My secrets for dating a married man
It must be, or there wouldn't be so much infidelity.Acknowledging this inevitability means my boyfriend and I can deal with it from within our relationship instead of pretending we'll only ever have eyes (and maybe hands and lips and everything else) for each other.

Trust is knowing someone will come back, not believing they will never leave.
Small children who regularly see their parents going out and returning are more secure than those who aren't used to being left alone.
Having an open relationship has never been my goal, but I'm not going to bury my head in romantic sand.
The truth is that staying monogamous is a challenge.
Even knowing Charles was juggling multiple partners, I never doubted how important I was to him, because he never left an information gap for me to fill in.
