Dating a married man blog
Ask any heartbroken partner from a relationship split apart due to infidelity: Affairs can be bad news.
That being said, they’re also hella complicated, yet often blamed on the evil “home-wrecking” woman, who surely must be out to steal someone’s man and cause as much damage as possible.
After we broke up, he tried to repair things with his wife, and that didn't work, and I think he realized very quickly that no sane woman would deal with his enormous ego for how little he gives in return.
I can't stand him, and he's nothing but a constant reminder of all the mistakes I made and how low my self-esteem was at the time to have put up with him for so long." Six years after graduating high school, I had an affair with my former gym teacher.
I trusted him when he said that their relationship was 'monogamish' so I never felt like I was a home-wrecker per se, but I did carry around guilt about the decision he made to keep it hidden from his wife.
When he eventually told her, it turned out she wasn’t OK with it. He has told me not to message or contact him again, and I haven’t seen him since. I still carry a lot of guilt about it all, although I’m currently in a committed monogamous relationship with a man who is not married and am super happy.
He almost backhanded me in the face once during a disagreement, but I blocked him, and then he started crying.
Situations are a lot more nuanced than they appear to be.
I was drawn to him because he was super funny, cool, stylish, sweet, generous, kind, caring, creative, and artistic, not to mention quirky and adventurous.
There was obviously chemistry, but I was a little uncomfortable at first about him being married, which continued into our relationship.
Sure, some people in the world don’t have the best intentions, but I do believe they are few and far between. He's also 10 years older than me, which made me look up to him.
I think these women, myself included, truly believe that they can make this work without anyone getting hurt and they truly do care not only for the husband but also his family. At work, he gave me praise on my performances, which made me feel validated in my role and made me feel more competent. Our relationship went from mentor to friend to lover.
