My girlfriend was talking to a guy behind my back for over a month.
Thursday February 25th 2010 I found out that my girlfriend was on the phone with another guy (since January 15th 2010). At this period of time they... Show More
Thanks in advance

this guy was probably giving her emotional and mental attention that she felt she wasn't getting from you. also this guy was going through a lot of problems and she probably felt like she was being a good friend by being there for him.. it seems like she really does care and I don't think she was cheating. it seems like the guy could have been looking for a way "in there" but I doubt she was, she just liked the attention. of course she hid it from you because its not very pleasant for a boyfriend to hear.
try giving her the attention that she was getting from this guy. take care of home first and then this will probably go away. good luck

of course I can't speak on ur gf's behalf. I've been with my boyfriend for almost 5 years. so for me personally, I wouldn't have any reason to be talking to another guy so frequently for a month. and on top of that, keep it a secret. on one hand I'd say if u've kept a watchful eye on her before and known to bug out on things that were actually nothing then maybe that's why she would keep it a secret. however, the hours at which she would speak to him provide reason for suspicion. but point blank, if she wanted more communication from you she should hav simply communicated that to you instead of seeking it outside of the relationship. so the main question is whether or not you feel these issues are reconcilable? hope that helps

WAY TOO many trust issues..
Dude, I open the page and there are 9 updates with an essay above it.
I'm not even gonna read this question before I say that she isn't the girl for you.
And proof, I'll take a random clip from your question that I disapprove of:
1) "All this period of time (month or so) she was asking me to break up because I wasn't talking to her and that she need it a lot "
2) She never got physical with him ( I believe her -99% :-)- there is a good reason).
Both of those statements are wrong. If she's looking for someone to talk with, she should find that guy- whether it's you or someone else. Communication is a HUGE part of relationships that is undervalued.
- And furthermore, why do you only believe her 99% ? If you're with someone, I would hope they wouldn't cheat on any. Yes it doesn't eliminate all belief, but in a generalized sence, you're basically admiting to a feeling she cheated on you. If you feel that way, why are you with her?
My opinion, is that the whole phone-records thing.. That was an invasion of privacy. You're not married and it wasn't a smart move. Granted, it led to something of interest, where the evidence was against her (that she was talking to someone else)... Regardless... Move on dude.
I called it from the start, and still after reading, I'll stick to that decision.
This friend wanted to sleep with her. That is for sure. She's most likely telling the truth about nothing happening between them, but the fact that she kept it from you says to me that there was some feelings there and she was keeping this guy in her back pocket. Especially since she already has a male friend that you know about. So that suggest that things were more emotional serious with this guy.
Your relationship is completely salvageable, but I think before you need to ask her why the secrecy? Not so you can make up your mind if you want to stay with her or not, but just so you can know why and maybe even adjust some things about you so that this doesn't happen again.
Then if you forgive her, don't dwell on it and hold it over her head. Move on and work on relationship from the point you're at now.
You can't have a serious relationship without trust. So you have to decide if you can move past this and trust her again. If not, then it's time to end the relationship.
Also, if you're going to stay with her then you have to forgive her for what she's done. You can't keep throwing this incident in her face every time you have an argument or you want to get your way. She will get tired of you playing that card and leave you. So if you can't promise to forgive her, then it's time to end the relationship.
I was in a relationship very similar to yours (though not as long) where the girl felt I did not convey I liked her or wanted to be with her "enough" and she also started talking with a male "friend". Long story short she cheated and left me for him. Looking back I was naive and didn't want to believe all the red flags along the way. I'm not saying that has/will happen to you, just what my experience was.
