In A Relationship But Falling In Love With Someone ElseYou may not have set out to fall in love with a married man, but there are times in life when even the most intelligent women find their emotions getting the better of them. Loving and dating a married man can be extremely painful and seldom works out well. But this article is not intended to judge anyone or tell you to "just dump him! How many men do you know who are ruining their lives because of a woman? Now, how many women do you know who have sacrificed all for a man?
I periodically would ask him if he was feeling tempted or had fallen to it and he would always say no. When i was just early pregnant with our second child they are three years apart i caught him looking at it. It was a mess for a minute but he was apologetic and we went to therapy. Things seemed better. I slowly was regaining trust in him. About a year later my four year old son opened the bathroom door and i was right behind him catching my husband in what he claims was live porn chat.
I was devastated and so angry. I threatened to leave. He was again so remorseful, this time did counseling by himself. Supposedly finally conquered it. About two years later he confessed to me only because his name was going to be printed in the local paper along with all other customers names that he had visited an asian sauna that got busted for prostitution.
He claims to this day that he went for an actual back massage and thats all he got, even tho the police report said there was no actual massage therapy equipment in the place and that no person was going There for legitimate massage treatments. I have stayed because of two reasons and two only. My babies.
They love their daddy very much and our family unit. Also i struggle with feeling that it is a sin as a christian to divorce. Over the years my ex and i have communicated briefly…never seeing one another. Its always stayed platonic but i always knew it was dangerous territory as we both had unspoken, unresolved feelings. I then cut off all communication out of respect for my husband. For a coulple of years. But ove the years i go through times of missing our connection so deeply it pains me-its something my husband and i have simply never had.
Husband and i are farther apart than ever…essentially just co parents…and i had a dream about my ex the other night. I have had MANY over the years but i was so struck by this one, likely because of my own marital and personal issues i have lost myself entirely in my marriage and parenthood that i didnt want to wake up.
I contacted him and told him about it. Every detail of our past. How hes always loved me, waited for me, our connections, on and on…emotional issues, why we broke up issues, my marital issues, and umtimately sexual talk that ended in very graphic pictures and talk sexting. It awoke in me so much i didnt even realize was still there. I didn think i was even capable of feeling. Now i am more confused than i have ever been in 16 years. I told my husband about some of the conversation…obviously not the worst of it…and the worst part is how calm, understanding and sad and regretful he is for his own part.
I feel so lost. Thank you for reaching out to us. We understand how pornography can have detrimental effects on marriage. Please call us at so we can help you! My husband and I have been married only a little over a year. He was 25 when we got married and I was only a month away from turning We only dated 9 months before getting engaged and waited another 9 months before getting married.
In hind-sight we rushed it. I never really felt a burning passion for my husband and never really expected to. He was and is someone I look up to and ultimately feel comfortable with. The problem is and I have talked andthiught through these feelings a hundred times and every time they get more and more confusing …I have two guys who love me deeply …one of whom I care forbut I feel is holding me back from a lot of things I want to do in my life though he tries to support them and the other?
I need him in my life … But the only way he wants to be in my life is as my husband …he really has been trying. I am a hard worker, smart, detail oriented and a successful person. This created an enemy for me at work and caused it to be horrible as he is a manipulator and used to effect on peoples opinions about me, until I met him.
Feeling attracted to another person is usually harmless. And it doesn't mean you're a shady girlfriend or a bad husband, or that your. Nobody's even ever felt what I'm feeling except that other person, to it when you were dating each other and then you finally got married. Jarrid is a married man, but he freely admits he is dating someone. This is a must read.
We have lots of common, in our core values, but he is married and I took him as a friend. I was happy to be able to be his friend and for 2 years we were, until I got engaged! My x guy now, was bad news and I end up ending it, after 11 months.
I was emotionally hurt, broken, exhausted and it was horrible. On top of that, my friend, took a step back and was away. I was deeply hurt by his distance but I thought he is giving me a space.
I honestly had a thing for him since ever, but I never look at married men! It is a no situation. Now after broken my engagement slowly my friend came back and I welcomed him. He then chose to tell me he loves me. I see it, the process you talk about in ALL. I told him he has a wife and kids, a family he said was always enough and he was accepting life and happy with it.
It created a huge problem for me and at times I became weak and told him I had feelings too. In a way his love, made be heal better, but it also hurt me a lot. We were platonic, not even flirting but the comfort and level of connection we had, made me feel bad.
I told him we have to face it, this is NOT good. He also was regretting telling me big times. We have a great friendship and we can be blunt, totally honest and still love each other.
I do want to help him and I am actually glad I can see it, heal my wounds and say finally he is not the man of my life and though I love him a lot, though I would take him if he was single, he is not and I am not going there. We are still friends, good ones but how I will know he is not still doing it wrong?
I am a positive person and I love caring and giving, naturally. I know he can have it all! Can you help? I should say at times I believed he is my other half, we are different but totally the same.
