Is an online or social media sexual adventure really cheating?
Depends if you are a man or a woman says Los Angeles based Human Behavior Expert, Therapist Patrick Wanis PhD. “Generally, men view cheating first as a sexual act while women view cheating first as an emotional act.”
US Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted to lying and sending out lewd photos via Twitter and social media but defended himself by saying he “never met any of these women or had physical relationships at any time.”
“But he is wrong – even if Weiner didn’t meet these online women in person, most women view emotional infidelity as worse, not better, than sexual betrayal” says Dr. Wanis, author of “Get Over It – breakups, betrayals and rejection!” “Most men become much more jealous about sexual infidelity than they do about emotional infidelity – they are more threatened by a woman cheating physically than they are by her cheating emotionally.”
“Any act that takes away energy from your relationship & partner and places it and attention on someone else can be deemed as cheating and betrayal” says Wanis. “Weiner’s worst act, though, was lying and engaging in behavior that could ultimately humiliate his wife and demonstrate a deep lack of respect for her – regardless of his personal definitions of cheating or betrayal” concludes Wanis.
