    I Never Thought I'd Be Here...

    Five years ago, I'd have scoffed at the idea of me being engaged in a torrid affair.  After all, I was the quintessential suburban housewife with beautiful, healthy children and an attentive, loving husband.  I still vividly remember that Sunday morning in church when I...

    I Left My Husband, And I Want Things To Work With My Flame

    Flame?!? I don't know what to call him. I've written about him before. We work together, having an emotional affair (whatever that is), and went out several times and became more than friends. Still haven't had full-on sex, but very close. I have been married 13 years but...

    Help! My Guy Is In England And I'm East Coast

    Not Quite So Sad!

    He went out of town for the weekend and both texted and chatted me- when he was with his best friends! For this guy, that's a BIG BIG thing. Anyway, I NEED to see him this week but we are still in the "is this right?" stage. Since he went out of town this week without her he will...