He still says I complete him and we have this huge level of understanding. It is like we have the same core, in two personality and when we were friends I used to joke, we must be twins! And with him I have no fears, and feel totally safe. I never had that before but I also accept now it is not limited to him.
I wonder also if I should stop being friends with him? If it is harmful for me? I would hate that but I am OK to do it if it is needed. I want to do the best for me and him. Thank you.

My wife just lays there like a corpse and will not have oral sex either. My heart aches for love. I want to be her right now. I want our bodies to be one. I been married 8 years from now…but after he bring me here at usa.
Been married to my husband for 14 years with 2 preteens. We carry a lot of pain from our past.
Im dating someone and im married
From the hurtful things we did to eat other as teenagers. Seems our past will alway haunt us. It always comes up in arguments. My husband is a great father and provider.
Just really bad about verbally respecting me and the pain a carry from him stepping out of our marriage is everlasting. Because financial reasons we lived under the same roof but was separated. I started to emotionally move on. Started going out with the ladies and enjoying myself.
Someone I was madly in love with in the past. I wanted a family more than anything. He was single. Just out of a relationship as well. So we exchange numbers that night. Short story, became friends again. Was helping each other thru our break ups and feels started back right where they left off.
We got together one night and it was a night full of passion. We have the best relationship. Talkrespectromance and it feels like we truly know each other. He pledes me back. And I thought I would leave this passionate guy who took my heart alone. So I told my husband I broke it off with him. And kept doing what I do with the other guy on the side. In the back of my mind I thought my husband was just going to fail.
Something needs to change and I really need o make a decision on what I want. Guy number 2 is wanting more from me now. I do truly care for both men. So confused!! Can you please help me. Can you email me at gengarcit gmail.
I want to talk to you. Can you email me at gengarciat gmail. I married my husband six years ago. I did not love him at the time of marriage, but decided to get married because 1 in the ten years preceding my marriage, my parents had become increasingly derisive about my age and the need to settle down, and 2 my husband was the first man I slept with.
The Sunday-school girl in me felt tremendous guilt and thought marriage would appease the guilt. My husband is a good person. I respect his strong sense of honor and responsibility. He also has deep insecurities. He will not undertake any potentially confrontational tasks such as car purchasing, mortgage discussions, utility connections, tax filings, or anything that involves third parties. His insecurities may also contribute to performance anxiety, but we have a sexless marriage, no kids, and he believes mid-thirties are too old to have kids now.
I care about him a good deal and want to love him. I feel like I spend considerable time and money arranging activities which he invariably finds fault with. About three years ago, I realized how vulnerable my marriage was when my male colleague called about a work issue and we ended talking late into the night.
I could joke and debate with my colleague without worrying about hurting his feelings and it was a relief to not feel emotionally drained after a conversation. I enjoyed the conversation so much that I continued to have long phone discussions for three months before my guilt became such that I changed jobs and asked my husband to attend marital counseling with me.
He refused because of the expense and his strong belief that counselors are no-value-add-money pits. A year ago, I met another man. Again, it was a relief to talk to someone and not feel emotionally drained. Again I struggled with a considerable degree of self-loathing for months. Nevertheless, I continue to consider divorce because of the hopeless sadness I feel when I contemplate walking through the remainder of my life with my husband and without even the consolation of children.
I met someone during my temporary work assignment. I came back to my country and he stays in that country where we met. Me and my husband already have issues before i met him.
Now, its making me more confuse. My husband is a good man. But i dont think i love him anymore. I also have 1 kid. I need your advise. I apologize for a long story but I feel I must tell it because I need help and have nowhere to go. I grew up in a very sheltered household as an only-child and went to an all-boys school up until college.
I never interacted with girls at all until college. I joined a church and became very involved with it, and met a woman 5 years my senior and we dated for a little over a year and a half, at which point I discovered her visa would expire within a few months she was an immigrant. Being inexperienced and afraid of the pain of a break up I decided we should get married, and for some crazy reason both of our parents gave us approval. We were both students and during the entire four years we were essentially living off of student loan leftovers and support from parents.
About two years into the marriage, I started to feel like maybe this was a stupid decision. I think we both just latched on to whoever came our way. In addition to that, we have lots of issues. Her family and friends drive me insane. They always have. When I try to discuss an issue I either get hostility and she explodes with the issues she has with me but for some reason never tried communicating, or she plays a pouting guilt trip and then giggles like a little kid when I take back what I said.
On occasion she will recognize the issue and say she will work on it, but then never does or temporarily fixes it and relapses a short time later. I made a list of goods and bads in our relationship, and aside from her being kind and supportive, the list of bads is exponentially longer and a constant source of stress and irritation for me. Now we live separately due to work, and I feel our futures are going separate ways. My degree, qualifications, and language skill limit me to working overseas.
I am unqualified to work in the US, and even if I were I refuse to because life is much better for me here healthcare, etc. My wife had planned on getting a degree and acquiring the language skill to work here with me, but that fell through and she cannot work here, and I will not be able to support her on one salary.
