Flirting With Other Guys When You're in a Relationship

The Enchanted Life: I Want You to Want Me

Here's a post from OnSugar blog The Enchanted Life.

I need you to need me.

Story of my life, I swear to God. Finally meet a good, kind, cute, STRAIGHT man and WHAM! Out of the woodwork come crawling ten more.

It's like reverse Karma. Everything you've ever wanted will come to you . . . after you've already decided on something else. And I know, I know, it has nothing to do with King. I love him and his crazy ass. It's me. I'm obsessed with the Honeymoon period. Once the glitz and glamma runs out of a relationship, I go running to someone else.

I'm a weenie.

There, I said it. I admit it. Once I have to REALLY give and REALLY care and REALLY be there, and not just because I have a cute outfit on, sh*t starts to feel claustrophobic and I start to get running. Immature, childish, cowardly — go ahead, pile it on, I can take it. Because here I am again, flirting with strangers.

Get the rest after the jump.

Perhaps it's my way of feeling like I'm still Me even though I am now part of a We? I know he would never even think about flirting, it would never cross his mind. That's just the kind of person he is. He's like hot chocolate on a cold winter's day — hot chocolate will not let you down and neither will he. I, on the other hand, am paragonable to Vodka — sounded like a good idea at the time and it was good times for a while, but it will be the worst hangover you ever had.

Trufax.

But this is where I am at, every time I think of what would happen if I ever became a big enough asshole to cheat on him, and just the thought of him suffering for something I did makes me feel like throwing myself under a bus. And this is how I know I love him.

Way more than I thought I did.

Peace, love and cupcakes,

Belle xxo

No worries, I got the post and understood what you were saying at the end:) I'm in a similar situation myself so it made me think. Good writing:)

The post was exactly about that. The fact that I no longer behave like this. It's like no one seemed to get that the whole point of the post is that finally I'm at a point in my life where I think before I act. I have never been unfaithful to King, and I never will - I have only ever been unfaithful once in my life and it was possibly the worst thing that I've ever done. Flirting harmlessly does not equal cheating. there are no come ons, no sexy dancing - when has witty banter ever led to bloodshed???? I love this boy and I know that what we have is real and I think twice before doing anything which could even remotely put that in danger...did I write the post in a different language or something, MissSushi???

I don't think their qualms are about your writing abilities and style. It's about your lack of shame with the destruction you wreak upon innocent peoples lives with selfish behaviors.

Thanks for your input, you guys, I appreciate it. Sorry my 'bad amateur poetry' is not what you're used to...but I'm trying to figure myself out, if it sounds amateur and 14-year-oldish it's because I've never taken the time to do so before now - and that's not meant to sound snide or snarky, I do appreciate being called out on my shortcomings, it's the only way I'll ever learn to be a grown up an accept myself and be a responsible human being. No idea who DearSugar is/was...but if you guys really think I'm that bad at writing about my life, please stop reading. Constructive criticism, not snide jabs, please! thanks! Belle xoxo

Sigh. What annoys me about this post is that despite what you say you clearly don't feel that bad about your behaviour. You act this way to feel like he loves more than you love him, and that you have more power in the relationship. That's a case of really low self-esteem, seek help.
