Even though married people should be off-limits, there are plenty of men (and women) who seem to be blind to binding rings. Men, especially those who “holla” (with their lame hey-miss-lady-pickups), have no problem approaching married women since they are often in it for sex. While it is nice to feel desired and periodically (emphasis on periodic, not often) validate the idea of still having “it,” entertaining too much of the attention is a dangerous game.
You see, affairs don’t just happen. No one accidentally cheats.
For instance, you are enjoying happy hour with a few of your girlfriends at a local lounge and notice something tall, dark and handsome giving you the dimples. As you get up to grab a drink from the bar, he grazes your hand and whispers, “Excuse me.” You can respond one or all of three ways: hear him and keep it moving without pause, listen and smile in stride or embrace him and stop to talk. Know when you stop for conversation, you also open the door for temptation. Enter with caution. Think about how you would want your husband to handle a similar situation and respond accordingly.
