My wife had several affairs and I stayed to care for my children; didn't know about SI until last couple of affairs. She USED me to take care of everything else while she was screwing her boyfriends. Hence, usedagain was chosen since I had been her back-up plan for her affairs.
My wife has friends in low places.

Blindsided: "to take somebody unawares suddenly, with detrimental results to that person."
I think blindsided may have already been taken, hence the transposition of the word. At any rate, it fits so I wear it.

Just getting caught up on these. I love the creativity at a time when our worlds are coming to an end.

Mine is so dumb compared to all the creative names here.
I think I read one single post, and was soo happy I found a forum that I could relate to, that I signed up right away without looking at the usernames. So I always liked the name jackie, 89- year I got married!!

Meet a friend. I was a children's librarian.
I just like cats better. And K seemed to fit. Yes, I'm aware there isn't usually an "e" after the r.

I promised my BW that I would get on SI. At the time, I was a complete mess and couldn't come up with a good username. I refused to delay getting on until I could come up with one, thus, NoGoodUsername. She got that account and password too.
Is anyone else finding this thread triggery/therapeutic?

Due to his stupidity...made me want to stick a fork in my head. Seriously, why be in a relationship and cheat? Now I would settle to stick the fork in his head.
Just when you think it's safe to go into the water. Life steps in and takes a big bite. Let me rephrase that to a HUGE bite out of ones ass.

No life should be passively relinquished due to the toxicity of others and taking steps to protect yourself may very well be the most important steps you will ever take.
