You bet it is. Emotional relationship or not it's the first step as far as getting serious with that person. You're playing with fire and you know it! Quit with the games or you're going to lose a whole lot.

Time for you to grow up and either accept the person you are with or move on. You need to mature more and realize it's not nice to hurt other people's feelings. If in doubt place yourself in that's person's position and see if you would like to be treated in this manner. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out this one.


AnswerYou obviously think it is, and your partner would think it is or you would not have needed to ask. AnswerYes it is. If she/he was doing this to you, wouldn't you think she/he was cheating on you? Exactly.

Why would your partner need to talk to someone else when she/he has you? ARe you not giving him/her emotional support? Physical needs? Shehe is getting something from both of you. I know this..I have been there!

Good luck

Is chatting on the internet cheating on your partner if its the opposite sex?

Of course not ... chatting = conversation (talk) ... cheating = having an affair (sex) ... so, sex is not conversation ... talk is not an affair. Anyone is entitled to talk to anyone they so choose.Another POV:It can be. The idea that a sexual affair is the only form of cheating is a limited view. An emotional affair can be just as much a betrayal. If you are engaged in a chat/internet relationship with someone to the detriment of your physical, non-virtual relationship, then it is cheating.

ANSWER: Emotional affair generally starts innocently enough as a friendship. Emotional affairs is type of cheating without having a sexual relationship. It's also a gateway affairs leading to a full blown sexual infidelity. This happened to me from the man I married. He met a woman on a dating site because he was hungry to find someone who will listen to him talk. Unfortunately this man is not a talkative person with me from the start of our relationship. and he proven me wrong. Only with me his having a problem communicating. So overall, our life will never be the same anymore.

If a mate is implying you are cheating should you question whether they are cheating?

* No, this does not mean that your mate is cheating because they are implying you are. If you are not cheating then they may have had a past experience (even one parent cheating on another) and they fear you are cheating. Some mates can be extremely jealous of the opposite sex coming anywhere near their partner and both reasons given is due to insecurity. Communication is the most important thing you will ever have in your relationship so the both of you should sit down and you should bluntly ask your mate that you feel they are implying you are cheating and why. If your relationship is mature then it will survive.

What do you do when your wife has cheated with another woman who is her co-worker?

If your wife has not verbally told you herself or you have not caught her in the act then do not listen to gossip and be sure you have the correct information by communicating with your wife. If it is true then it appears your wife may have been either talked into a bisexual relationship or is bisexual and is not gay. This is still considered cheating and you will have to sit down with your wife and ask her what she wants to do about your marriage because you are not willing to live the way she prefers to live. Cheating is cheating whether it is with the same sex or opposite sex.

Is having emotional intimacy cheating?

In general, I believe yes, if it is with someone of the opposite sex. Please consider what type of relationship you want, and how you want to be treated. Becoming emotionally close to someone of the opposite sex may be okay if it's possible to do without any physical attraction. However, I think this is really difficult if that person is not a relative. I can attest from personal experience that this can lead to temptation, and heartbreak. Also, I think you already know the answer to this question. Please remember that you alone are responsible for your choices and they will lead to consequences.

They generally flirt; may be sexual context when texting or even photographs of each other and in some cases nude photographs.

What is the real danger of your spouse emotional affair?

The real danger of a spouse's emotional affair is that often the spouse emotionally cheating does not feel they can come to their married spouse and talk out any problems and there is a huge void of good communication skills. Everyone has marriage problems and the two people in the marriage should be mature enough to discuss anything they are not happy about so they can strengthen their marriage and if this doesn't happen then one of the spouses will often go to the opposite sex to get their slant on the problem at hand and emotions run high and this can lead to a sexual relationship.

My gf has started talking to this guy now for like hours on end and she says they talk about our relationship an we do talk on the phone a lotso i dont know what she really wants Whats up with this?

talking on the phone a lot and having a real physical relationship (not meaning sex but in person relationship doing things together and seeing each other on dates) are two different things. if you and your girlfriend speak mostly on the phone but don't do much of anything else, it's hard to say if that's a relationship. maybe you two should start going on dates more and doing fun things together. but as far as her talking to another guy for hours- about your own relationship with her- that is a form of cheating, called "emotional cheating" which means someone confides in someone else of the opposite sex about emotional matters concerning their current relationship with their boyfriend/girlfriend. these are things that should be discussed between the two in the relationship not with someone else. this could lead to physical cheating because he or she is vulnerable and could feel a connection with the other person since he or she is being there for them. be careful. I would tell her that you don't appreciate what she is doing. you should ask her what she wants out of your's and her's relationship. maybe she is talking to this other guy because she is not happy with her relationship with you- going back to you talking on the phone a lot with her- maybe she wants more than just phone conversations. again make an attempt to start going out on dates more.
