The Human Desire
Work husbands/ wives, best friends, and/ or co-workers and at the top of the list when it comes to who people are likely to cheat with. However, being tempted to get intimate with someone besides your partner is not a crime, after all, it’s not like once we get hitched our attraction for other people vanishes into thin air; what matters most is how you respond to this temptation, and perhaps how frequently it occurs. To help you make better decisions, there are things you can do when if ever you’re tempted to sneak behind your partners back.
While you may consider emotional attachment to be a form of cheating, your partner’s idea of cheating might be only be when things get physical. So, if you’re yet to discuss what constitutes as cheating, maybe it’s time you have that conversation.
6 Ways to Overcome Temptation
1. Don’t Pretend it’s Not Happening
If ever you’re tempted to cheat, don’t act as if the temptation is not there. Don’t disregard it or bury yourself in activities for the sole purpose of distracting yourself. Simply ignoring the problem won’t make it go away, instead, figure out if there’s something your relationship that is causing you to think these thoughts
2. Don’t Be Ashamed of Your Thoughts
Don’t get caught up in your own head, avoid self-loathing and don’t think that you’re evil because you’re having thoughts about infidelity. Instead, be kind to yourself. The thought of getting intimate with somebody other than your partner is something that many people experience; just make sure that these thoughts don’t linger for too long. We say this because the more time you spend dwelling on these thoughts/fantasies, the more you may be tempted to carry them out.
3. Nip Temptation in the Bud
Being tempted to cheat on your partner with someone you’re close with like a friend/ colleague can be overwhelming. This is especially true if you and this person have good chemistry and spend a lot of time around one another. In truth, it only takes a bad patch in your relationship to cause you to stray, so, before it gets that far, you should distance yourself from this person.
4. Think About the Consequences of Your Actions
Take some time to consider what may happen if you wind up cheating on your partner. While it may feel great in the moment, how will you feel after? More often than not, people underestimate the feelings of guilt, sadness, and loneliness that overcome them after being unfaithful to their lover. In order to avoid making a mistake that you may regret, think ahead and ask yourself, ‘Is it really worth it?’
5. Rekindle Your Relationship
A lot of the time, when someone is tempted to cheat it’s because their relationship has become a bore. They no longer have anything to look forward to and every passing day seems to mesh into one. To avoid this, try doing new, exciting, and unexpected things with your partner so that things never become stale.
6. Take Time Out
If after multiple attempts to curb the feelings of temptation you’re unable to shake the thoughts you’re having, maybe what you need is a break. However, don’t use this break as an excuse to go and be with the person you had in mind. Instead, take this time to figure out exactly what it is that you want.
