In the mean time, life is being uncooperative about letting me have a 'window' into the OW. Granted, I got to see a brief picture of her several weeks ago, but aside from that, nada. I'm not trying to see if she's better or worse than me or anything like that...I'm just damn curious I guess.
I don't want to give her the time of day face to face, nor do I have any interest in texting/emailing/etc. I just know that she got to have a pretty good look at my life that it makes me want the same from her.
Sadly, evidently the lawyer who is handling her divorce told her to get her info off line (I guess the partying and other activities she was constantly up to doesn't shed such a great look on her if she wants custody).
Yeah, I know I should leave it. I think it's like that aching tooth you can't stop prodding.
I also obsessed because I was desperately trying to answer the question "who is this person my WH ripped us apart over?"
After a while I realized that looking at her classless attempts to play the victim, and frankly looking at her face at all, was just ruining my mood all the time, and that who she is doesn't matter, what she does every day doesn't matter, who she talks about online doesn't matter, she's a broken person who doesn't deserve a single second of my time. I haven't looked at her stuff in about 2 weeks, and my healing process is MUCH better for it, and I'm not even tempted to look, just the thought makes me mad. But I feel where you're coming from for sure. There were a few weeks there when no amount of telling myself it didn't matter would stop me from looking.

Prostitutes, ONSs, and one 7-month LTA (total time: 2 years). Have lost count of OPs, probably 12 or so. LTA was by far most damaging.

Just want to say this is normal. She got to know something about your life (your husband) that she should never have known. She did get a window into your life. It's totally understandable to want to know who your H was sharing his life with, when he should have been sharing it with you.
If you have questions about the OW, is your H honest and forthright in answering them? It might help to know that he keeps no more secrets between them, that everything they knew you know, that he shares everything with you. But it will still take time, and it will still hurt, and it will never be fair. I'm sorry, I know how painful it is.
