It’s a self-inflicted wound that drains the life out of you, no matter what rationalization you (or he) come up with to defend the relationship.It’s no secret that I take marriage, even a marriage on life support, very seriously. It was an in-between area that could have only gone one of two ways. I guess you could say the pieces of the puzzle just didn't fit at the time. Then you'll know that it's a time where huge changes meet hope and excitement for the future.Don’t let yourself be charmed by the image of this man as someone who would delay his own happiness (in the form of finalizing the divorce) for the sake of sparing his wife’s feelings. But the truth is, he’s most likely still married because he doesn’t want a divorce yet.

Dear Renita, I met a man online who I think is truly remarkable.
It's easy to whip up a few seemingly innocuous lines, slap your most flattering photos up there and swipe away. We spent hours in bed, talking, hooking up, and breaking for more conversation. He was perfectly imperfect, perfect in his imperfections. Him: trying to navigate how to co-parent while figuring out I discovered that he loved his son most of all. In that twisted way, I started to fall for him, despite everything I knew about him. I wanted to move forward without being hung up on my last relationship. I expected it to be easy, and I wanted him to help me get over my ex. Side chick status until tomorrow." Maybe it was the way we crossed into territory when he said they weren't sleeping together anymore (although he was spending some nights at the house.) Maybe it was when I blushed at the thought of him. Maybe it was the way he was with his son that made me love him. It was the way I knew he was lying to me about how their relationship really was, because we all know that things are more complicated than they appear.
If you come across as a normal human being and not an over-sexualized creep during the first conversation, well, then you are already ahead of the curve. I knew that I was willingly making myself into a sidepiece. I knew better than to sleep with him, but I did it anyway– until I couldn't do it anymore. I wanted to find someone that felt good to be around.
