  • Either way the trust is gone....With an emotional one then they would have fell in love with them....and that means they are no longer in love with you....With a sexual one it could have just been a dumb drunk night....either way its messed up....

  • For some people. They are far more devastating than a strictly physical/sex only affair is.

    Emotional affair indicates that someone has fallen in love/developed deep feelings for another person. Yeah we share our all with best friends/close friends. However, when that sharing crosses the line emotionally to the point that friendship is not longer their but feelings of: love, longing, wanting to be with that person and not your spouse any longer, when you are closer to this person than your spouse, you feel that this person understands you more than your spouse, and you see this person as your end all be all and not your spouse.. That person has crossed the line from friendship to "emotional affair".

    When some people just have sex, that's all it is. Physical pleasure and release. Nothing more nothing less. No emotions shared. That's easier for many to reconcile in their minds, than someone falling in love with someone else.

  • Any affair, physical or emotional, is an affair where nothing good can become of it. It may also be a cry for attention, affection or love.
