I m dating a married man
“She’s thinking that being with this guy is ideal because he’s not going to want more from her because he’s already is married.” For other women, while they may feel uncomfortable about the man’s marriage, their own intimacy issues draw them to someone unavailable.“You may have an individual who wants deeper intimacy, but for whatever attachment reasons, they may be afraid,” explains Aaron.It’s very rarely ill-intentioned." "I met this guy on a work trip about three years ago. It was after our first kiss he told me that he was married. It was like, Then he started explaining how she was verbally abusive and I felt bad for him. There were times when I felt like it was wrong and a line was crossed.Our relationship started off with him being my mentor and helping me at work. He brought me to the house he lived in with his wife (she moved out and across the country) and that made me uncomfortable.Finally, I gave up and believed him when he said she would be ok with it.When we spent time together, it was mostly in parks outside of the city, or in our practice studio that we shared and played music in for a few months.But it was upsetting because we couldn't do normal couple things.I met some of his friends, but he never wanted to meet mine.
You find yourself going out less and less with friends, in case he can spare an hour to see you. Forget planning a nice romantic weekend away, there will always be some reason why it doesn’t happen. The awful cocktail of emotions when (not if) someone finds out about your affair – fear they’ll tell his wife, shame and, weirdly, some small relief.

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.He assured me that his wife was cool with it and that they had a 'don’t ask don’t tell' relationship.I suggested we tell her multiple times, but he wouldn’t have the courage.
