Hush the Gush
Is the love of your dreams (your “soul mate,” so to speak) not the person you’re married to? Resist the urge to leak that you’re mad for your mistress. Check yourself: It’s your hormones talking. It’s probably even the Girlfriend Experience* talking.
“New” and “exciting” rarely means you’ve been shot by Cupid’s arrow. Instead, breaking this rule can get you shot down by the public and incriminated. Or worse, just plain shot. It’s not a love story, so keep the intense romantic feelings to yourself. And make every effort to ensure the other half keeps a lid on it too.
*”The precise definition of GFE is murky, but according to the escorts, the term is a catchall for a more-personal touch, including kissing and cuddling. The experience is meant to combine the punch of great sex with the emotional connection—albeit for a limited time—of a relationship.”
