It sounds like Patty has been doing exactly what she wants to do all along- think of her own needs and no one else. All of the games she played all point to the fact that she was in all of this to take for herself and not really to have a decent relationship.
People who do these kinds of things know how to manipulate. They say just the right thing at the right time to get what they want, but they make it seem that they are normal, just wanting to be with you and nothing else. It's hard to spot what they are doing unless you have been on the receiving of it enough times.
It was only a matter of time before she was caught. It seems she was very good at this game but at some point, it probably got to be too much to keep up with. Lying to several people and juggling all the relationships at one time is more than one person can do. The fact that you caught her is good. You get to see the proof right there of what she is about. And it helps you to put an end to this relationship once and for all.
I'm glad to hear that you are moving on. Patty seemed like she was only out to hurt you. Going back to your wife is a good move. You can take the energy you spent on Patty and put it back into your relationship with a woman that treats you well.
You're welcome, Bart! I am glad to hear that you are feeling better. It's good you are moving on and leaving the toxic situation you had with Patty behind.
My best to you!
