He phoned me a couple of hours later and wanted details. I mentioned it was an ‘’older man who lives in a mansion in Noosa” [in Queensland, Australia]. I also said he owns a restaurant. I don’t know why. I just wanted to paint a picture of a successful, wealthy man.
Anyway fast forward two months later, Nick and I reconciled, and one of the reasons he said he wanted me back is that when he learnt that I’d had an affair, he felt so devastated and so jealous, he realized that he loved me more than anybody else.
So we got back together and that’s when I thought it was the best thing to tell him the truth – to tell him that I had lied about having an affair. I told him I lied because I wanted to shock him, I wanted him to hurt and I am so sorry that I lied. So, what happened? Well, he burst out laughing and said, “BS! It’s okay, you don’t have to lie. I can hardly get upset with you having an affair when I’d done the same thing.”
