Everyone knows what it is to have an affair, but what about when things don’t quite get physical?

Can there still be a commitment betrayal even if there’s little or no actual personal contact involved? Many people would say yes. It’s called an emotional affair, and it takes place when you grow distant from your partner and come to rely emotionally on someone outside the relationship.

And how exactly does that go down? These anonymous confessions tell all.