My future is here overseas, and her future is back home with her family store. So here I am, wondering why I got married before getting my life together, perfectly content being alone here in a foreign country. And then I randomly met one girl and dropped my guard slightly nothing physicaland within a couple of hours I felt like I had known this person my entire life.
As if I had met her at some point in the past. Even though I already have so many times. My life has been one that has been controlled by fear and loneliness. I have always felt unloved and unwanted and fear of being alone has lead me into many relationships. I crave being talked to. I crave the intimacy of conversation and time spent together. When I first dated my wife all the red flags were flying in my mind. She is extremely introverted and damaged psychologically.
We weren't dating but I had strong feelings for him and our . that I felt I was at the wedding with the wrong person because I didn't have that kind of He's still wonderful and I care about him, I'm just not sure he's the right. I'm in a 5-year marriage with someone I don't really love. Lisa Concepcion, Certification Life Coaching & Dating and Relationships, iPEC. I'm Dating Someone Even Though I'm Married. Here's Why. Jarrid Wilson is a husband, pastor, author, and blogger. And he has a confession that has got.
I was extremely lonely in the dating period but married her because we had become sexually active and I was fearful no one would ever come to really love me for who I am. We separated our seven year of marriage because my loneliness within the marriage lead me to seeking relationship out of the home.
After seven years apart and two short term relationships and her in four relationships I turned to religion and once more married my first wife. We have been together now 13 years and once again I am suffering mightily from loneliness. I have come to the point of almost hating her for leaving me so lonely. I want out of our marriage even if that means I never ever love again.
I made a terrible mistake by choosing a woman who cannot physically make herself talk to me. What pains me in this is there will once again be fear on my part. Fear of loneliness and fear of spending the rest of my life alone. I have been suicidal for at least three years maybe up to six years because of loneliness.
Staying with her will only strengthen my resolve to commit suicide. Leaving her a second time hurts like hell because it destroys me and rips my heart apart to hurt anyone.
I can get you since I have always felt lonely in my marriage too. I found out it was the original family wounding that caused these feelings. Now I stated loving myself more and doing lots of things, connecting with collegues, friends… My male bff got cancer and passed away, so I was really left totally desparate since he was a conversation partner in all matters.
Which my husband refuses to be. He does not want to share his inner feelings. I have been married for 3 years, but in the relationship for 11 and living together for 7.
No kids. We met very young and moved in together when we were It started as just some fun, but the more we talked the more I fell for him.
We have so much in common and share so many interests that my husband has no interest in. I have fallen completely in love with him. The other guy has waited on me, but has recently gotten into a relationship with a girl. But nothing has really changed with us except I do not near from him all the time now. He has no idea that I do actually love him. I have one child not sure what to do. Since then every year I travel to where my boyfriend lives for month to spend time with him.
My boyfriend is not an easy person, sometimes we argue together, but we have a great sexhe has been waiting for 5 years that I get my divorce to marry me, but I feel so guilty to leave my husband.
My husband is a really good man and he loves me a lot, but I have no sexual attraction toward him, and we have sex together every 1 or2 weeks. My husband is very passive, type B personality and my boyfriend is very active type A personality.
Iv been married for almost 4 years, recently we seperated for 6 months and I met someone else who I feel is a better fit for my life. She has a great personality and very attractive, but I do still love my wife so I told her to come back home along with our 1 year old daughter. I tried leaving the other woman but something always keeps bringing me back to her.
My mind tells me to stay with my family and work on our marriage but my heart tells me to leave and go with the other woman and live happily ever after. Only after reading so many things online statistics say it might not work out with the new woman.
We were just almost 5 months in our relationship when i got pregnant. My husband then, agreed but, he had asked me ways to deceived my family.
He even asked if we could fake it. But the only normal thing we did as a couple was having sex. We never connected emotionally. We lived with my parents.
For the past three years, he was a student for a year and a half and was never with me and our kid more than a month straight. After that, he leave us for an ojt for a year. Im certain, he missed the growing up of our child.
Now, our son is three years old and during those short times my husband had a strong bond with our child. Likewise with the kid who always asks for his father.
And it seems, my husband forgot everything from the past and treated me good. But i am more on off. I was always confused with him. I even remembered my ex and thought i was still inlove with him.
I cried for my ex even i already have a husband. Now, Im talking to a guy online for a month now. And i developed a certain degree of attraction to him. But im not certain if the feeling is mutual. However, he said he likes me though im difficult. Im excited about the idea. I always thought about this new man. I even began writing to my diary again because i was alarmed that i felt so vulnerable with this stranger.
Now, I know what we have or will have is a different concern and not the most important thing here. My confusion is about me and my husband. I really wanted to be free but i do not know how to start saying it to him. And my son, i dont want him to get hurt and drag to this hurtful situation. He loves his father so much. But i cant feel anything with my husband now. No connection at all. I will start with me. I think I have a problem with relationships in general because I get this emotional affairs nothing physical even in my previous relationships… So the story with my husband.
