Him wanting to be with someone else outside of his marriage is to satisfy his selfish needs. If you are dating a married man or decides to, go ahead and have a good time with him but never forget who he really is. He is a man who wants to have his cake and eat it. He is self centered and unreliable, at least to his wife. Some men cheat not even because of anything they are lacking at home but because they know they can get away with it, so why not do it and enjoy both worlds.
His wife gives him what he needs to feel complete as a man. Well he probably just wants someone more fun than his wife and always available to him whenever he wants to have a good time. So the only one in the relationship really having everything he wants is him. More on this below. Be honest with yourself. He is a married man. He has a family already. So he is not looking for a wife or a new family. Regardless of what he tells you, his family will always come first. He will not divorce is wife and marry you.
A married man with kids once told me that we should run away together, start a new life blah blah blah and I just laughed. A man who is married and willing to leave his wife for you is an irresponsible man and will someday want to leave you for another woman. In which case he will quickly change you for someone else. Oh my wife is this and that but you are nothing like her. His business with his wife should not be any of your concern. But if you must talk about the wife or ask about his kids let it be positive. Someday you are going to get married and what goes around comes around; sometimes.
He will call you and or message you when he feels the coast is clear, so to speak or when he needs you. He will have a long list of excuses to stay with his wife such as financial and legal complications associated with divorce, children, or maybe because he is some affection left for his wife. If he is still with his wife, they are definitely having sex. Whether it is legally, financially or emotionally, you cannot claim him because he is married to someone else. Once the dating game is over, the emotional bond between you two will be over too.
Your lover may be a nice guy but he will never let emotions overcome him. The truth is men are smarter than women when it comes to dealing with emotions. He knows that if he holds onto his feelings for you, he can get in trouble with his wife and family. So, once it is over, he will move on.
You will be the only one to get hurt if you get emotionally attached to him while you two are just dating. If you are strong enough to accept all of this in the very beginning of dating a married man, only then you can save yourself from emotional distress. Dating a married man is not easy and chances are you may be going through the pain already. It is fair to question is there any way to stay happy or at least save yourself from the hurt while dating him? Truth be told, you need to be clear that this married man can only be a small part of your life. No matter how many promises he makes to you, he can never be more than that for you.
You need to make some rules for yourself if you really want to stay happy while dating him. Here are some classic rules:. Make a calendar that works for both of you. To make your dating successful, you must stick by these rules without any exceptions. After all, he is married, and you know that too.
Yes, you are dating him and it is the most beautiful thing that has happened to you but always remember that you are always going to be a secret. He cannot introduce you to his friends or family because he is already married. Showing off might blow your chances of making the most of this relationship. Whatever feelings you have for his wife, keep them to yourself.
And speaking ill of her may even get your guy to start having bad feelings for you. Like I have mentioned before, he is not going to leave his wife for you. He may be swearing that he will soon and he is working towards it but these promises are empty. Go out with your friends, have some alone time, meet other people, and maybe even travel somewhere alone. It is one of the most important dating rules of all. Keep in mind this is not a real relationship and you cannot really claim this man.
He might leave you whenever he feels he has had enough of you or probably when his wife finds out that you and her man are dating. Just pick yourself up, forget you ever even dating and move on for your own good. Once these words spill out of your mouth, you will start to act like you are in love with him and with love comes a sense of ownership. But the truth is, he is not your man and he probably never will be.
Some of the dos that I will be telling you might sound repetitive, but you gotta hear them, sister, especially if you want to save yourself from emotional distress while dating a married man. You deserve to be loved and nobody can love you better than yourself, not even the man you are currently dating. There is no need to sacrifice your happiness and settle for a relationship that you may have to keep a secret for the rest of your life just because the man you are dating is married.

You deserve so much better and you have every right to be loved the correct way. You are only dating this man to get your demands of love and affection fulfilled, right? Do not be a sacrificial goat, you have to make sure you are having fun in this relationship too. Even if you think you are madly in love with him, you should keep on looking for single men.
You are not really cheating on him if you are dating another guy. There is plenty of fish out in the sea better than the man you are trying to settle for. It is not healthy at all to limit yourself to this relationship. There is someone out there who can take better care of you better than this man and you will be his one and only, not the second best. The man was afraid of getting new relationship with me but he was afraid of letting me go. I'm glad I came across this. I'm seeing a married guy who totally lied about his relationship status.
