Holidays are typically very emotional and very hard for the other woman. It reminds you that it is the end of the year and he still hasn’t done anything to change his current circumstances—because he may not want to (and why should he?)! But you don’t want to think about that, because hope is a very powerful emotion for the other woman. Because no matter how suicidal or homicidal you’re feeling this holiday season, there is a bright side… You can dump him because you deserve better, and mark the new year coming up as a brand new start and a new beginning. OR, you can continue being alone and his personal side piece whenever he decides to come around.
This time of year as usual… you’ll be sweatpants clad, with nowhere to go, frequently drunk and eternally enraged! Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day and even his birthday—those occasions are most difficult because they follow each other and they’re all reserved for his family and this leaves you, the other woman, out in the cold… again and again.
And know this—that the married man will do and say anything, especially during the holidays to hang on to you. “If only I’d met you years ago”, he’ll purr. To an emotionally needy woman, that statement sounds like a hugely flattering line, so, you’ll believe him. And he will then morph into another lie, “I wish I was waking up to you instead, on Christmas day.” Yep, just another lie, to hold on to you. Ladies, just remember, and understand this: HE’S NOT LEAVING HIS WIFE! IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AND IT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!! So dump his ass once and for all! …And to all, a good night.
