'I am attracted to my neighbour'

May 06, 2013, 00:15 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 29 and I have a four-year-old child. My husband keeps travelling due to work. Six months ago we shifted to a new house.

One of the neighbours was a source of great help. He is 33 and single. I got attracted to him and in one weak moment we found ourselves between the sheets. I’m crazy about him — don’t know why! For the past two months we were regularly getting physical. But now he tells me whatever we were doing is incorrect. He wants me to move on but I cannot forget him.

Dear Reshma,
You may be physically attracted to him and got carried away. But thank goodness better sense prevailed. Remember you are indulging in an extra-marital relationship. Have you ever thought about what will happen if your hubby finds out? He may have reciprocated your feelings but realised that this will take him nowhere. He may be single but you are not. You also have a kid. He is right in saying that you forget the episode and move on. The best option is to cut off all contacts with him. If you pine for him you are playing with fire. You will scald yourself as well as your family.

Diana will solve it!
