My partner and I have been together on and off for nearly 10 years and we have a 9 year old daughter.He works away in hospitality and comes back to me and my daughter when he gets days off.I woke during the early hours and found this message he had sent,all lovely until I read the part when he said he had loved others more!,I thought WTAF??,why would you even need to say that to me?,are some things best left unsaid??.He's meant to be coming back late tonight for 3 days but now I feel like telling him to fuck off and don't bother!.Am I overreacting to this message?,I feel like I'm second,third or even fourth best now and don't think I will ever be able to get that comment out of my head.
Even if I felt in my past I had loved others more than I do him,I would never say that to him as I don't feel it needs to be said!.
I would love others opinions on this and how they would feel if their partner sent them this message.

WTF?! If I received that message I would most likely end the relationship. How bizarre.

It’s a fucking strange message. The fact that he says “right now” implies he’s okay to love someone else in future, that he doesn’t see you as a long term relationship.

He’s not committed to you, sorry.

No your not over reacting, he’s either quite full of himself or negging you or both. I’d reevaluate the relationship.

I think it depends on the context of the conversation. It sounds like he’s being entirely honest. What went before to get this reply ?

It’s the right now part that’s the killer really. Just now, but only because it’s your whose available “right now”

dump him

Is he drunk? I wouldn't want to see him either

It's self-indulgent, poorly-written nonsense. I wouldn't want a relationship with someone who came out with this kind of rubbish.

Might he have been drunk at the time?

Awful message in so many ways!

So you and he live together? Do you have children together?

It's the "I don't love anyone more than you - right now".

Do yourself a massive favour and fuck him off, he's a twat.

Sorry but that message sounds as if he is/has or intends to cheat.
Not what you want to hear but the other thing is the way he keeps saying "right now " to me says if someone else comes along that he loves more than you he will leave you for them

When DH and I first got together he went away to a conference, and rang me up very drunk saying Sibérie asked him for a shag and he said no.

I think he was trying to show he was committed in his own, weird way. Men are strange.

He had just finished work so yes he would have had a drink most likely.There was no message previous apart from a few hours earlier which was just a normal chatty message about work,our daughter etc.I just don't get why he would feel the need to say that?.I also honed in on the 'right now' part too.

I wouldn't know what to make of that but it was sent shortly after midnight, is it possible he'd been drinking and screwed up. It's all very confused. He's quite unnecessarily telling you about an unrequited love and he loves you more than anyone else RIGHT NOW but he hopes you'll grow old together. I'd be tempted to ask him what he was hoping to achieve.

What a bizarre message. You're not being unreasonable to be upset. He's negging you!

Has he had a previous relationship and she's died or something? It all just seems a bit much to start bringing someone else into it!

Must admit that but annoyed me more than the arsehole message!

I also noticed the loved others more and right now.

Odd message to just send someone.
