Perhaps I’m weird that way, but it never crosses my mind. When I get into a relationship, it is all or nothing. Besides, the absolute trust that is created between two partners, to me, is so sacred it should never be overlooked.
The key to getting over these feelings, I believe, is communication! If you don’t tell your lover that you’d like to try something different tonight, or talk to them about your attraction to someone else, your relationship will be placed at the bottom of your priority list, and cheating is inevitable.
Perhaps your feelings come from the fact that this person is giving you attention your lover is not giving you – compliments, attention, whatever. It should be your priority and your duty as the other half of a relationship you once wanted to work – otherwise you wouldn’t have made a commitment – to tell your partner that you are feeling this way because they are lacking in one or another department.
Believe me, unless your partner is truly not interested any longer, they will most certainly make reparations. Perhaps they did not realise they were ignoring you or whatever the case is, but the only way they can amend the situation is for you to tell them that they need to work harder.
My opinion, at least! 🙂
