You would have regretted it even more if you had done it!!!!!!!! Passion wanes in every relationship, if you are truly in love with this man, you would find ways to work on the relationship and bring back the passion. Imagine being with someone for 20+ years! How much more difficult it would be to sustain the passion. You will probably have many more opportunities to cheat. This doesn't mean it is the right thing to do. If you really love him, then it's time to communicate and see how he feels about the relationship. If you really want to sex with some random dudes, then break it off first with your bf. How would you feel if he cheated on you with some random girl?

hummm, guessing you are very young. like high school young. even people in love, in committed relationships think "what would that be like". thinking is not the same as doing. and btw, just about any woman has the opportunity to have a one night stand just about any day she is breathing. men are interested in sex at all times and are able to block out the bad and see something sexually attractive in every woman.forgive. and move on :)

of course forgive, you can't help how you feel, but you can help how you act on it, and you didn't.

Forgive. You didn't do anything wrong, and it maybe opened up feelings that will make you rethink your current relationship. Good luck!

Forgive. But unlike most people here, I think you should have went for for one-nighter if you really wanted to. Life is short. And it's definitely too short to waste with a boyfriend that you aren't all hot & bothered about. I'd say break up with him.

Forgive - there's no place for blame in thought. We have free minds and - holy cow - mine sometimes goes all across the board. You acted responsibly so good for you. Time to keep it up though and really look at your relationship. IMO it's breakup time if you have moved so far away from your relationship with your bf that you are attracted to other guys but you're the only one who would know for sure. Talk to him at the very least and see if he feels the same and decide whether you both feel up to working things out. If they don't, you have a clean break and you're ready for guilt free dating again. Good luck!

forgive - you didn't actually do it. and good for you for not doing it b/c you probably would have felt even worse after that. talk to your boyfriend, end things with him, whatever it takes to make you feel better and feel loved. then you can go out and find a guy who actually loves you or hang out with girl friends who appreciate you.

Forgive- you didn't act upon it, BUT you should be worried that you were thinking about it and now you regret not taking the opportunity. I don't know if this post was edited and we're just not getting the full story, but just because your bf is treating you more like a friend now IS NOT an excuse to cheat. You need to talk things over and either refresh your relationship or break things off completely. The most important factor here is you are not happy in your relationship so something needs to be done about it.

forgive...you didn't do anything wrong. but, you have stumbled onto something. you think your boyfriend doesn't love you anymore...you've had the urge to be with someone else. maybe it's time to end things with your guy.

I think that to be fair with your boyfriend, you should talk about how you are feeling at the moment because if you're starting to get these thoughts than maybe one day you'll actually act upon it.So, talk to him about not being close anymore and how it's affecting you mentally and emotionally...If things don't straighten up, maybe it's time to move forward...

Forgive- you didn't do it and that's what matters. if you DID do it, I am sure you would be regretting it too! Take this chance to open your eyes and see what the future holds (if any) with your current boyfriend.

Forgive ... but it's important to talk to your boyfriend about the feelings you are having [not about wanting to cheat, but about the fact that you don't feel like he loves you anymore].

I say forgive - because you didn't give in to the impulse. But, you should really work things out with your boyfriend - either work on your relationship or break it off and move on.

I am glad that you didn't act on it because it is unfair to your boyfriend. You should settle things with him first before moving on. I said unforgive - although you didn't physically cheated on your bf, you did mentally. If he finds out, I am sure it would hurt him a great deal. If your bf has regrets like yours, will you forgive him?
