Coping with dating a married man
Think of what people will do when they are suddenly deprived of the person they love.
They will cross oceans, conquer nations, and work their fingers to the bone.
It is going to be tough, but you can deal with the emotions and ramifications of having been with another woman’s husband. End the relationship completely in order to survive emotionally.
This will likely be the hardest part as you have probably developed strong emotional ties because you have had an affair vs. Break up with him, even if he has promised to leave his wife for you.
Despite the best of intentions, you may suddenly realize one day that the "casual" fling has turned into a full-blown love affair.
Are you a struggling single or pursuing an "unavailable" man?
Learn to break free from destructive patterns in your life.
Don't begin dating immediately as you need to work through the emotional upheaval of the affair.
Let yourself get angry and cry over the break-up just as you would had it been a relationship with a single man. Your best friends likely knew of your involvement with the married man, so let theirs be the shoulders you lean on at this time.
