Im Not even really the mistress. He is not married but may as well be, they have two kids. Him and I have had an off and on thing for 8 years but short periods of time. We gravitate back and forth over the years. This time, its been about 9 months but I honestly don't even see him hardly at all. Like I can count on one hand. But  He calls me like clockwork every single day, usually 2 time per day if not more. 

Once I realized there really is not going to be more - I started to get antsy. I do not get why you call me every single day if I am not even going to see you! Its taking up a lot of my emotional energy and it keeps me holding on. Yes there is a very heavy emotional bond. He says he calls because it makes us both happy and talking to me is important and brings  peace in his life. He says, I will make time to see you and I will call you tomorrow. And the same situation plays over and over. 

Do I just say STOP calling me? ( I tried that this week and he said, Ill call you tomorrow) I mean there are no beef between us, Im not mad. Just feel like this is going no where, then why call me every day. Or if I want the occasional in person visit do  I say hey, call me when you can see me and see what happens. ?

.....dead end......but scared to let go. Why do we keep gravitating back....

Well, I think a big reason is that you haven't decided to move on.

Hang on or move on. These are your two choices.

You are still hanging on.

When you decide to move on, you'll figure out a way to do it. Maybe you'll stop answering his calls. Maybe you'll block him. There are many ways to move on. All of them are valid and effective. The method in which you move on isn't important. The decision is.

Why are you participating in this?

Get a good profile and pics on quality dating apps and start talking to and meeting local single men in person who want what you want.

Your life seems lonely and empty if a phone call a day and a drive-by hookup occasionally is what you revolve around.

Join some groups and clubs, volunteer, get involved in sports and fitness.

Well, you kinda are. He is with someone else and has a kids with her. 

Dont you want something better from life? Or are you really hoping for him to leave his gf/wife for you? Because if you want something better you wil have to let this go completely.

Steps to take: It’s not likely he’ll be the one to stop so tell him you don’t want to be contacted again and then block and remove his contact. 

I’m sure it brings him peace to speak with you. But it is not mutual.

I actually appreciate the realness of your response.  I have not been talking about this with anyone and sometimes things sound very different in your own head.... I am making silly excuses and lowering myself and for some reason. I didnt want to see that.

When you find a man who cares about you, this clown will become wholly uninteresting.

Is this the same man?:

No, that was my actual long term boyfriend, that ended a year ago. This is someone who I let back in after my boyfriend left. Which - I guess makes sense that I was looking for comfort after feeling pretty low.

OK. Then he was a fallback. Now it's time to delete and block him for good.

Often sentimentality can keep us tied to relationships that are not in our best interests.

Figure out what you are getting out of this, and then make a plan to get that in some other way, including giving it to your Self.

What is it you want in your life?  Daily phone calls?  Or a man you can hug, kiss, cuddle with, go places with, have physical intimacy, spend birthdays and holidays with IN PERSON, share with your family?

It's up to you.

BTW, did your boyfriend know you were seeing this man behind his back?  In order to have the right person in your life you need to BE the right person.

The truth, Im scared that this man, who the universe keeps brining back into my life is really some how meant to be in my life. The whole, let it go and it comes back to you thought. We have totally let go before, gone years without talking, and some how, some way we run into each other and here we are bonded again. This is the third time and each time its me that pushes away. What if this time, instead of pushing away, I just hold. I hold and see.

We started talking three months after my boyfriend and I split. I never spoke to him during.  I think i could accept daily phone calls from a friend, but I can't settle with that as I am not his friend. He cant keep me as a friend......

So, tell him this and mean it.

Your words mean nothing if he calls the next day and you accept his call.

You can say "I'm not able to break free from this superficial connection as long as we keep talking.  Please respect my wishes and stop calling.  And to make sure we don't speak I'm not going to answer your calls.  Please understand this is what I need to do for myself.  If you want a real, sincere relationship with me please send me a text and say so.  Otherwise we won't be talking on the phone anymore."

The universe isn't bringing him to you. 

You just aren't saying "no" to an opportunist. 

Yes.  Don’t go the passive route of blaming your choices on woo woo notions.

It's been 9 months. He's still with his girlfriend. How much longer are you willing to hold and see?

This is so well said. thank you

I forgot that you're the other woman and you're helping him cheat on his real relationship.

Forget everything I wrote previously.  Start respecting enough yourself to no longer accept being the mistress of a cheater.

The universe also keeps repeating the same experience until you learn the lesson.

You're choosing the narrative... its not 'meant to be' if he's cheating with you.

Hold onto what, exactly? Phone calls?

Not to mention, what's he supposed to do about his real girlfriend? You know, the mother of his two children. She's supposed to just step aside?
