All Secrets Revealed by Date
Did my ex
I slept with an ex-girlfriend while my wife was overseas. I am feeling completely guilty about it and have insomnia as I can’t let go and am feeling rather fearful and selfish about my actions.
Hiding contact with ex
I lied about my ex contacting me because it drudged up feelings and I engaged in a conversation with him. Ironically, it made me closer and more attached to my boyfriend. My boyfriend sensed something was up but he thinks it was something else and we got in a huge fight about that. Now I’m terrified my boyfriend will somehow find out the truth and never trust me again.
Hate my husband
My husband is an abusive psychopath. He’s cheated on me 2 times. Once with a prostitute and once in a relationship with someone that lasted a few months.
My cheating is getting the best of me
I cheated on my fiancée this past weekend. I feel so guilty and shitty about it. I love her with all my heart and the thought of losing her and my kids destroys me. I have no good reason why I cheated. I just met a girl online and we hooked up. I was very stressed at the time because we were moving, the kids, and we also weren’t very intimate for a while. I know it’s not a good excuse and in any way justifiable. But I can’t help but think about what I have done. I have lost sleep over it and I also am having trouble concentrating on normal tasks and eating.
I’m the other woman and he’s trying to work things out with his wife
I have been having an affair for 9 years. I left my husband 2 years ago. My lover did not leave his wife nor did I expect him to... yet. We recently got caught by his wife. He feels awful because he had recently told her their marriage was over but didn’t disclose us. Since she found out, she has begged him to stay with her. He agreed to go to emergency marriage counselling but told me it was in an effort to help her through this horrendous deception. He had one day after leaving my side and going home to deal with her pain. She took his phone and the counsellor said he could have no contact with me. I’m sick with fear that between his 22-year-old daughters threats of forever hating him and his wife’s devastation, he might decide to stay in the marriage.
I know he loves me and I know he will regret it if he stays with his wife. He is torn between what he wants and what he feels he should do. I am so physically ill with anxiety I have become depressed. I am waiting till he regains some control over his life to know what mine is going to be.
Do not come back with advice about living my own life or being calm until things work themselves out. I am in crisis mode worrying about what he’s being put through and that no therapist could understand what we are together. They will try to make him save the marriage. And make me look like the interloper... the horrible temptress that has no moral code nor cares about his daughter.
No one cares about the "mistress" who simply loves this man with her heart and soul.
Tell me what I’m missing. What am I not considering?
