Need some advice
I've been dating a girl for 8 months now. We both have children from past relationships (me from my first and only marriage and her from a boyfriend a long time ago).
Things have been good, most of the time. She left an old boyfriend to see me (I didn't know they were still together at the time) when we first started up and there was a point in the middle of our 8 months that she got back involved with him. It came out and she begged me for another chance.
Now, I was told over the weekend, that she had told some friends that she was going to break it off with me to try and get back with that ex-boyfriend of hers. The people that told me are friends with her ex and I'm sure would love to see their friend happy again. They also told me some of the details on what took place in the middle of our 8 months between them.
Things have seemed to be great again, now we are where we are. Again, I was told that she was going to break up and everything... but my girlfriend denies it. She said that they were trying to get us broken up so her and her ex would get back together (again, they were all friends at one point) and that she loves me and wants to spend the rest of her life with me.
She tells me that if she would have called it off with me, she would have done it when I gave her the chance to break it off before and that she wouldn't break up with me because she wanted to get married some day, etc.
So now I'm sitting here wondering who I believe on this. Like I said, she denies it but her so-so friends of theirs (or was friends of theirs when together) are telling me otherwise.
Who should I believe? If she tells me that she doesn't want to end it and wants to stay with me, should I just flat out believe her? Again, these people told me what happened before with her and her ex-BF. Should I believe her claim that they just want us broken up?
Hopefully someone has gone through the same type of thing before here and has some thoughts on this. I wish life was just easy and I didn't have to worry about this kind of Jerry Springer crap.
