I am in my late 30s, still single and with no kids. I’ve only had two serious relationships that lasted six and nine months, respectively. I date once in a while and met this guy my age in April. It was spur of the moment but I gave him my number. I knew from the start that he’s not the serious kind. I don’t even know his status. I rejected him initially, but his persistence in sending me text messages made me go out with him on a date, and eventually we had sex. I could not resist him, not because I love him, but because I felt that I was already trapped in this kind of situation and had hoped that this will be it. Two months later, his wife learned about the affair and I ended it, which he willingly accepted.
