Emotional Infidelity-Know Where to Draw the Line
If you instinctively think of someone at the mention of the term ‘emotional infidelity’ you are probably already in trouble. You might trash and snub the term, but your very protest might just mean that you have a ‘friend’ who is turning into more than ‘just a friend’.
It takes both physical and emotional intimacy to form a relationship. Why then, should only physical straying be considered as infidelity? It is true that sharing your feelings with someone can not be termed as emotional infidelity. But when the emotional connect crosses a limit, you should know where to draw the line.
Know some signs of emotional infidelity:
If you often later summarize your conversations with your friend, you are going the wrong way. You may not have reached the stage of any romantic involvement, but that is definitely where you are headed. If your current relationship really means something to you, this is a good time to drastically cut down on the conversation you have with your friend.
Do you find yourself sharing details of your personal life with this friend? Do you rely on him to unburden yourself about the problems in your relationship? Then you are already knee deep in the emotional affair. Distance yourself from your friend if you want to save your relationship.
If you are particularly happy, or really low, do u rush to tell your friend about it instead of your spouse/boyfriend? If any major happenings in your life make you think of your friend instead of your spouse, you are definitely involved in what is referred to as emotional infidelity. Set your priorities straight.
If you crave for emotional intimacy with this friend and often have imaginary conversations with him in your mind, you are in big trouble. It is only a matter of time before you get into a full blown affair. The only way to avoid this is to completely cut off with your friend.
If you decide to end your current relationship, do yourself a favour by making sure it is the weaknesses and problems in your relationship that is the cause for the breakup, and not your friend. What sort of a relationship you carry on with your friend then, is a different matter altogether.
