My husband confessed to sleeping with his female coworker after she dared him to.
He (36) came forward and confessed to me about it 2 days ago. He said that it happened 4 months ago. His new female coworker (27) was “harrassing” him at work and being all flirty and over chatty with him.
He said he tried so hard to draw the line with her, put an end to her harrassing texts and comments but then he said she cornered him and “dared” him to sleep with her.
And kept nagging him saying he “couldn’t” handle her if he tried. He said he didn’t how and why he acted the way he did, but said that she pushed a button in him and he let her get in his head.
He said that that very same day (I know which day it was) he found himself in her place and one thing led to another and it just happened.
He swore he had no control over what he did and that he in that moment felt like he wasn’t himself and now he’s deep in guilt.
He admitted going to therapy for the past 2 months to try to overcome this but he said he can’t do that without coming clean about what he did.
In the middle of all my shock and disappointment he’s begging me to help him rebuild my trust in him and give him a chance.
He also offered to quit his job if that’s what I want, but I don’t know. I did not give an answer I’m just still in shock I guess.
Don’t know how to handle this. Although I haven’t seen him since the confession he hasn’t stop trying to speak to me.
