Things I surprisingly let my ex get away with

All Woman

NO partner or relationship is perfect, and so there are some things that people will ignore, learn to live with, or compromise on because of this knowledge. But while it is OK to compromise, there are some things that you should never allow your girlfriend or boyfriend to get away with, as the people below learnt.

Alexia G, 23:

My ex cheated, and I turned a blind eye to it. I was young and stupid and thought it was only once. But he continued and I still didn't do anything. He eventually left me and married the girl.

Britani L, 25:

I allowed him to use me however it pleased him. So I wouldn't hear from him for an entire day until he wanted something or wanted me to do something.

Dane N, 30:

She used to take money from my wallet without permission and I never stopped her.

Jameelia H, 24:

I was sick and had no one else to help me. At the hospital I gave him my bank card to withdraw some cash. I sent him for $3,000, and he withdrew $10,000. Luckily it wasn't the account I used to save money.

Francine P, 32:

He dissed me in front of his friends at his family's get-together, and I didn't say anything to him about it.

Kirk B, 40:

She used to flirt a lot, even when I was with her.

Dave H, 52:

She was abusive — always verbal and sometimes even physical. She would snap for the smallest thing: If I forgot to get bread at the supermarket or to pick the clothes up from the line it would be hell and powderhouse. I was in that situation for 15 years, and I wasn't even the one to leave. She left me, and then, after mourning for a while, I wondered if I was stupid for dealing with that for so long.
