Saturday, September 24, 2011 ~ On Becoming (Being) a Serial Cheater (aka a Slut)
I wish I could say I feel guilty...but I don't.
I wish I could say I'll stop...but I can't.
I use the excuse that I married too young to explain why I am a serial cheater. The problem, though, is that I was sleeping around before I got married and getting married in my early thirties as opposed to my early twenties probably wouldn't have made a difference to my ability to be faithful to one man.
Once a slut...always a slut.
My affairs have ended on many different notes... [more]
Drake and my husband (Dave) met about ten months ago, early on in the affair. Drake got me involved in Business X and within a few months, Dave was involved in it as well.
One positive outcome of being in Business X with Drake is that he and I have been on three conferences together (without Dave). I still laugh when I recall checking into a hotel with Drake at a conference in City X. We had arranged to share a room and another conference-goer was behind us. When Drake was done checking in, she gestured that I could go next, but Drake said to her, "I already checked us in." She looked dumbfounded, but said nothing.
This I found astounding - it speaks to the need for cheaters (IMO) to live on the edge. Why have a happy stable marriage if it means missing out on all the excitement of juggling secret lovers? The fear of getting caught just adds to the illicit excitement. That Luna Moon would bring her husband and her lover together shows not only does she like to live life on the edge, she likes to dice with the devil! I also think it's kind of cruel (on Dave), given that most affairs are discovered eventually.
I remember the first time the three of us got together. We met at a coffee shop. Drake is tall, lean, and very distinguished looking. Dave is short, stocky, and swarthy. Complete contrasts... [more]
Okay, this is a bit of a cheat because I'm just giving you another excerpt from the previous one. Sorry, but I realised we're on a bit of a theme here (husband Dave) so I thought I'd keep it all in one handy post. It's good that Luna Moon thinks her husband is a good guy (I guess that's why she's still with him) but once again she fits the pattern of all cheaters: I'm not physically attracted to my husband anymore, and I've found someone else. Sheesh, it's ben 25 years since I went to a gum - what hope for me now?
