Emotional infidelity… Is there really such a thing?

Are you wondering about Emotional Infidelity, what it is and is it ok if you are in a relationship? Well you are not alone. Many people think about infidelity only on one level: the Physical. In fact it is true to say, that many people don’t even believe there is such a thing as Emotional Infidelity. Well they are wrong!

​First of all let us define “Emotional Infidelity!” This classically occurs when someone in a committed relationship forms an emotional attachment with a third person outside of the relationship. This may seem trivial to begin with but it can escalate and become something else – in short, become physical.

So, if you have formed a friendship that you cannot tell your man about then you should seriously ask yourself why? To be perfectly honest, you should not have a friendship with anyone that you cannot openly and honestly discuss with your man. The minute your man is shut out of any part of your life there is a potential for distance. With distance comes real and potential problems to your relationship.

This is not to say that you have to tell your man about every single part of your day. The distinction here is that if you are deliberately hiding a friendship with a third person, and hiding the nature of that friendship, from your man!

What you should also consider, when it comes to Emotional Infidelity, is how your man would feel if he ever found out? Perhaps you are sharing intimate details of your life with your man with your secret friend. How your man would feel about that? Knowing that any problems the two of you are having are being openly discussed by you with someone outside of your relationship. Not only that, someone who could quickly become a destructive element within your relationship?

Emotional Infidelity, might seem like a little bit of harmless fun when you first set out but it can quickly and dangerously escalate into something that can seriously threaten your relationship. You will find that your man will have picked up on the fact that you are even more distant than usual and this is because you are sharing with someone else and pretty soon you are thinking about that someone else more and more.

Once this happens it can often be a short step towards a full on physical relationship and that is why any emotional attachment that your man does not know about it is so dangerous.

If there is a problem in your relationship then it is best sorted out between you and your man and if need be with professional outside help, or perhaps even with trusted friends.

Make no mistake Emotional Infidelity is as dangerous as Physical Infidelity.

Best of luck in love and life.
