    My guy and I "met" on Ashley Madison three

    weeks ago or so. We exchanged emails, then met for coffee. It was instantly wonderful and intense. Then the guilt came. The next week we made it to the hotel, had our time, and it absolutely killed him. He was afraid he was hurting both me and his wife. I made no attempt...

    I think "he" lies to me about flirting

    CONSTANTLY with other women. He keeps them thinking he is available and is always talking and flirting. I am at my wits end with his lie's and now I am stuck here with nowhere else to go.
