Forming a deep emotional bond with someone else — 55%
When was the last time you texted your ex? Maybe you're on good terms and remained friends after the relationship. Or, you were looking for a little ego boost from someone you know is still hung up on you.

Social media, Whatsapp, and dating apps have muddied the waters of modern dating, and the line of what constitutes as cheating is blurred.
Ashley Madison, the dating site where people go to cheat on their partners, has gathered some data from over 3,000 users on what they believe to be unfaithful behaviour, except for actually having sex with someone else.
Among them are spending time with an ex, and sending explicit messages to someone else. But it's the emotional affair behaviour that came out on top.

"Despite defining what infidelity means to one another, one or both people in a relationship could still make the choice to seek an extra-marital affair when their needs aren't being met.
