Does this sound familiar?
“If he fantasizes about someone other than me,” you think to yourself, “then he must not love me.”
Or worse: He must not find me attractive, he must want to leave me, he must be a pervert — and so on.

Choices are real. Fantasy is in your head. And fantasy can be healthy.
I explain why in this article, which first appeared in the Reno Gazette-Journal.
