Yeah, it's true.
What I missed in that one conversation, that one exchange was how much she needed my support. No matter what she said she was thinking about doing (e.g., an affair) what she really wanted to talk about was the reason she wanted to have an affair.
She wanted to talk about how lonely she was. She was looking for something to occupy her heart.
She was lonely, she was neglected. And soon she refused my telephone calls and emails.
