What Is an Online Affair?

Learn about online affairs from couples counselor Victoria Wilson, Ph.D. in this Howcast video.


An online affair is sharing intimate information with someone you met online, and usually someone you have not met in person yet. This may involve intimate information about your sex life, about your partner, or may involve sexual or sexually graphic information or emotional connection. In anyway, usually online affairs lead to other affairs. Usually people, after meeting online, eventually, want to meet in person, and that's why online affairs are very dangerous to the primary relationship.
