I Am Defiantly Having An Emotional Affair

Okay so here is my story, I am 40 years old and over weight. I have been married for 20 years to a man with whom I pledged to spend the rest of my life. The problem is I have always bee a shy introvert who never left the house. I have lived a life of loneliness. I recently began seeing a therapist and began taking college classes. I find that I have very little in common with my husband, however I met a met a year ago that I really like. To be blunt he is not good looking and I would normally not give him the time of day, however he drove me to physical therapy over and over and in that time we grew close. We are not sexual at all it is just that he is always there for me when I need him,and he challenges me in conversations. He is well educated and I find that attractive.We talk daily and see each other several times a week. My husband knows him, and is aware of our friendship. In fact he encourages it. My husband is a wonderful man, but he is mentally like a child in many ways. He is in his own little world, and happy to be there. So that is my story.

Don't take advantage of your husband's trust... I did and I regret it cause now the pain of being in love with two men is unbearable... The guilt behind will kill you inside... Either leave him or make your husband the friend that you need.. please don't make the smae mistake I made .. save your heart from the heartache

Be carefull, the grass always seems greener on the other side.. but in reality its greener were you water it...

Be very careful with how you handle the situation you are in. Things ended in my EA and to this day I cry every night thinking of him before I go to sleep...heartaches.
