Are you addicted to cybersex or are participating in an online affair? What if you’re not sure – or may be but aren’t aware of it?
Cybersex Addiction symptoms and symptoms of online affairs can be hard to spot without the right education. Learning to identify them and recognize the fact that a problem exists is the first step toward finding a positive, transformational solution to conditions that damage and destroy people and relationships.
Warning Signs & Symptoms
Since both conditions essentially involve a lot of the same underlying problems and characteristics, Cybersex Addiction symptoms and symptoms of online affairs share many of the same traits. These warning signs and symptoms include:
- Secrecy; hiding or covering up online behavior
- Lack of interest in intimacy or physical/emotional connections
- Excessive amount of time spent online
- Emotional/physical distance
- Less time spent at home (the sufferer may be going online elsewhere for more privacy)
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Abrupt changes in expectations of privacy/demands for more privacy
- Significant personality changes
- Neglecting chores or other responsibilities
It can be hard to tell if something is wrong in a relationship that involves infidelity. This is especially true for online affairs, which do not typically involve hiding hotel receipts, dinner bills, and traces of perfume or cologne. As a result, one of the biggest indicators of either condition is a significant and noticeable change in a relationship without any clear, rational explanation or purpose.
There may also be other Cybersex Addiction symptoms and symptoms of online affairs that point to a deeper problem or condition that helps to explain the behaviours. A change in personality, difficulty with maintaining healthy emotional relationships, and increased negative thinking or poor self-esteem could be clues.
