Re: Talking about transference to your husband/SO? orchid

one more idea: If you ARE going to tell him, I'd recommend starting slowly with discussions about books you've read, or articles on line. Tell him something like, "I read this really interesting article about transference. It said that people can develop strong and fierce attractions to their T's. There was this one case, blah, blah, blah." I mean, just making conversation, but also priming him to understand more about it.

Then, after doing this over a course of weeks or months, you could tentatively bring up YOUR transference. By feeling it out with the previous discussions, you might be able to gauge his reaction & prepare for it.

Just an idea!
