I love my wife with all my heart and would never cheat on her but I’m secretly infatuated with one of her friends. I think I’m just using the fantasy to self soothe the stresses of work and family.
I have been feeling conflicted lately because I have developed a secret infatuation towards one of my wife’s friends. I want to be clear that I love my wife and would never cheat on her, but these feelings are hard to ignore.
I think that the infatuation is a result of the stresses of work and family. It’s like a fantasy that I use to self-soothe and escape from my daily life. However, I am aware that this fantasy is not healthy, and it can put my marriage at risk if left unchecked.
I am struggling with how to manage these conflicting feelings. I want to stay faithful to my wife, but at the same time, I can’t seem to shake this attraction. I have been trying to cope with the stress of work and family through other means, like exercise and meditation, but it doesn’t seem to be helping much.
I know that communication is key in any relationship, and I am considering talking to my wife about how I feel. I don’t want to jeopardize our marriage or her friendship, but I also don’t want to keep this bottled up. I need to find a way to manage these feelings and keep them in check.
If anyone has been in a similar situation or has any advice on how to deal with these feelings, I would appreciate it. I want to do the right thing and be a good husband to my wife.
