The love affair with the married man starts with a man who married for the wrong reasons and thus never truly felt fulfilled in his commitment to the wife.
They probably have kids together and that is the only bond they share.
The ideal woman for this guy is the girl who has been hurt many times by single men and is in the stage where she just wants someone to love her.
After they meet and exchange conversation, he realizes what he has been missing at home and decides to pursue his happiness with her on the side.
Maybe it’s because he doesn’t feel strongly enough about you.
A man can be a good man – smart, funny, generous, thoughtful – but not be a good boyfriend or life partner for you.
Sure, I felt a little bit of distance, but since we never really fought, I just thought that it was par for the course. It never occurred to me that my girlfriend’s feelings about me had shifted – nor that they even COULD shift. Because you love him so much that you think his judgment is superior to yours.
