I'm falling for someone.

I am 30 years old and have a partner (40) of around 4 years.

Things have never been great between us but we've had our ups and downs like any couple and we 'got by' ok.

Now I find myself falling for someone else. A man who is involved in the same sport as me (a big part of my life). We see each other regulary, we work together, contact sport, we talk lots. To me, he's everything DP isn't.

He's manly, interesting, takes pride in himself, he's motivated and has hobbies and interests, he works hard, he asks me about my day (something DP never does) he supports my sport (DP hates the time I spend on it) and he compliments me in a non sleezy 'lets shag' way.

I know I am falling for him and everytime I'm with DP I find myself dispising him. He collects pokemon cards which I think is pathetic. He insists on going to bed at 10pm, he moans about his weight yet won't do anything about it. If I go out, he moans. He whinges about my sport, tries to put me down, has NO interests, doesn't do ANYTHING other than work and watch TV. He can't even keep a conversation going.

I feel like I'm going further and further to the other man but i'm torn between wandering if it's my unhappyness with DP that is making me feel this way.

I feel like just moving out and getting it on with the other man but life never works out that simple does it. I don't know what to do, I think about him all the time.

Why don't you leave your partner?. You don't even like him

Even I know who you are and I'm crap at remembering people on here. You obviously don't want anyones advice, so why keep posting?
