Readers reveal: "I knew I'd gone too far when...""The guy who I was flirting with regularly over e-mail attended the same event as me and my fiancÃ©. When I introduced them, my face flushed as red as a tomato â€” I felt embarrassed and guilty about my fiancÃ© meeting this guy, so I knew what I was doing was wrong." â€”Carolyn, 31, Westfield, NJ"One drunken night, my best guy friend and I confessed we had always liked each other. He was a perfect gentleman and left my place before we crossed the physical line. The next day I was completely embarrassed and knew that I didn't want to jeopardize the relationship with my boyfriend so I ended the friendship. And now the boyfriend is my husband, so I'm glad I did." â€”Allie, 29, Yonkers, NY"The cute tech guy who I'd been flirting with at my office said to me, 'You're not going to invite me in?' after I accepted a ride home from him. I liked the attention of him buying me vending machine snacks and complimenting me, but my husband would've had a holy heart attack if he knew." â€”Amy, 38, Chicago"My best guy friend and I were snuggled on his couch underneath a blanket when I realized that neither his girlfriend nor my boyfriend would be happy if they saw us â€” and that our platonic relationship wasn't as platonic as we thought." â€”Kim, 35, New Orleans
