He doesn't know I have been with someone for 5 yrs and have a kid
I have been in a relationship with a guy for 5 yrs now. The past 2 years have been DEAD. It is to the point i do not want to hear his voice most of the time because it makes my skin crawl. He just told me the other day that he would "probably kill me" if I tried to leave him. Now the thing that complicates this even more is that we have a 4 year old together. I want out but have no one. And I do not know if he would or would not follow through with his threat or at least attempt to hurt me.
I have started talking to another guy. And I have fallen in love with him. He does not know about my current situation or that I have a child. I really want to be with this guy but I think he may want to have nothing to do with me if I told him. But if I do not tell him I will never know if he would have wanted to be with me despite my huge horrible lie. I know some people are going to be like "how can you love a person you have never met. maybe he lied just as much as you have" This is THE only thing I have lied to him about. He knows more about me and my past than the guy i've been with for 5 years.
Any advice? What would you do if you were in his situation and found this out?
