I met a man a little over a year and a half ago.
He was 44 I was 25. We fell deeply and madly in love. He was handsome, charismatic and bright, everything I had ever wanted in a man. We dated for about 9 months, then I found out just before last Christmas that he was married with a 2 year old daughter. I was so horrified that I couldn't eat for over a week. I couldn't believe that this was happening to me. This was the only man that I have ever loved.
I am still heartbroken over this, I still cry, I still ruminate, I still obsess. A part of me feels very stupid for continuing on with the affair even after I found out he was married. Unaware of the way affairs usually end up, I naively believed he would leave. As time went on I became more and more frustrated and the relationship became unbearably painful. I learned many lessons from this man.
1. NEVER EVER become involved with a married man NOTHING good can come out of it.
2. Never become financially dependent on a man unless he is rich and you are married to him.
3. Do a little digging on a man before you become emotionally involved with him.
4. There is no limit to human suffering
