And so is his self-esteem, now. One: if that was the first time meeting the parents, they weren't together that long. And two: the wording makes it seem like the girfriend told her parents that both parties were well aware of the situation. Much more information is needed with this one.
I think that #23 is implying that people who are not in a serious relationship may not have exclusive dating arrangements. She may be less serious about the relationship than OP and is exploring her options. Her family may be aware of this, but it's still a dick move of the dad to put it out there like that.
This isn't just daddy's fault. OP's girlfriend in this is much more of a dick than her father. Actually, her father probably made things better in the long run so OP won't have to worry about a possible divorce (if OP wanted a serious relationship, I hope he did).
She made the mistake, they got past it and he forgave her and gave her a second chance. This is entirely the dad being a jerk; its not her fault that he said that after everything had been settled, there's no way for her to control what her dad says. I agree with other people here who are saying it sounds like she thought it was casual and he did not. No one flaunts the fact they're cheating I front of other people, especially their parents. So it seems like she was dating them both, thinking it was okay. Once she found out it wasn't and op was upset, she stopped. Then ops dad, not having tact but also probably not realising op had fought with his gf about exclusivity, said what he said. I know this jumps to a lot of conclusions but people don't tend to be complete jerks out of the blue... people are complicated and motivated beings and to think that when someone fucks up that they're just horrible people is a lonely way to live. I think ops gf needs to confront her dad about what he said and then it should be let go. They got past their problems, there's no need for it to escalate when ops gf hasnt done anything again. After all, that's what a second chance is for, right?
Wow, that means that they first met the other guy first before she introduced her actual boyfriend, that's a really low action OP. I would be careful if I were you !
Why would you give her a second chance? Sorry OP, but your girlfriend (ex I hope) is a cheating whore.
