So my BF and I are in our early 30s and have been in a serious relationship for 5 years. Today he admitted to me that earlier this week, while out with some guy friends, they met some girls and hung out for a few hours. They all shared a ride home. He says he had been talking to one girl and they ended up sitting next to each other, and at some point he put his hand on her leg, just casually resting there for "a few seconds", as he put it. Then he said he realized what he was doing, stopped and that was it. When he told me about it today he was very tearful and remorseful, and says he doesn't know why it happened. He professed his love for me, how much he values our relationship,etc. I'm just wondering what you all think about this? I honestly am very hurt by it and consider it a form of cheating. Am I overreacting? I just can't get over the thought of him touching another woman, even for a few moments, in the same way he touches me. I should add that they had been drinking (not that it's an excuse). We have nev had any sort of infidelity or suspicion in our relationship before, so this caught me off guard. I think/thought we have a great relationship, and he swears our relationship had nothing to do with this. Can anyone (especially people who have experienced something similar) offer any opinions and advice? Thanks so much in advance....this hurts.
