"We aren't involved but she feels attached. She's been good to me, very helpful, and I don't want to hurt her feelings. So if we all go out together, just don't tell her that I'm with you."
To fill in some missing details, this lady is easily ten years older than him and also me. I believe that she may have financially backed a venture of his. She's older, divorced, adult daugther left the nest, etc., and maybe she thought $$$ would buy her a younger man - like a Sugar Momma situation.
But that said, I don't know how to take this like I'm being asked to play mistress to a man who isn't married, lol, and I know they aren't married but in other words I have to hide it that we're dating so she won't be hurt.
I'm not sure how to handle this and I'm just thinking it all over. I'm not sure that I can be okay with this because three's a crowd and if we're gonna have to play this game to appease her, not sure we can be happy like this.
