I think its irrelevant if its technically 'cheating' or not. Its a betrayal. He was having a secret sexual relationship with a mystery woman via text. That would hurt. And I'd have to wonder how long until they decided they wanted to meet the person they'd been sexting for 5 months...
To me yes it's cheating. If its not OK to be done in front of me or for me to see then it is NOT OK for it to be happening. Deal breaker for me
I haven't read the other replies so sorry if the convo has moved on.
If he hides the texts from his partner, or doesn't let his partner know about this behaviour it is cheating. If he would do it in front of his partner, or they know all about it and are fine with it, it's not.
He's obviously getting off on it, so now what is he thinking about when he's sleeeping with his wife? This woman on the phone and what szhe says she wants to do to him?
How do you think he would feel if she was feeling sexy and fantasizing about another man? Not a picture in a magazine either a real live person with her phone number and thus potential real life acess to her?
I don't think it would fly somehow.
Absolutely cheating imo.
It may not have been physical cheating but he went behind his dw's back and engaged in sexual conversations with another woman - there is just no justifying that kind of betrayal and if he is happy to 'sext' someone else i wonder if he would eventually take it to the next level and physically cheat.
He has a partner for sexting, dirty talk, sex ect so WHY is he seeking sexual stimulation through texts with someone else?? And for it to have gone on for months as well?? NO WAY is that not cheating.
His poor wife must feel like a fool
All this time she's probably been going about as normal oblivious to his dirty ittle secret
Great term sexting cheating and I think yes it is unfair specially when the man is married and didn't met or saw that women.
