signs of emotional Infidelity
Words define thoughts.
Words mitigate guilt as well.
Confidantes outside committed relationship comfort you.
He or she gets you when your spouse doesn’t care.
You find yourself attached to that person.
Call it “friendship” and the burden is somehow off the chest. It is not. It is still there.
Then how do you set the boundaries?
Psychologists might help you draw the line. Judith Tutin, Charlotte A. Michie, and Dr. Stephen Snyder offered a few criteria for self-examination.
The psychologists came up with many reasons.
“You dress up for him. You try new clothes or new hairstyle and wonder what he'll think.”
Hiding your feelings also happens, she added.
“You lie to your partner about seeing him. You think it’s not lying, but it is. You must ask yourself what you're hiding and why.”
Trying new things, which is so unlike the usual self, are included,
“You do special things for him that you don't do for others. You give him little gift imagining him placing on his desk. You know your true intentions are.”
Increase in electronic communications and texting are also indications, she explained.
“You surreptitiously check your phone to see the latest text. It's a sign of trouble in both relationships.”
You can’t hide from feeling good and being in the good mood.
“You laugh more with him. You always have more fun with him than with your partner.”
“You think about him all the time. You anticipate your next encounter. You are hoping he contacts you.”
An unimaginable feeling like opening up to someone else is among the strongest indications, she said.
“You tell him things about yourself that you haven't told your partner. As a relationship develops, so does the depth of the feelings.”
Physical reactions are the most notable signs of all, she claimed.
“You feel difficult to concentrate when he's around. This is an ordinary part of human sexual arousal.
Other things become less important. You lose track of time when you're with him.
When the two of you are alone, you don't want to be interrupted. Nothing else seems truly important”
Inner feelings show, she also noted.
“You smile more brightly.
Your voice is more musical, or more husky, more inviting.
Your emotions seem more powerful and intense.
“Your mood can swing wildly, depending on whether you're getting positive signals from him or not.
You feel more alive. This is one of the most dangerous elements of emotional attraction.
The intensification of feeling and sensation that accompanies new love can be a powerful turn-on,” she commented.
