Two years ago, I had an affair with a married man, a partner at a big 4 who was really sweet (and obviously toxic). Met at a bar in April … it was off and on until November (plus one night in December that ended very badly). I was in an awful place mentally and emotionally in my life, and sort of just blew up my life. I even quit my job (no, we didn’t work together), no notice, couldn’t get out of bed….. (cont. in comments)
