Basically, a friend has been with her boyfriend for 4 years, they have no children but have a house together. She has recently met a much older man (married with 3 kids (oldest is her age - she is 25 and he is 47) and they have been texting what appears very innocent wording but has a flirty undertone that they both are fully aware of. She openly jokes about liking him - in front of her boyf too - but all very tongue in cheek.
Nothing has happened yet, neither have actually told the other they're interested but its apparent. They both spend more time than is necessary together.
Is this more than just enjoying each others company? Her boyfriend is very important to me and though she is too, I don't want to see him get hurt.
I glanced at this and thought it said "Is it wrong to think about a man who whistles a lot in a relationship?" Oh and I would tell her to stop being a silly mare, the man is married with kids fgs. So he needs a smack too imo...
It sounds to me to be very much the scenario where he will advance the relationship if he can either to achieve a conquest or just because of the enhanced self esteem of pulling a much younger woman. She might get some short term fun out of it but the chances are he will drop her once the novelty wears off and he gets sick of the texts and emails. This happens a lot, it happened to me and it caused me great misery for a while.
If he is 47 he might not be nearly so attractive with his clothes off!
