Dear Missie (short version of Mistress),
You probably expect this to be another article that condemns you and tells you you’re a horrible person for banging another woman’s husband. You probably expect me to urge you to leave him.
But I won’t say these things to you because I know you’ve heard them over and over again. How do I know? You see, Missie, I have been you before- once.
Actually, I have been you five times. I have dated five married men and this is the biggest regret of my life. I remember the one that I fell in love with. After he took me for a moonlit stroll on the beach, gazed into my eyes and whispered softly, ‘You are so beautiful’, I was hooked. It hurt like hell to leave him but I had to face the harsh reality that he never truly loved me. I dated another for money and another out of lust.
One day, I realized that I was special and beautiful. I realized that I deserved to have my own man. So I decided never to date another man who was wedded to another and I’ve never looked back. To tell you the truth, I have never felt better!
Baby girl, this is what I wish someone had told me back then when I was the other woman:
I wish you lots of love and happiness.
PS: If you’re reading this and you’re Missie, let me know what you think. If you’re reading this and you’re not Missie, I’d like to hear your comments on the matter (and is there anything you’d like to tell Missie yourself?).
