Forgive and forget = Relive and regret.
my WW still has 1 friend that knew about her LTA. This is a woman WW has known practically all her life.
WW states that this friend never actually supported her in her affair but was there to listen when WW needed to vent.
This friend never liked me much so I guess she did not feel the need to tell me what was going on. WW would not give this friend up because in WW words *she never really did anything wrong*.
In my view she never did anything right either.
In the end we cant control who our WS have as friends. It sucks. But thats the truth of it.
The separation you talk of is troubling because to me I see this as a way for a WS to act single yet stay M. Cake eating.
I dont know your story. But if your WW affair was long term (LTA) then she may have actually been in love with her OM and stopped loving you. In that sense what she says makes some slight sense because she misses you and wants to see you. And may be in the process of falling back in love with you. OTOH she could be just saying these things to string you along.
I dont see allot of your WW wanting to R with you in what you say here.
It just seems to me that IF your WW was really wanting R then she would be showing more signs of working toward that. Maybe shes thinking that you have to win her back?
I see a lot of red flags in the friends your WW is keeping and this separation. How do you know there is not other OMs?
Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.
