I've been sexually involved for many years with the same man.
The sex is passionate albeit fairly infrequent and we are definitely emotionally involved on some level but we are completely incompatible. I'm a happy loner and, well ... he's not. He also has mental health issues that are just too too much for me. We're both in our late 40's and frankly, I'm over the whole marriage (been there) or even living together thing. I'm telling you this part because it illustrates that I don't feel I'm wasting my time and energy on someone who's not Mr. Right. I don't feel I need a Mr. Right.
The only problem I have with this relationship is that he's cheating on some one. I feel terrible for the other woman but it's not like I want him to leave her for me. The only thing worse than not hearing from him in long periods of time would be hearing from him every day.
Oh, and I have to say I feel a little selfish and immature.
So, what do I do?
