That's horrible- I hope you find someone better who will treat you right and deserve you. Until then, just focus on moving on and making yourself happy. It will get better, I promise.

As much as this sucks and hurts like hell right now, he's shown his true colors. (they read: MAJOR ASSHOLE) This is an opportunity to find someone who will actually love and respect you- good luck!

You would expect someone, even in times like this, would be caring and mature. Some people. Sorry OP, he sounds like a d-bag. FYL

The root cause may just be falling out of love. People change, some more than others, and sometimes the changes lead to different feelings. Maybe it was a gradual decrease in interest so OP never noticed. Either way, though, he acted thoughtlessly and cruelly and he should have at least shown a miniscule amount of care to OP

You can be honest and still have compassion. For example, by not telling your partner to shut up after making her cry.

People who pride themselves on their brutal honesty usually put more emphasis on the brutality than the honesty. Candor isn't an excuse to pointlessly hurt people, much less people who may still love you even if you no longer love them.

I really don't know why "I am so sorry" is getting down voted. I agree with #6, sorry OP. There are people out there who would try to always make you smile and hate themselves for even making you cry. You deserve better.

Some people don't know what else to say and apparently aren't as poetic with words as some others. Doesn't mean "I am so sorry" isn't any less sympathetic than a long spew of words. To OP, your husband sounds like my ex. It'll get better, it'll just take some time.

#49 - Yeah, that's the joke. People who know me know that I tend to ramble on and on about anything as long as there's a point to make.

@35 - I know that personally when I'm down I don't want some to give me a fucking massive dissertation on on why my life sucks or why they're sorry. I'm sorry is perfect. When someone dies and I go to their funeral I say "I'm sorry for your loss/my condolences". Maybe something a little more personal of I were close to them. Theres nothing empty about their comment. what the hell else are they supposed to say? We don't know the OP personally. We don't know the whole situation. I'm sure

#35: I think it qualifies as "shitposting". You know what they say - "If you don't have anything smart or original to say, it's best not to say anything at all"...

#35, depression might be behind the apathy of his feelings, but it does not cause or justify the cruelty with how he's broken the news to his wife.

It's not necessarily shitposting because it contributes very lightly toward the OP's mentality. It gives a face and name to the many people who say "FYL". However, "I'm so sorry" is just so bland. There's no encouragement, nothing distinct or special about it, it's bare minimum. Obviously it's going to accumulate likes over time because it's not a terrible comment, but regulars bury it initially because to them it looks lazy.

#125: "Bare minimum" is exactly my point. It's just a notch above "first" and "lol". The reason it's accumulating points is precisely the simplicity coupled with lack of controversy. Since the posts aren't graded on any scale besides + and -, the safest bet is to make a short post that will have very little for people to object to, while having SOMETHING very basic that they will feel in agreement with. Will they agree with this short post more than disagree? Hell y

#159 maybe #6 doesn't care about upvotes or downvotes. maybe just maybe she commented on the op's FML because she simply wanted to say sorry?

Reply

#173: I'm not saying #6 cares, I am simply saying it works and marveling at the curious effort-to-upvote function ;P.

It will be okay and I hope you have a good support system to back you up in this time of need. He's an asshole, don't give him another thought because you are beautiful and you can do much better than him. Okay?

Fyl that you had to go through a wedding before he decided to leave. You deserve better. best of luck getting through this!
