I am getting a little tired of keeping him in a good mood by always building up his ego." Unless you want him to drop you completely instead of "keeping; you dangling" you'd better not gel fed up with feeding his ego. Why else do you think he is playing around ? The married man who seeks out another woman to tell his troubles to on the grounds that his wife doesn't understand him isn 't looking for love or even for a permanent love affair. He's a sad sack and a Sorry lot who has to have some woman telling him how wonderful he is—because he really knows he isn't. When his wife gets tired of telling him he is wonderful or when he starts taking her so much for granted that her compliments no longer have the power to inflate his ego he starts looking around for another woman. Seeks Eternal Build -Up And his interest in that other woman lasts just so long as she can keep him thinking he is quite a guy. Let her get critical of him, or demanding. Let her begin to think of herself and what she is getting out of a shady affair. Let her start finding flaws with him instead of building him up. Let her do any or all of these—and Iie'U quit her.
