My affair didn't last through Quarantine. I and H failed in keeping things interesting during 4 months of very little in-person contact (just twice) and our texts, which were our lifeline was a struggle. The last straw was when after days and nights of anticipation counting the hours to meet, and texts the night before … Continue reading The End – Again
It is definitely getting harder and boring. There is just so much you can do when you are apart. I wasn't wired for LDR at all! Even the texts are getting repetitive and I am tired to say the same "I miss you" and to hear it back. I think would be okay if we … Continue reading QUARANTINE #DAY24
You know...I have an open marriage, so, it means that technically I don't have an affair. But H is married, or something close to a marriage as he has 3 kids with his partner.

Nao se pode ser tudo para todo mundo e eu aprendi isso muito cedo. Eu tive parceiros que eram maravilhosos companheiros de aventuras. Outros nao sabiam se comprometer, ou nao queriam. Ja tive quem fizesse plano a longo prazo, do tipo o que fariamos quando a gente se aposentasse. Uns que eram otimos com dinheiro, … Continue reading Muito mais que dois.
I am on my second marriage. My first husband passed away with Cancer 14 years ago and before he died, in our last chat he just said "it is all so simple, please don't complicate life, as I did" Those words were a course and a present, at the same time. Being true to ourselves … Continue reading “It is all so simple”
