Ok so not too sure where to start. But my DP & I have been together 5 yrs & 3kids. I've Got a friend who lives interstate who I've been friends with for about 8 years now talk weekly & always been there for each other anyway my DP & I split up last yr for a few months & my friend drove interstate to see me & hang out for the weekend. Things got intimate & then he had to drive back home but the contact didn't stop. We talked alot & only didnt end up together because it would mean my moving interstate & uprooting my children & DP most likely wouldn't let me move interstate
But I rekindled things with my DP as he seemed to have improved & was putting in more effort. I still talked to my friend & he respected that I'd chosen to get back with my DP
fast forward a yr & DP has gone back to his old ways things are tense more like we are house mates than partners & I'm still talking to my friend but I think I'm developing feelings towards him. I feel like he's the one that got away. When he even txts me it lifts my mood. He makes me feel like no one else does & treats me the way I want to be treated. & I have no idea what to do about this without ruining my friendship with him which I really value or my relationship with DP. I don't want to lose my family but I can't help the feelings I'm having.
I just don't know what I should do. any advice without flaming me would be great as I feel $hit7y enough about it all as is. TIA
