#1 If you didn't want to break up a family you shouldn't have knowingly been a side chick.
She's just lucky that he didn't leave them for her.
#2 If you want to publicly acknowledge your relationship with gifts and such, why not just get your own relationship that you don't have to hide?
You could but him all the gifts you want if you just had your own man.
#3 It does suck to be deceived.
You shouldn't beat yourself up over it. If the man lied to you he isn't worth your time.
#4 This girl is a professional side chick.
I bet she has a schedule set up around these dudes so she can see them all.
#5 Some people choose to be side chicks because they think they can make him choose them.
What they should realize is that even if he chooses you, he's just going to cheat on you with someone else.
