Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many people out there that would really like to know what is emotional cheating. This is the new buzz word that has been circulating ever since the advent of the internet.

Emotional cheating is, to put it simply, cheating without having sexual intercourse. This does not mean that sex is not intended, it just means that there has been no sex for whatever reason. It may be due to location, lack of opportunity etc.

This emotional cheating is primarily done through the medium of some form of messenger service. Examples of this may be MSN Messenger, emails or texting from our phone. For most men, this is considered the safe way of doing things since in their mind cheating is having sex, not talking or in this case texting someone.

This form of cheating also occurs without the help of electronics. It also happens face to face where two people, who enjoy each others company, get togeother as often as possible to express their wants or plans for each other. This occurs more at the workplace then anywhere else, where people share commons bosses, deadline and stresses. This already gives them something in common that makes it easier to take it to the next level.

With this emotional form of cheating the cheater actually feels as if no ill is being done. Especially if it is a cheating man. There are many reasons out there as to why someone would begin cheating emotionally, some af the reasons may be better than others but the truth of the matter is that their are no good reasons to cheat. People cheat because they choose to. Justifications or reasons for cheating are used to do nothing more than ease their conscience.

While emotional cheating does not include sex, it is just as devastating to a relationship. When you realize that your partner prefers the company, conversation or communicating to someone else, it really makes you feel useless. I mean, imagine being cheated on by someone over the internet who your partner has never seen before Then what purpose do you serve in the relationship? Is it that bad the he or she has to find someone else to talk about sex?

Many people can deal with the obvious cut and dried cheating that involves sex. This has been gong on since the beginning of time, but this new emotional cheating has folks very unsure as to how to respond to it and even trying to determine to themselves if is really cheating,
