Former therapist as soul mate
I've been married to a good man for 11 years whom I love dearly -- but I think I may be *in love* with my former therapist of 8 years from 15 years ago, and I think he might be able to be/is already in love with me.
I don't plan to do anything about this, other than perhaps one day to lay my feelings on the table with my former therapist and tell him I believe he feels the same way --> acknowledgment is important.
We have both have long-standing relationships of 11 years with other peoole, and we're both principled ... but you know, sometimes you fantasize about ... what if you weren't?
(Well, if we weren't, then the lure and attraction wouldn't be so intense! Duh. My husband is a good man, and I honestly don't think I'd hurt him, even for the sake of a soul mate ... yes, he matters that much to me.)
