Don’t pine, don’t blow up his phone and don’t call his wife or family.
If we’re being honest though, at the end of the day, the heart wants what it wants, and if it so decides that it’s a married man, it would be near impossible to talk it out of it.
Apart from the whole marriage thing, your relationship with Mr.
Right Now is progressing swimmingly in your little adulterous Camelot until you’re overwhelmed by the unexpected presence of three guests: guilt, shame, and humiliation. Hey, he’s wining and dining you, buying clothes and jewelry, paying a bill or two (maybe even the mortgage). It’s all good though because fair exchange is no robbery.
I’m here to tell you to ignore those feelings and the impulse to call him and tell him it’s over. After all, you don’t deserve a loving man of your own. Just be thankful you can’t put a price tag on character.
Frankly, your conscience is as stupid as your heart and knows not the sacrifice it’s asking you to make. Let’s face it, nothing says “I hate me” more than to willingly accept the second-class stepchild status you’ll be relegated to for the entirety of your relationship with this man. Better to enjoy the short end of the stick than have no stick at all, even if it means destroying a family a tiny little bit.
It is bad enough that you’re already sleeping with HER man and causing her some level of pain.
