5 Different Types Of Cheating

Signs that they are full-on cheating

There are many different types of cheating that can occur, all of which will hurt the person you're dating if they found out about it. With so many different types of cheating, it can become quite complicated to know what your partner is really up to. Luckily, you can learn all about the different signs of cheating that will lead you to believe that your partner is full-on cheating on you. I started my doubting my husband's fidelity when his routine changed completely. He started working longer hours, not making a lunch for work, and suddenly going golfing almost every weekend in Nowra-Bomaderry. All these clues led me to believe that he was dating someone from his office and using ‘working late' as an excuse to go to her house after work to be with her. Also, his golf clubs looked untouched and were collecting dust in the backseat of his car.

What defines a cheater?

What defines a cheater? Well, for starters sleeping with other people behind your lover's back is probably the most common way of describing a cheater. But there are so many different ways that a person can be unfaithful towards their lover. For example, if someone is constantly checking people out, hitting on them, and wishing they could sleep with them, they are not really considered as cheaters. But if their lovers knew about this, it would still hurt their feelings. To learn more about emotional cheating, read our guide on the subject.

Is cheating black and white?

A lot of people think that cheating is black in white. So basically: did you have intercourse or not? But defining cheating by this simple action leaves a lot of room for other infidelities. Cheating is not black and white because cheating is a spectrum of actions. If you make out with someone who isn't your lover — this is cheating. If you cuddle with someone in a sexual manner — this is cheating. If you need some help determining what counts as cheating, read our guide on the subject.

Is sexting cheating?

Sexting and watching porn have become somewhat of a norm in today's society. But what would you do if you caught your husband or wife sending sexy emails and pictures to a stranger on the internet? You would probably consider it as cheating and look at them in a completely different light, right? Sexting should be considered as cheating because the person is getting off at the thought of it and being intimate with someone they aren't involved with. Also, sexting someone or chatting with people online can usually lead to an invitation to meet in person, which would end up giving this person the opportunity to cheat skin-to-skin.

Flirting with other people

A lot of people say that flirting is a healthy thing to do, and although this might be true for a single person, I'm not so convinced that it is true for someone who is taken. If your partner is constantly flirting with people wherever they go, it is going to make their lover feel insecure and doubtful over their fidelity. Also, when you flirt with people, it makes others think that you are single, making you look available, which can give people the wrong idea.
