Emotional cheating

If you form a deep emotional connection with someone with a third person where you share intimate thoughts, feelings and experiences with them, then it’s emotional cheating.

Cheating in virtual world

If you engage in flirtatious conversations with someone on a social media platform, that also includes dating apps, then you’re cheating on your partner. It shows that you’re looking for some kind of gratification elsewhere and that’s equivalent to wronging your partner in some way.

Not sharing about your financial transactions

Whether it is a debt you have taken or expenditure you have done without keeping your partner in loop, this kind of behaviour can erode the trust between you and your partner and make them feel betrayed in a way.

Neglecting the relationship deliberately

If you’re intentionally investing your time, energy and attention on someone else other than your partner, it is a form of cheating. You could be spending extra hours at work, pursuing your hobbies or even friendship over your relationship and this is in a way wronging your partner.

Fantasising about others

While you may think that there’s nothing wrong in fantasising about being with someone else, but come to think of it, it is. It can also lead to emotional distance between you and your partner.

Seeking validation outside the relationship

If you bank upon someone else to fulfill your emotional needs, then it’s a writing on the wall. Seeking validation from others instead of your partner can create distance between you and your partner.

Withholding affection

If you withhold your affection and avoid getting intimate with your partner because you have started developing feelings for someone else, then it’s a form of cheating.
