Pretty soon, you find yourself glowing every time you spend time with this person. Any contact with the person becomes as potent as a drug addiction.
These addictive love chemicals feel so good that it's difficult for you to even imagine ending contact with your friend.
Your connection feels genuine and even life-sustaining.
Letting go of such intoxicating nourishment seems unimaginable.
A platonic friendship doesn't have elements of sexual chemistry or attraction. In contrast, emotional sex is much more secretive and it drains energy from your primary relationship.
You may love your friend, but you don't fantasize or daydream about him or her. If you're having intimate talks and sharing things you should only be sharing with your primary partner, or you're sending late night 'just thinking of you' flirty texts, you're not having just an innocent friendship.
If you find yourself having sexual or romantic fantasies about your friend, you've crossed the line into emotional sex.
You may argue you're just Facebook friends, or you're just innocently flirting and it means nothing.
To this was more like a game, restated – fourteen (! I was blindfolded some cloth and announced that I had to lick or kiss every girl there.
While I do not make it to the last, the game is over.
