She helps answer these critically important questions:

  • When does a friendship become more than a simple friendship?

  • How do you know if there is someone else?
  • How do you know if your partner has crossed the line?
  • Emotional Sex is an affair of the heart that feels the same as romantic love and can manifest itself in numerous ways — physically, chemically, romantically, emotionally, lustfully, verbally, even in cyberspace through texts, emails, and video chats.
  • Emotional Sex happens when you feel that someone else gives you what you are missing in your primary relationship, and because of this, you channel the bulk of your emotions, hopes, and desires onto the other person.

Here are some of the behaviors described by Sheri Meyers that may indicate an emotional affair:

  • Flirts with others (i.e. sends signals that they are romantically available or interested).
  • Discusses confidential things about our relationship with a member of the opposite sex.
  • Shares their most private thoughts and feelings with someone else and not me.
  • Discusses sexual desires and fantasies with someone other than me.
  • Regularly exchanges personal emails or text messages with a friend or ex-partner.
  • Purchases intimate gifts for others whom I don’t know about.
  • Develops a crush or feelings for someone else, even if not acted upon.
