You do know that it could have been a discrete setup for him to feel you out on the topic on ménage à trois. What if he was hoping you would have been like, "show me her photo, ask her if she wants to hang out with both of us?"
I think what he replied was awesome. If he said “I have a girlfriend” that could be interpreted as “not now, but catch me later”. Texting “I’m in love. Wish you the best” says “I found something real, never contact me again”. I would be swooning, not worried.
He sounds like a sweet man; you have nothing to worry about.
Does this mean that you and @2ntnuf are back 'ON' again?
@heartsbeating and I have never been "ON". I have no idea who she is in real life. I have never talked to her outside of in a thread here. I don't think we've ever pm'd. If we did, it was about music or my issues concerning my failed marriage and my deep depression. Rarely, have we interacted with each other.
I've always tried to respect her and her marriage to the best of my ability. In fact, I consider her my friend and that's all. She is quite happy in her marriage and not attracted to me in the least. I am not, nor ever have been attracted to her. I like some of the music she posts and I remember some stories she posted about music.
Otherwise, she is a down to earth woman who I would never intentionally consider for anything more than a conversation. I respect her and her marriage. I have even used her posts as a learning tool to consider how a married woman should act, so that I could figure out what I have missed in past relationships. She is steadfastly faithful and deeply in love with her husband.
Well..the only one who knows what he meant is him.
For example, if he hadn't fallen in love with you yet, would he still cheat? Just because someone has a GF doesn't automatically stop people from cheating. Actually, they cheat when they're not in love.
In your case, you're lucky he's in love. If he weren't, God knows what chances he would've taken.
