My ex cheated on me. He says there was nothing sexual (which there probably wasn't because she was hundred of miles away), but to me it didn't matter.
The time he was giving to "her", was taking away the time he should have been giving to ME.
One is as bad as the other.
And they usually go together anyway.
One usually leads to the other, eventually.
Cheating is cheating and there's nothing that can make it o.k.
If you're cheating then you are also lying.
And when you're lying then you're also sneaking around trying to find time to give to someone else the time you should be giving to your significant other.
So now not only are you a cheater, but you're also a liar and a sneak.
So now you can't be trusted at all.
If you have nothing to hide, hide nothing.
And if you have something to hide, then you're cheating.
