Is it really Cheating?

>If you never see the person is it really considered cheating?  You think “all we do is talk on the phone” or “we only email each other” and now it’s mostly, “I only talk to them on Facebook” or some other social web site and “we never see each other or do anything”.

In the past we had to sneak and have late night phone calls or arrange for private meetings some where but now with the Internet the next interested and/or lonely person is only a computer click away.  Some people argue that in order to cheat, a physical relationship must occur. Others argue that emotional cheating can occur without a physical relationship.  What is your take on the situation?

If your significant other had or has friends of the opposite sex that they regularly communicate with online would it bother you?  If it does/would bother you how do you handle the situation?

  1. >The key word is "Sneak". Anything that you cannot be open and honest about I feel can fall under the catergory of cheating. Why else would you want to keep things from your partner? Meeting up in different locations and sneaking on the phone after your partner has fallen asleep are both signs that something is not right. It causes the relationship to become unstable in many ways and can create deep insecurities within.
