Internet microcheating is becoming more common

With the rise of social media sites, micro-cheating, which is the term used to describe the online exchange of compliments, comments, likes and initiatives, has become an increasingly common problem.

The case is so serious that it is being used by an increasing number of men, but also women, who are suffering from some form of lack within their relationship and are looking for quick feedback and affirmations instead of communication.

Micro infidelity, although rarely reaching physical contact, is experienced by the other party in the relationship as the same deep emotional roller coaster of messages and signals as one would feel after a physical betrayal. The best way to deal with this would be to have open conversations and to draw boundaries, especially in terms of prevention.
