I believe I was involved in what some call an emotional affair when I was a teenager (minor) with a family acquantance who was twice my age. I am in my thirties now, and I find that I do not see people the same as I did before this happened. He was smart, he would not be around me... this was before the Internet; we had many conversations on the phone. I just feel alone with my experience; I have never met any one who has had a similar experience. I am in a relationship that has lasted about ten years (and counting!), but to this day, I look at people and question what they want from me. Does this make sense? Also, because he would not be around me after the calls started, I felt that I was not good enough to be around. I still have this same feeling of low self-esteem. I guess what I want to know is if anyone else out there has experienced something similar to mine. Because I was a minor can it even be considered an emotional affair. I just recently heard of this terminology and I wonder if that is appropriate for my situation.
