Woman puzzled at partner’s “romantic” text message in which he admitted he loved others more


After her husband of almost 10 years sent her a “romantic” message, a woman turned to the internet to get some help. It ended up being quite hurtful.

You can make your significant other laugh by chatting with them.

One woman was confused after she received a text message from her partner in which he revealed something quite unexpected that completely changed her view of him.

She was able to MumsnetTo ask if people think she is being unreasonable for reacting badly to a message from her partner.

She wrote: “My partner and I have been together on and off for nearly 10 years and we have a nine-year-old daughter. He works away in hospitality and comes back to me and my daughter when he gets days off. I woke during the early hours and found this message he had sent, all lovely until I read the part when he said he had loved others more!

“I thought what the actual f**k, why would you even need to say that to me? Is it okay to leave some things unsaid? He’s meant to be coming back late tonight for three days but now I feel like telling him to f**k off and don’t bother!

“Am I overreacting to this message? I feel like I’m second, third or even fourth best now and don’t think I will ever be able to get that comment out of my head.

“Even though I feel in my past that I loved others more than he, I wouldn’t say it to him. I don’t think it is necessary. I would like to hear other opinions and what they feel about this.”

The message itself started very nicely saying he loves her with all his heart, but he started to stumble when he admitted ‘although, I’ve loved others more.’

Other people jumped to her defence saying they’d feel the exact same if they were in her shoes.

One wrote: “Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! He would never say that.

“Yeah that wouldn’t make me feel very good to be honest. Kinda like, the girls I liked/loved more , didn’t want me so you’re the best I got. Very strange!”

Someone else said it: “It’s a f**king strange message. The fact that he says ‘right now’ implies he’s okay to love someone else in future, that he doesn’t see you as a long term relationship. He’s not committed to you, sorry.”

“What a charmer. Not”, a different user quipped.

“It’s self-indulgent, poorly-written nonsense. I wouldn’t want a relationship with someone who came out with this kind of rubbish”One fumed.

Someone who thought that the message was a joke wrote: “The more I read it the more I cringe.”
