    How amazing it begins to feel

    when I can finally realize that I'm ok without him. I no longer obsess over hearing from him. I no longer have that urge to see him again. He claims he's just busy but at this point I really don't care like I did before. I was way too invested in something that I knew deep down...

    Today, almost one year later,

    I had a flashback memory of my ap. And it hit me like a ton of bricks. It was not a tender sweet memory of us together. It was a memory of a time when he sensed my frustration in wanting more and me distancing myself from him. A memory of how he made me believe we would maybe...

    why do people like to call the ap women home

    wrecker??!! Come on... So sad to hear people say that.. It's ignorant, judge mental and so much more...truth is... If the home wasn't off to begin with the affair wouldn't have happened. It takes two people to make an affair work. So if anyone is a home wrecker it's the dam...

    I'm new here but thought I would post.

    My H is an over the road trucker and is only home a few nights every month. I've been seeing a single guy that lives down the street from me for the past year and although we are not in love, it's a wonderful physical relationship.

    It was an okay day, I saw my ex at work,

    we took a break together and i was pretty up beat, i am trying so hard to put on a straight face, i didn't get sad today. I have to believe that i can overcome anything, i will get over him. Closure helps and acceptance that it's over and it's for the best.

    anyway. We are both married, and yes, I know it's awful of us to seek comfort in each other, but we did. The first time we met for sex I was so nervous that I accidently locked my keys in my car. He had to call AAA to come open it for me. That sucked, but we still managed to...

    Those of you who had an affair

    and experienced a D-day with your spouse... what does it feel like? I'm curious.... sorry if the question sounded weird. I just want to be more prepared if my affair came to light. (unlikely since it is over but I'll never know for sure that it won't happen)

    some people will try to be more sexual with their spouse. either out of guilt or increased sex drive. does anyone have experience with this?
