I am writing to ask for the use of your wisdom and experience. I have known for a few months now that I am no longer the only woman in my boyfriend's life. But it is only now that we're on holiday (which entails spending much longer periods of time together than usual) that the full extent of this other relationship has revealed itself. Consider the following behaviors that I have noticed over the past several days between my boyfriend and this 'other woman' (who, I might note, is traveling with us):
He simply cannot keep his hands off of her. On occasion, in response to this, she'll actually kick him (or hit him - it's hard to be sure). He doesn't seem to mind.
He kisses her regularly. In public. In front of me (of course, he also kisses me in front of her, but that's perhaps better left for another letter). As far as I can tell, she doesn't kiss back. Her lack of affection doesn't seem to faze him.
When confronted with these facts, he doesn't even try to deny anything. In fact, he suggests that he will only really get to know her in May. At which point, he's apparently planning to take her home to live with us. As if that weren't enough, I believe I'm expected to feed her and make sure all her needs are met while he's at work.
So, dearest reader, what should I do? Is it wrong to just give in, to embrace this new relationship? Dare I even enter into a relationship with her myself? Because truth be told, this other woman is kind of cute, and totally captivating.
