Perhaps you know this story yourself...
Friends have been together for 13 years. (have known them for 10 years). While other friends seem to be stuck in an infinite loop of breakups, makeups, breakdowns and shakedowns, these two have powered on.
This year has been an interesting one, as I've noticed one of them has said something things that seem odd.
... dates not adding up.. knowing people for longer than previously thought..
Not major stuff but enough to get me thinking about what had been said over the previous decade.
Not to go into specifics, but it turns out that one of them had been lying about stuff for our whole friendship. Not stuff that is inherently terrible, but as with all lies, it is build on other lies.
I confronted the other partner about it who told me he didn't find out about this particular lie until years into their relationship and, not only that, there had been even more about who this person is/was.
A relationship nesting on lies and manipulation.
So that gets me to my rather jaded but realistic point.
Every gay relationship I know has ended in cheating, lies , manipulation, financial ruin etc..
