Heartbeat: Old vs Fresh

Cheating Girlfriend

Here’s a story from a girl in her mid-late twenties. Please read and share your thoughts! And don’t forget to vote!

“I met my boyfriend in college and we’ve been dating for over 5 years. He’s a nice and very understanding guy. But he’s been so busy at work lately that we haven’t been able to see each other often lately. So… I’ve been bugging him. I was lonely.

Anyways, so last summer I met a friend that I’ve known since 6 years ago. We have a lot in common and he’s really easy to talk to. We hadn’t seen each other for a long time, and maybe that’s the reason but when I saw him, he was very… attractive.

After a while, we decided to meet up again. But for some reason… I did a full body scrub, shaved, wore hot lingerie, dressed up and even wore new high heels. Since I usually spend time with my boyfriend at home, it really felt like a real date.

We started drinking. I got a little tipsy and sat next to him. I leaned on his shoulder and rested my hands on his thighs. Needless to say, that night we ended up confirming chemistry between us that was far beyond typical friendship.

Since then, I told him, “I have a boyfriend, but I like you too. Is that OK?”

He said he just wanted to be with me, in whatever role or relationship possible. So thus started our new relationship. At first, I thought it was just a physical attraction, lust. But as we continued to see each other, everything was just perfect.

The problem is, my boyfriend is the same. I love them both. I love my boyfriend because he’s relaxed and very understanding. But he doesn’t focus on me as much. On the other hand, the other guy just focuses on me. Only me. His downside is that he’s a little sensitive so it can be tiring at times.

My boyfriend has a handsome face, but his sense of fashion or physique can be disappointing at times. The other guy isn’t as handsome as my  boyfriend, but he has as really nice body and dresses just the way I like. He’s also got a bit more money than my boyfriend.

I can’t help but love both of them. The best part is that since I’ve met this guy, my relationship with my boyfriend has gotten better too. I could say everyone’s happy!

Well I’m not as young as I used to be and need to start thinking about getting married. I consider this my last ‘love affair’. My boyfriend whom I’ve loved for a long time, and this fresh new guy. I can’t choose. He’s said that as long as my boyfriend doesn’t know, he’s fine with keeping it this way.

What should I do? Can I keep this up?”