Everything happened very quickly I fell in love and everything was perfecthowever after one and half year of marriage something went wrong and we became very cold with each other its like we didnt care for each other and then he cheated on me. We split up for a while, then we decided to try and fix our relationship. We did it for a while 2 years and now Evrrything is repeating i found someone that I really like, he is smart and we click together perfectly however. How do I fix this? Is marriage all about fixing things all life.
But nothing seems right anymore. Hi, my name is Ryan and I have been with my wife for 12 years now. I have been with her since I was 15 and we just got married a few months ago. In the 12 year I have never cheated on her or even thought about it. Our relationship is good but there is a problem. Back when I was in high school I had fallen for a girl in my class.
We would talk on off and on but had no physical contact. We lost contact for a few years and in that time she had a kid and was in an unhappy relationship. We started talking again a few years ago still no physical contact and my wife then girlfriend found out. After she found out I stop talking to the girl and moved on. Well she is back and I have been talking to her again dally and I have been meeting with her here and there still not sexual contact but I can see it going that way.
Due to this I have been shutting out my wife who is causing her to be more suspicious and causing us to fight a lot more. There is no perfect relationship…every marriage has its own unique set of obstacles.
Many people leave their husbands or their wives because stronger feelings pull them to another relationship…but when they get to that other relationship, the majority of the time it ends very badly.
We have some great tools and programs on our website for situations just like yours. I have been with my wife for 17 years, and married for We have a four year old son together.
She is an alcoholic, pill popper, and suffers from depression. Her family sucks, and has always made her and our life very hard. She probably would have moved on to someone new even if you had. I am sorry if that seems harsh, but we have seen it time and time again. It may seem cliche at this point, but it is not too late to make your marriage stronger and healthier and start treating each other with respect.
I am married for 23 years now, with a loving wife and 2 children. It was love at first site. I used to wait for her every day, follow her upto to her college and back. She is to take a bus and go to her village 20km away.
Sometimes I used to follow her upto her house on my mobike. I am from India. I was totally shattered and heart broken and felt, I can never get married in my life. The time was too short, probably 2 odd months, after I saw her. Some consolation was, she was to be married in a good family, so I felt happy for her. It was a hopeless situation for me caste wise, no job, no social standing, Indian social conditions, etc etc.
But she stayed in my heart and she will, till I die. Now inafter 24 years or so, my friend called and put her on the phone. He is from her same village and married her friend 2nd marriage. I always used to think, I should somehow see her atleast once before I die and tell her, I truly loved her. But this phone call has given such happiness to me, I could not believe it.
From that time, we kept in touch over the phone. Twice we have met, only to talk. She had a bad marriage, with 2 children. Her husband kind of sadist lives away. The connection is, only their property. We talk mostly about our children and my wife also.
She suffers from kidney stones, some health problems…she falls ill and accident prone too. I keep sending her money whenever she says, she is ill. Whatever, it is not possible for me to take her out of my heart, as I truly love her.
I never felt that feeling with anyone and never will…I still vividly remember the place I saw her for the first time and all the places I saw her, spoke to her and everything…Whatever she says, is very important to me and I simply cannot forget. I told my mother at that time when I fell in love with her and now, after I met her again. I made her to speak to my mother also… I am in different country now. I feel very guilty and painful. My wife loves me and cares for me a lot and she is emotionally attached to me.
I take good care of her too and seeing her happy is my top priority. After stumbling upon these blogs, thought I would write also. I really wonder if somebody is in the same strange situation and fighting like me…. Pavan, many people are in your situation.
You are not alone. These articles are culminated from years and years of experiences with thousands of people. And we have seen the outcome of these situations. For those that stay with their wife, they can make their marriage better than it was before. For those who leave with their lover, we have never seen that relationship make it. Jarrid Wilson is a husband, pastor, author, and blogger. And he has a confession that has everyone talking lately. You'll see why below. She's an incredible girl.
She's beautiful, smart, cunning, strong, and has an immensely strong faith in God. I love to take her out to dinner, movies, local shows, and always tell her how beautiful she is. I can't remember the last time I was mad at her for longer than five minutes, and her smile always seems to brighten up my day no matter the circumstances. Sometimes she will visit me at work unannounced, make me an incredible lunch, or even surprise me with something she personally baked.
You may not have set out to fall in love with a married man, but there are times in life when even the most intelligent women find their emotions getting the better of them. Loving and dating a married man can be extremely painful and seldom works out well. But this article is not intended to judge anyone or tell you to "just dump him! How many men do you know who are ruining their lives because of a woman?
Now, how many women do you know who have sacrificed all for a man? Women need to think and act the way men do to find happiness. Men never put their relationships first. At least moderately successful men don't. That is why they are happier than women are. Women have a tendency to meet a guy and then focus their entire lives on him.
They will stop thinking about attending school or put business plans on hold after meeting someone who sweeps them off their feet. This is a bad idea even if the guy is not married. But if he is, you have truly just shot yourself in the foot because you have given up a piece of yourself for a someone who belongs to another. You will become more and more resentful over time. Look at your lover boy for what he is and control your emotions. If he is obviously lying to you to keep you available to him, consider if the relationship is worth your time or not.
