Oops! Accidently put this in the "off topics" area. Trying to move it here.

I've been looking for a place like this. Oh, goodness, where to start....5 months ago, my husband took a job in another state and left us behind to sell the house. Well, for years I've had this male friend. He's married, too. I've always found him attracted, but never thought anything would come of it. After the holidays, I needed help moving some furniture back, so I asked him over. We had lunch. Moved the furniture. Then started talking about how I didn't want to move in the first place. As we were talking, he gave me a backrub. At one point, I started crying and he held me. After that, he gave me a hug. And there we were, just staring at each other. I think I made the first move - I kissed him. I think we kissed 3 times that afternoon. The next day the e-mails started flying between us. He's come over every Friday since then for a few hours. Yes, we've moved WAY beyond kissing ;) and are having a wonderful time. The hard part is, I'm so happy, and have no one to share it with. SO it's wonderful to find this group....Oh, I should also mention, we both have kids, and won't be leaving our marriages. So, we know it will end, when I have to move. :( That will be a sad day!

Welcome Stealaway! I'm glad you found this board - a safe place (if you don't share personal details like names, places, etc.) with many wonderful non-judgmental members to share, laugh & cry with. There are so many different personalities and experiences here and it's great to get different insights - always honest, and sometimes not what we want to hear though it's given as "tough love". Sometimes we get disruptive posts - just ignore those and move on; if it's offensive, use the link in the right-side beige/grey? box in the post you are reading to "report a violation" (attacking, language, etc.).

It's great to hear you are happy in your EMA! Know we'll enjoy reading your good news, but also know we're here to hold your hand when it's not so good. Feel free to jump in anytime with your own support or two cents.

Looking forward to reading more from you. Welcome!

Hi and welcome! Glad to have you among us. Everyone has a unique story and this is a wonderful group to get to know. Stick around and you *will* come to rely on them. We're here for you now, when things are great, and we will be here for your impending move, when perhaps it will be not-so-great.