He's a coworker who gets angry at me when he sees me talking to other male co-workers. I needed this, thanks for the insight. So here is a general principle: Then you will know what to do. You all need to step up to try yo think through your own problems. And lastly, you earn a good life by yourself, not anyone else. I've been involved with a guy recently. We do not stay in the same country. He comes to my country every two months for work then we meet each other. On his first visit, we've gone out a couple of times and he actually asked for other times to be with me although back then I'm in an open relationship with another guy hence I really don't pay attention to him.
After his first visit, he went back to his home country and continued chatting and keeping in touch with me. By that time, I have not much interest in him as the other guy I dated and I decided to be exclusive. Unfortunately, the other guy has issues with commitment and isn't emotionally available so I ended our relationship. Then the first guy messaged me asking why I've been quiet and whether I've been upset. I thought it's an opportunity to forget the other guy so I reconnected with this guy. We went on chatting for a month before he came back to the country where I'm at.
We met and I introduced him to my friends. My friends liked him and I did see that he was able to mingle with us inspite the fact that we are totally from different cultures. After that meeting, I went home with him to his hotel. And we had sex. That is my first time to have sex with anyone. It's not because I'm saving it for marriage but because my gut feel tells me whether I should do it or not. But for some reason with this guy, I felt a deep connection with and I never had hesitations to do it with him.
We spent all the days he was here together. I even took care of him when he got sick. Then we even had a night when we just cuddled and no sex involved. He was gentle and respectful all the time. He left for his country again, we continued chatting and he's not the type who chats. I opened up my thoughts about it and I did see that he exerted more effort in keeping in touch with me. Our messages are filled of I miss yous and I can't wait to see you messages.
I've never been more patient with anyone than I was with him. Then after a month, something urged me to research about him. I found his linkedin account then his fb. I never like adding the guy Im dating on social sites to avoid me seeing his past life. But what I found out after a week of stalking is heartbreaking.
I was led to a fb page of a woman who is married to him. They've been together for 11 years and married since They don;t have kids. I ended the relationship right away when I found out and he told me this "I'm sorry for not being honest with you: I have never done anything like this. But I like you and that's why I never had the nerve to tell you the truth.
Because I believe that it's better to hurt the person with the truth than make him happy with a lie. I stopped all connection with him after that. But my heart hurts so much whenever i remember that he's the one that I've give my whole self to. Its not a comment as such, but i need an advice. How do i ask for it and wont it cause any problems? He says he loves me and by his actions i see that and believe it too.
I ended the relationship I was with a married man after three years. We went to Mexico and he paid for the trip and I paid for airfare so a sugar daddy he was not. No contact for almost a month but I keep thinking about him. He told me was married and never said he would leave his wife and I never asked him to just thought someone else would come along a lot sooner. It hurts not having him in my life and it hurt when he was in my life because I was never his priority ever. From hard pain and experience, dating a married man is extremely hard.
I am always wondering his true feelings for his wife even though they are separated. I have gut feelings that he secretly private messages her on YouTube and messenger I have not once felt secure with him. The worrying never stops.
I feel like an idiot for being loyal to him. I've read the article and some comments. I have been with my guy over 7yr. We have had ups and downs. He has been honest from the beginning. And we have love and trust but I'm not unrealistic I know he most likely won't leave. I've met other guys and dates. Add to the mix another married man. They know about each other. I love them both for different reasons. As long as you can live with it and know what's real.
I really live this man but just the mixed feelings killing me He shows so much interested in me I have been with this married man for a year now.. I am just emotionally drain right now I want him for my self but its just taking to long.. I love him do want to leave because of his situation but its hard to do.. I'm just having the bunch of mixed feelings right now My case was different cos I met him single. We've been in relationship for almost 3 years then he decided to go for arranged marriage.
I was so broke and so down that he just decided so fast without thinking of our relationship. I can't blame his culture and his family's plan for him. So, I still keep in touch with him even after his marriage and he is giving response as well that he still loves me and don't want to leave me.
I know it's unfair for me now, knowing that He has wife now and I am waiting for him to come back to me. In your position, I think I might have asked the spell caster to make my cheating husband's manhood go gangrenous and drop off. Hi Ladies, i have been looking foe woman who have been the same road as i am taking now. I have been knowing this guy since last June and dating him now for 9 months. We have alot in common but what i think i love most about him is that he's been honest from jump.
We live 3 hours away so we don't really see each other much. Yet we talk everyday. He has 2 kids with his wife and they have been married 17 years. I have never dated a married man before and i told him i had no intentions on being with one!! Totally against everything i stand for but what do you do when he's everything you need. He calls my kids and ask them how there day went at school, keeps them in line, sings to them, and they love him but never met him. I on the other hand love him but i do see other guys to keep me from falling head over heels.
