Dear Ask Y and X,
I love your site, I first saw your writings on Brownsista(www.brownsista.com) and thought how great it is to talk or secretly vent about real life situations.
Any way I have a situation I want to share and I hope you post it so I can see what others opinions are and get their comments.
I'm a 33 year old woman in love with a man already in a relationship. He isn't aware of my feelings I don't think. I met him through a friend at a party. We saw each other a few times again at other functions and eventually exchanged numbers. We began talking on the phone a lot about everything, he is a fun person to talk to. He told me he has 2 kids and he also has a girlfriend(not the mother of his children). I also have two kids so I suggested he attend a birthday party with me and bring his kids. Since then we hang out all the time, at least 4 to 5 times a week. He is fun and exciting to be around, and we can talk about anything. Now I am wanting more of his time all the time and want more of a relationship rather than friendship with him. He is kind, funny and sexy. Why didn't I meet him sooner.
Well one day I decided I would tell him my feelings so I stopped by his house. I knew he was there because his car was there, but there was also another car in his driveway. I didn't think anything of it so I rang the door bell. He answered and had a surprised look on his face, like oh shit. It seems that other car was his girlfriend. That just made me so mad to see him there with her. He should be my man, I can treat him better. Plus we have a lot in common. Although we don't speak of her much, he hasn't said that he wants to leave her and has never spoke negatively of her. But I figured we were getting closer so eventually she would be out the picture. Well he asked me to leave and said I shouldn't have just came by like that. I told him I tried to call but he didn't answer. Guess it was like when he's with me and don't answer, I just assume it's her calling. My feelings were so hurt, I just cried and said I thought we were going to be together. Again he just asked me to leave.
Now that his girlfriend has figured I am the woman he's been spending so much time with I think she's mad and is leaving him. He didn't say too much just that we could no longer be friends because it's affecting his relationship. I told him let her leave and be with me and that I love him. He said maybe us being friends wasn't such a good idea. But I don't believe that he wants to stop seeing me. I think he loves me too.
What should I do next?
