To me emotional cheating is confiding in someone other than your spouse about everything that is actually going on in your life. You become more distant with your spouse. It's different because usually nothing physical happens

Because the person actually falls in love with another. The feelings are controlled by the brain,not the penis. With emotional cheating the cheater becomes all wrapped up in the other person. With physical cheating it's more about a hole & a heartbeat.

This may sound stupid , but that sounds no different than a good friend. The distant part is slightly alarming. I just think that there is always more ton the story than emotional cheating .

To me, emotional cheating would be feeling romantic love/attachment to another person, but without the relationship ever becoming physical.  There's a difference between romantic love/attraction and friendship.

Things done or said with emotion are far more intimate than something being just physical.

Emotional cheating is a physical affair that hasn't happened yet but will happen given the opportunity.

*discussing personal issues with the person

*flirting/sexual discussion with the person

*confiding in the person

*seeking emotional comfort from the person

*sneaking around to speak to the person and hiding it from your spouse

*Feeling a romantic attachment to the person
