long story short been talking to a guy for 2 years been the other woman fell in love, he claims to love me to, been on and off, I'm not trying to take his girlfriend place because I know we wouldn't do well in a relationship its all about sex but why do I enjoy this but get all emotional and wrapped up, main question is are mistresses really respected I just want to know how do men really feel about the other woman, are we viewed as just hoes or just simply a 2nd girlfriend for when the 2st one isn't acting right

Why are you accepting the role of 'other woman' when you should be his only woman, seeing as he says he loves you. I don't buy that line and neither should you. If he cared he should not need someone else in his life unless the situation is more complicated than I realize.
Why do you like being the other woman? Maybe you are afraid of commitment. You want intimacy, but you don't want a relationship.
Does he respect you? Probably not because you don't respect yourself. I doubt any man can respect a woman whose relationship is based solely on sex.
Should you continue to do this? Keep in mind that you are hurting someone else's relationship. On the other hand, I believe that there is nothing good or bad, but thinking, makes it so. Continue to do this if you can live with it, but be prepared for the consequences.1
