10 Forms of Non-Physical Cheating That Are Still Considered Cheating

By Nenad Dojcinovski, 17 April 2018


It’s difficult to define loyalty these days. It was easier to deal with the fact that your partner is still a friend with his/her ex when internet wasn’t a thing. But things are a bit complicated now. They could be friends on Facebook, and what if he likes a picture of his/her ex?

Is that a form of non-physical cheating? It could be, but it doesn’t have to be. That’s why it is way more complicated to have a totally honest and loyal relationship with someone in the modern era.

But things go beyond the internet and technology when it comes to non-physical cheating. At the end of the day, these little signs of mistrust could lead to actual cheating.

1You’re too close to your opposite sex-friend


You’ll always need friends in life and you shouldn’t ditch them because you’re in a relationship. But being too close to your opposite sex-friend is not cool at all. Because the closest and best opposite sex-friend is your partner.

2You flirt online and offline


Compared to cheating, you could actually forgive someone for flirting while being in a relationship. However, flirting is the first step that leads to cheating. Online or offline, flirting is simply not acceptable, if of course you’re in a serious relationship and you want things to work out.

3You’re having an affair with your phone


According to a recent survey, nearly 4 in 10 millennials believe that a cell phone can be more helpful than their significant other. This is just wrong on so many levels. No one can compare with the info that Google has to offer. But that doesn’t mean you should put Google in front of your partner. We do live in an era where cell phones are a huge part of our lives. But don’t put yourself in a situation where you check your phone first before even saying “good morning” to the person sleeping next to you.
