When you learn after a few years you were the other woman. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be the other woman in any man’s life. But thanks to Facebook you learn things that you never think you would. For two and half years I thought I was the only lady in one guy’s life. But oh, how wrong was I. But now being older and wiser I look back and see all the red flags that I didn’t see then. Like I said earlier thanks to Facebook I discover that I wasn’t the only one. Facebook has this great thing where people who are in your contacts also show up as people you know. Being me I love to scroll through and see if there are people I may know. Well there he was and after all those years he told me he didn’t have a facebook well there he was on and he had been on facebook for years. There was red flag number one. Im thinking to myself how was I so dumb to not see this lie. So since he is there and well all women like to be nosey in some way or anthoher I just had to look and see what he had been up too. Then that is when the truth was then right there in my face and all those things I didn’t feel should have been red flags filled my head and all I wanted to do was cry. Being as that the main guy in my life was about to be home I held back the tears that wanted to flow down my face. How was I the other woman for so long and never saw it right in front of my face. Then while holding the tears back all the toughts were becoming never ending. All the questions that should have been ask there were now being answer.
Why was it so hard to make plans with him for more than one night?
He had a girlfriend/ wife to go home to
Why did he always tell the person he was on the phone with in a off to the coner conversation that he was working late or was out of town with me?
It was the lie he told so he could be with me
Why were the texts he sent me always so short and not personal?
Some was probolly close by and he didn’t want it to be made that he had another person in his life.
Why did he make promises and not keep them?
His way of making me want to stay.
By then the tears are just flowing down my face and the most amazing guy walks in the door and I forget that I was ever someones second choice and I am finally number one in someone very specials life to me.
So don’t be like me and be someone’s second choice.
