The private nature of online affairs may make them less painful for the betrayed partner as well.
If you're flirting, sending naked pictures, and kisses etc, that's not call chatting. Cheating can be out drinking, lunch, coffee, dinner, bar, or even straight to the point "sxx" Well, for me, if my bf ever do that, and i will give him a chance, but how long can the women/lady tolerate.. Hello world, I am 30 yrs old and recently out of a relationship.
Consider this reaction: Just as casual sex is not necessarily inherently harmful, neither are online affairs.
But they may be so when participants are also involved in another primary offline relationship, because of the harm imposed on those partners.
In reality, though, the issue of online cheating is more complex—especially when it concerns sexual activities involving actual interaction with other individuals.
People, consciously or not, consider their online sexual relationships as real—they experience psychological states similar to those typically elicited by offline relationships.
Whereas people having online affairs tend to understate their problematic nature, their offline partners typically do not see difference between online and offline affairs: A lack of direct physical contact and face-to-face meetings does not diminish the sense of a violation of their vow of exclusivity.
