In high school you get fumbling boys, confused about where to put their body parts in relation to yours, despite their over-eagerness for the proximity. In their twenties men want to have as much sex with as many different women as possible. Sometimes that will be you. Sometimes it won’t be.

Friday, July 25, In Love With A Married Man If you’re unfortunate enough to fall in love with a married man, turn and run the other way, just a fast as your legs can carry you. To continue down the path ahead is to walk willingly onto a dark, murky composed of little more than depression, heartbreak and futility. The longer you hesitate, the deeper you’ll sink, the more mud is likely to cling to you, and the harder it will be to finally escape and move on. Here are only a few of the many challenges and disadvantages you’ll experience if you become entangled in a relationship taken a solemn vow to love, honor and cherish another woman.

Inside the mind of the married man
And on top of that shock, I found out there was yet another woman, and both of them had been hanging on thinking he was going to marry them. None of us knew about the others.

However, contrary to popular belief, there are more “married men looking for married men” out there. Shocking as it may seem to some of you, this phenomena is not new.

There are numerous sites where “married men for married men” lurk. There are also online groups where these guys exchange their stories, get support for their dual lives and find the occasional hookup.
And then there are online chat rooms, gay hook-up sites, and gay apps that are also used by men who are married and “just having sex with men,” even though they’re “not gay. To this, I say, “Bless them! Society’s lack of education and understanding towards alternatives to heterosexuality has forced people, men and women, into hiding in mixed-orientation marriages.
