Relationships myths

You know those relationship myths where they are always a friend of a friend but usually aren't true?
Like the one night stand that turned into a relationship
or the guy that promised to leave his wife and did?

Ever know someone personally where it actually happened to?
I went to a small college and one of my instructors ended up with former student, had a affair, he and his wife did get divorced and he married the student and they are very happy about 20 years later.
Not saying I recommend that sort of thing, but I guess it worked out for all of them.

  • I don't know if those myths are true. Personally I've never known anyone that those myths worked on but I still have my hope I guess. You knowwww the one that "your booty call will end up falling in love with you over time because you're the one that spends lot of 'personal' moments with him". - _- not sure but looking forward to seeing what other people have to say lol

  • There was a girl that lived down the street whose dad left her mother for the 18 year old babysitter. They were married and the father and the babysitter had custody. The sitter was a checkout girl at the local grocery and always had hickies all over, it was so disgusting.

  • My dh left his wife "for me." really, he didn't leave for me, he left for himself. It was a personal decision that he made for his own happiness.

  • Mine and SO's relationship started as a one night stand and then turned into friends w/ benefits. We have now been together for 5 1/2 years and are getting ready to have our third child together.

    I have always believed that there are exceptions to every rule, but I wouldn't recommend doing it the way I did! I GOT LUCKY!!!!!!!
