Non-Physical behaviors that count as cheating 0 665

By: Chantal D.

What counts as cheating? It’s a question that we may never have a straight answer to. With more and more ways to keep in touch through technology and social media, there are a lot of blurred lines when it comes to what is and isn’t appropriate. 

Texting a friend is fine, but texting a friend before bed every night might be considered less fine. But where are the boundaries?

Besides the obvious sexual acts what is really fascinating about these results is that an emotional connection is actually far more likely to be considered cheating than other explicitly sexual things — like sending naked photos to someone else. That may be for a very good reason — emotional infidelity can be extremely painful.

“Emotional cheating is very hurtful, to know that someone is cheating on us emotionally is heart breaking.”

Why does emotional cheating hurt so much? Well, it’s impossible to write it off as just a little “blip”. If your partner has sex with someone else you can rationalize that ‘it didn’t mean anything’ or ‘it was just sex’. But with emotional cheating, the person obviously does mean something to your partner. It feels like more of a threat to the stability and longevity of your relationship.NFB-01

It’s very serious stuff. Although one heartening part of this is, considering how many different things might be considered cheating and how varied people’s opinions are.

But if you’re not sure about where some of the boundaries fall, here’s what some had to say about the non-physical behaviors that count as cheating, because they’re way more lax than you might have thought. 

Forming A Deep Emotional Bond With Someone Else:

The number one action that people considered cheating was forming an emotional connection with someone else; this can cross the line into infidelity. Some emotional connection like friendships, can be totally innocent, but in other cases they’re definitely inappropriate.

Sending Naked Pictures To Someone Else: 

People sending naked pictures to someone other than your partner would 100 percent be cheating, and yet, sending nudes is OK to many people.

Texting Erotic Messages to Someone Else: 

Sexting someone else may seem pretty inappropriate, but only few thinks that they should be considered cheating. I guess there’s a lot of sliding into the DMs happening.

Glistering Portraits 0 567

One reason Sri Lanka is referred to as a resplendent island attributes to its colourful gems in Ratnapura, Elahera, Embilipitiya, Okkampitiya in Buttala and several other places. Among the precious stones un-earthed from gem pits in Buttala are rubies, sapphires, cat’s eyes, moon-stones and garnets. Stones found in rough from are cut and polished by gem-cutters following which their values are assessed based on purity (free of blemish) and weight measured in terms of caratage – a carat being equal to 200 milligrams. Polished gems adorn jewellery, the crown of royalty, and in the past handles of swords of kings.

A third grade of although colourful stones were thrown back into the pits in similar manner as stone shavings and filings were discarded as obsolete and of no utility value until things took a turn when gem cutter Saman Ajith Bandara embarked on an artistic handicraft project, producing brightly coloured portraits, wall hangings, photo frames, plaque designs and sceneries with gem shavings and found a ready market for his products.

In an interview with BiZnomics, Bandara who has his workshop in Buttala said, “I collected shavings of natural stones in their separate colours, which otherwise would have been discarded and began my industry on a small scale”. Explaining previously when shavings were used ha says, “The only instance gem shaving are made use of is when they are filled into small clay pots and hung from roof beams with pure astrological meaning to ward off evil. On a traced map of Sri Lanka, I pasted the shavings giving each topographical district a different colour. Finally I had a 25 coloured map of Sri Lanka”. Bandara’s effort proved to be an instant success as he described, “I took the map to Ratnapura where a gem merchant paid me Rs.6000 on the spot for my handcrafted frame which provided me the necessary encouragement to produce more pictures”.