If he can somehow help you in life by making you more successful, paying your bills, or buying you a home, then you have gotten something to show for your time. It's a matter of being honest with yourself. If he is married and has no intention of leaving his wife, then he may have been dating many women over the years. Usually when a man has this pattern, he dates the woman until she begins to expect more out of him.
Then, he dumps her, finds another woman to sleep with before getting rid of her when she gets tired of being a doormat. The truth is, a guy will string you along as long as you will let him. It's up to you to look out for yourself and avoid being taken advantage of.
Ask yourself this question: "What am I getting out of dating a married man? I am not being judgmental here. But if your guy plays with you for free and then goes home to his wife and plays the husband while you sulk, you are only torturing yourself and being a hooker who works for free. To be wise and economical, it's time to ask your "boyfriend" to help you out financially.
This way when the time comes that you are not together anymore, at least he helped you pay your mortgage. Before you go off on a rant about how expecting or wanting money or gifts is prostitution and that it's all about the love here, remember that dating a married man is not exactly moral either.
The difference here is at least you are not being raked over the coals as you would be if you simply smile and put out like a good girl. You must be realistic here and accept that what you are involved in is risky in many ways.
One of the things that often destroys women in your situation is the shock of suddenly being dumped because of something that is happening in his marriage, or because of stress that you are causing him at home. Believe me, when this happens, having that extra money invested will lead you to think, "At least I got something out of it. I know you are probably thinking that you are in a unique and different situation because he truly loves you, and you love him, etc.
But that is what they all say, and when stress and reality get involved, people's emotions and decisions tend to be all the same after all. But that is what they all say. For nine years, my friend Darleen dated a man who was married and now regrets it. Her man told her that he loved her but because he had two children with his wife, he could not leave her. He also said that he no longer slept with his wife, but that they had an understanding. Darleen would tell me that if he could leave his wife for her, he certainly would and that her man often showed great concern for whether or not she was cheating on him.
Yes, love is blind. I found myself angry quite often as I told Darleen that if he loved her he would divorce his wife rather than play this game with her. Poor Darleen had excuses for everything. She got on her high horse by stating that if a man has kids he can't leave. I happen to have known several highly moral men who divorced their wives even though they had two or three kids. After the divorce, they took care of their children at least half of the time.
The truth is, a man will change his life around and do anything to win you over if he truly does love you. If he is content to have sex with you and makes no move to make a permanent life with you, then you must understand that he does not see you as being very important. Or not important enough. I know that your ego does not want to accept that fact but put the shoe on the other foot for a moment.
If you were with a man who you were not having sex with and who you did not love, and you had this man on the side who you truly did love and had a great connection with, would you be content to go home to the man you did not really want, knowing that your lover is single and could easily find someone who is available for him full time?
Men are concerned with having their woman all to themselves. It is actually proof of disinterest on his part if he does not care who you are with and what you are doing.
If he sees you as a valuable woman, he will know that other men are after you, and he will want to make sure that he gets you before someone else does. Darleen made excuses for her married lover for years, and she believed him when he told her that he could not stand his wife and never touched her. After listening to her talk about their intimate discussions, I figured out that her lover had caught on to the fact that Darleen seemed to accept him going home to his wife as long as he and his wife were no longer sleeping together.
Things got a little tricky when his wife suddenly became pregnant. Darleen worked in a building across the street from her lover's wife and was able to spy on her every so often. Darleen's guy informed her that his wife had been bugging him for years to have another baby, and he finally gave in.
I'm dating someone even though I'm married Funny pictures about I'm dating someone even though I'm married. Oh, and cool pics about I'm dating someone. Usually when a man has this pattern, he dates the woman until she .. I'm just at the point where I don't know how she's still with him, why. If you know what I'm talking about, consider these 3 questions: they married the wrong person; 11% say they're attracted to someone else; 10% are no came into my awareness at UCI as a Dating Site Researcher (that's the title I gave him) .
Not that they were sexual or anything—he explained that in order to touch her, he had to get drunk. The wife had marked the calendar for the day when she was fertile, and they did it just that once in order to have a baby. The lies can be clever and convincing, but I always say, "Assume that the man is lying until you are engaged, married, or something close.
If he seems content to let the relationship go on for years as it is, you should see that he is using you for some fun on the side. So, by all means, date other men. Remember, it's not cheating on your part because he is married. I hear that one a lot. The married guy says, "Don't cheat on me.
Otherwise, you will find yourself rejected by your married lover and you will be left alone. Date on the side to keep yourself from becoming too attached to this man and to keep reality in perspective. When Darleen finally listened to me and began to see other men, her viewpoint changed dramatically.
Her married lover began to only see her for sex. They were meeting in hotels and were meeting in his car after work. Darleen was not even getting a meal out of it. Sometimes they would go to a bar and have a few drinks and then go to his car.
