    I had an online affair with someone I met

    through Craigslist. It lasted about two years. I eventually learned who she was. We met although it didn't go anywhere physically. I'm sometimes sad that she left but also grateful for that time we had together. She really helped me become a better person.

    If you are no longer in an online affair how

    did it end? Did you go back to your spouse? Did it fizzle out? Did you, or the other person, meet someone in the "real world" (for lack of a better term) and end the online affair? Did the other person just disappear one day?

    I tried to end our online affair a few times

    but each it breaks my heart to see him broken so we got back together with his assurance that he is taking good care of his wife and family and so am I. He just told me his wife knows something and she checked his phone. I am so dead.
