I feel a little left out
My friends and I are all in our early/mid 40s and look pretty good for our ages. We've all been friends for a number of years and attend a lot of events together and with our spouses. It's a fun group to be a part of. Anyway, last week we all went to lunch. As the drinks were flowing, my friend Ann accidentally slipped up and asked my other friend Joanie how yesterday was. Simple enough question but she said it too loud and the rest of the group all kind of looked at her, confused as to what was going on. After a couple minutes of prodding, Joanie finally said, "I was with someone yesterday. It wasn't Jeff (her husband). We've been seeing each other for a couple weeks now. I don't really want to talk about it." I was surprised but as I looked around the table, it seemed like no one else was. Two other friends, Christina and Hannah, both spoke up and said that they had both been seeing someone or, in Hannah's case, two other guys on the side. Then Annie confessed that she too had an affair last year but that she ended it when the guy went back to college. I was the only one who hadn't spoken up and I had nothing to say since I had never cheated or even thought about it. They all sort of mocked me when I said that to them and I have to admit that I felt sort of jealous of them. Maybe this is weird but I wanted to share the story since I am shocked that four of my best friends all casually admitted to cheating and treated me as if I am odd for not cheating.
