What's the difference between an affair and cheating and which is it if you talk on the phone and have done almost everything but have sex and this has been going on for a few years now?

Whether you have had sex or not you are still cheating and an affair is the same thing and just a nicer way of saying it! When in doubt put yourself in your mate's shoes and see how you would like it if she/he was seeing someone, but not having sex (and I doubt that!)

People who cheat are selfish and egotistical not to mention pathetic. If they don't love their wife, girlfriend, husband or boyfriend they can split-up, but a cheater wants it all. Why? Because they love "the chase" and sneaking around. Some even hope they get caught! Cheaters usually have low self confidence and need to be stroked constantly and told they are handsome, pretty, etc. Deep inside they feel if it doesn't work out with the person they are cheating with they always have their good old comfy mate to go back to. It's a sick and cruel thing to do to someone you had once told you loved. If you don't love them, have the courage to tell them and move on (even if children are involved.) I've never seen a cheater yet that didn't pay dearly from their actions.

Make up your mind as to what person you want to be with. If you don't you could end up losing both.
