Is an emotional affair worst than a phsyical one?

Answered 2 months ago

My husband went through a stage of talking to an old "school friend" (female) they'd msg back and forth. Like each other's pictures/post on social media but he was admitted it was nothing. I never heard of this lady before and he would delete the messages between them. Till this day im still not over it. Am I over reacting?

Have an answer?

They're both hurtful and wrong for different reasons.

No. My thoughts would be what else is he doing that you don't know about.

Was it an emotional affair really, or just reconnecting with an old friend? There is a difference between them

But the deleted messages? Doesn't really indicate innocent reconnecting with an old friend...

Yes emotional is far worse the sexual.....
If a man has a one night stand it's just that, sex. If he spends months conversing with a woman wehrer or they've slept together there is obviously some kind of 'feelings' there if he is hiding it.
Husband and I have an understanding that if we wouldn't do it, say it or talk to someone with the other there then it's probably crossing the line
