You know, sometimes it just takes a long time to meet somebody you really click with, that is pretty common. Maybe they weren't right for you. Don't read too much into that. My husband was a bachelor until he was 40. He dated a hell of a fucking lot. He said he formed a deep connection with about one out of 20 people he dated. Don't know how common that is to dating at large, but I just wouldn't extrapolate your experience to mean you won't fall for other people ever. You are still possibly in the NRE stage with your girlfriend, and that can make it harder for you to be open to others.
I am not sure why you need to control how you feel about her?
