I caught my partner of 5 years with a dating app on his phone on Friday night. I confronted him about it on the Saturday. He told me that it was a bit of banter at work that started with a fake profile of a work mate who they are always winding up. The work mate who is working with that day actually has an account on it because his single obviousl lol! They were having a laugh saying stuff like "you cringe" & his work mate said something like you stand a chance on . my boyfriend being the competitive type accepted this as a challenge. He admitted he was a dickhead for doing it & was crying as he told me all of that. He even said he'd show me the conversation, which I declined. And went on to say that he has been planning to propose to me & has been ring shopping for a few monts. he added that he knows that isn't relevant but he loves me so much that the thought of not being with me is one he never wants to think about & even if I split up with him which he said he didn't blame me if I did, there would be noway he could ever stop loving me or move on.
From a guy's point of view does this seem genuie? I have obviously lost some trust with him & I feel very insecure. Advice please

From a girl's point of view, he really does sound genuine, and if there weren't any other red flags he's probably telling you the truth. Still, you have every right to be hurt and it's completely understandable that you're feeling insecure. Did you tell him that? He made a mistake, a silly, stupid mistake, but from all of this it sounds like he's aware of that and genuinely feels sorry.0
