I remember it like it was yesterday. It was after I graduated, my boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to visit his family in Malaysia.
We had been dating for a few months already and I was excited to finally meet his parents and siblings. Little did I know, I was about to be tempted by something much more than I bargained for.
When I arrived at his parent’s house, his father was the first person I saw. I could tell he was a kind and gentle man, but I was absolutely taken aback by how handsome he was. He had salt and pepper hair, a strong jawline, and a warm smile. It was almost like looking into a mirror of my boyfriend, just 10 times more handsome.
I was completely mesmerized and almost immediately felt a strong attraction to him.
I tried to push it out of my head, telling myself that it was just a silly thought, but the more time we spent together, the more I was drawn to him. His intelligence, wit, and charm were all very attractive and he seemed to be a devoted husband and loving father.
I eventually started to feel guilty about my feelings. I was ashamed that I was attracted to my boyfriend’s father and felt like I was betraying my boyfriend. I tried to ignore it, but the more I saw him, the more tempted I felt.
I eventually told my boyfriend about my feelings, but he wasn’t too concerned. He told me that it was natural to be drawn to someone like his father and that I shouldn’t feel guilty.
I was relieved to hear that and thankful for his understanding. I decided to take his advice and try to focus on the positive aspects of our relationship. I also made a point to spend more time with his father in order to get to know him better and understand why I was so drawn to him.
In the end, I’m glad that I was honest with my boyfriend about my feelings. Although I was tempted by his father, I was able to resist and stay faithful to my boyfriend. I learned that it’s important to be honest and open about our feelings, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
Although I still feel drawn to his father, I’m happy to say that I’m still in a committed relationship with my boyfriend. I’m thankful for his understanding and support, which allowed me to move past this temptation and stay true to my heart.
