The wise rapper Fabolous once said, "The entrée ain't as good without somethin' on the side."
As someone who's been on both ends of the side-piece spectrum, I can tell you having a side piece is a lot more fun than actually being a side piece.
Throughout college, I habitually had a boyfriend plus one or two guys on the side.
But then one day, I finally got a taste of my own medicine and experienced firsthand what it's like to be the dreaded side chick.
Long story short, being the other woman in the relationship really f*cking sucks.
When it comes to being a side piece, women usually get most of the attention, but there are dudes out there who also occupy the side-piece roles in relationships.
Recently, Whisper, the app that lets you spill the beans about your deepest, darkest secrets via anonymous messages, asked a bunch of guys to dish the deets on what it's like to be the "other man" in a relationship.
Take a look at the pictures below for the male perspective on being a side piece.
I'm destroying her marriage.
I don't want to share.
Sometimes, being a side piece has its advantages.
You have to realize your worth.
I want to be the only one, not an option.
Let the main dude spend the money.
I want to steal her away from the other guy.
I'm in too deep.
I got no time for cheaters.
I turned into my own worst enemy.
It's tearing up my heart.
