Flirting with danger

Hey you. Yes, YOU, the love fool with the spray paint. I don't give a shit if you want to replace the "C" on my lawn sign with a neon "ST" - but get caught and we'll see who the "stupid" one is.

Bloody hell.

Heads up, Truth followers, I'm in a surly mood and there's not enough Sweethearts in the world to make a dent. My assistant sifted through the hundreds of "relationship" questions you've sent over the past few weeks, and selected this whopper from,

"My best friend's husband and I always flirt, but lately, I feel like he's crossing some boundaries. I'm nervous about my husband thinking the wrong thing if he saw our emails?"

Holy hell, Daisy. This is all kinds of wrong. You're married. He's married. She's your best friend. No wonder "jealous rage" is a growing cause of death.


If he's crossing boundaries, then for God's sake, stop flirting. It doesn't get much more simple than that. Almost everyone has fantasies about having sex with someone other than their spouse - that's normal.

What isn't normal is exchanging sexy emails / texts / googly eyes /body fluids. The initial decision to be unfaithful is rarely ever a rational choice, instead, motivated by circumstance and emotion. Clearly something's messed up in your marriage (not to mention his) - fix it. Or get out. But don't use your best friend's husband to raise your self esteem - emotional infidelity can inflict as much, if not more hurt, pain and suffering as if you're caught actually doing the nasty. Is it worth it?

I know, love bites.
