To make a long story short I have been dating my b/f for nearly a year. This past weekend we had our first sex, which was not great. He could not stay firm shall we say. Even took Viagra but to no avail. I'm like it's OK don't worry about it. I've never had great physical chemistry with him but have great emotional connection.
Tuesday for whatever reason I decided maybe our to curiosity is this guy still out on the dating site. Well, not only was his profile active he was online.
So... I emailed him and said Im taking a break from "us" because of this and my broken trust.
He has a full blown panic attack and is calling, messaging etc and really scaring the hell out of me. I never answered any of the calls and then once he gets it together he sends me this long apology letter/email saying he deleted it etc I go out and he is still on there and active again!!! Do men think we are that dumb?
His irrational behavior really reminded me of my late ex husband and I thought I don't need that again!

Some men are "players" and unfortunately for you, he's one. You definitely deserve better.

Get rid immediately! If his messages scare the hell out of you then that is your warning , take care , block him , move on. Be careful and you know you deserve better.

As much as I usually distrust the 'Dump Him!' brigade (it seems to be a knee jerk reaction to any relationship problems), the continuing online presence would be too much for me. He's clearly keeping his options open. Thing is, there are lots more single older women around than men, so easy pickings.

Maybe don't be an easy pick.

As much as I would like to overlook his error in judgement, it's impossible to do that. My trust was totally broken and like a nice piece of broken china it can't be repaired ):
