Relationship advice A little background, I am a 27 year old single mom. My child's father has never been around, and I was single for the last 5 years until I met this guy. We fell in love instantly and my daughter loved him. He was what I felt was always missing. Things changed quick, we broke up for a week bc of me adding one of his friends on Facebook. We never really even tried to trust each other. Things got bad quickly, I felt like I Was always being accused when I did nothing wrong. He didn't even have a job until 2 weeks before our breakup but I loved him so I wanted it to work. My daughter was very jealous of him and she started acting out and said she wanted him to leave, and we ended up getting into another huge fight because of a Facebook post and he wanted to leave but I begged him to stay.

A month prior I had got tested for stds because I had a yeast infection and he said he felt like he was burning. I didn't get the call about the results for a couple weeks, and they called when we were at a friends house and told me I tested positive for HSV2. I didn't know how to tell him so I didn't, until the big fight after my daughter said she wanted to leave. He was disgusted with me, and the next day he left. We haven't talked much since and it's been 10 days. I brought him his stuff today and I asked him if he missed me and he said no and basically told me that the relationship is over for good. He was supposed to give me money to help with the damages he did to my car, but spent his whole check except $40. He has a history of substance abuse and I feel like I devastated him, and now we are both self destructing. How do I fix this

Sorry if this seems harsh but sounds to me that this isn’t worth fixing. He doesn’t support you emotionally and accuses you of things you haven’t done. He is clearly jealous and has trust issues and ,like you said’ you haven’t tried to trust one another. You say you love him but you have to put your daughter first. This is clearly a toxic relationship.

With regards to the herpes, when did you first notice symptoms? Was it after you got together with him? If you haven’t been unfaithful then it’s likely he gave it to you, which would explain his reaction.

I'd like to know whether it was him who gave you the Herpes as well, CP.
