I am a professional well educated person. In my career I help others. I became involved with a married coworker and I myself am married. We both have children. He called me while I was hospitalized and stated he had been thinking about this for a long time and wanted to be more than just my friend but he didn't want it to effect either of our marriages or for anyone to get hurt. He had spent almost everyday talking to me at the end of my shift and beginning of his. He called it our alone time. He was very attentive. He started texting me one afternoon while at work and it was very explicit. I was so attracted to him and found myself doing things with him that I would not do with my husband of 12years. I was immediately comfortable with him and shared a part of myself with him that noone else will ever be allowed to share. The affair went on for 8 months. I am completely in love with him and it was not just sex! He decided to tell his wife and she called me. I miss him so much and I did all of the driving I picked him up and jumped through all of the hoops for him. I am hurting so bad and I feel I will never again be able to share myself! Am I alone or is this normal?
