Have any of you had this happen to you, and how did it make you feel?
This just happened to me for the second time in my life - a married man I met where I am studying was sending me inappropriate text messages basically fishing to "have an affair" with me. To be honest, it really upset me. First of all, it always makes me sad to hear of people cheating on their spouses, and it shakes a bit of my faith in the basic goodness of human beings. And secondly, I just felt so disrespected and dirty, insulted that he would think I would ever do that kind of thing.
This happened to me before, when I was 19 and he was 40 years old and I had a long-time boyfriend and has just planned a babyshower for his heavily pregnant wife. It was a bit of a traumatic experience for me - I had a panic attack actually. I just felt so disrespected. I wanted to throw up - especially since he first tried to discredit me by saying I was crazy and imagining things (he said explicitly sexual things to me so there was no room for misinterpretation) and saying I had been hitting on him (categorically untrue).
Anyway, I talked to someone about this and she felt surprised that both of these incidents really upset me. So I'm curious if anyone has had the same experience, or wants to share their experience with this sort of situation.
