Dr. Robin says that Lynne clearly hoped that the man she was having an affair with would leave his wife. "Women get into this competitive thing where we want someone to choose us. We want to win," Dr. Robin says. "And we don't understand that often it's a booby prize when you win in that game."
In reality, this affair was not about winning a prize at all but was in fact an insult. "It is insulting to any of us to have someone who is married to pursue us and say things that are sexual or that are sensual or that are affectionate," Dr. Robin says. "And we should take it as an offense, not as something that strokes our empty, wounded egos."
