More and more couples are rocked by one partner having an emotional affair. When one person in the relationship has an friendship that seems to cross the line, it can be even more devastating to the other partner because the inappropriate relationship was based on emotional closeness rather than sex.
Think you’re immune to emotional infidelity? Even the strongest of relationships have ups and downs. Friends are invaluable during these times and can help get your ideas and attitude back where they need to be.
Emotional infidelity usually starts out slyly, with an exchange of emails or a phone call. Perhaps there is a flirtation with someone in the office or attraction to an old friend. Soon what started as a simple friendship develops into something more: an emotional affair that can devastate a relationship.
Can men and women really ever be friends? Or will a close relationship with the opposite sex be the downfall of your relationship?
Can men and women be just friends? Of course! But not all friendships are created equal.
