World of Warcraft and online affairs

New to the message board...

Just found out that my husband is having an online affair that started through World of Warcraft. Still finding out details, but none of it good and still not sure if they met in person. Anyone else dealing with this??

This is not uncommon. My nephew met his now wife on World of Warcraft, she was in his guild (of course, they were both single, but they did life on opposite ends of the earth). According to him, lots of couples get together this way -- it is a fantasy world, not the real world, so they have to bring the relationship into the real world. Which they have done, quite successfully.

My H has had 3 emotional affairs in the last year...Not on the computer but via text messaging....

I know for certain that no sex was involved but it is still very very hurtful... I was here at home doing nice things for him every week, begging for attention while he was spending his time texting 3 other women 20 to 100 times per day..

He said he was just catching up...but I feel like it was courting other woman.... Since he erased every message I will never know what was said...But if it was sooo innocent than I guess he would not have erased messages right?

I often have nightmares about him texting other woman now...How am i supposed fo feel loved and cherished when he sooo heavily invested time in other woman besides his me?? It is a nightmare because we have 5 children and i love him dearly...But I am not sure if he deserves my love anymore....

I hope my story helped you..

You are in my prayers along with everyone else who has been cheated on.

Get you own computer and join the world. The adventures you will have will take your mind to a new place. Perhaps even meet him as you avatar. Interesting no?
