I love my girlfriend but keep thinking about another girl — am I normal?

WANDERING EYE

DEAR DEIDRE: I LOVE my girlfriend but keep thinking about another girl.

My girlfriend and I are both 24 and have been together for three years. We met in our last year at university.

I love her to bits but fancy one of the girls from work.

Now and then I text her. She knows how I feel because I told her.

I can’t get her out of my mind, from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep. What do you think is wrong with me?

DEIDRE SAYS: It’s normal to find others attractive even if you are in a relationship – but that doesn’t mean it is OK to cross the line.

Don’t throw away a good relationship for a physical infatuation which should pass. It was a mistake to tell the other girl you fancy her, as this just escalates the feelings.

Back off and give yourself time to cool down – you will, unless your relationship with your girlfriend is in real trouble.
