F infatuated


Hi Coach! I’ve got a lunch planned with a man I’ve met once through work. We got along well and this is a friendly lunch. He is married, I’m married. I don’t know him very well, I’m very happy I’ve got the opportunity to know him better because I’m interested in what he’s doing professionally.
A part of me is attracted to him as a man, more precisely to the idea of him. I don’t really know if I’m really attracted to him because we met very briefly. But even before I met him the first time, I was very attracted to what he is doing and how he was presented to me.

I’m very excited by this lunch and very excited every time I read an email from him. I’m thinking about it all the time, I’m talking to him in my head, writing emails to him in my head. I feel infatuated. I know it’s not real. I know I don’t want to nurture it, because I’m married! But I guess I want to accept it in a way, it’s here and only mean I’m a female human being, feeling sometimes very excited by male human beings…
