Today’s topic: Sorting out my feelings Dear Morning Crew, I am a 50 year old married woman, who, over the last year, has become very close to a coworker(male). When I say close, I mean we shared lunches and breaks together. He always listened to me. Over the course of these months I developed very intense feelings for this man, to the point, I hated weekends because I knew it meant two days away from him. In the meantime, my husband whom I love had no clue that our sex life was better because of my fantasies of this coworker. The relationship never went beyond flirting. He looked at me in ways that made me feel 19 again. My dilema today is he no longer acts the same towards me. He still says hi, but the look is gone. Why do I feel so ashamed, I feel like an “old fool,” all the confidence I felt several weeks ago is gone. How can I get those feelings for my husband? Please advise.
