Feedback

R calls in to ask how to give herself permission to enjoy loving someone else without feeling so weird and guilty. Minx’s advice:

  • Don’t worry/expect that it will/won’t feel like with your existing partner—it won’t, since it’s a different person.
  • Acknowledge and accept all your emotions, even the negative ones. It’s OK to feel guilty, confused, happy or sexy.
  • Embrace the new relationship like a second child—see what personality the relationship develops, all while making sure the existing relationship is being nurtured as well.
  • If you still feel off after several months, you might just not be all that into that person.
