Having a mistress had never been something that had intially crossed my mind, but there she was – beautiful, charming and alluring.
We had met at a party, and it was love at first sight. It was a whirlwind romance, and before I knew it, I was deeply in love with her.
So I try to keep it a secret
I wanted to keep our relationship a secret, and I decided to save her number in my phone – but under a different name. So I chose the name of a guy I knew, thinking that my wife would never suspect a thing.
My wife uses my phone from time to time when she wants to call my parents and I was afraid that if a random female name pops up, she would get suspicious and look into my conversations.
In the end, my wife still found out
Little did I know that my wife was smarter than I gave her credit for. She had noticed the guy’s name which I had saved in my phone keep popping up, even late into the night.
During one of our arguments, she brought it out and confronted me about it.
She said that she already suspected long ago as the ‘guy’ cannot be so free to even keep message me in the middle of the night.
I didn’t know what to say and I quickly tried to make up a lie saying that it was my new colleague at work.
My wife did not believe me and asked me to show her the context of our conversation, and that is where I knew that it was game over.
We filed for a divorce shortly after, and I was left feeling guilty and ashamed.
My mistake of saving my mistress’ number under a different name had cost me my marriage. I had thought that it was a surefire way to keep my secret safe, but in the end, it had only made things worse.
