  • But that's very rarely the case.

    但情況其實並非如此。

  • When it comes to affairs, we spent far too long being incensed or secretive, and far too little time trying to understand.

    發生外遇的時候,我們往往都處於憤怒或是不願對外張揚的情況, 卻很少試著去了解背後的原因。

  • In truth, affairs stem from a very fiddly aspect of our romantic psychology.

  • We want them to know our thoughts and to wander freely in their minds too.

    我們想讓對方了解我們的想法,並且也能無拘無束地漫步在對方心中。

  • Any imbalances towards over closeness or over distance may prove catastrophic if left unaddressed.

    任何的不平衡,不管是太親近或是太有距離感,如果不處理,都會引起嚴重的問題。

  • In a relationship which threatens to lean perilously towards over-closeness,

    在一段過度親密到對感情產生威脅的關係中,

  • we can be driven to strain by powerful urge to prove to ourselves that not everything we do and are is owned by the partner.

    我們可能會變得精神緊繃,因為我們急於想要向自己證明,我們做的所有事情和我們本身的存在都不是只為了伴侶。

  • That we remain desirable to the world and a going concern in and of ourselves.

    對這個世界而言,我們仍有魅力且主宰著自己。

  • Going to bed with a new person might not simply be about lust.

    這種距離會被解讀成經常性的拒絕。

  • When we try to touch the partner, they move away or sigh.

    當我們試著觸碰對方,但對方移開身體或是嘆氣。

  • When we bring up something personal, they change the subject.

    當我們提起一些私人的事,他們就轉移話題。

  • We may end up having an affair, not because we don't love the partner anymore, but precisely because we do,

    我們可能會轉而去尋求外遇,並不是因為我們不再愛著對方,準確來說,而是因為我們還愛著對方,

  • and yet the distance they appear to be imposing on us through that lack of engagement feels unendurable and humiliating.

    但這種好像強加於我們身上的距離感,以及缺少參與彼此生活的感覺,讓我們感到難以承受以及尷尬羞恥。

  • It's the final irony that if caught will be accused of not caring when it was caring too much might have inspired the whole mistaken escapade.

    諷刺的是,當外遇的那方被抓到,就會被控訴不再在意對方了,但其實就是因為太在意了,才觸發這一整個錯誤的出軌行為。

  • Tragically, two people almost never enter a relationship with the same needs for distance or closeness.

    悲慘的是,兩個人進入一段感情時,對於親密感與自我空間的需求幾乎不會是一樣的。

  • That's why in every couple, we hear the accusation that one person is too clingy and another is too cold.

    這就是為什麼我們會聽到每對情侶都會指責其中一方太黏,而另一方又太冷淡。

  • These are unhelpfully vicious words for what are at heart just two different ways of feeling comfortable in love.

    這些是毫無幫助的惡毒言語,因為在兩個人心中,對於愛情的舒適度本就不同。

  • It's, therefore, an early imperative in any relationship to work out what the relatively needs for distance and closeness actually are to avoid disjuncture, not to get angry about it.

    所以,為了避免分手或為此而生氣,在交往時就儘早地思考並解決雙方對於自我空間以及親密感的需求是很重要的。

  • And mutually with good humor, to apologize for once distinctive contribution to it.

    並且都用幽默感為曾讓這段關係產生裂縫的行為道歉。

  • Only thus can we hope to ensure that the gap won't lead in an online chat, at a bar or at a conference to a situation where only an affair feels like a plausible solution to the vexing problems of distance and closeness.

    只有這樣,我們才有希望確保兩人之間的代溝不會導致某一方和其他人在網上、酒吧或會議時聊天,落入一個看似外遇才是唯一解決距離感和親暱問題的情況中。

Too often, affairs are seen as the outcome of random horniness or just plain old nastiness.

外遇經常被視為是一時性慾高漲的結果,或只是純粹骯髒噁心的行為。
