Cheating is never a good thing and email flirting could be a way to start going down that slippery slope. There’s a fine line between friendly banter and crossing boundaries. You might not even realize you’re crossing the line until it’s too late.
In today’s digital age, online communication has become increasingly popular – making it even easier for relationships to become strained. You don’t want to risk damaging your relationship by keeping secrets or engaging in activities that could be perceived as cheating.
Beyond the pain of knowing your partner strayed, cheating carries a deeper wound – that he or she sought intimate connection with someone else outside of you. It’s understandable that your partner will feel betrayed if this behavior comes to light.
If you find yourself flirting with someone other than your significant other via email, then it’s time to take a step back and consider where things are headed. Is this just harmless fun or could it lead to an affair? Are these emails more than innocent banter?
You need to think about why you’re emailing someone other than your partner. Are you feeling neglected in your relationship or just wanting some extra attention? Are you looking for something more, even if it’s just a little fantasy? Or are these emails simply harmless fun and nothing more?
In the end, have a honest with yourself and your partner about what’s going on. If you think things could lead to an affair, talk it out with your partner before it gets too far down the line. Communication is key to a healthy relationship and being upfront about these types of situations can help prevent any emotional damage that could be caused by cheating.
