Would she keep pretending to be single, text that person and stuff? What do you think constitutes emotional cheating?

If she told him she loved him, if she felt the need to hide their relationship from their S. O, if she told him that he's the only person who can understand her etc...0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Pretending to be single is a really shady thing to do. Nothing good can come of it in my opinion. Not only are they deceiving whoever they are texting, but they are also being dishonest towards their partner.
It becomes emotional cheating when you start to pretend you are single and are actively talking with people who you are interested in. There is no clear-cut definition of emotional cheating, it depends on the relationship. I would personally be quite hurt if my girlfriend (if I had one that is) would pretend to be single towards other guys.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
