Yesterday I cheated on my husband. It wasn’t planned, it wasn’t thought out, it just happened.
He’s been overseas for nine months now. I’ve missed him horribly. I’m in a town basically on my own without any family or any close friends I can really connect with. It’s been alienating and isolating and has been torture at times.
A few days ago, I met a guy about my age in a coffee shop. He noticed a sticker on my laptop that was of a band I was sure no one had ever heard of. Turned out he had, and after a whirlwind of a few hours I found myself at his house that evening where I did it.
I thought at first this guy would just be a friend I could share music recommendations from, but in an instant of a moment my isolation turned to selfish physical need.
I don’t know what to do. I’ve cut off all contact with this guy and feel horrible.
What can I do? How can I fix this?
