Stories of Mistresses: I’m Young and He’s Rich
This is the sixth installment of our series The Mistress Speaks. The following is a story that was sent to me, unchanged, except for removing any identifying information. Enjoy!
I’m young. Just turned 22 last month. I’ve had two major relationships, both with men who took care of me (one was a ball player, one was in the music industry). I simply can’t see myself being with someone who can’t satisfy me in EVERY way possible. I know it sounds childish, foolish, silly, selfish and every other negative thing. However, I’ve come to terms with that’s how I am. I’ve been raised with money so it’s difficult to accept anything less.
Now, let me get to the point. I’ve known my current man since I was like 11, he was around 23. No, there was most definitely not any R. Kelly-ish going on…he was just my first innocent crush. We fell out of touch for a few years and linked back up when I was 21. The chemistry was automatic between us. He is very wealthy and not married, but living with his girlfriend and their son. They’ve had relationship problems in the past, and I know that’s no excuse but I care about him. Normally, I would be on the other side of the spectrum of this whole debate, but linking back up with him has taught me a lot.
In my case, I’m dealing with someone else’ man simply because I care about him too. Is it because he was my first crush? Is it because he’s a provider? Is it because he’s gorgeous? Who knows?! All I know is, I’ve cared about him more than the two aforementioned.
It is what it is
