Being the third party in a relationship is never easy, regardless whether you are male or female.

And while we often hear stories from mistresses about their experiences, not much is known about guys who go through the same thing.

Elite Daily has compiled a list of confessions from Whisper about what these ‘other men’ really think and feel:

1. I’m the other guy, she hasn’t broken up with him, and I’m afraid I’m in too deep.

2. I’m the other guy in a relationship. She cheated on her man with me and I’m not letting her go. I want to take her away from him.

3. Not happy being the other man; I think it’s time she picked.

4. I’m the other guy and it sucks because I really hate sharing her…

5. It’s an odd feeling knowing I’m the other guy and that I’m the one ruining her marriage.

6. I love being the side guy for married women. No drama, hot sex, and personal space when we want it.

7. I’m the other man in a relationship. I love her but know she will never choose me. I’m thinking about getting in to another relationship that could go somewhere, but I don’t have the guts to hurt her.

8. I’m the “other guy” and I’m tired of it. I want to be someone’s only one, not their back up.

9. I’m the other guy in a relationship. She cheated on her man with me and I’m not letting her go. I want to take her away from him.

10. I was the other man without knowing it. I called it off because she’s engaged. I don’t want to be the other man, and I’m disgusted by her, and yet still heartbroken. Can’t get over it.

11. I’m the other man in a relationship and it’s tearing me apart. But I care so much for this beautiful and special woman.

12. I like being the other guy. Main dude spends money and time, I just have fun.
