Cheating is fairly common. But is micro-cheating, cheating? Tashiro believes so. Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT and CEO of Seeking Integrityan online community that addresses behavioral health challenges, says the difference between micro-cheating and full-on infidelity is better defined by how much your secret interactions might affect your partner when he or she finds out. Why do people feel compelled to micro-cheat? A variety of reasons, says Weiss.
It depends on how often the eye wanders, and when it does, if it lingers. Recent research from Florida State University examined how couples married for just over three years reacted to photos of potential partners.
They also discovered a tendency to put your partner above all others by devaluing or downgrading the attractiveness of potential romantic partners lowered the risk of infidelity. A study published in Archives of Sexual Behavior found those who strayed in their first relationship were three times more likely to stray in their next relationship.
And those who suspected their partners were stepping out on them were four times more likely to think their next partner was as well. So how should a couple best deal with micro-cheating?
And better communication can occur with or without therapeutic assistance. Open, honest, non-reactive communication is the key to healthy intimacy.
The more open and honest a couple is, the more intimacy they have. If you can eliminate the lies and secrets, the relationship gets much stronger.
If the partner continues to micro-cheat or refuses to discuss the topic with you, then it might be worthwhile to seek professional counseling. Want more tips like these?