When she began putting her photo on dating sites, she felt more powerful because she could see that there were a lot of other guys out there. Some of these guys took her to exciting places, bought her nice gifts, and even offered her spending money.
What's the best cure for a man? The answer is another one! When you have a man abusing your emotions, don't feel guilty about seeing what else is out there. Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account. Comments are not for promoting your articles or other sites.
This is literal garbage. The OP is has a garbage sense of "morals" and these pathetic comments below of all your relationship "woes" of dating MARRIED men are disgustingly self-pitting and morally bankrupt. You're disgusting.
I feel in love with a married man in We never did anything about it - his feelings for me were the same. I moved out of town because I didn't want to have any part of it but was crushed.
He emailed me that he left his wife and said his marriage had been strained for years. Months later when I got off my work assignment overseas I came back to be with him.
My friends all told me it would be a disaster. It has been 7 years now that we have been married and we are more in love with each other than when we first met. I am the luckiest woman on the planet. Some things were meant to be. We met 6years ago while traveling, he jumped in to protect me in one uncomfortable situation. He then invited to travel with them, I refused as I was afraid of him traumas from my past, I never said that to him then or after We connected on social media, almost no contact, living in different parts of world.
I'm a rape and almost every other kind abuse, long-term survivor. He doesn't know anything of that. Then in few months I travel to another country to meet him this was 2. They all like me. After couple of months I travel to meet him 4.
He never initiated anything physical again after 3. He wants to be with me, isn't after sex.
When they came I wrote him in sense to not ignore me or I cut him off forever and he answered, didn't want to lose me. I hug him, we should kiss, I run away. He was never rude. In this field I'm a ruin, handicapped. Years ago I decided to live in complete celibacy forever. After that last time 5months ago I understood I really can't live like that anymore, hurting someone I love. A week ago by complete chance I found out on social media that he got married this May, they are about 10years together already, no kids, engagement last May we met 2times after it.
Now we had talked just 2days before, he was the same happy to see me in one week again, as usual. I asked him about, he confirmed.
And for 1. I wrote that I wish him only Happiness in life, and to not hug other women as if he'd want to be with them. No answer. We never even kissed, but he understood when we met 2. My friend then wrote him message if he understands what damage he did to me with his little game. I still can't get over him.
I don't want to be used for sex only then thrown away, it happened not once in past. I don't want sex with him as long as he is married.
I don't want to hurt anyone, especially not me. I don't wish anything bad to his family, they are good people and we his brother, some very close friends are kind of friends.
Last time we met I said to him that in this year for few months I want to move to his city to learn the language, he was shocked but then invited me. I am dating am in love with a married man now I don't know what to do cause he has me in his other place and wont let me go out unless I am with him but he gave me the story cause he is keeping me safe and out of what I want and need to do but he said a lot and did a lot to get me now I do more for him than he does for me and I am always alone and before he was always want to go places with me and have fun with me and I know he tells her lies and now he is lying to me too how do I get out before I get hurt more.
You only said one side of the story - did you have an affair with her? You know Are you also playing game with her - believe me - Karma. What if she kill herself because of you? You think you are not guilty in this game of two? So don't be cruel to people play with their emotions. You laughed at her because she is in love with you and you are in a healthy state after all this?
If you are looking for married man for dating then you have many online dating website where you can find married partner for dating. You have findchix. I hope everyone here is getting STD tested on a regular basis because if a married man will go behind his spouse's back for sex another woman mistress, affair partner, wacko on the prowl And yes, I was the wife who had to go through the humiliation and TERROR of STD testing and he did too when his affair came out because of course and most do they threw caution to the wind and didn't use protection.
I hope the women posting here as the "eager and willing affair partners" could experience the pain even for one day of being the betrayed spouse and see the look on their devastated children's faces when they realize that dadd is lying and manipulating and willingly destroying their family for his own pathetic and selfish purposes.
Why don't these men just leave their wives? Because they are having their cake and eating it too Or reveal the affair themselves. Anyone, with any IT experience, can find it. Men rarely leave their wives for affair partners because most are pussies and can't be the agents of change or truth. They'd rather lie, manipulate and gas light their wives and probably their affair partners too than be true men and speak their truth: they want out of a marriage or an affair relationship or both.
They sometimes think they are doing less damage than if they asked for a divorce So ladies ask yourselves And don't think one word you are hearing about his wife is true Don't get me started? I hope you are laughing cause that IS marriage! Oh and don't forget the sexy bills, taking kids to doctor or ER in middle of night for emergency or dealing with aging parents. Honestly, grow up ladies.
Stop helping to wreck these women's lives and realize these men are using you!!! Faced with the certainty of losing their family life which also helps their income level! Hope this has given you all something to mull about when you are inviting a married man to help betray his wife, children and extended family thru the charade of an affair.
Get yourself a real relationship. Just some thoughts from the other side. And again, just please Hi all i am separated for 3 years now. I loved my husband we have 2 kids, but he left me for a much younger girl.
