I’m cheating on my boyfriend — he has no idea

DEAR ABBY: I’m in a three-year relationship, however my vital different, “Ron,” is extraordinarily cautious about emotional attachment. It took him two years to inform me he loves me and even to precise any type of severe affection. As well as, he’s consumed by his job and worries about how his co-workers understand him. He appears to prioritize work relationships over our relationship. 

As a result of I’ve been depressed by the meager affection he exhibits me, I started an intimate relationship with a former co-worker, “Dan.” Dan expresses no reservations or restraint in his emotions for me. He makes me really feel appreciated, stunning and beloved. 

I’ve robust emotions for them each and understand I’ve created a horrible scenario. I don’t need to abandon a steady, caring relationship that was cultivated over three years, and I’m terrified that ending the connection in favor of 1 with Dan can be one thing I’ll remorse later.

If you wish to spend your life with an emotionally unavailable workaholic, do the honorable factor and break up with Dan. If what you could have been getting from Dan is extra necessary to you, nicely, you already know the drill.
