Dating two people at one time
It's when you give in to impulse that you've ventured into a land with no return ticket.
"One piece of advice I give people when this happens to them is to not judge yourself for feeling attracted to someone who isn't your partner," Mc Combs explains.
Will they hurt or embarrass them, or create any sort of emotional conflict?
It’s important to protect your partner’s and your own emotional health and wellbeing before anything else.
But whether or not you act on those feelings won’t only affect you.
If you want to date more than one person, make sure that everyone involved understands this and is okay with it. Think about whether you’re ready for the difficult emotions and situations that come with dating multiple people.
One way we do this is by blaming others and their actions for how we are feeling.However, rather than blaming your partner or letting them blame you, recognise that jealousy is a sign that you need to talk with them about what’s happening.It might feel dumb to talk about your emotions, but you’ll both feel happier after you’ve done so, and you’ll have a better idea of what your real feelings are.It’s the age-old excuse people have used to justify longtime affairs (at least in the movies I've seen): I'm in love with my wife, but I'm in love with my mistress, too. A love affair is different than a liaison rooted solely in sex.Surely those encounters can be fully designated to the realm of physical lust.
