comment Can “guilty” be used to express remorse without preceding it with “feel”?
Well you can use: 'The affair left her emptier than she thought, filled with guilt.' or The affair left her emptier than she thought, guilt-ridden.' . That really implies remorse for me.

comment Informal way of saying “on the contrary”?
Just the other way around literally implies just the opposite direction, the other way, that you stay on the opposite site of where you want to be. I have seen it used in fairy tales. Maybe what you think about is the direction of moving, so it sounds awkward to you. I won't argue if it is idiomatic as we are both not native speakers, so it is pointless.

comment Informal way of saying “on the contrary”?
Bullish for me carries the slight connotation of deception. So you have believed, that the casual encounters will work for you.
