I was in class 10 when I first met him. He was new to our class.But we could immediately sense that there was something between us.
He was smart and talked very well with girls.
At the end of the session, one of my friends told him that I loved him. He too was interested in me. It took us one month to get into a relationship. My best friend told me that he was in another relationship too but later on she encouraged me to forge a bond with him.
He would come to our house and spend time with me whenever I went for my tuition classes. He kissed me for the first time after a couple of weeks. He shared a good relationship with my parents too. But it didn’t take long for my parents to know that we shared a close relationship.
Our parents were totally fine with the fact that we shared a great rapport but they wanted us to concentrate on our studies first.
My father was posted to Assam after I finished my 10th standard and he moved to Hyderabad to pursue his higher studies. But we still managed to continue our relationship. I scored quite well in my 10th standard but over a period of time, my performance started dipping.
My parents now asked him not to call me till I started performing well again. But I continued to keep in touch with him.
After my 12th standard, I decided to go to Bhubaneshwar for my graduation but he wanted me to study with him in Chandigarh. My parents decided to send me to Bhubaneshwar. He would come and meet me quite often at Bhubaneshwar.
We had intercourse for the first time when he came over to Bhubaneshwar to meet me. After that, he decided to study with me. I was excited because I could be with him all through the day and night.
I left my hostel so that I could spend more time with him.
Slowly I got to know that he was talking with other girls on his phone. He would never show me his phone and whenever he got a call he would start acting weirdly. I didn't pay any attention to all this initially but later on, it started bothering me.
One day I decided to check his phone without his knowledge. I got to know that he talked with different girls quite frequently and he had photographs of several girls on his laptop.
When I asked him about it, he told me that he talked to them because they were his friends. He said they were all his family friends. We started fighting about his every day.
One fine day I gathered the courage to talk with one of the girls personally. I found out that they had been in a relationship for the past three years. I now realized that he had been cheating on me.
I spoke with him and then broke up with him. But he apologized to me and I thought I should forgive him. But within 3-4 months I got to know that he was cheating on me again. He was with the same girl even now. We started fighting again when I confronted him.
This time he beat me up because he wanted me to stay with him.
When I was in my final year I got to know that he was still in contact with that girl and that she too lived in Bhubaneshwar. I started getting depressed when I heard this. I had loved him with my whole heart but I knew he still went out with that girl. I was in a dilemma now because I did not know whether to trust him and be with him or break up with him.
I went to the extent of telling his mother about all that he was doing to me. But she did not really take any strict action against him. She just asked me to break up with him.
In the midst of all this chaos, I got a message on Instagram from his cousin sister. She was asking me about him. She wanted to know how I had come to know him. I told her my whole story. She then asked me how I had come to know about her.
I said, “He told me that you were her cousin and you knew about our relationship.” Her next statement changed my life totally. She told me that she was not his cousin. She said that she was his girlfriend and they had been in a relationship with each other for the past 5 years.
She said she was studying in Delhi and he had also had sex with her. She then told me her whole story. I now knew that I would never be able to trust anyone in my life. I wonder how a person can destroy a 7-year-old relationship and backstab someone so many times. I simply can't love anyone else now. Not anymore.
