I am a 40-something single woman interested in dating single, heterosexual men yet lately I seem to meet more than the usual of those who are Dating While Married (DWM).This DWM label fits quite a few—some of whom I have known for years.
Seku says, “Marriage is a great club to belong to say ‘I’m married’ and flash the ring.” He says he meets many men whose “intention is to be exclusive, but it’s not working for them.
They may be losing their libido or desire for life.” But he also points out a number of reports that 70% of divorces are initiated by women.
I noticed there were a lot of feminine touches around the flat. The minute you start talking to someone who admits they’re married, alarm bells should be ringing.
It doesn’t matter what state their relationship is in – they have committed themselves to someone else, but are choosing to stray.
This time last year, I’d just moved to the big city, and was at a posh political event in Westminster, sipping awful red wine with the Eton crowd. ‘We broke up a few months ago, but I’m ready to move on.’I wasn’t convinced – after he admitted they’d been together for a few years, and had moved in together, I knew it would take longer than that to get over her.
I had no idea how I got there, and I noticed a guy on the sidelines who looked how I felt. If he couldn’t even get rid of her stuff, how could he be ready for someone new?
If he chooses you, he needs to terminate his existing relationship, process the emotions that will accompany that – and then maybe you’ll consider a relationship with him.
A recent dinner with a past acquaintance has brought me to a place where I now know a conversation on why-I-even-dressed-up-for-a-dinner-with-a-man-I-had-no-idea-was-married-until-we-were-well-into-dessert is very much needed.
In situations where people who are monogamous say ‘O.k., we’ll be able to work it out’ and their partner alludes to ‘I know what you’re saying, but I’m going to start seeing other people anyway,’ they typically do not succeed.”For those who present with a willingness to try open relating, their reasons vary but may often include incompatible sex drives.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
