We all obviously know that people cheat on their boyfriends, girlfriends, and spouses. Way too many of them, in fact. And a lot of us have heard of the stupid games that people play in relationships, such as ghosting and others. Now it’s time to add a new phrase into the complex relationship lexicon: micro-cheating.

Dating expert Melanie Schilling describes micro-cheating as “a series of seemingly small actions that indicate a person is emotionally or physically focused on someone outside their relationship.” People addressed the issue on Twitter.
