IT’S not just sexting that could be considered unfaithful.
Aquí, TV psychologist Emma Kenny talks about the other forms of micro-cheating that could damage your relationship.
YOU’RE STILL SUBSCRIBED TO A DATING SITE: Even though you are at a stage where you are meant to be monogamously dating, you keep your dating site subscription to scroll through just in case someone better comes along.
This undermines your current relationship.
YOU HANG OUT WITH SOMEONE YOU FANCY: Spending time with a colleague or friend who you find attractive when you know there is sexual tension between you is only one stepping stone away from being unfaithful.
YOU KEEP UP WITH YOUR EX: You still chat to your ex on social media.
This suggests that you still have feelings for, or have a need for validation by your ex, which means your current relationship is under threat.

YOU DOWNPLAY YOUR ATTRACTION TO SOMEONE ELSE: If you downplay the intensity of your connection with someone outside of your relationship to your current partner then you are actively sabotaging the long-term trust between the two of you.
