In Semi-Defense Of “The Other Woman”

After reading about this woman who’s only had affairs with married men, I’ve been obsessed with reading stories about women who have been the other woman. What always strikes me about these articles in many of the women who write about their experiences don’t really see their behavior as problematic.  The typical rationalizations are that they’re not…

Girl Talk: On Being The Other Woman

Even though I’m not necessarily proud of it, I will admit I’ve been the other woman … more than once.

Come to think of it, I’ve been tempting guys since middle school. I’ll never forget the time the Seventh Grade Love of My Life walked the mile with me in gym class. Neither of u…

Shania Twain Explains Why She Blames The Other Woman More Than Her Husband For Her Divorce

“I cannot hold my husband responsible for the breakdown of our marriage. I’m responsible for that also. The fact that the marriage broke down is nobody’s fault—that’s just a mutual breakdown of communication between two people. But with Marie-Anne, she was my best friend and it was like, ‘Oh, isn’t life great.’ She kept reestablishing…

He Was Cheating. She Called The Other Woman

You know that feeling when you first see someone and you’re not only drawn to him, but you’ve just got to have him?

You want all of him — physically, emotionally and intellectually. That’s how he and I were. “He” seemed perfect for me — 10 years older, mature, confident, established (and tall!). We…

Sex Diary: Rendezvous Of The Other Woman

Welcome to the Frisky “Sex Diary,” in which an anonymous person shares the details of her sex life over the course of a few days. Sometimes these entries are filled with revealing romps, while other times there is nary a naked moment in sight. Some of these diarists are frequent contributors. Want to share a

Dating Don’ts: What You Should Know If You Insist On Being The Other Woman

Like the David Letterman Debacle wasn’t bad enough, now we have the story of Steve Phillips, the ESPN analyst, who had an affair with a 22-year-old coworker. Unfortunately for the 46-year-old sports dude and married father of four, his latest dalliance (and apparently there’ve been many before her) turned into a bunny boiler when he…

Would You Be Jealous Of A Virtual “Other Woman”?

How would you feel if your boyfriend or husband had a virtual girlfriend? I don’t mean what if he had a relationship with someone, as in a real person; I’m talking about a digitally animated girlfriend “brought to life” through Nintendo DS. There’s a new, popular dating sims (or dating simulation) video game on the…

How To Handle Being The Other Woman

Despite valiant human rights work on behalf of Angelina Jolie to make “the other woman” not look like a big ol’ skank, the truth is most people still think “the other woman” is … well, a big ol’ skank. And guess what, ladies?! There’s this awesome double standard where people shrug their shoulders at Mr.

Girl Talk: I Was The Other Woman — Should I Tell?

As many times as I’ve tried to recall the evening, I don’t remember the first time I met Marc*, although he seems to remember it well. He claims we met in a hot tub at a party that my then-boyfriend was throwing. Apparently, he thought I was “hot,” but I only had eyes for my…

Love 101: The Inadvertent Mistress

After I broke up with my sweet college boyfriend, a decent man who never ran me through the ringer, who responded to my bouts of recklessness and immaturity with compassion and sympathy, a guy who never did me wrong, I desired nothing more than desire itself. After years of slow and steady I yearned for…
