  • You must have suspected something, or you didn't trusted your Boyfriend other wise why would you "snoop, show up unexpectedly "?

    That was red flag sign of a bad relationship. You can't really have a relationship with someone you don't trust.

    To answer your question. Why did he do it?

    Well this thing has been going on for a long time. 9 years, started before he meet you, and little doubt continues after you. The fact that he hasn't settled down with her, and indeed no one else has kinda suggests the lass is a weirdo/nut case. Would you be happy to be the other woman. 9 years of being a bit on the side? clearly she is.

    He has some connection/history with the lass, that is unhealthy or detrimental to his life. Eg he lost you, his girl friend because of this obsession. What does he get out of it? list of possible reasons-

    -excitement, maybe he likes cheating, he gets a rush from sneaking around

    -the lass is a fruit cake and he kinda feels emotional responsible for her. i.e. she says she will kill herself if he doesn't see her.

    -escape, we all like to get away every so ofter, the ultimate break is a secret life

    -maybe she is his perfect women, but he just can't live with her

    -maybe its really good sex

    -its Freudian, she reminds him of his mother

    etc, etc

    the truth is your ex probably doesn't know himself. The only way you'll know for sure is if you have a magic telescope that looks inside ex boyfriend heads. Outside of that you just have the accept that you will never know and just need to move on.
