With millions of people on this planet there should never be a reason for you to try and get involved with a married guy. Trust me, there are plenty of great single men out there who would be lucky to date you! If you don’t want to believe me that’s fine. Just keep reading below and you’ll find 10 really important reasons to back up what I’m saying!
1) He’s never going to be ‘truly’ yours
This doesn’t imply that you are “property” or that you actually “belong” to someone. We’re all independent and entitled to an identity that is solely defined by our relationship. But, the fact is that this man will never be able to truly dedicate himself to you. No matter how happy you make him, the fact remains that he’s married. He’s got someone else to think about.
2) People are going to judge you
Whether you want to believe it or not, people talk behind your back. No matter what the situation is, people are always talking. If you’re known to be running around with a married man then the gossip around town about you probably won’t be the best. They may not know all of your situation, but they will know enough to call you a home-wrecker.
3) You can never ensure whether he’s telling you the right story
Have you ever obsessed or gone crazy over where a guy might be? Prepare yourself to feel that way on a constant basis if you plan on starting to date a married guy. Every story has two sides and the fact that your relationship is likely being kept secret it means you will never know any other side of the story aside from the one he’s telling you.
4) You will always remain a ‘secret’
It’s hard to talk with friends about a man you’re dating who’s also married. Plus, you can’t be seen with him many places in public. You can’t even take pictures together with fear of being caught! Don’t even begin to think about meeting his family and friends. He isn’t going to let anyone know about you simple because they all know he’s married.
5) You both might be in love with each other, but you’re the only who is alone
Maybe you think this married man really loves you. Maybe you think he’s the one guy who makes you feel things you never knew were possible. Still, when everything is said and done he’s going to go back home to his wife and leave you in an empty bed wishing he were there.
6) There will never come a time when you get to wake up next to him every day
This is where you need to really start thinking about the end goal of your relationship. Do you think you can accept only seeing him for short periods of time which are most likely during the day? Or, would you rather have a lasting relationship that gives you the ability to sleep next to the man of your dreams each and every night of the week?
7) You will constantly have to make excuses for him
Prepare yourself to start making up excuses like “he doesn’t actually love her” or “she never made him happy.” This is the kind of stuff you’re going to be telling friends when they question and judge exactly why you’re spending time with a man who’s already taken.
8) He will constantly have to make excuses for himself
Don’t be surprised if you hear lines like “I never felt happy with her” or “I don’t really love her.” He still has a ring on his finger and he still goes home to that woman each night. You’ll hear these excuses often if you start messing around with a married man.
9) He just isn’t faithful
If he can cheat on his current wife then what makes you think he can’t cheat on you? How are you any different from the other women that are currently in his life? If a man has made vows to someone and then breaks them it’s a clear sign that he will probably always be a cheater.
10) You deserve better
Every girl deserves someone who wouldn’t think twice about telling the entire world how much they love her. You deserve someone who hopes to spend all of his days and nights with you. Not to mention, you deserve someone who knows how to be loyal to his girlfriend.
If you didn’t think messing around with a married man was such a big deal before then maybe this has taught you something new. If there are any other reasons that come to mind and you don’t see them listed here then please comment!
