I’d been married about 20 years, feeling unloved and unimportant when I met a man at one of the workshops I liked to attend.
His name was Bob (not his real name) and we were working in the same group. He appeared to be bowled over by me, a real novelty for me. Nobody had ever been bowled over by me before and my marriage wasn’t exactly conducive to me thinking of myself as an attractive woman.
But that wasn’t the thing that struck me about him. It was that he found me interesting! That was even more of a novelty for me!
Is it any wonder that I fell head over heels in love with him? Well, I didn’t exactly fall in love with him but I did go to bed with him – not because of the sex but because I’d felt lonely and practically invisible for such a long time and here was a man who really listened to me.
