It took me a long time to get over my ex who cheated on me. I feel like a part of me still wants him and I hate that I do.

I had never been taken care of before the way he took care of me, and I have to admit this new lifestyle with him was new and exciting. I loved it, and I loved him. I would drop anything I was...
