I am from Ahmedabad and an MBA student. I need your guidance. I was in a relationship with a guy and everything was going good. Our relationship became a long distance one after he moved to Lucknow. After a few months he started ignoring me and after I asked him what was wrong he blocked me on Social Media and on his phone. Then I found out he left me for another girl.
He Left Me For Another Girl
After sometime I got to know that he was in a relationship with a Muslim girl who lives in Lucknow. I was totally shattered after knowing this and I called him to know why he was doing this with me? I always thought we were madly in love with each other and I could not fathom why he left me. I could not come to terms with the truth that he actually left me for another girl.

He verbally abused me
He started abusing me and he called me a characterless girl and said I deserved this kind of behavior from him. I was so shocked I disconnected the phone. As such it was hard to accept that he left me for another woman on top of that he started abusing me over the phone. It took me days to recover from this shock.
He was back in six months
After 6 months he came back to me and said he was very guilty for what he did and asked me for forgiveness. And he said he promised this would never happen again. He was like the person I always knew loving and caring and he said I should completely forget about those 6 months. He seemed sincere in his pleas.
Should I get back with him?
Please guide me what should I do now? I know he left me for another girl but can I give him a second chance? Or should I end my relationship with him?