He dont tell me sweet nothings but i can always tell through his actions that he do love me as well. I have nothing but respect for him and he has respect for me. He says its ok if i see other guys but i know for fact that was a whole lie. I think man i need to really let this go cause he never will.
He's saying and doing more each day to prove to me that he cares for me and i don't even think he realizes it. I love him but i know im going to have to let it go.phocafsoundvab.tk

He thinks we will still remain friends but i don't know if i could. Or she sees a relationship with a married man as a way of validating her own attractiveness see I can attract a married man, who is risking so much to be with me. And no the guy does not respect his wife and family, or he would not be diverting funds and time away from their family. My ex husband left after over 9 years, but it did not work out with the mistress or wife number 2, so I guess you could say he had a big dose of karma and to be quite honest the mistress did me a big favour, as I think I am much better off without this cheating scumbag.
I am trying hard not to judge but please help me understand why do you do it? There are plenty of hot,decent single men out there waiting for a good woman to love them,what's the allure of dating a married man? Its not like they would ever love you,leave their wives for you,treat you as an equal or marry you,so what's the allure? Believe me ladies,I know how hard finding a great guy is,but they are out there. I will not judge any woman who chooses to do that because that's life things happen, but you need to be strong if you want to play.
And hell ya the single life! I love coming home whatever the time i want! No difference even if he threatens with suicide. If he really does commit suicide, then it's better he stay dead instead of continue to insult my IQ. So it all depends how ruthless you can be and how much you want to love yourself.
The Truth about Married men having extra marital affair
Here is a quote from Coco Chanel: As long as you know men are like children, you know everything! And lastly, Why the heck did I receive an email from HubPages editor about "How to be single and mingle"? What the hell does my status have to do with your editor or whatever whoever writes? Either some staff saw my comment and sent me that promotion, or a data analysis machine sorted me to that promotion.
Either way my privacy feels invaded and I will thus unsubscribe from all the feeds from this website. But I will find a way to reply my dear Diana since she cares to be curious about my story. So now, let's see if the author has the ball to let public of this comment evil laughing here hahaha. I'm really glad I came across this article. I'm currently in a relationship with a married man for around half a year. He made it clear from the beginning that he's married and has one son but not having sex anymore with his wife for years.
He said that he loves her "as a family", not in a romantic way, and they have chosen to not get divorce because of the son. He also said I'm not the first "girlfriend" he had; there were two other women before me. I felt happy in the beginning because I know that he loves me even until now. But then my happiness turns to guilt when he begins to spend more of his time with me; even keeps texting me all day and calling me when he's home. Also, he never hesitates to show his feeling in public area, such as holding my hand or kiss and hug me. However, when I talked to him about the future, he said firmly that he cannot leave his family.
I wouldn't lie that this relationship puts me in a dilemma. I feel left behind and lonely every time he comes home to his family, but at the same time I feel guilty if he spend more time or money with me than his family. All this feeling makes me unhappy, I can't feel the joy of the relationship. I openly talked about all my feelings to him and said that I want to break up. Come to think of it, I had asked for break up twice, but he always cried and begged me to stay in his life because he said he loved me so much and that I was the gift that he's got in his ruined life.
I don't see why he doesn't want to let me go. What's the point of having this kind of relationship? Last month I got pregnant, and he immediately asked me to abort the pregnancy. I was really really depressed, it made me so stressed and had miscarriage. It was my first pregnancy in my life, not a very nice experience. He was there, took care of me 24 hours for weeks until my health condition was better and no further doctor check up needed. I have a feeling that maybe, maybe he really loves me, but he's too comfortable with his married life to sacrifice anything for our relationship.
Now I am here sitting alone, typing on this comment while he's at home with his family. I am now thinking of seeing other guys behind his back, but I don't know if it is fair for him, because he's always truthful to me as far as I know. But the part of this article: Man will not tell the thruth because they know but that not all women are wlling to date a married man.
Thats right but its the choice for the other woman to make. I dated a married man for 3 years. He lied about being married with children and about his age. Im a woman and i know the diffrent between a body of a man and a boy.. And i was like or you shure you have told me the thruth about your age? The next day i went back i saw my picture was delete. I told him i want her picture to delete also. I ask Again and he said he dont know how to remove pics from fb. That i should do it. From that point i start getting susspicious.
