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:
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.
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.
