An anonymous woman has written to the "Advice from the Dating Wreckage" column on Metro.co.uk asking for advice on a dilemma she has.
Here is her letter:
"I’ve been having flirty chat with this guy for a few months now. We’ve met up a few times, although nothing has happened between us – because he’s admitted he’s married.
"It seems like he’s unhappy in the relationship, though, and if things between us develop, I think he’d probably leave his wife and we could be together instead.
"I can’t help but feel guilty whenever we go for dinner, though, because he’s got a wife. Should I keep pursuing this, or stay away?"
The column expressly advised her against pursuing such a relationship because the man is choosing to stray even though he is already committed.
Therefore, if he can do that, what would stop him doing it again to her in the future? Furthermore, he might decide to stay with his wife anyway. In both instances, the woman would be hurt.
What would you advise her to do?
