7.6 Billion people in the world and you have to be loyal to one person, that’s what being in a REALationship is about. But in this busy digital world, we’re bound to meet people everywhere. You start exchanging a couple of messages and next thing you know you’re flirting! It’s fun, it’s harmless... But is there such a thing as harmless flirting? There’s a term for this and it’s called micro-cheating we’re here to tell you all about it.
You might think it’s harmless to ask a “friend” to go for a run in the park with you or tag each other on memes you see on social media but those “micro” actions can be considered cheating by your partner, especially if you have to lie to them about it.
Some say that micro-cheating can help a relationship because interactions with others help the people involved in a relationship to grow. But can hiding things from your partner really help you grow as a couple? You be the judge.
The thing is, when you’re in a relationship, you will always be tempted by others and that’s where you put in the work. You work for your relationship despite the many “betters” you meet. You work for your relationship despite the temptations. Don’t jeopardize what you have for a fling that don’t mean a thing.
