"He's engaged, he lives with her, he loves her but feels he's not happy nor is she right for him."This is the oldest line in the book that someone feeds the "other" person to convince them it's acceptable to cheat. They're unhappy, but for whatever reason, they just can't bring themselves to leave their current partner. Usually this blame falls on said partner: "I'd leave her, but she can't support herself/has threatened to hurt herself/some other total load of bs here". The point is, it's a line. It's meant to trick you into feeling bad for him, and meant to convince you that it's okay to sleep with him. If he were really THAT unhappy, he'd have left his current partner. Instead, his solution is to attempt to cheat.It's highly likely he's cheated before already, and you sure won't be the last one. The fact he's staying with his fiance while trying to string you along is proof enough. He won't be special, they never are. He's a cheater.

I know, I'm surprised there isn't a TV tropes article on that line.
