Micro-cheating and the Signs to Watch Out for
The modern population is now obsessing over the term “micro-cheating” and are actually freaking out about it, those who are in relationships, specifically. Are their partners guilty of such an act? But what is it really? And how can you tell that your partner is guilty of it?
Micro-cheating, as defined by data expert Melanie Schilling, is “a series of seemingly small actions that indicate a person is emotionally or physically focused on someone outside their relationship.” This would include acts like lying about your relationship status, especially on social media, and consistent contacts with past lovers or another person without the knowledge of your significant other.
While people who engage in this activity may argue that they are not in any way romantically involved with the other person, it can snowball into such a situation. And a strain on the relationship and the partner will be felt significantly. If not prevented, it can cause the destruction of the couple and their relationship.
This is why you should be aware of this and keep it from breaking you and your partner apart. Once you see the signs below, start investigating and try to confirm whether or not they’re micro-cheating on you.
