Yes, Online Infidelity is considered cheating. Because it is a type of emotional affair in which individuals engage in sexually intimate connection despite meeting each other in person. Sometimes this online infidelity is also viewed as cybersex.

In some cases, both parties are well aware that they will never be going to interact with each other face to face still they continue this kind of affair. The online affair usually has a similar type of negative impact as the physical affair.

Because the disloyal partner gets distracted by the online affair and disregards his/her real partner. In most cases, the spouse and kids are taken for granted and neglected due to the affair.

Just like traditional cheating, online cheating also involves secrets and deception that can easily damage the trust in the actual relationship. Because the disloyal partner is unfaithful behind his/her partner’s back even if it’s online.

In some cases, individuals who continuously have online affairs become irritable with their real partners and this can cause more harm in the long run.
