    but I just learnt >  to try and quote 'like I have never ever felt before'. how would u respond?

    Trick question......
    Here's the thing for men it is easier to draw a line between the emotional and the physical, but women have a tendency to connect the physical with the emotional. Think about it a man can have a friend with benefits and be fine seeing her once or twice a week for sex and spend time with her as a friend with no emotional attachment outside of that. A woman is more likely to start to miscunstrue the light hearted conversation and mind blowing sex for love and become emotionally attached, My mother told me that in order to get someone outta ur head and ur heart u've gotta keep them out of your body. So I think the answer to the question is neither. Cheating is defined by ur relationship, I tell my guy whatever u cannot do in front of me comfortably with another woman is cheating,and whatever you would not feel comfortable with me doing with another man is cheating.

      interesting.
      well,my girlfriend of over two years told me that she met a guy on the train ( or once she reached a place) and though he is not attractive to her in any way.
      she has never felt so passionately for ANYONE. even me...

      I love that quote: "whatever you cannot do in front of me comfortably with another woman is cheating." Best way to define it.

    I think emotional is worse. If you have a "wham-bam-thank you m'ame/man" moment,  that's one mistake. But to be emotionally involved with someone is more than one encounter. That means you spent time together and invested in the relationship. That's not to say that too many wham's doesn't hurt.

    I think emotional. I'd rather a man just fulfill a temporary fantasy than actually fulfilling a whole other real life relationship!
