Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated...
I can't talk to anyone else about this because I fear my boyfriend could find out. That sounds horrible, I know, but I've never felt like this and I have no control over it.
I've been with my boyfriend a little over a year. He's treats me like a princess and I fell madly in love with him. However, I'll admit, the *spark* has gone away and the feeling of butterflies in my stomach has faded. That's kinda normal, right? Honeymoon stage doesn't last forever? I'm fine with that... but...
I met a guy at work that gives me that crush feeling again and I feel like I'm addicted. I've never felt like this before. I mean I really can't stop thinking about him as much as I try to. I constantly feel anxious and guilty because I know that I shouldn't be thinking about him in that light when I'm committed to someone else. But I can't help it. I'm somewhat forced to be around him since I work with him and he's always making me laugh and giggle and we have great conversations.
I haven't acted out on anything, but I am flirtatious with him and we've texted a few times. He already told me we should stop because he respects that I have a boyfriend. I do believe he has a crush on me as well but I'm not sure how strong it is. I am going to try to avoid him but I feel depressed and the tension at work is just awkward when we're both outwardly denying that we want to talk and socialize.
I'm so scared that this is going to progress because it could potentially destroy my current relationship. But at the same time, it's so exciting to meet someone else that you connect with.
I've had a few small crushes on other guys here and there, but this one is way more intense. I know it's normal to be attracted to someone else, but it's like I have this addiction to that "crush" feeling.
Please help me. Is this normal? Does it mean that my boyfriend isn't "the one" because I like someone else??? Has anyone else gone through this before? My boyfriend doesn't deserve to get dumped.
I just feel like I'm incapable of having a stable relationship. What is wrong with me? I can't be with someone for a year without constantly thinking about other men? I feel like a piece of sh*t.
Thank you for reading
