I will try not to make this too long but I am totally confused and crushed. I am a MW seeing a MM since December 2010. In February 2011 we became exclusive and agreed not to see anyone else. Then the love bug bit us and we decided to take our relationship one day at a time and see where things go. He does have kids and he co-exists with his wife and does not want to leave until his kids are older. We agreed to no bs, lies, etc. My marriage has been sexless for 12 plus years and that is my husbands choice. He does not want a divorce and we live like roommates. Anyway after 12 years of no intimacy I gave in and thought I found a nice honest decent man. My husband knows I have a lover and our marriage is open. Part of the year my MM works in another state and was up front about that when we first met. He told me yesterday he was leaving sooner than he thought and I was doing my best to stay positive. We are also planning that I would come visit him several times. So later this morning I receive a text saying he does not like long sappy goodbyes and that he left early this morning. He said to call whenever I want and he hopes I am not upset. Needless to say I was floored when I read his text and immediately the tears started flowing. I thought how could he do this to me? Does he really care about me or did he not want an emotional goodbye? So now I am wondering if he really did love me or if everything he said was a lie. If he was lying he should win an Emmy, Academy Award, etc. Am I a fool? I don't know what to do now. I have not called him back because my jaw is still on the floor.
