A mistress is a woman who has an affair with a married man. They are usually viewed as manipulative, selfish women who don’t care about their husband or family.
However, new research shows that being a mistress is not as bad as people think it is. It actually reflects a compromise of men and women’s mating ideals.
1. You’ll be a secret
Keeping secrets is a skill in and of itself, but being a mistress can be a whole new ball game. The best way to deal with it is to be honest about your intentions from the get go, and have fun while you’re at it. Be sure to cultivate other meaningful relationships and pursuits so you have something to fall back on if your mistress goes off the rails.
A secret is any information or object that is hidden from the public eye or concealed in some fashion. It can be a secret about a person (like a new crush) or a secret about a thing, such as the location of a treasure. The best secret may be the most obvious, but it could also be a secret that no one knows about.
2. You’ll be lonely
One of the hardest things about being a mistress is that you’ll spend your time alone. You won’t have the chance to share cute couple photos with your lover or go on romantic trips together.
You’ll also spend holidays and special occasions by yourself. He may spoil his wife and children on birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Easter, long weekends, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve – but you won’t get to celebrate with him.
Being a mistress can be lonely, especially if you’re not a good friend or someone who enjoys spending time with others. However, if you manage your expectations, you can actually be very successful at it. It might even be better for you than being the other woman! It’s just important to be realistic.
3. You’ll be abused
Being a mistress isn’t always a walk in the park. It can also be a waste of time and energy, so it’s important to know what you’re getting into before you commit.
One of the most common problems associated with being a mistress is being abused, aka cheated on. In some cases, the mistress may even be physically and/or sexually abused by her husband, which can be quite disheartening. The worst part is that she may even be unable to get out of the house without being apprehensive about her safety and well-being. This is a major red flag that should be addressed as soon as possible, and she should get the help she needs to survive. Luckily, there are many resources available that will help.
4. You’ll be cheated on
While there are many benefits to being a mistress, it can also be a painful experience. You’ll be cheated on and it will take a toll on your mental health.
You’ll feel guilty about it and you’ll worry about what it will do to his wife or girlfriend.
If he has children, you’ll have to think about how the affair will affect them. It will be difficult to keep the affair a secret.
Being a mistress is not something that you should ever do. It will hurt your life and it’ll make you feel like a failure. You will have to learn how to deal with it and move on from it. Thankfully, there are ways to get over the pain of being a mistress so you can start living your life again.
5. You’ll be lied to
Being a mistress isn’t an easy job. It requires hard work that seems invisible until it’s required of you.
If you’re a mistress to a married man, he will likely lie to you in order to cover up his secret affair. He will also try to convince you that he’s still committed to his wife, even if he isn’t.
Eventually, this will cause you to feel guilty for continuing the relationship. He may also make excuses for the affair, which will only worsen your guilt and shame.
So, don’t get too comfortable being a mistress – there will come a point when you want to stop. And then, the guilt and shame will be too much to bear. Don’t let him ruin your life!
