So you think you know what being a mistress is like

26 10 2009

So you think you know what being a mistress is like. It’s a high, going around with someone else’s woman, isn’t it? Imagine the excitement. The secret trysts. The triumph of knowing that you have what the other person doesn’t. The power to draw your woman – who is not really your woman – away from the legitimacy of the other relationship. The sexiness of keeping her interested in you though she’s supposed to be settled. The knowledge that if you want to, you can go off with someone else, and she can’t do anything about it, because she didn’t choose you.

So you really think you know what it’s like to be a mistress. Let me tell you then. Let me tell you about the leftover time you wait for. Let me tell you how you spend the whole day for that call to come, and sometimes it doesn’t. How you arrange your day with ifs to make it free for her when she can give you the five minutes in between. Or maybe, I can tell you about the other times, the times you have to stay away because you don’t want to see her with someone else. Or the pain it takes not to ask for more, because you have no right. Let me tell you about the pain of watching her walk away. And the pain of not being there for her.

And now you can tell me what being a mistress is like.

I think all you have said – secretiveness of the affair, possessing the power of attracting someone else’s woman, the restrains on meeting and longing for her etc. – plus much more from the part of the two parties involved in this relationship make having a mistress and being a mistress more alluring and adventurous….

A thought provoking piece

It’s so beautifully true that it almost hurts to read. I wonder why we let ourselves into these situations knowing full well that no good will come of it. I still have no answer. It’s only been once, but that once is torture I’m still living with, so long after the damage was done. Thanks for this. 🙂

oooooooh the emo.

If there is ever a post about a relationship, you are so ready to claim that is has happened to you too.

BTW how many women/men have really penetrated you, emotionally of course, and hurt you and left you for the dying and given you pain that you want to die each day ?

There can only be misery in relationships like that as every single moment that you are together you are hurting someone else. The only thing that will bring even a remote sense of happiness is to have a clean break. No doubt it will hurt like mad but sometimes been hit by a train is far better than been poked in the eye by a needle everyday for a lifetime.

someone said “when you marry your mistress, you create a job vacancy.”

to be a successful mistress would require great strength of mind and the willingness to take some calculated risks, for love and/or money. mistresses can wield immense power and control but rarely gain social acceptance. them’s the breaks.