I have been on and off in relationship with men both married and single,until i met this man. He told me at the onset that he was married. I really didn't have issues with that bcos i loved him. I found out lately that he is cheating on me with other women apart from his wife.
I really am mad at him and want to leave but i still really love him. What should I do? I need advice help me ladies. I have been with this sweet caring loving married man. However I keep making degrees back to him every time I try a new relationship I end up back with him because I honestly love him so much.
And he loves me. Never said anything bad about her. He tells me he loves me and how he marry because at the time he went through awful relationships and needed a life. I need to decide if I should stay and stop running or leave and never look back.
How do I prepare for either decisions? He has 2 twins a boy and a girl they are into freshman in high school. His wife knows about me. We see each other a lot and we text every day all day. Do I just give up. We are going away in a few months for the first time together but he has a work meeting too.
You should get out. He may not even be who he says he is. You haven't met him face to face. You haven't been intimate so no loss. Let him go before you find it impossible to. Trust me. Im 4 years in and cant walk away. Ive been dating a single mom of two for two years. In the begining it was just her and myself then me, her and the girls. OMG they are soo darling. I attend some of her family functions like xmas dinner, birthdays and what not. My marriage has been in termoil way before my affair.
We have a son in college and in debt up to our eyeballs. My wife and I sleep in seperate rooms now for almost three years and no we do not have sex we have tried but our bodies will not respond to each other.
I know if I leave home this woman will accept me in her life but I will be so finacially disturbed how can I help her and her children. I know thats not my responsibility but those girls OMG. Shit or get off the pot I guess My husband passed away after 40 years of marriage. Maybe something was missing but i got involved with my married Chiropractor who has been married for 25 years and has 2 adult children and we began a sexual affair.
We met two or three times a month at my house but after 6 months I had decided to end our fake relationship. He liked having access to me and i was a breath of fresh air in his busy mundane life. He had never cheated before and often expressed guilt. He really was a good man. Fact: he was not available to me and i was wasting my time on someone who could never be there for me.
I broke it off, without a word. Blocked his number Cold turkey. He will never value me or appreciate what he had with me so it was time to let go.
He violated his ethics and his vows and couldn't justify it. I didn't want to ruin his life either. I'll be fine. From now on I will measure the quality of every man who comes into my life and if any of them are like my late husband i won't let them go. I care a lot for him as he does me. I care a lot for him. And from the beginning was very honest about his relationship with his spouse who he has gone through a lot with and not in a good way either.
Not sure to continue or wait to see what could be. Slightly meaning we live many many miles apart. West coast vs East Coast. The chemistry we have is crazy I know he loves his kids and spouse but he says the pull here is real. Of course intimacy has not happened but he has talked about one day hoping to hold me and hold a face to face deep conversation Help anyone?
He was living with his roommate who has children. He slept on the couch. Funny huh? Well this past weekend I called because he was home with his daughter and she went out. I had lost my house keys, he never answered my calls to help me as he had a key to my home. His wife was. I talked with her and she started asking questions. I told the truth, now I am the person who ruined his whole life. He never even liked me as so he says. But yet 4 to 5 days a week he came took me to dinner, stayed here in my bed having sex with me.
Telling me he was going to leave just not now. I was controlled with who I could talk to, what I can say. Please if you are in a relationship with a married man get out before he destroys your heart. He was so loving to me. Took care of me. Told me how much I meant to him. But now I meant absolutely nothing to him and this was my fault. Just as stated, yes indeed she told me he was sleeping in her bed and yes they were having sex.
All Lies since the first day we met. Please get out and save your heart and soul. It is so painful to be told all the horrible truths. I thought he was different than others that cheat. But truly he is the worst kind of married man anyone can meet. I love this article so very much. So true that you find yourself rejected and left alone when you put everything in the same basket for a married man.
If your married men are real and have been honest with you from the beginning and treated you as top priority compared to his family. Made you laughed, the most happiest person in the world and would discussed whenever you face problems. Would you consider to keep the relationship?
Not all married men are brutal liars. Men heart are bigger than women for sure. One is for real love and one for family and status. There are commitment and divided responsibilities to ensure how the society look at them.
Sounds weird but that's the facts. Just make sure they are not sleeping together. This topic should also differentiate true and genuine married men Vs those heartless men who uses their loved ones for own desire and selfish motives. Some men have also invested heavily when comes to long term emotions and impact when the time comes I liked some of this until the BS about making a man pay for you or support you. How dare you demean women and make them think the only thing they deserve is cash.
They are not hookers. I met this guy in a foreign country.
How to Handle Loving and Dating a Married Man
He asked me out, and I was instantly drawn to him before he even spoke to me. We had coffee. I asked straight up if he was married or had kids. He said he was separated and had two adult children. When he said separated I thought literally separated like they are no longer together but not yet divorced.
I had to go back to my country. We kept in touch.
Im dating someone even though i am married
I asked him if I could come visit he said sure. I came to visit and we started our relationship. When I come to visit we are living together which I feel terrible about. For two months? He says ok. The problem is I think he really does love me.
