5 acts that people don’t see as cheating but are
Here are some conduct violations that undermine trust in relationships that should also be regarded as cheating.
Note that women cheat nearly as frequently as men do, but they are rarely caught.
What does cheating mean?
It also involves behaviours that haven’t yet resulted in sexual activity but can leave your partner feeling hurt and betrayed.
We all know that cheating on your partner means having sexual contact with someone other than them.
1. Constantly making calls and texts to other people:
When your partner calls you but the line is busy because you are having a lengthy conversation with someone else, it hurts them more than anything else.
They inquire, “Who were you talking to?” You respond, “It’s just a friend.” That level of proximity and access to you is inappropriate, especially for someone who is the opposite sex of you.
This is the practice of exchanging explicit messages and photos of oneself.
People have reportedly said, “We’re just talking.” We won’t take any action, ever. Just picture the pain your partner would feel if they ever read those chats.
3. Expressing affection for another person:
Saying things like, “I wish I met you before my wife or husband,” “I love you,” “I miss you,” or “I wish you were here” to someone other than your partner is wrong.
It opens the door to having intercourse. This is referred to as emotional cheating.
4. Dating someone else while keeping your partner in the dark:
Going out to eat or see a movie by yourself to just “hang out” with someone of the other sex is absurd.
Any way you look at it, that’s a date, and dates are romantic.
5. Holding hands:
“Just a kiss and hand gestures were exchanged. We didn’t engage in sexual activity.” Sigh! Whatever twisted reasoning you are employing to justify this is absurd. It is cheating to engage in foreplay, which is a sexual activity in and of itself.
