  • It's possible for people to still find others sexually attractive while in a relationship or while in love. However, it's also possible for people to experience a decrease in sexual attraction towards other people when they are in love with someone specific and committed to that relationship. This doesn't mean that they will never feel sexual attraction towards anyone else, but that they may focus more on their partner as a source of attention and affection. Ultimately, it's normal and varies from person to person, but as long as there are no issues or temptations in the relationship, this can be a healthy and positive experience.

    • completely agree and it makes sense 🤣💯

    • @basedbaebecca you nailed it!

  • yes when i feel my SO doesn't spend mite time with me i feel neglected because he is all about workinh my love for him is stronh but i wpuld develop crushes on other people and would be sexually attracted to them. i see a gut with nice body that doesn't turn me on it has no effect. even if i'mbeinb paraded with hottest bodies it will have no effect on me and i think this is one of the biggest misconception of men to women. men think women are like them. i have to feel a certain connection for me to feel sexually attracted

    • sounds like a healthy mindset Sheena, thats good, i really do hope your SO is giving you the time of day Sheena 🙂👃

  • Once your in love? They don’t feel any attraction to other people. Yes people can say oh that’s a nice looking person but that’s it doesn’t mean they want them or find them hot

    • fair enough, i have learned today that some still do 🤷🏽‍♂️

    • But are they truly in love?

    • thats a good question 🤔

  • It's a case-by-case basis, so I won't answer on behalf of others/society.

    I'd answer it that it depends on time. What you describe seems more likely to occur in the early, extremely intense phase of relationships. And how long that lasts just depends on the person. But those chemicals tend to subside eventually. Dopamine is a high. Oxytocin is the bonding hormone. They're different.

    • so is it possible it might me more common in women?

    • I doubt it. Dopamine, oxytocin, and other hormones exist fairly equally in both sexes. I think it might not be sexual attraction but feelings of love, being smitten, whatever. We're high on the person because we enjoy being around them, and part of that is attraction.

    • interesting observation Amanda, i dont know how it all works but maybe it is just random af ha

  • I do not. I’m like you if I like someone I genuinely like them I can’t think of other people and that is even if we are not dating. It’s a bit of a pain bc I have to completely close off bay person before I can think of a new one and many people to play games and make moving forward questionable bc I do not want to hurt anyone. My wiring is bit crossed 😂

    • from what im seeing here this seems to be more common among woman, judging by the poll me and one other person are alone on this and this sucks 🙃

  • Yes it happens quite often

    • fair enough

  • i have blinders on with my mutual crush, he's the only one to me

    • hope it goes well 😆💯

    • 👍👍💕

  • I think people who are at peace with themselves and who are happy and accept themselves as they are are the most attractive.

    • thats good and i agree, its a good quality 🤣

  • In a way yes like I still find other people sexy/attractive even tho I'm married but not to the point where I actually wanna have sex with them.

    • really? i thought you had a huge sex drive and i guess maybe im confusing the two, i see 🤔

    • Yes I have a big sex drive but that doesn't mean I want sex with random people

    • fair enough, im just wondering apples, I don't know about high sex drives lol

  • Nope I only have my eyes on my Iranian crush😌👌🏻

    • thats good, i hope it remains that way lol

    • Yes me too, thank you!😄

    • no problem 😂

  • I wish more guys had your attitude.

    • thanks, i wish the world was different, love would thrive but the way its going now smh

    • Me too 🥲

  • It does still happen.

  • yes people obviously do and a ticking time bomb is placed on the head's of their partners the moment they encounter someone more attractive

    a woman in a relationship with a 7/10 man may be approached by a interested 10/10 man. she might not fall the 10/10 man immediately but the 7/10 man better be on his best behavior or she will consider replacing him with the 10/10

    reverse is the same if a man is in a relationship with a 4/10 woman and a 9/10 woman shows interest in him. the 4/10 woman better be on her best behavior as well

  • Considering that in my country more than 70 pour-cent of men cheat i would say it dont change anything

    • but i thought France was the place of love 😦

    • Is it, it's just men doesn't get when it's time to stop flirting, people flirt all the time even at work and even when they're married, it's very common and being unfaithful isn't a taboo either, I used to work in a townhall and a woman had and affair with a married men and kept talking about it and she also flirted with a guy that was married with children (it sucked cause we were in a open space and I heard all her stories) it was awkward I guess you could say they love too much and too many

    • that sucks, women too 😦

  • Yes, I am only human.

    • lmao fair enough Nikki

  • It still happens, on a lower degree, but increase when there is a deep crisis in a relationship.

  • Yes, but that doesn’t mean you love your crush/partner any less.

  • You can still be attracted to good looking people while in love or in a relationship, you just don’t act on it
