art (photoshoots) and it set me back a few months and I have almost nothing to show for advertisement and he ruined my chance to submit my portfolio. He felt betrayed, but so do I because he used his talent and creativity to help me but he used it again to destroy me. I planned on going back to Europe for a few months and redo everything again but there's a very good chance I will bump into him. Who's in the wrong? Me or him? Can we do business again? Can we fix our friendship? Should we have avoided the sex from the beginning? I want to know where we went wrong.
Most Helpful Guy
it can be done but is very tricky.
Not sure what to tell you about this guy. He seems a not so nice guy.
I travel the world too... emergencies come up. I have seen it happen, it has happened to me. I was in a far off place when each of my parents died and I had to go back to the States.
I guess that most emergencies that would need you to leave that fast would be explainable. So why would he not understand it was an emergency and think you were misleading him. Not blaming you, just saying the story seems strange and he reacted extraordinarily given you had an emergency to get back to.1
