  • Well I made out with a married man once at a club. But, I was really really really drunk and didn't know he was married until one of my friends told me the next day. Eww he was old too!

  • No I have never been the other women and I never will. I have more respect for myself than to be someone's bit on the side.

  • Yes I did twice. I was young and dumb. The first I had no idea he was married and the second one I knew after I fell head over heels for him and couldn't let go. I would never do it again.

  • Not that I know of. I always looked for signs of a wedding ring that had just been taken off. But I never saw it. As far as him having a girlfriend, there is no telling. But if I knew a guy was unavailable, I wouldn't go after him. Funny story though, I was 16 and had been dating this guy who semed perfect. We were together for a few months and one day I had an email from some girl. She said she read all the emails I had been sending her boyfriend and wanted to know what was going on. Well, he had been dating both of us and lying to us about it. We dumped the guy and became great friends.

  • Yes, when I was young and really stupid. I knew it wasn't going anywhere. I feel terrible for the first woman especially because I think the guy is closet gay. But he was going through the motions of a straight life because of his family.
    Once I was ready to move on and stop the stupidity, mostly because I met my now, husband, he got really mad at me.
