I never knew this was a thing but apparently you can cheat on your significant other virtually. I don’t know how valid a virtual affair is but I know it can lead to a real one.

How long did it take you to have an affair after considering it?

A post shared by Ashley Madison (@ashleymadison) on

COVID-19 has virtual cheating at an all time high. The cheating site AshleyMadison.com claims 30% of women who use the site are having virtual encounters. I believe that the numbers are probably more because most people don’t believe the affair you have online is real.

Ashley Madison also says they have been getting 17,000 new log ins everyday. This is only one site so is flirting sexting someone online considered a virtual affair? The website Ashley Madison also gives tips on how to no get caught. I don’t consider virtual cheating any different than real life cheating the dishonest intentions are still there.

Couples should use this time to get to know each other a little bit better, if you feel the need to cheat online you should probably just let your partner know how you feel and you can go both decide to go your separate ways or work things out. This doesn't even seem like real cheating because you don't even get to hang out with the person in real life. What is the point? Cheating makes things way to complicated, and dishonesty is never the way to go.
