'I have fallen for a married woman'

She is married with a four-year-old son. Her husband is in the merchant navy, so he remains away for months. We got along like a house on fire. We keep talking to each other on the phone every day. I’ve never felt like this before with any woman. Is this love? Does she care for me?

Dear Sumair,
It may be love for you, but I have serious doubts about what is going on in her mind. As you said, her husband stays away for months because of his job. She might be lonely, so she may be just bonding with you. You are showering her with attention and she is loving it. Drop hints and get to know what is on her mind. If she keeps talking about her tot and hubby, it is clear that she is not thinking of anything more. You just talk on the phone and she has not evinced a desire to meet you or to take things to the next level. So for now just think of her as a pal. Before you start thinking of a future with her, remember she has a family, so it will be an extramarital affair for her. Think twice before you decide to take the plunge.
