I Am In Love With a Married Man

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 591 People

    I have been in love with a married man

    for 3 years now. I adore him and I cherish the time we have together. However this is one of the most difficult situations I have ever been in. The highs and lows are extreme. He doesn't want to leave her because he doesn't want to hurt anyone. I don't want anyone to hurt either...

    We're Both Married, In Love With Each Other, And Wondering If I'm Just Staying Because Its Easier...

    I've been married for eight years, and dated my husband for four years before that. When he proposed I had hesitations, (not being tied down yet, etc) but I loved him, and knew he'd be a good husband, good provider, etc. He's loyal, smart, forgiving, and handsome. He knows how to...

    He is busy again, or

    rather she isn’t. Wait and wonder, wonder and wait. Seethe and assume and swirl and fester. Hello and… …I’m sorry What was that now? Who is this self indulgent woman who we used to would have hated? What is blocking the light at the end of this sweet tunnel? (other...

    Today the struggle is

    so real today, missing my MM so bad. Use to seeing him everyday and today I didn't . Being the OW is the hardest thing I have ever done. First time I have done something like this and I promise this will b the last. Falling in love with someone u can't have full time sucks.

    Loving someone in this world is the best things

    that everyone can do. But sometimes love cause pain that nobody can healed. I fell in love with the man that I really knew he never be mine at all. Loving him makes me so much pain, but once he was with me, i feel so much special to him. And i'm like a fool who will never see...

    Sometimes, I feel that I am not in love with

    him, maybe it's just some sort of addiction or obsession. Well atleast that's what I think it is, I am not sure though. I know I should be with someone who doesn't lie to me and who can take a stand for me. I really hope I get over him with time.

    I've known him for a while

    as just a friend but now I'm developing feelings for him. I recently asked him if he wanted to hangout and I'm not sure if it was a good idea but I really want to spend more time with him.

    I've known him for 8 years,

    was very single when we met. It was just a fwb type situation for a long time, on and off...more off than on, only because of me mostly. There's a 15 yr age difference (he's younger) and I thought for sure he had no interest in me other than sex. Last year, he got married. I...

    .... so deeply in love with a married man.

    There Is Just Something About Him..

    I honestly don't know what it is about this man that makes me so crazy in love. It could be how free and open he is with everything in his life. He does not fear judgement, because he says he is doing the best he can. It could be the bad boy past that has led him to be the...

    but I've fallen in love with a married man. He says I am the love of his life. We've only been together a few months. He is married with a 6 month old baby. I know it seems crazy, but we want to be together. He is unhappy in his marriage and wants to leave. but it's incredibly...

    PART 1 I plan to write several posts about this.

    Its quite a story, and I just have to tell it. I'll call him Lou. We found each other by accident. I was in an abusive marriage, desperate and alone. I was meeting men online and trying to find an escape from my unhappiness. He responded to an inane post I made one night, and...

    Ok girls this has been a messed up week.

    I have an issue with trust with my MM. I made the mistake at looking at his facebook. What I found was really no surprise. He was chatting with a girl in texas. He was flirting and telling her he wanted to see her. In short it looked like he was getting ready to try to start...

    that I always want to hear. How much he believes in us, how he is NOT in this relationship wasting time waiting for it to end, and how serious he is about getting the hell out of there. He's working on a place to live, which is the only definite thing keeping him there. Being...

    I meet this guy from work,

    he is playful, funny, caring. Idk if he has some sort of attraction to me, but I think he does, somehow. He is married, and I feel that I have to keep my distance. The problem is, I have to see him everyday, and I become more and more liking him each day. It is so depressing.

    I don't know how to feel.

    I try as hard as I possibly can not to let it bother me that he's not completely mine. I try to understand that he's making steps, and I need to be patient. I don't push, I don't complain. I let him do what he needs to do. He wants me to give 100%. And he wants me to be open...

    I am unhappily married

    and I have developed strong feelings for an old mutual friend. We've reconnected and talk often. I've hinted around but he doesn't seem to catch on. He's married and a very devoted family man. Should I keep hinting or try to get over my feelings?
