Cheating – But Not Really? 5 ‘Different’ Types Of Affair

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post. Our most commonly sought service is our cheating partner investigation service.

One of the most frequently asked questions that people ask on the initial call, is “What is the likelihood my partner is cheating?”

As you can imagine, it’s not a question I want to answer without further investigation. But not necessarily for the first reason are probably thinking. You may think it’s because I don’t want to make a mistake?

Well, although no-one likes to make mistakes, I can say with almost 99% certainty that there’s likely ‘something’ going on. After all, if someone suspects their partner is cheating on them, they must have their reasons.

But sometimes the signs which arouse suspicion can be because of some entirely different reason. And it can also depend on someone’s definition of cheating. (Is a guy cheating if he spends a lot of time with a female friend but there’s nothing physically happening?)

So, today we’ll look at some different types of ‘affair’ that people experience with their partner.

Emotional Cheating
If a person spends a lot of time with someone who ‘really gets them’ rather than their partner, it’s a sign of the Emotional Cheating affair. It can often start quite innocently, especially in the workplace. Two people will start sharing more intimate and confidential information with each other. Perhaps ask for relationship advice. This type of emotional cheating often leads to physical involvement.

Family Guy or Girl
Some people never leave the circle of the family they grew up in. Instead of reaching a state of pure love and attachment to their partner, they keep their original family members as the most important people in their lives. This type of affair can be difficult to recognise as it involves family.

Just-In-The-Head Affair
This is a mental affair where a person looks elsewhere with both intent and the desire to seek gratification. Both parties keep it platonic, but one or both think they would satisfy their urge should the opportunity arise.

Friendship Affair
This is when your partner is completely involved with a friend of either sex, in a non-sexual way. Essentially, your partner is saying that their friendship is more valuable to them than your relationship. And it can often be started by the friend who doesn’t want you involved in your partner’s life.

Visual Imagination Affair
This is the act of committing an affair in your own eyes. It can be with someone you know or someone you’re fantasising about. Porn is a highly typical example. If it’s detrimental to the relationship, it’s still an affair, and it has the same effects as a physical affair.

All of these types of ‘not really cheating’ affair present significant problems to a relationship, and can be just as devastating.
