The ever-witty Sistermilkshake on the oft repeated theme of the affairing down of AP & the common visual results:

Upon finding what appears to be the OW, after a months long scouring of the internet, she calls him to face the computer screen:

He came and looked. Was totally blindsided and turned a ghastly shade of white. He choked out the words "Yes, and hasn't aged well!"

Me: Oh, fuck. We are in a lot of trouble.

Him: Why? What do you mean?

Me: Well, apparently you'll fuck anything!

Marriages that start this way, stepping over the bodies of loved ones as the giddy couple walks down the aisle, are not likely to last.

leeoob's explanation for understanding brokenness

You have two systems in you. An emotional and a logic one. You are trying to use your logic-system to understand something that was done with an (broken) emotional-system. You will never make any logical sense of out that.

Background: Neverwudaguessed made a common mistake (threat 'well that's why you don't go look at the APs Facebook Page' in General). OWs post about 'lost love' was so pathetic and embarrassing that most of us couldn't even finish it.

Notthevictim summed it up perfectly...

Funnelcakes on TT in General:

In our case, I'd say it's been a case of low-grade shitweaseliness combined with an outbreak of minimization, a spike in blameshifting, with episodes of situational amnesia, bizarre word salad cheater aphasia, and delusions that Herr Funnelcakes could somehow manage the message after the cat got out the bag.

Not necessarily a quote but rather a question in OT asked by Notthevictem.

If I wanted to color my nipples green, what's the best way to do it?

This had to be memorialized somewhere and this was the best place I could think of.

For those who are interested...

Imagoodwitch with some of the best advice I've read on here:

Do not sign anything or tattoo anything.

DS, you are forever in my heart. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit with me. I will always try to live by the example you have set. I love you and miss you every day and am sorry you had to go so soon, it just doesn't seem fair.

ceilingfanswitch got an email from his XW, complaining about how she's in financial distress:

Of course I responded by crickets chirping. I almost sent an email with only the text "unsubscribe" but instead I just ignored her.

Next time tell him that honesty does not equal amnesty. The point of requiring honesty when reconciling is to get the full unvarnished truth about the past damage, not a hall pass to create more!

Wisdom shared by SkepticallyStuck - in response to a situation where a WH confessed to breaking NC and was upset that the BW was pissed about it because he was demonstrating honesty...
