  • No way..not that there is anything wrong with them, it's just not me to be attracted to other people.

  • you are human, this is normal, but you're married. just don't act on it or feed the thought.

  • Definitely not attracted sexually or even emotionally, but his family does have attractive men in it!

  • i agree its normal just dont acr. my x has a very horride family ( and im not just saying that ) but the only good and normal one was his brother. he was kind funny sweet and good looking thoughtful. i admit i had a small crush and he knew it and so did my x. he has also stated if i wasent with his brother he would like to take me out. we ended up being great friends still are even after x and i broke it off. hes still good to talk to and helps me when i need someone to talk to my dd when he dad isent around. hes a great uncle. and me and x are really good friends still..8 yrs later. its normal to have feelings but to never act on them. it can hurt u ur s.o and family. dont be uncomfortable be ur self.

  • I have thought my husband has had friends who were attractive.  That's where it ends though.  I don't think there is anything wrong with that.  My husband and I talk about it together, like "oh so and so is so accomplished and good looking", blah blah blah.  We both do it.  If I found myself actually AROUSED by a friend of his I would immediately tell him.  My hub could deal with that, he wouldn't be so nice if I cheated.

  • My husband has attractive friends, and it is not wrong to notice the scenery. But nothing where it would be uncomfortable for anyone.
