My addict partner with PIED and I are in a rut and it's because he will not own how seriously his lies have harmed our relationship and he is constantly looking for a reason to blame me to justify his behavior. He says he is sorry but he does not mean it he still thinks I deserved it. What is so perplexing is that he was lying to me and using porn from the first day we met. So how any actions I did could have caused it makes no sense. He has gone to two counselors. The first one he told me told him that the porn was not a problem for him. But it was since after a month of stopping his PIED significantly improved. The second counselor he went to he alleged said to him that the DE was no big deal and it was due to distraction during sex not porn, and that the reason we were having problems was me being needy nothing he did and that because I am so needy she recommended that he end the relationship now mind you this is on the first visit that she allegedly made a pronouncement that he should leave me. I don't believe this for a second and even if she did say that it was because as he normally does he skewed the facts and rewrote history. But I'm open to working on myself so I asked him to tell me what it was that I did that was needy so I could work on it. Now I admit I may have been slightly more needy since I discovered his lies but I think that's understandable. He of course does not. His answer was that I expected him to call me when he was away on travel for ten minutes a day and he really wanted to go to the gym instead and that I asked him to text me when I woke up and one time when he forgot I got mad. Now in 12 months he has forgotten to text me about 30 times and I did not get mad 29 out of 30 times but he remembers that one time that I did? He also forgets the 100 times that he told me porn was harming our sex life and he was not doing it anymore. He seriously with a straight face looked at me and said he did not remember agreeing to that so he did not know he was lying! Then he started launching into how I left his jacket in an Uber once 10 months ago and how horrible that was. The funny thing is that's not what happened at all. He left it in the Uber he was holding it but because he said I should have been looking out for his stuff and was not it was my fault. When I met him he told me his divorce was 100% his ex wives fault which was always a bit of a red flag to me. I mean divorces are never 100% anyone's fault and that when they went to counseling the counselor told her in the first visit that everything was her fault and she was acting childish. Does anyone else here see a pattern? He blames his friend for talking him into buying a used car that is crap which he never should have bought in the first place and he made the decision. He blames his boss for not getting a raise, his sister for their strained relationship, the neighbors for his property value going down and I cannot believe I did not see beforehand why now he blames me for his mistakes. I don't know if there is some mental health issue going on here or what. But he will not accept responsibility. Every conversation ends with him somehow blaming me for what he did! If I caused him to look at porn and lie how is it he was doing that from day 1? I guess I don't need any answers from you all just wanted to vent and try to figure out what would cause this type of behavior?
