Our relationship started off with him being my mentor and helping me at work. He brought me to the house he lived in with his wife (she moved out and across the country) and that made me uncomfortable.
I saw evidence of the fighting they had (holes in the wall, broken banisters), and I just wanted to take care of him.
His unavailability was a turn-on, the danger of it all.
But it was upsetting because we couldn't do normal couple things.
Ask any heartbroken partner from a relationship split apart due to infidelity: Affairs can be bad news.
That being said, they’re also hella complicated, yet often blamed on the evil “home-wrecking” woman, who surely must be out to steal someone’s man and cause as much damage as possible.
He was verbally, mentally, and emotionally abusive toward me.
He tried to talk me into getting plastic surgery and would say I was 'unhinged' when I got too upset.There was obviously chemistry, but I was a little uncomfortable at first about him being married, which continued into our relationship.He assured me that his wife was cool with it and that they had a 'don’t ask don’t tell' relationship.I can't stand him, and he's nothing but a constant reminder of all the mistakes I made and how low my self-esteem was at the time to have put up with him for so long." Six years after graduating high school, I had an affair with my former gym teacher.In high school, all of the girls drooled over him; he was this tall, buff guy, with bright blue eyes and the ex-NFL look.