So i started with his emails.. Because the woman i saw on his fb was not even his wife. I saw messages between him and that woman. I was in shock. I felt like my heart has dissapeared. At that point he was not only fooling me. From my country and his country. The wife is leaving in his country. Because he had enough time for me. I cofronted him the same day he was shocked also.
I told him when I ask question you better answere them because if i want to know something i will.. I can go far so he appoligized, kneel down telling me his wife is leaving in his country and he lied about his age because of his paper to stay in this country. But i didnt ask because i knew the whole story already. Then he start crying he wanted to tell me But everytime there was something else and because i was sick he was affraid of the affect on my condition.
I mean 3 whole years. I was not sick when you first met me. But after that i stopped trusting him. When i was calling And he didnt answere, when he was on his phone. When he was touching me i couldnt stand it. I started nagging for the little things. And so i decided to stop the relationship. So this was my story. My advice to yall ladies out there, be carefull and think before dating a man.
For now i will enjoy my single life. As someone commented before, this is just going to be a fling. I have no interest in interfering in his family at all, well if you want to criticize what I want to do I have to say I am a human and thus should be allowed to follow my heart sometime. I have no desire for him to divorce his wife at all. He actually once hinted to me about a future. Indeed, my ambition is too big to be trapped by a man or two, even if he or them might be the love of my life, in different ways. So I am going to be stubborn and thus impolite to you: I am going to use my own money to fly to see him.
GZZ, girl, don't do it. Thank you for the sweet compliment. Also, your comment made my day. I really like the way you write, GlendaGoodWitch. You are blunt and your writing is logical and organized, but also humorous and entertaining. I have been struggling in an affair myself trying to remain faithful to "him" but the darkness and loneliness began to consume me.
I have been hanging out with one of my exes now and it is MAJOR relief and we are surprisingly reconnecting wonderfully and realizing we are more compatible than we once believed. I realize - and especially upon discovering your article - I am a truly free individual and it is hypocritical and presumptuous of a married man to demand fidelity from his mistress. Think and act like a man for happiness, as well as the putting the shoe on the other foot analogy helped me immensely I am now beginning to reach clarity, I think, I just feel so scared to end it.
Lynn67, I know I'm probably too young to offer much validation and probably also too active into other people's business, but there are some lines from the movie Last Night:. I've been seeing a married man for 3 years now. He sees me at two breaks at work, 30 mins once a week in the morning and that's it.
Never buys me lunch or dinner, never takes me out, no gifts , yet I do counless gifts and things for him. He will never leave his wife of 20 years although she never has sex w him. He has become hateful since he has a lot of pain and medical issues.
He says he loves me. Can't let me go but sometimes I wish she would find out so it would be over. Met a man at work who is twice my age, but we have an incredible connection that we just can't seem to ignore. He's been married for 30 years and has always been truthful about it. I want out before anything serious happens we have only kissed once , and this article really helped. Haha i find it so bulls eye. Then you will probably need to wait maybe 2 years or more I think. I will come back here to post if I have updates.
Rules for Dating a Married Man
You're a romantic like me. You don't want to have regrets. I really hope things work out for you and you don't get more hurt. Let me know how things go. God this is such a paranoia. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever find that one that truly cares for me. This feels like the one thing that I just have to do. There will be no future, but I have to do this to save myself.
My recommendation is to not do it. I know you think now that you can stay emotionally detached and you are not interested in anything more than a fling. Trust me, you will be hurt. You will get even more attached and waste your youth pining for this person who is using you. I know you think he loves you, and maybe there's part of him that cares about you and I know you think you're different or this is different, and I'm sure you're a beautiful, young, intelligent woman, but please you will be hurt.
Think of it this way, if he really loved you, he would visit YOU. Don't make excuses for him. Look at all these long posts! We all have some kind of being with a married man stories, don't we? I met a man in Europe while I was studying abroad. I don't want to specify the country for privacy reason I was working on publishing a paper and needed someone more experienced.
He agreed to help and then we got closer. I only stayed in that country for 2 days so we mainly kept in contact via Internet afterwards. We stayed in contact for about a year and then the communication gradually stopped. I had a American boyfriend a little older than me but eventually broke up. I am very young, still a college student in the U.
He is much much older than me, definitely older than double of my age. And I know from the beginning that he is married. We had skyped and I can see the ring. But he is just so mature, charming, and intellectual stimulating. I think it is the very first time that I realize I love someone. I think he loves me too, from many details.
