If you are unhappy with your marriage then get divorced, stay single for six months...then start dating.
Honestly though one thing I've realized is that passion in a relationship takes a lot of work to uphold for long periods of time. It's unrealistic
to think that you'd be passionately in love after 10 years unless you had seriously worked on throwing gas at the flame.
One thing you should think about is how your current partner compares to this person as a whole. If you genuinely just do not feel a connection with
your current partner then you should end that before starting an affair.
Affairs always end badly for everyone. Even if you never get caught, you will have to live with the fact that you screwed someone over for the rest
of the relationship. Guilt from cheating is a HORRIBLE feeling(unless you're one of those douchebags that can do it repeatably without being phased).
I remember when I was younger I got drunk and did a one night stand with a really beautiful girl I met at some party, when I was with my gf at time.
It haunted me and made me physically ill. Haunted me to the point that I eventually ended things. No time machines in real life.
New love is very exciting and can blur your vision at times, especially if you're in a relationship where the passion has died.
I would say to take a step back. Decide whether you want to stay with current partner and work on things or if you truly aren't happy. Divorce first
if that's the route you want to go. Wait six months and get things on track. If that person really likes/loves you they will wait. If not then that
will give you time to clear head before dating again.
That's my two cents.
