Just got a scathing email from DD calling my actions unforgiveable, that I drove her to the MM, not to contact her again, accusing my of not caring because I don't call her, etc.

Expected the venom. Deep in the fog. I believe this is typical behaviour. Am I correct?

Should I respond?

Yep. You hit a nerve. Nicely done. smile

I wouldn't. She won't be receptive to anything you have to say right now. Haven't you aleady said everything you could to convince her of her poor choice?

Just got a message from BW. She has changed her mind about meeting. She's not happy about my exposure of the affair. Believes it's a private matter.

I let her know that if I can ever be of help to her to let me know. Told her again about MB for support if she needs it.

I sent a response to DD:
"Yours is the typical response of a mistress to the exposure of her affair. You haven't said anything that hasn't been said by others before you and won't be the last.

You'll understand when you're a parent."

hurray nice.

Too bad the BW is burying her head, but at least you contacted her.

How are you holding up?

I'm sorry, I should've added the /sarcasm tag.

Try not to feel too bad--as others have said, this is typical for the OW in an exposure situation. She is saying nothing to you that hasn't been said before.

Do exercise. Pick up a new hobby! Do things for you! smile

No, the BW was saying that it was a private matter, not W4MG's DD.

DD also told me that she lied to me about her affair because it was none of my business to know.

It's my business when her behaviour affects our relationship.

Boxing training sounds like a great idea.

When her cavorting with a married man causes your relationship to start crumbling, yes, it IS your business, I agree.

She knew you would disapprove.

I also box. I don't plan on going into the ring, but it is AMAZING for a total body workout. Be forewarned, it builds MUSCLE. smile

You did the right thing and one day, when your WD gets her head together, she will see it.

MM called me tonight wanting to talk. I said no and hung up. There's nothing he could say that I would believe after all the lies he's told.
