The 10 Red Flags of Emotional Cheating

While it’s easy to define physical affair, emotional cheating is far more vague.

A lot of questions come to mind when it comes to emotional cheating. What constitutes it? When do you cross the line between friendship and an affair? Does it need to be physical before you consider it cheating?

And so, it is important to know the warning signs that your partner had gone astray in your relationship. Your partner may have not went too far as to exchange a kiss or snuggle up with someone, but his/her late night texting or sharing too much information with another person may be enough to consider him/her cheating on you.

Here, we’ve rounded up some answers we’ve found on Reddit from people who think that these are the red flags of emotional cheating that you should watch out for in your partner.
