  • Just focus on the man you are with. All his good points. As hard as it can be to forget some eye candy it IS possible. Would you want to lose the man you're with? I certainly had that problem with a customer of mine last year. In the end, I liked looking at this man, but I LOVED my husband and now I don't even give that guy a second glance. He's not for me, my husband is for me...

  • Go have a romantic night with your husband. You married him for a reason, you knew he was the one. You just need to remind yourself why he was your prince charming.

  • I think it's normal to be attracted to someone else at times. Usually, it's because they provide something you're not getting from your husband. I really liked a guy who flirted with me and told me how good I looked. I had no interest in pursuing it, but it felt good. So....I told my husband. Funny, he started giving me compliments too!

  • I've been in this situation but it ws reversed. There was a friend who was extremely attracted to me (and to be totally honest, I started to cheat, but caught myself before it got any further) even though I had been (and still am) w/ my dh for 5 yrs. at the time. We've been together for 8 now. But I think it's normal to have "curious feelings" about someone else bc I have. And it was my girlfriends boyfriend (her husband now who was the cousin of the guy who was attracted to me) and they were mutual. They weren't "feelings feelings" more along the lines of "I wonder what it would be like if.......".Nothing ever came of it though. And let me be clear, I'm not bragging but being honest.

  • Appreciate the man that you are with and allow the fantasy to remain a healthy fantasy, not something you would actually do...

  • Keep busy. Through yourself into family, work, friends. Stay away from the person in question. Time is the only thing that helps in matters like these.
