For your own sanity you need to back away from this man especially if you know for sure that he likes someone else
! The fact that he is married is bad enough on its own. If he is flirting with you at all, giving you reasons to believe that you are special to him, he may be doing exactly the same thing with her as well when you are not around. If he has told you that he likes
her, then he does not see you as a potential affair (not one with feelings anyway) Men do not tell an interested woman that they like someone else if they have feelings for her, they may say they like someone and give a desription of your similarities but they will not say they like someone else in particular. If you have seen signs that he likes
her and it is obvious, do not let him sweet talk you into believing he has feelings for you. Some married men just crave attention from women, and will flirt to gain the desired effect, also some men are very clever at it! It is no good
for you whatsoever to carry a torch for this married man any way, but in this situation it is pointless, you are hurting already and confused. If he really likes
another lady, he will treat her differently to normal flirting. He will be very respectful to her, look at her differently, admire her, and there will be an obvious change in him when she is around. He will be helpful to her, value her opinions and hang on to her every word. His manners will be well practised. Also he will watch her whenever he can, he won`t be able to help himself.
If you have noticed any of this with the other lady, then take it that it is her he likes
(in that way) and for your own good
back away from the situation.You will never know in your heart if he has any real feelings for you or the other one. You do not need any further hurt!! I hope this helps.
Your gut instinct will tell you if he likes
her anyway, you would have seen him watching her or felt some chemistry between them!.
Please try to stay away from him, he has hurt you already by letting you believe he likes
another lady (even if you have only seen it) and that is not a nice thing to do especially if he knows that you like him. Don`t feed his ego any longer, look for someone who makes you feel good
, not hurt and confused.
