I’d had a crush on my client Tim for two years and I always hid it from him. For starters, it wouldn’t have been professional of me to tell him how I felt. And also with him being married, it just wasn’t appropriate. So I kept my feelings to myself and enjoyed being friends with him. I was single for a year after breaking up with my long-term partner, so I was enjoying the single life anyway and didn’t want to complicate things with an affair.
Tim was definitely my dream man, we got on so well and I absolutely lusted after him. I’d have to remind myself any time I was with him that I needed to play it very cool and not give away any idea he might have that I liked him so much.
Then I met a new man and things were going okay. We were even talking about our future together and buying property, that’s how serious that relationship got. But then, out of the blue, Tim contacted me to let me know he’d left his marriage and things were a bit tough for him. I told him I’m here to talk if he needed to, as I was a breakup expert having been through a few shockers of my own.
Weeks went by and I saw Tim again at a meeting, we had eye contact and a smile but that was it. I guess I’d kind of been hoping that once he was single he’d make a move on me. I always thought we had amazing chemistry. I figured then that it was clearly one-sided.
