How much money does an ex-urban nail tech make? One who also dabbles on the side in selling “vintage” clothes online? A very modest income I would think.
So of course it makes sense a woman like that would latch on to a man like B. who, as previously divulged, inherited multi-millions. I bet she is clinging to him with both hands and both feet. I bet she’s already moved in with him.
Perhaps a gold digger sort. Correct assessment, would you agree?
When I was having my affair with B. the subject of his wealth came up infrequently, almost never. He kept that part of himself hidden and he lived rather frugally. Certainly he never bought me any expensive gifts in all the years we were together.
I wasn’t after his money.
Now, a year past our break-up, B. is a ghost. He is hardly visible to me. He is an unwelcome apparition and what we shared together over 26 years is becoming increasingly hazy. But he is a ghost that doesn’t scare me; I see right through him, who he was with me, who he is now:
A ghost with a gold digger. Knowing what I know now about B.and his narcissistic pattern of Devour-Devalue-Dump, she should be afraid. Very afraid.
A former mistress (26 years, on-and-off) describes the good, the bad, and the ugly of her long-term affair. Conclusion: Affairs aren't necessarily destructive if kept in the correct perspective. Our experience enhanced BOTH our marriages.
That is, until his marriage ended and we began to love each other. When the affair morphed into a relationship, well, that's when it stopped being fun for me. We have now irrevocably split.
Lately I've been writing about the man who took his place in the "off" years of that 26-year-long affair. He was a dynamic sexual partner but we, too, now have irrevocably split.
These are our stories.
