Linda has been reading several books on love lately. Yesterday we had a rather lengthy discussion about my emotional affair and whether or not I felt it was really love–that is, unconditional love.
I would have to say that at the time I certainly thought it was love, but as the affair experience continued and developed into something that was less desirable, it became clear that it was not real, unconditional love. It was love based on a fantasy – an illusion as we like to say.
We thought that this might be a good topic for discussion…Do you feel that the love that is professed by those involved in affairs is real? Is it, or can it be unconditional? Has your spouse (or you, if in an affair) professed their love to the OP as being real, unconditional love, and do you really believe it?
Please feel free to explain your situation and also offer help to others!
Have a great day!
Doug & Linda
