I agree, time. Time and a lot of company. Save your love for your kids. They are all that matters now. If your heart is open, you will find love ...real love and the last love you thought you had, will seem like a distant memory. Hang in there!
Alpha males don't manipulate or lie. That would hinder their alpha status Awesomely honest and reproductively desirable This guy sounds like the envious sub-alpha male who lied and cheated to get into someone's pants because on his own merits and personality he would never stand a chance.
Time... trust me you'll find someone that will love and appreciate you just the way you are! It's important to remember that his failure to give you the love you deserve is NOT your fault... it's not any kind of failure on your part... try to view this as an opportunity to find the love of your life and not as a loss.
