Sex & the Single Woman: Cheating Without Knowing It

I firmly believe that there are some men you will never get over. They affect you in such a profound way that you cannot help but hold onto a small piece of them. At what point, however, is this attachment hurtful to future relationships?

Having remained friends with so many guys I’ve dated, I feel like it’s harder to shed that attachment. I still care very much for some of them. If I continue to feel this way, but proceed to date a guy I really care about, am I emotionally cheating on him?

Relationships have an ambiguity that raises so many moral questions. I try not to burn bridges with men, but will allowing myself to care for them eventually sabotage every relationship I will have? Or will a relationship come along that is so meaningful that all of my exes will become irrelevant?
