[QUOTE=Anti Social]Hi all..Ive been in a relationship for 2 yrs now & for about the last few months I have desperatly missed the 'single life'..I miss g/ out and doing what I want & meeting or hanging out w/ guys & just basically having the freedom.
Does anyone else in a relationship ever get these feelings? What do you think they mean? Are they normal in long term relationships? :confused:[/QUOTE]

I think it would depend on how often you have these feelings. I'm sure when someone has been with someone else for awhile, some of the initial excitement wears off and they may think about being single again. But most of the time, these feelings are fleeting and don't last.

Are you sure you feel the same way about your boyfriend as you did before?

You can still do many of the things you did when you were single, except sleep with one someone else. Maybe you should starting going out with your girlfriends again, and do some things that don't involve your partner. You should always keep your own life and friends, apart from the one you share with your partner.

If the feelings continue and you still feel compelled to be with another man, maybe your current partner is not the right guy for you. I hope you can figure it out and good luck!
Anti Social,

I have been in a relationship for a little over 2 years now. Initial excitement was wonderful, everything seemed perfect. I understand things WILL die down, but when its love, you should still be happy and enjoy life. I think we are in the same boat, so maybe we can help eachother out. My boyfriend has learned to become over protective of me. This past weekend I went out without him for the first time. He texts/calls the entire time because he can't stand the fact im out having fun without him. He isnt always nice to me, very rude for a majority of the time. Seems like he is only happy if something sexual is happening between us. All the other times there are none. SO anyways, I went out and of course this other guy I used to like is there. We danced all night, and there is definitely some chemistry going on there. We have been friends since we were little. He was a gentleman. I know the initial excitement is there, but he is everything that my boyfriend now is not. Now I am stuck in this insanely high stressful life. I can't tell my boyfriend because he knows this other guy, and never likes him..he always knew he posed as a "threat" when it came to our relationship. I do not know what to do, but I can say I am much happier going out that being with him. Im too nice to the point that I spare my feelings before everyone else's and now I think it has caught up with me emotionally and now my body is feeling it. I need help.. any advice would help...but for you Anti Social, really think things through because I dont want you to end up how im feeling right now. Don't ever twist the truth around to make it right. ---SLUGirl