I love him. We never fight, and get along great and laugh all the time. To make things even more weird is I had waking visions I was going to meet someone who loved me for about 2. It was ongoing. The entire time until I met him. But I feel like if he is still going to be with his wife maybe I should date others too.
Once in awhile I feel he is being fake but majority of the time I feel he is being sincere. Also he said he had a 7 year telationship with another woman. He never answers those calls in front of me. I am 26 years old and have been having an affair with my best friends father since i turned I know he won't leave his wife and family, but in the meantime we are having sex every day, talk to each other about what we're doing, what would happen if it got out and of course day to day problems at work.
We have been so careful, even while i was living in the house. It started as a place to live, but i knew he wanted me since i was 13, the way he would look at me, lick his lips, pat my ass, rub his well endowed baggage. They treated me as their own, yet i have crossed the line, lied and yet it has still been one my happiest pleasures.
We don't have time to worry, it is our time and yes it started out as lust, sex, at all hours of the day or night, but it has also turned into love. As hard as it is to take care of his wants and needs, i too have to take care of mine and so I to go out to take care of me, because one day, me is all i'm going to have. He treats me like a queen, we go away all the time, i have been to places all around this beautiful world because i satisfy him whenever, what ever he wants and i know this is his guilt by taking me away.
We have made love on beaches, in the mountains, airplanes, elevators, cars, in the house when i was still living there, in my bedroom, his office, even his work office, nude resorts, chalets, and it goes on and on. He bought me a 1 carat diamond ring and wedding band and we even came up with a story for people to believe who didn't know us.
He pays for a young gentleman to be at my beck and call for functions that include my friends and family, including his daughter, my bff. The past eight years i wouldn't trade at all, but we know it's coming to an end very soon, as i have met someone who is only 4 years older than me, not 18and we are starting to plan our wedding. No, he is not aware of my relationship with big daddy. All he knows is that this family took me in when mine didn't have time for me and i am treated like one of the kids.
Big daddy will walk me down the aisle, my bff will be my maid of honor and life will go on the way i hope it will. All I know for now is big daddy was my first sexual partner and it has been a great time and I am still his baby girl. I need opinions. Do you think a married man treats his wife similiar or the same?
What I am referring to is manipulation, control, emotionally detached. I feel honestly that my boyfriend is mentally abusive. I never intended on feelings being involved but they are.
He says they do their own thing. Even one of her friends told me the sane thing without even knowing about us.
We talk about him leaving her as they are talking about a seperation. We talk about a future. He calls and texts daily comes to my job daily. Just confused a little. I met this guy almost 4 years ago! He is 18 years older than me, but he was so charming and nice a total gentleman, he ask me out and first thing I asked if he was married, he said he was divorced, so we went along, going out having drinks, nice dinners for couple of months, then I decided to introduce him to my friends and coworkers on one of my birthday dinners, after that everything was great I met his friends and the wives of the friends, we had a great relationship until on of my coworkers one day told me that her husband has seen me with my boyfriend and he mentioned that he was married!!!
I met a charmer on one of my travel job assignments, he was married as I. I was going through a divorce, but he is still married, i have been dealing with him since to now, i have flown to see him and now we work in the same city, he claim he is separtated, and not sleeping in the same bed, also claims they dont have sex. However, i offered him to stay with me, when he arrived in TX, and he did, we had sex everyday, well i overheard every conversation, i put camera's with sound all around the house so that i could hear every conversation, because he had told me to much.
I feel bad listening, however i overheard him talking too her and the things i overheard, was crazy, like fighting, talk back and forth, about why she does not touch him, and why she does not help around the house and take care of the kids, and whay she smokes weed and drink for years.
He had cheated on her with several woman for 10 years before he met me, i told him why dont you set her and yourself free, he said ite because of the two kid, want to tell them, but they are to small to understand.
They are allways struggling financial, they dont have sex, she told him onthe phone that he knew she was not sexually active when they got married 16 years ago. So out of all of this he met me, and told me he cant see his life without me in it, and he loves me. Do not say he will not leave his wife and children, i can honestly say he will.
I was left with 4 children and he left for my best friend. It was devastating for me and my children, who had known her for 11 yrs. My fault was letting her be my confident. She knew every thing and used it against me. We still feel the effects of a divorce and there is distance between our children and their father. His girlfriendv is not welcome to any family activites. So every event is hectic tovsay the least. I've never dated a married man but now I find myself in love with one who seems to love me back.
But oh my God did I want to. We were friends for six months before I had a clue he liked me. Then another six months and a few drinks in he spills it.
His wife is jealous of me and he's had feelings for me for a long time. I thought we were just good friends who shared drinks, intimate stories, and nothing more. I was fighting some feelings for a few months but I figured crushes are health. Crushes clue you into what you like about people in general and make it easier to identify future good partners. But over the past few months I've had to practically stop myself from begging for a kiss from him.
Before he confessed feelings he confessed his marriage was troubled and she cheated on him three times. I thought "People lie about that sort of thing sometimes" but, no, it was true.
