My naughty side come out to play today and had a cheeky flirt. He’s very handsome, tall, kind and outgoing . His good morning greeting was warm which instantly drew my attention. I looked up and was happy to see his friendly face then spontaneously mirrored the warmth back with a smile. For a brief second I felt the world had stopped, I didn’t feel like a mother on the school run but rather, an attractive women who radiated beauty and confidence. My day had been suddenly lit up and made brighter.
It does feel like a mutual attraction but very wrong too. We are both married, kids at the same school, live in a small community and know each other’s spouses. A few months back during a gathering we joked and laughed around which I thought was all very innocent. That was until someone came up and asked us if he was my husband. I stopped in my tracks and only realised that we were comfortable in each other’s company to the point we looked like we were together. I began to wonder, that person thought that, then who else observed our closeness. Guilt raced through my mind and I bolted as far away as possible. Damn, did I just get busted flirting?
I hadn’t even realised I had acted completely inappropriately.
How do you feel when you connect instantly with someone who is married or in a relationship? Is it wrong?
