  • If you feel that strongly you could get a divorce.

  • If you are capable of feeling like that towards anyone other than your DH, then that should send up red flags for you. Deal with getting out of that relationship first, then concentrate on the feelings for another. My DH was dealing with a divorce when I first met him, and I waited until he'd solved his issues with her before getting involved. It made for a much more stable ground once we did get together, and I've never regretted the wait. Feelings are never "wrong" (unless they break some code of law or severe moral stance, such as pedophilia, etc) but its your actions and how you follow your feelings that will make the difference.

  • Maybe you should ask yourself what happened to make your DH so undesirable. Make a list of things that bother you that he does/doesn't do and try to figure out if they're really important. Then talk to him about the important ones and see what he says. If you need more attention, tell him. Guys are dumb. They have no idea what we need unless we tell them, and I mean specifically.

    I wonder sometimes if we don't just end up falling for other guys because we think the grass is greener, but the NEW love is fresh and working to get us to fall for them.... in a few years they'll be just the same. Just a thought. Don't be offended.

  • Oooh. One more thought. Before you decide to cut off your relationship with your husband, make sure this other guys feelings are mutual. Wouldn't that STINK if you divorced your DH and then found out the guy wasn't interested ?? PROTECT YOURSELF.

  • I would not worry so much about protecting yourself..
    How about being honest with your DH..

    I feel he has a right to know how his own wife feels about him..

    I am not one to run off and get a divorce without first trying together to work out the marriage..

    But it seems to be that your heart is not with your DH...

    I do not think that is fair...he is your husband and your heart should be with him..
    I would not pursue anything until you finish what is infront of your face...

    If you do pursue it then it would mean that you will have to be unfaithful to your husband,
    you already are emotionally unfaithful..

    Mom always told me to follow my heart, if your heart is not with DH, you need to take
    steps to make yourself happy. I do feel that your DH should be told.

    good luck to you

  • Your feelings follow your thoughts, so you have to stop thinking about the other guy and start thinking about your husband. Think about how you felt about him when you first decided he was the man of your dreams. Think about the positive character traits that he still has. Think about how things could be just as good with him as with the other guy. Then do some things for your husband. Go out of your way to be nice to him. Make his favorite meal. Dress yourself in his favorite outfit on you. Think of all the things that you could do to please him, show appreciation for him, and show him that you want to recapture what may have been lost. I can tell you for certain that if you got with the dream guy, it would not be long until his inadequacies began to show up all over the place. We are all quite good at hiding our warts for a time, but they will eventually start showing themselves. So just love your husband!!!!

  • Oh hon, your in a very bad situation! I'm sure you've heard the saying "The grass is always greener on the other side"....well, believe me it's true. I know you feel you love this guy, and in fact, maybe you do. But you are not in a position to persue this new relationship. Try to think clearly about this, if this new guy were not involved, if you had never met him, would you still want to leave your dh? You really need to deal with your marriage first.....tell the new guy to back off for a bit, get your head straight, and decide if you want to leave your marriage or not...keeping in mind that you wouldn't be going to the new guy. I"m not judging you in any way...I"ve been through alot in my life, and I am telling you what I would tell my own dd.
