Ginger is spot on here ^^^
Sadly, you've got nothing to work with here - he has an affair then just continues on with his adolescent flirting totally disregarding the fact that he is an ADULT and has a WIFE - these texts sadly show he has no true remorse
Yes. I think it's worth noting that every adult knows that there can be a bit of a clandestine thrill to meeting someone, recognising you could be interested in each other if circumstances permitted it, and then flirting in a deniable, invisible sort of way. I mean it is available to all of us, pretty much all the time. The thing is that grown-ups in committed relationships recognise this for what it is, and don't get into it. The reason I think this is worth noting is that I suspect that some cheaters think that there's something magical or special or rare about that "connection" they are feeling with the outside person. But it's really commonplace. It is as magical and special and rare as that feeling you get when you see a piece of candy, if you happen to like candy.
Maybe it is okay, maybe it will be okay.
