clean_slate Posted June 25, 2008 Share Posted June 25, 2008 I'm going to attempt to keep this as short as possible. Thanks in advance to all that read and respond. My girlfriend has a male friend at work, and lately they've been spending much more time together. Now, there's nothing wrong with her having friends, male or female. However, this guy is married and has a kid. He's also been giving small gifts to my girlfriend almost every day for quite some time (usually drinks or snacks). But then Saturday came and she kinda broke down. Apparently he went out of his way to not only buy her a book he thought she'd like, but they also went to a diner alone together after work. She did this without telling me in advance, and only told me after a bit of prodding; I called to see where she was and that she was alright. All this is well and good. Last night I made the mistake of looking through my girlfriend's cell phone. And it was a huge mistake. I found a text from her to this coworker-guy friend which said "You're the brightest light in my sky." He responded with something like "I only am reflecting the light you give off... You make me a better man." Does that seem like something people who are "just friends" would say? Needless to say, I am terribly hurt by her comment. I'm supposed to be the light of her life. She claims she loves me and wants to be with me forever, and yet she thinks another guy is the best part of her life. What do I do? Should I confront her about this or let it go? Do you think this constitutes an emotional affair? She says she would draw back from anyone she thought she was getting too close to. Am I overreacting? Link to comment
