Heard about this last night

It's a community for "the other woman". Apparently being the other woman is a lonely endeavor and support is needed from other "other women". Why can't they get their own man?

when someone is lonely and feels they need love, sometimes whatever avenue you have to travel down to get that love is the direction you want to go. i find more fault with a man who cheats (or woman). why be in a marriage if you are NOT IN the marriage? strange way to deprive someone else of a trusting, loving, respectful relationship.

i agree with above poster. the "other woman" is not the one doing something wrong. she's single and is just looking for a man. it's the man who is cheating on his wife who is to blame. i wonder how many "other women" out there don't realize that their man is married? but yet society considers the man to be the stud and the girl to be the problem. and why does the wife often get more angry with the other woman than with her husband?

and no, i have never (knowingly) been in this situation.

I agree with the OP. I used to live with a single woman in her 40s who intentionally sought out married men. If they were single, she did not want to be bothered with them. She even tried to get me in on the "action" and persuade me that this was the way to go. Almost every single night, she would bring home a man to sleep with and would tell me with a straight face it was not her fault the man was sleeping around. It was the wife's fault for not taking care of him the way she should be. And she's not the only female I've met with this attitude.

My point is that in a lot of instances, "the other woman" is most certainly doing something wrong. However, I wouldn't say she's always the only one to blame. I feel that when something like this goes down, all parties involved - the other woman, the husband and the wife - should take a good look at themselves. Maybe the wife dropped the ball somewhere in the marriage and the man felt neglected. Not that that's an excuse for him to cheat. He should have come forward and said something before seeking out other options behind her back. Or maybe he's just a cheater who doesn't care about his wife who's doing everything she can to make him happy. Or maybe "the other woman" is one of the types of women I've met who's out to get hers regardless of whether he's involved with someone or not.

Just because you're a lonely, single female does not give you the right to latch on to any married man you find. Now, if you have no knowledge of his being married, that's a different story. But if you do, I have no sympathy for you and your loneliness. You are being an active participant in the destruction of someone's marriage, someone's life. And God help the family if there are kids involved.

..."any married man you find."
FIND? like a puppy who follows someone home? if a married man (or woman) is putting themself in a position to "pick-up" someone from a bar or party or wherever, they are not being FOUND. they are SEEKING an affair/one-night-stand. i think some women (or men) may just say to themselves, "he's (or she's) going home with someone tonight...may as well be me." honestly, i don't think people who date married people have a great self-image, so their behavior is not to be "rationalized".

It is NOT always the other woman

Remember it takes two to tango. I was the other woman, and the guy I was fooling around with was in a miserable marriage. His wife was a BITCH, and made his life hell.
Now we are happily married with a wonderful life together, all I can say, is that I am really glad his wife was a bitch because I would never have met my solmate.

Hmm, I am a women, happily married and I must be thinking differently. Its not so much the other woman, really its the man who should be questioned. Maybe the other woman got into the relationship under a false pretenses. I think anyone who is cheating should be the one held accountable, getting angry at the "other" person isn't the right response.

The 'other woman' is a sad creature. Why would soeone want another person who would cheat on their spouse? What is remotely attractive about that? And why would you want a person who looks outside the marriage and turns to someone else when they're unhappy? Tell them to grow up, already. Let married people take care of their sh*t, get divorced, and THEN pursue a relationship!
