Linda, the reason you didn't see the truth of things sooner is because he didn't want you to. You were just another iron in his fire, so to speak. Definitely, the fact that you are divorced with a child would cause him to not take the relationship seriously. I'm sorry this happened to you, but hardly surprised. Try not to beat yourself up about it. I know, easier said than done, it was shitty how he treated you, but really, be glad you're rid of him now. Would you want a man who thinks it's okay to behave this way towards a woman? Look at it as though he did you a favor, because that's what he did. Now you are free to find a good man, instead of the pathetic excuse for a man that he is.
