    Haven't posted in awhile.

    ..since mm got busted (twice) there hasn't been much to say. W has been surprisingly calm aside from the initial fight and snide remarks it's rarely brought up in fact in his own words "she acts like everything is fine." I on the other hand am going a little crazy. She is almost...

    "The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    " So 8 months of NC are over. The texting app that I used to text him when I was drunk thinking he wouldn't know it was me didn't fool him. He knew it was me. We spent 2 hours last night texting back and forth. I just don't know what to think...

    I AM NOT THE OTHER WOMAN.

    There are many labels I could have. But "the other woman" is not one I use. That is NOT how I define myself or this relationship! It annoys me that we seem to be identified solely in that context here. No doubt that's who I would be from where she stands ... I'm sure that's...

    Ex mm texted me last night.

    "You message me and I always answer. I message you and nothing." I deleted the app we used to talk through so I obviously didn't get his messages. I told him that and he went nuts saying I was deliberately ignoring him. He wanted me to come over. I told him we were done over a...

    A Letter From The Other Woman

    You are the one he’s lived with for a very long time. I have known him for three years. You are the one who wakes up to his familiar face each and every day and you give him a peck on the cheek. I gaze into his deep brown eyes and run my hands through his slightly graying dark...

    Here's my story. I go to the gym every night.

    It helps me physically and mentally. This started back in March when I was newly single. This guy at the gym, Don, would always say hello to me and have a huge smile whenever he saw me. So, I said hello back. One day he got on the treadmill next to me and we started talking...

    Don't you women get it yet? Most married men are not going to leave their wife for the other woman. These men want the best of both and as long as you're giving it to them that's how things will be. These men are just missing that spark that passion that their marriage has lost...
