Signs of Online Affairs With the development of the Internet, the definition of infidelity now includes a romantic and/or sexual relationship with someone other than the spouse, which begins with an online contact and is maintained mainly through electronic conversations that occur through e-mail, chat rooms, social media, and texting.
Anthony Weiner Anthony Weiner, 48, resigned in disgrace from Congress in 2011 for exposing himself to women on Twitter. In a digital era that makes explicit flirting easy, the nature of cheating might need to be redefined.
For this reason, it is imperative that parents talk with their children of all ages about social media and monitor their online social media use to help them navigate this new online social world.
This week, two years later, a gossip website revealed texts he allegedly shared with a 22-year-old woman after he had left Congress. Weiner’s behavior has made him this issue’s unwitting poster boy.
Weiner’s repeated behaviors might be a sign of a sexual addiction, which might be why his wife is staying by his side. He left Congress in disgrace after being pressured to step down due to a sexting scandal in 2011.
He told investigators that he got to know her after the school guidance counselor asked him to speak with the girl, who was depressed and not talking to anyone.
He said the girl was a sophomore, but documents do not reveal her age.