Although we are not in contact, I feel I just know it from a woman's sixth sense. I've been thinking working hard after graduation to save money to fly to Europe to see him. I've read the following posts which all seem to come to the conclusion that being a mistress will only hurt you. But I'm not interested in his wife. Indeed, I am not interested in anyone's ex I also have no interest in wrecking his family. I think he has kids with his wife I want to go all the way to see him just for the sake of love. If it hurts afterwards, then let it hit. I am not afraid. I am thinking about doing a master's degree in his city.
I don't know how this will change the outlook. I dated a married man casually for 3 years. In that time I met his really yummy younger brother. We spent a lot of time together and both knew we had chemistry. But he had a serious girlfriend at the time. He always told me he thought I was too good to be involved in an affair. I listened to him and broke it off with his brother shortly after he left town.
The thing is he also asked me to marry him that night. How do I say yes? What do we say to his brother? I suggested we can all meet for drinks before the gig, either in the city or at my place. I got kind of pissed with that realization and decided to go forward and just resign before he asks me. I can't even explain why or what was I thinking at that time.
I even got a chance of rolling my eyes over picture of him on the beach, which was clearly taken by his wife. I never asked him about moving out or a divorce, I only asked him to finally talk with me. Actually I've asked about that 35 times only this year. He always agreed, but obviously never did it. Now I fell he moved out because it was easier to have sex with me that way plus he didn't have to come home late and make up excuses what a clever boy.
But first I discovered he's spending weekends with his wife and nope, not because of the kid, but some event. At this point I got mad, because he asked me a ton of question and I never kept a secret from him about meeting somebody or going somewhere. So I was mad and pregnant. I decided to terminate the pregnancy, and informed him about it. His father started to loose his health over that brother situation - I was supportive.
I never said a bad word about him changing plans last minute to go who knows where to save his unstable brother yet again. I gave him some advice how to deal with that guy, but he ignored it now I think it's because my advice would actually do the job and therefore deprive him of his favourite excuse. I don't want to sound mean here, I know everybody has his own problems. He met my parents as a friend, I cannot tell them the truth and some of my friends, I met none of his.
I just stopped talking to him. I just got fed up with hearing all the same empty words and seeing no actual action or caring. Moreover, there is not a thing to go back to, don't you think? Maybe the circle has closed, soon he's going on holidays wit his son, I wouldn't be surprised if the wife joined, too. He's lease is ending this month, so the doors of coming back home are wide open.
Only this time I really don't care anymore. Maybe not being in love saved me from feeling pain, but all this months made me feel just empty. Even though I can recall the good moments, I only feel this was a complete waste of time. So for all the girls thinking about being a mistress: You can be super chill, supportive and have your own life going on, but you'll still be drained, sad and used.
Let the guy show you he's serious, before you even consider sleeping with him. I know some says. The best cure for a break up is to build self esteem. Be sucessful and bla bla bla. But J's wife is a professional working woman. Come from a good background family. And she still got cheated.
But i seriously losing faith and dont trust man anymore. So Im busy building my career for me n my baby. Later im gonna fly away from this relationship. Because i know this relay is not going anywhere. I dont even want j to leave her wife because. I cant trust him. Been dating a married man J with no kid for almost 1 year..
I have 1kid with previous husb. Been dating J since i was married, but we had problematic marriage as hes a gay. After i divorce he started paying for my house and bill. He never lie to me abt his wife. He admit they have sex but seldomly. They trying to have kid. At the same time, some guy w is trying to get my attention.
J knows about W. I am happy with J. I have my own work, kid and nice good sex. I dont even have to take care of him all the time. Im younger than him so many years. Sometimes J said wanna have kid.
But i have trauma to have a kid as my previous husband didnt care abt me and baby.. Sometimes i snaped and pushing J's away. Because im feeling guilty and at the same time i dont want to leave him because im comfortable right now. I love the sex I've been dating a married man for 2 months. He also told me that he and his wife are not truly in love even they're living together for over 13 years. I didn't believe him at first but day by day, he always cares and make me feel special that no one can do and i realized that i fell for him truly. I'm trying not to bc I don't want to become a third person.
But he's too amazing, he's wonderful I love him more and more even i'm trying not to. Please let me know how to cut him out of my life. I don't want to become a home-wrecker. I've been seeing a man now who has been married for 20 years. His wife knows but doesn't want to leave.
He has 2 kids and we still have to sneak around. Everyone knows, it's the elephant in the room. I needed such an article which is motivating and non judgmental. Been dating a man for 6months now and he swears that he is not sleeping with his wife at all,that they are only raising their 9Year old daughter till she is of age to handle the situation but i just dont belive that he loves me.
