I Had an Affair With a Married Man—and We Never Even Kissed
Most of us don't set out to be homewreckers at any point in time, but that doesn't mean that we're totally immune to feeling attracted to a married guy. It happens. He's still a guy after all. As a disclaimer, I am in no way suggesting that you ever go after a married person, but I am acknowledging that you might have some weird thoughts about it while you are attracted to him.
Not that you're ever going to act on it, right??? Generally, you hang out and see what happens, but not this time. Here are some thoughts that every woman goes through when she's battling an attraction to a married man.
It all starts with a simple realization that he is totally hot. Maybe he's just generally a hot guy, or maybe there's something about the fact that he's married that makes him seem even hotter. Some people really want what they can't have after all, which might actually be a bigger symptom of some commitment issues. Or maybe at this point, you don't even know he's married because he's not wearing a ring or whatever.
But at the moment you're just struck by how hot he is. Great eyes, great style, where did this guy come from?! He's definitely it. He looks like the one, and you can already tell that he has a great sense of humor that totally compliments yours and that you two would spend your days your laughing and making out and you won't ever have to talk to or look at another man again. You're already getting ready to text your best friend about your new find.
Maybe even your mom too. This guy is totally married. It's like finding out that your celebrity crush has a girlfriend. The overall vibe you feel is "how dare they? But still, how dare they? You can't help but wonder if you had the chance to go back in time if things had turned out differently. But then you also start to wonder like, how married is he? He could be technically married and separating for sure.
He could be newly married to the wrong person definitely. Oh, he's happily married to a really wonderful and hot woman? Got it. But you like your life so you stop that thought pretty quickly. You generally have a pretty good idea when people have a massive crush on you, so now you're totally self conscious that he knows how you feel. Like to the point that you're probably making yourself even more obvious because you're acting like a weirdo. Was that a stutter? A blabber?
Great, now you're blushing. He totally knows, doesn't he? In fact, you relish that because there's always the chance that he's interested back. But in this case you feel like it's indecent to even be thinking about it, like you're doing something wrong by being interested in him and you have to hide it for the sake of everyone involved.
Especially if you work with this guy or something ugh. Talk about awkward, always trying and failing to cover up a crush that seems to turn you into some sort of strange mush ball version of yourself that you haven't seen since middle school.
This is the part where you can't stop thinking about him and daydreaming about being with him and you start to question what's wrong with your thought process. There are a million available guys not too far away and some of them must be cute, and yet you managed to find the one guy who's not even just not single, he's married. Not in a relationship or engaged to be married. Totally married. This might not be the first time that you've been attracted to a taken man before either, which is definitely freaking you out even more.
In fact you've done this a few times. It's like you have a radar for the hot guys who can actually commit but only because they have actually already committed. You need to rework that to also include the hot guys who are ready to commit but have not yet already committed. How do you do that? Does this require therapy? Would you actually even like this married guy if he wasn't married and unavailable?
In the circumstances where you're actually friendly with him or both him and his wife, it's always possible that one of them could invite you over. And that sounds like both an amazing way to spend your evening as well as an f-ing terrible one.
Not only will he be able to tell that you totally have a crush on him, but his wife will. No doubt about it, a woman's intuition is all over that. In fact, she probably already dreamed about your crush or someone saw you blush at work and passed the news on and she already hates you. Okay maybe not that extreme, but for sure she will notice that you can't look him in the face when you're all sitting down at a group dinner.
The problem is that if you start to look at him you might never stop, and then everyone in the world will know and they might suspect that something is going on that isn't, and then you'll get a reputation that you don't deserve and didn't even get anything good out of.
Of course, there's always the possibility that these two are both a little interested in you and have considered you to be the third party in their kinky married fantasy. It's totally possible. You did sort of feel like he was flirting with you a little bit in front of her and she didn't even bat an eye. Now this could be interesting. But are you actually up for it? The execution of a third party is a lot different than the idea of one for a lot of reasons.
For one thing, there's all these people involved which makes the logistics a little more complicated. And then there's also that thing like what if something goes wrong and someone gets mad, or what happens after the fact? You guys just go back to pretending that nothing ever happened or you do it again and have some sort of weird flirty relationship? Hard to say. And what if people found out?
Also, how do you even know if this is a real possibility or if it's something that you're totally making up in your own head? Then your mind goes to the place where you consider that he could be totally unhappy in his marriage and that he might consider leaving her for you. Not that you've even begun the imaginary affair with him, but you think about if you did.
Would it remain an affair or would he fall madly in love with you? What if you're actually soulmates and this is just the fated way that you were destined to meet and these hurdles to jump over are just tests for you to prove your love for one another and claim what's rightfully yours? Surely this happens sometimes, even outside of romantic comedies, but also even if it did work out it wouldn't be without its struggles.
You reach a point where it seems like the most reasonable plan of action is to completely distract yourself so that you don't think of him at all. But trying to not think of him just makes you think of him. Perhaps there's some sort of mind eraser app or something that you could find to help you sort this out.
You figure the best way to distract yourself from thinking about this guy is to be as busy as possible, so you make plans for every night this week even though you're actually pretty tired already.
But then you realize that in fact being very tired could be a very good thing, because it will help you fall asleep faster instead of spending any time daydreaming about him before you fall asleep. Just stay overly busy and overly tired and then ultimately you'll just come out on the other side and this attraction will be over and done with. Unless it's not and you accidentally drunk text him on one of those weeknight benders that got a little carried away.
Maybe this married guy is also a family man, and instead of that showing you how seriously committed he is to his wife, it just makes you want to have his babies. He's like the hottest dad in the world and the way he cradles those babies and plays with those toddlers has really got you all kinds of fired up.
Why isn't he your baby daddy?! Your kids would be adorable and it's a shame that this isn't happening, really.
Not that you're ready for kids right this second anyway. But you know, maybe you would be if a man like that wanted to marry you. Sure you would.
You could totally tame your single girl ways and learn how to prepare a baby bottle. Babies like boozy brunches don't they? You could just take them along to eat out with your friends and then your hot baby daddy husband could be the designated driver.
Sounds ideal really. But this one, of course, is totally taken. This isn't true, but there's nothing like being attracted to a married man to make you think that it is.
It seems like every time you come across a mega hottie, he's in a relationship if not full on wedded. Totally sucks. But again, sometimes this perspective is a little skewed by other hidden beliefs that aren't true. If you're not totally open to meeting the one your mind might make it hard to impossible to do so, which can sometimes means focusing on the fact that all the good ones are taken. If you don't believe that there are any good ones left, then you certainly won't be as likely to find one to make you think otherwise.
But here's a quick way to turn that thought around.

Help! I’m attracted to a married man
Lisa Marie Bobby Apr 14, Dr. So, you are married but you have a crush on someone else. Hey, it happens. Married people, even happily married people, are also human and as such, are vulnerable to developing crushes on attractive others. It also is not a reflection of your marriage. Believe it or not, having a crush may not mean anything at all. In fact, people in happy, healthy, committed relationships can still develop fluttery feelings for attractive others. Particularly in long-term relationships where the zing of early-stage romantic love has faded into a steady, warm attachment, the part of us that longs for exciting, romantic love may be tickled awake by the presence of an interesting new other.

What matters is how you manage your attraction. Attraction is a funny thing. Because we are all sexual beings, we find ourselves feeling attracted to other people based upon our tastes, feelings and current state of mind.
