    dating a married man?

    He will never be yours, even if he does leave his wife for you. Your actions say nothing good about you. You will have a lot of explaining to do if you ever start a new relationship with a single man. Don't be surprised if you can't find one.

    Umm~ Dating a married man is not a good thing. But sometimes we do not do things to hurt another. Sometimes feelings, attractions happen. And you do not have to look for it.
    But I have always said to me for. If I should ever date a married man. Knowing he is married or not. I would never exspect for him to leave his wife for me. That would be not saying much for me. If he left for himself. That is another thing.
    I would not want him reminding me of what he left for me.. You know. Leaving any situation for one's self is alright with me. I am down with that~

    I agree ... but you don't have to act upon them. I would never, ever date a married man no matter what.
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    What if you don't know they are married?? For example they lied and say they are single or they are seperated or recently divorce but really they are still married and just lying to everyone involved!!
    fcl replied to Lefty2121's response:
    Don't you think there would be tell-tale signs? Not being able to go to their place. Not being allowed to call them at home. Only being able to see them on specific days. Not meeting any of their friends and family. The list is endless. No one sign means anything but when there are several there is cause for concern.

    What I meant was that I wouldn't *knowingly* date a married man and if I found out that the guy I was seeing was married I'd drop him like a hot brick for two very good reasons:

    1. He's married, for goodness sake!

    2. I cannot abide liars and would want nothing to do with him.

    Exactly been there, back again. What will it take for these men to realize we mean business. I hate to have to call Cheaters.
