No, she does understand what builds a good relationship. She tells me that when he is with her, he is a "completely different person", lovely and caring, basically not the person her friends, family and other people who know him see him as. And that, that is keeping her from dumping him. I don't know what I can do to make her realize that just because he acts nice infront of her, doesnt mean that is what he is really like.
It’s difficult for people in her situation because she is only seeing what he is like in front of her. Sadly enough, there isn’t much you can do. Just be there and help her through it. The truth will come out and he will slip up in his little game and fail. Don’t worry love! He can’t have his cake and eat it to. Cheaters never win!
Laura is 17, Keanu, the cheating dirtbag will be 17 in a few months. They have been dating for over two years, October was their two year anniversary. Laura is most definitely not naive. I have been supporting her, I have been supporting her since February 2010, since the start of his antics, he wasn't cheating on her then, but he was doing other things. Her pushing the thoughts to the back of her mind shows she wants to continue on ignoring it..
She is still a tad naive. Because a relationship consists of trust, love, and communication.. Among other things. But you get the general idea. If she understood this, she wouldn’t be with him. Because what he is doing is disrespectful to say the least! One day she will realize this. Believe me, I’ve been in her situation.
