Most Helpful Guy
I believe that people can deserve a second chance, but not everyone. In your boyfriend's case, no he does not deserve a second chance. Drop him and move onto a real man.

While there are some situations where forgiveness and granting a second chance are a good idea, there are many situations where it’s not and it never will be no matter how much faith you have in that person. The situation you describe fits into the second category.
It would be an absolute disservice to yourself to give this guy a second chance because he’s undeniably trouble. Based on the description you’ve given, he’s selfish, shady, small-minded, self-absorbed, and manipulative. Correct me if I’m wrong, but he basically put you through a sh*tty, mediocre relationship and now that you’re being strong/realizing you deserve a better man, he wants to pretend that he has his act right? LOL uhhhm no. It takes more than a week to get your act together. Girl, this guy is trouble and you should stay away from him if you want to live a life of happiness and positivity. Players are a different case: they learn through loss. Yet even then, sometimes they don’t learn. You cannot change a player, a player must change themselves otherwise you’ll just get hurt in the process of their f*cked up games.
