Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hi, I hope I can offer some help with your question.

I think it is probably fair to say that everyone will do this to some extent at some time or another. Being in a happy and fulfilling relationship can sometimes even be enhanced by thoughts or fantasies of other people. The extent of these thoughts and feeligs will determine the extent to which this could become an issue for you or the relationship, for example if you have deeper feelings about the other person., or you wanted to further pursue these feelings, however just fleeting thoughts isn't that unusual, and doesn't need to be any more than that.
