I think I'm attracted to my husband's business partner's son. Should I try to seduce him?

Do you think he'd be attracted to a woman who smokes?

Honestly, it sounds like you need a hobby. Something else going on in your life. How about art?

Oh Mrs R, are you still up to that shit? You need therapy. Stat.

Yes. Put on some music. Open up about your personal life to him and tell him your husband won't be home for hours.

You've come to the right place. Here at AskMe we'd like to help you learn to help yourself. Look around you, all you see are sympathetic eyes. I say go for it! Maybe you could try sitting with him on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon or going to the candidates' debate. But remember, most of all you've got to hide it from the kids. Good luck!

This kind of thing drives me crazy - asking us to make a decision for you behind another person's back.

Ask *him* what he'd like you to do.

I see absolutely no way this can go wrong. Carpe diem!

Or, how do you say 'he's legal and can make his own decisions' in Latin?

He's trouble. Get your daughter married off asap.

I think many of the other answers are too harsh. Here's to you for asking! It means that you're examining your life and working through your issues. I may be reading too much into this but it sounds like you're trying to relive your youth and that you may even regret marrying your husband. Seducing someone your daughter's age (rhetorically speaking) will not fix that and may cause further complications, perpetuating the cycle, as it were.

There is no try, there is only do.

So do him.
