Is he/she cheating?

Description

In a very broad sense, cheating involves betraying a partner’s expectations about the type of contact the cheater has with others. When a husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend, violates one’s expectations about what is appropriate, people feel betrayed. Keep in mind that relationships are not based on logic, but are influenced by our emotions. As a result, cheating is difficult to define because people differ in the type of contact they feel it is appropriate for a partner to have with someone else. For example, some people believe that it is unacceptable for a partner to: Flirt with others Engage in sexual talk with someone else Exchange personal e-mails or text messages Deny being married or in a relationship Spend time with specific individuals Engage in specific types of contact—sleeping in the same bed with another person Purchase intimate gifts and presents for others Chat online with someone else (online affairs) Have sexual contact with someone else (physical infidelity) Become emotionally involved with someone else (emotional infidelity) Develop a crush or feelings for another individual Share their most private thoughts and feelings with someone else Become best friends with someone of the opposite sex
