Technology is meant to keep us more connected but in an ironic twist, it has made some love relationships more complicated than ever. Online cheating are virtual affairs that include sexting, racy exchanges of photos or emails, and flirtations on social networks without necessarily moving onto a physical affair—is yet another way spouses can betray one another. Here is a checklist of warning signs that your significant other is crossing the line and committing online cheating:

Password-protected digital devices
Someone having online affairs or reaching out to strangers for cybersex will keep the email and mobile phones protected with passwords and pin numbers. You, even as a lover, will not have access to these passwords. He or she might also be secretive when online by quickly switching web pages or closing email as soon as someone else walks into the room. If your significant other keeps online or mobile phone activity a secret, then he or she could be having a virtual affair.
Secret Social Media Accounts

If you’re not a friend of your spouse’s on Facebook or Twitter, then he or she could be hiding something from you. If you are a friend, do you know all your spouse’s contacts? Even if you don’t know them all personally, do you know how your spouse knows them? Finding out about the people in your spouse’s various social networks and how he or she uses social networking sites is never a bad idea. And your spouse should know the same about you.

Obsession with responding to online contacts

Obsession with immediately responding to text messages, emails, and Facebook or Twitter messages is another sign that something fishy is going on. However, this warning sign must be considered among others. Truthfully, many of us are addicted to our phones and computers, and some of us are using them more for work and less for pleasure or in innocent ways.

Double Life

Finding out about dual identities online—secret email addresses or social networking pages or a whole other identity in a virtual world—is a betrayal on its own. It’s one that needs to be addressed both as part of a greater conversation about online cheating and as a separate talk about what is a must to divulge.

Leaving a paper or digital trail

Look at your monthly mobile phone bills and the browser history on your computer. These are telling signs of whether your spouse is embroiled in online cheating or Internet pornography. You can see if you’re spending more on text messages and whether there are foreign numbers on the bill. The Internet history can tell you something about the pages your spouse and anyone else who has used the computer has been visiting.

Weird Behavior

One telling sign of an affair is a change in your spouse’s behaviour. A spouse who is suddenly extra nice or extra mean could be compensating for an affair. One might be super sweet out of guilt or super mean in the hopes of justifying his or her behaviour.
