Secret friendships: Are they the "gateway" towards cheating?


Oftentimes before someone cheats they justify their initial steps of having a "secret friend" by telling themselves: "Just because I'm married or in a relationship does not mean I can't have friends!" Soon afterwards they either indulge in what they label a platonic "secret friendship" or they hide the frequency of times they are in contact with this person from their mate. As time goes on they share their deepest thoughts, desires, and fears with this person eventually building an emotional connection. Is having a "secret friend" a "red flag" for yourself? The gateway towards cheating?
