After an Emotional Affair | What you Should Expect

Leading to the Inevitable- After an Emotional affair

Falling in love with a person can get complicated and can be more difficult after an emotional affair.  As hopeful as you might be and as confident you might feel, affairs usually come to an end. Finding someone who has the same interests and also as the physical attraction that you center on can make the temptation so much greater. For some its for the new experience, and for others becoming involved with a past love and yet others a way to escape their current marriage problems. Anyway you look at it the problems always begin after an emotional affair.

Does this Story Seem all too Familiar

The story began with one innocent email through a popular social site that developed into a full blown emotional affair. Daily letters that were written came from deep emotions that were real and life changing. The daily emails turned into phone calls, then the phone calls turned into text messaging. All of these were innocently turning into a landslide of uncontrolled feelings and emotions. The daily routine of thinking about the significant other became commonplace and it seemed as if  it was normal.  The home life and spouse never knew about the emotional affair, so as the days wore on it seemed that the attention and love were misplaced and everything was internally moving toward the new emotional friend.

So how does it feel after an Emotional Affair?

If you are currently in the midst of the affair then the current state of mind is blissful, but once you cross the line to become detached to your new love everything will come crumbling down. If you are in the initial stages of an emotional affair recovery, you will become remorseful, depressed and could find yourself in a state of temporary panic.  Remorseful  due to the possible loss of trust of your spouse and the loss of trust of any children involved. Depressed due to the loss of love from your spouse and the loss of love from the individual you were having an affair with. Panic, yes because you feel like you are out of control.

When dealing with issues of the heart and love that seems to come from deep within, there is nothing that seems to stand in the way, including making future meet up dates.  When two people get together and talk about how much they are in love and start fantasizing about each other there is not much that will get in the way until someone either gets scared and backs out or the affair becomes exposed.  The last thought on your mind is how you will feel or deal with issues after an emotional affair.
