A catastrophic affair left me bitter and suspicious

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 38 year old woman who used to be cute. Then I had a three-year affair.

Knowing that I’m one of America’s bigger fools – and for so long – is annoying, but I finally saw the light. The only person i think is a bigger fool than me is his wife.

Some “highlights” of our romance: He gave me a venereal disease during the spring break. I found an unknown woman’s phone number in his contact file and I saw a blonde in a white convertible drop him off at his house at 9:15 in the morning, which according to him “never happened.” (My eyes do not lie.) After I was hit by a car in a pedestrian crossing, he never called me to see how I was doing. His teenage son followed me around town, turning me away and shouting obscenely at me. There’s more, but I have to spare you.
