Feeling stupid is something most of us can relate to because these men are master manipulators. I want you to know that you did nothing wrong, you gave your heart to someone you believed was real. We have big hearts and the desire to find love and they prey on us knowing that. They look for vulnerabilities in us and try to fill those holes, gain our trust and exploit us. It is easy for people on the outside to judge us and make fun of us and call us stupid since they haven't been through it and they won't be as understanding about it. So far I haven't shared my experience with anyone other than on these forums because I also felt ashamed.

You are fortunate that you got out of it when you did, as I mentioned I know that wasn't easy. Do you have children with him? (hope you don't mind me asking)They are like an addiction, I fell into such despair at first when I made the decision to end things and couldn't figure out why I felt so empty. It's like a spell or black magic or something. Fortunately knowing others experienced the same helped a bit. The bad thing is that mine continues to stalk me no matter how many times I block him it's ridiculous.It seems that they don't know what normal is.

Just know we all understand and we are here for you. Keep coming here, you can help others with your experience and by spreading the word.These men will not prosper, not with karma around. You will get through this just hang in there.
