Exploring and discussing a variety of relationship topics and issues for people in all kinds of relationships; including partnerships, family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, roommates and more.

Being in a happy relationship doesn’t mean you stop getting attracted to other people. Attraction is a natural process of life. So, when does the attraction turn into an emotional affair? Is it considered cheating if you have emotional attachments with someone - even without being physically or sexually intimate?


Today, I explore what emotional infidelity is and how it is different from sexual infidelity. I share my personal and professional stories of emotional infidelity and how to use them to have a deeper and more authentic relationship. I also share the signs of an emotional affair, the slippery slopes to understand and watch for in your relationship as well as the different ways to safeguard your relationship from them.


“Just because you have an attraction towards somebody else is not a sign that you’re in a wrong relationship. It’s what you do with that attraction.” - Pripo Teplitsky
