2021 Emotional Affair Journey Reader Survey

By Linda & Doug

Every so often  we like to take the pulse of the readers by conducting a reader survey.  Well, it’s that time again! (Especially since it’s been since 2017 since we conducted one!)

So…We’d appreciate it very much if you could help us out and take this confidential 16-question survey.  

We know, that seems like a lot of questions, but the vast majority require just one-click to answer. It should only take you about 4 minutes to complete.

Since your needs are constantly evolving – as well as readers coming and going to Emotional Affair Journey –  these surveys are always very important as they help us to determine what is most important to you guys so that we can address your issues in future posts or with other resources. 

The survey is below for you to complete.  Just scroll down a bit and you can start right here on this page.  Or, you can click here and go to a separate page to complete it.

Remember that there are 16 questions in all, so you will have to use the slider thingy on the right side of the box to scroll down to answer all the questions.  And make sure you press the “Done” button when you’re finished. 

If you’re on a cell phone, more than likely there will not be the slider thingy and instead you will just need to “slide” down using your finger through the survey to answer the questions. (We hope that makes sense!)

We will report back to you the results in a week or so, or as soon as we get a substantial amount of responses. 

Stay tuned because there are always some interesting findings and/or tidbits that come out of these things.

Thank you so much.  We really appreciate your time!

      Hit a red flag last week on recognizing spouse in emotional affair and his attempt to make me feel guilty. He discourages me seeking the peer support I need because of his guilt. and. thus denies me support while he is off in la la land. Fortunately just found own therapist.

      My husband has just owned up to being angry with himself. He says it’s grinding him down. His affair ended about a year ago. We are in recovery although lack of intimacy is a problem as he seems to be holding back. I do feel this is a break through because up until now he has answered questions but this is the first time he has admitted to how he is feeling. I’m hoping we can move forward but I’m unsure about how I can help him. He doesn’t like talking about any of it, so it’s taken months to get all the answers I need. I think he’d like to forget the whole damn thing. If only we could. We have been married for 51 years and his affair was for a couple of years with a much younger woman and a so called friend.

      I am not sure I will be able to forgive my husband and would welcome a support group to talk with others in this situation.

        Hi Wendy, I totally understand where you’re coming from. I would suggest reading as much as you can on this site and encourage your husband to as well, IF you think he would be responsive to it. Most will not if they’re still in the affair or just got out of it. Only you will know enough to be able to guess how he would react. The best thing you can do is concentrate on you. Do what you need to do to take care of yourself. Exercise, meditate, eat right, try to get enough sleep, etc. You do you. Good luck and God bless you!

      Hello Wendy:
      Are you sure your husband wants you to keep his affair on the low down because of guilt? Or, is it image control for HIM? The two could be tied together, but his discouragement around you getting the help you need sounds self serving to me.
      As Andy suggested, you do you, and if you need to reach out to your friends and family for support DO IT. Maybe a few select members of your tribe who will support you without telling you what THEY think you should do? Cause ultimately it is up to you, not them. OR HIM. The support of people who care about you could make a big difference to your well being right now. Good for you for finding your own therapist! I hope the therapist recognizes that infidelity is emotional abuse. That was key for me. Best wishes!
