How to Have an Affair
An affair is a fantasy to disconnect from the realities, painful realities, of life. We want to ease the stress of our lives, so we look for love because love can be a powerful potion against hurt.
In our society, love and marriage have become romantic ideals. Many people honestly believe that true love causes everything to fall into place and run smoothly. And when it doesn’t, they assume what they are experiencing isn’t true love, and they must search for it elsewhere often through an affair.
There are four easy steps to take if you want to have an affair, and they are:
Step One: It could never happen to me. Be cocky about your abilitiy to remain faithful.
Step Two: Start feeling bad for yourself, and be sure to share your deepest most intimate feelings with someone of the opposite sex.
Step Three: Schedule time to be alone with that person of the opposite sex, you know, the one you’ve been sharing your feelings with.
Step Four: Go ahead and justify your behavior, because you deserve better. Now you’re ready to have an affair.
Hopefully, by understanding the steps people take to get involved in an affair, you will learn what to avoid in your own marriage. If you are suffering from the incredibly hurtful effects of an affair, then take a look at what Dr. Harley says about recovering from an affair.
