I'd Do It Again

I live with my long-time girlfriend and we get along great but neither one of us are interested in sex.  We do it occasionally, maybe once every 3 months or so.  There's little affection or romance, but oddly enough our relationship works. 

A couple years ago, I ended an affair with a co-worker that started as it intended - just sex.  She developed feelings that caused conflict and things just fell apart and she got hurt.

Even considering my past experience, I STILL would pursue an affair if the opportunity presented itself.  I'm drawn to the notion of having an affectionate relationship without the responsibility of the day-to-day crap that burdens most marriages.

Don't think that I don't know that this is wrong.  What I've done in the past is wrong, and the fact that I'm willing to do it again shines a light on a flawed part of my character.

hi i too have been down this road with my bf and was seeing someone purely for sex and it got complicated when i developed feelings for him although i love my bf he just isnt the most sensitive person in the world and i got carried away with the affection this guy was giving me but now its ended i still think bout doin it but i woudnt risk what i have with my bf and if you love your gf then you should maybe steer clear of the temptation and avoid situations which are going to result in an affair hope this was helpful :)

I understand this completely.
