A letter from the other woman

Q. I spent the last few months in an intimate relationship with a married man who I work with and have known for many years. We’ve always gotten along great, and I must admit that I was taken by surprise by his sudden interest in me. I did not see it coming and I reciprocated after some hesitation.

Things then took off. I heard all of the stories about the problems at home. Some I believed and some I didn’t. I even caught him in a few lies. Given the circumstances, I was not surprised. It’s obvious he lies. . .
