Hello, does anyone know of a book that I could recommend to a single woman, in her 40's, that likes to have "relationships" w/married men?

Thanks so much.

Hmmm . . . .I'm thinking a really long book--5 or 600 pages or more. Probably large print. So she can hit herself in the head with it until she comes to her senses.

Maybe start her off with an article before you build up to chapter books:

Would the popular book "Not Just Friends" be appropriate? I haven't read it, but, probably should, since I've discovered that my WH had several women that he claimed were "just friends."

He's Just Not That Into You addresses this.

Also, the website baggagereclaim.com is written by a former OW and there may be some info on there that could be helpful.

Is that a book or a movie?
