While it’s natural to find someone else attractive at times, deciding what to do about it is never easy.
It may be their personality or the electric chemistry that both of you share.
A bit of flirting can be harmless, but what if the infatuation grows over time and becomes an obsession?
It is particularly difficult when we find we have feelings for a close friend, especially if they are a mutual friend of you and your partner.
Wherever this new person has popped up from, should you spill the beans or keep it to yourself?
You should be sharing with your girlfriend how you feel all of the time so that it lets them know where you are emotionally. You will find that the effort you put in you will get back.
The best relationships are communication on every level.My arrogance mixed with a variety of legitimate problems caused me to break ties with her, with the hope we could have a cool off period until the school year started.For three weeks she texted me, called me and e-mailed me, begging for me to take her back.Maybe they are a friend who has been right in front of for years, but something has changed. Statistics suggest 50 per cent of those in a relationship have feelings for other people. Maybe they just make you laugh and the everyday drudge of work seem less cumbersome.Depending on where you sit on these things, having a bit of a flirt never did anyone any harm - until of course, it did… Or perhaps you’re just a bit fed up with your partner and in a place where it is easier to acknowledge feelings for someone else.I am a college student and broke up with my girlfriend of five months this last July.
