Cheating is a lot of work!! The feelings you get for yourself after the rush from the emotional boost are guilt, shame and disgust. Then when you get caught--and you will!!--you will hurt more people then you realize and will lose many friends you thought were the 'thick and thin' friendships. It also makes more sense to fix your relationship since it is not as difficult and hopeless as it seems sometimes.
For an ego boost, try dressing up and see how many looks, etc. you get. Just do not cross the line and cheat or so anything you would not want your hubby to do.
I wrote an article about my relationship and on being the other woman. Read the article and then honestly answer those questions....
Read your story, it made me stop and think about what I was asking. You see, I have no excuse, not than an excuse is a reason to cheat, but I have none. My hubby is kind, considerate, thoughtful, helpful everything every woman ever dreamed of wanted. He is a good, kind, honest & sincere man, always there for me.
I guess over the past year with all the changes and self-improvements I been doing for my self, I've just wanted more. Believe me, my ego doesn't need anymore boosting, I'm feeling better than I ever have which in itself causes a small problem. Men look and react to me much differently, less conflicting and more agreeable. Even lately one reaches out and touches my shoulder or arm and I feel a small spark.
Fortunately though the opportunity would never happen (for reasons I don't wish to mention here), and after reading your article I couldn't betray him that way, he doesn't deserve it. I am already racked with too much guilt over my life for doing the right thing all the time. Doing something wrong will only make me loose the self-esteemed I've finally gained.
