    Being in a committed relationship is not like dying. I was married to the love of my life (now deceased) for more than forty years and neither of us ceased having attractions to other people. Anyone (or any heterosexual) who thinks it is not normal to be attracted to other members of the opposite sex when in a committed relationship is denying their own human nature.

    Little side crushes can happen to anyone. I love my mrs more than anyone but sometimes I meet lovely women who are beautiful, intelligent, funny and kind and I feel like I've got a little crush but that always goes away in the end... usually by getting to know them more and finding out they hate penguins or something stupid.

    I think everyone does... it shows you love your bf if you have these and know your relationship means too much to act on them so I wouldn't worry.

    I don't think you're in love with your boyfriend OR maybe you really just don't know what a crush is. I don't think you can have a crush on someone (think he's gorgeous, admire everything about him, hope he notices you, want to kiss him, want him to ask you out etc) while loving your boyfriend. Perhaps that's just me though. And the length of time you've been together is useless for this question. The amount of time you've been together is not a testament of anything. For all we know, while you're doing sexual things with your boyfriend, you have other guys faces in your head. This would certainly allow you to remain in a secure relationship while having the excitement of the side crushes.

    Take some time to think on this because it's just not fair to your boyfriend.

    the more side crushes you have, the higher the odds are that you will act on at least one...you obviously suffer from commitment issues and are not aware of it...
