10 rules for side chicks

2015-03-15 15:00

City Press spoke to four mistresses and two men who had women on the side. They all agreed there were rules of engagement for extramarital affairs.

Some of the rules may sound ludicrous, but those who created them do not take kindly to them being broken.

1. Know your place and never dare overstep your mark.

2. Always be available when he needs you and answer your phone when he calls.

3. Your time ends the minute he leaves you, so don’t disturb his quality time with his wife and family.

4. No matter how much you miss him, driving to see him at his house or calling him outside of the agreed times is not an option.

5. Don’t nag or complain about not seeing him regularly because you’ll run the risk of sounding too much like his wife.

6. Be spontaneous and adventurous. The reason they are with you is because they are bored with their wives.

7. Don’t be deluded into thinking he’ll divorce his wife for you.

8. Be supportive and always lend an ear so that he can offload about his life.

9. Children are good to have, but he has children of his own and is probably not looking for more.

10. Communicate in code in case the wife intercepts your text messages. For example: “Coach, is there a match today?”
