We were sitting close enough together on the edge of his bed that I could feel the heat of his body without actually touching him. A nervous magnetism was keeping us closer together than necessary and, also, just slightly apart. So there we sat, thighs squishing against the sagging side of his bed, waiting for either something or nothing to happen. Matt and I had sex every day sometimes multiple times a day for the first two years of our relationship. I thought, these are my horniest years, something must be wrong with me.

‘I Love My Girlfriend. So Why Do I Keep Cheating on Her?’

Site Logo

Dear Therapist,. I say mostly because there is one problem that always threatens to ruin everything. I have had multiple incidents where I deceived my girlfriend by flirting and secretly communicating with other women, and have had two incidents where I actually kissed other women. Both times my girlfriend found out, and it created incredible upheaval for us. I have been lucky in that I have convinced her to stay, telling her how badly I want to change I do and what I will do to make this work.

I decided to start therapy after the last incident. But I thought that after the first time. I have a pretty difficult relationship with both my parents, but especially my father, who for my entire life has had a romantic relationship with another woman besides my mom.

Though my parents remain married, my dad spends much of his time with this woman, even going on vacations with her. We rarely talk about it in the family, though everyone knows. I never want to be my father and ruin my family the way he has, but I worry that seeing and experiencing all of this as a kid somehow screwed me up for life.

I also think that some of this is about validation. I never really felt loved or supported by my parents who have always been really hard on me. I know deep down they love me, but they were sometimes outright mean to me as a kid and would even call me stupid.

I worry that the love and support I needed then is now being satisfied by me going out and getting attention from girls. I know all of this probably makes me sound like a huge jerk, but I promise you I love my girlfriend more than anything. I want to marry her someday. But I know if I do this again, it will be the last straw. Please, how can I prevent this?

What else can I do? What is wrong with me? Will I be this way forever? Please Help,. A Shitty Boyfriend.

Dear Boyfriend,. When I sat down to respond to your long letter, my first thought was, I need to edit this down. In the same way that people in therapy might take a while to get to the point, I wanted to get to the crux of your question. If you and your therapist were already exploring all of the questions you asked in your letter, what, I wondered, were you asking of me?

I could help you to unpack the terrible dilemma you face in being torn between protecting your mother from heartache and protecting your girlfriend from heartache — and allow you to see how the rage and resentment you likely feel at being obliged to make your mom feel safe might get played out in making your girlfriend feel unsafe by not being faithful to her.

So here you are, forming an emotionally intimate attachment to a reliable woman your therapist , and yet you feel the urge to bring those intimacies to another woman this therapist. Sound familiar? I think you do it for safety. It says, what is this foreign and scary thing coming my way? What if I really am stupid?

Why would she even care about me? What if she thinks I really am a huge jerk? What feels familiar to you is being called stupid. What feels familiar to you is having knowledge of an ongoing betrayal but not being allowed to talk openly about it. What you need more than validation is a sense of safety, and that requires rejiggering the glitchy pathway in your brain that tells you what to run from and what to come closer toward. Tell her about your lifelong anger and pain and disappointment and the deep, deep sadness underlying it all.
