“It’s all relative these days.” Really?

21 Jun

During a recent conversation I was told that, as long as a relationship is ‘virtual’ then it’s not ‘real’ and therefore it cannot be cheating on a “real world” relationship; that the “standards” of what is cheating and what isn’t have changed now.


Considering that I fell in love with my beloved online, I find the argument quite faulty myself, but let’s try to be open minded *cough* and say that the two people involved never meet face to face. Are their feelings for each other less real?

And if those feelings are real, is it not emotional cheating?

Because I wasn’t aware that anywhere in the promises couples make to each other is there a caveat in small print, i.e. “as long as there’s no physical contact, harboring intense emotional feelings for someone else behind your back is fine” or some such.

What do you think?
