I think I feel bad?
So I’ve been talking to this guy I met on a dating app. I called him one night and realised he was using a texting app to contact me and was lying as well.
He flat out told me he had a girlfriend and that his girlfriend checks his phone… but he likes me a lot, and his relationship is complicated. He doesn’t wanna be with her anymore. That’s why he was looking for someone new.

My feelings for him won’t go away. I still contact him. I mean he’s clearly unhappy.
Do you think I’m a home wrecker?
Oh honey, don’t be that person.
Don’t be the person who ignores obvious red flags, not to mention your moral compass, because you’re getting romantic attention.
It’s not a good look. How do I know? Because I’ve been that girl.
I’ve been the one who ignored the warning signs, manufactured feelings where there were none, ignored the fact that I was actively participating in deceiving and hurting someone else because I liked the attention, I wanted to feel wanted, and I had a crush.
That’s what this is — a crush.
He’s just some guy you met on a dating app. (I am assuming you haven’t met in person based on what you said in your email.) You have very little invested here. Get out of this situation now before it gets any messier.
