Cheating in a Long-Distance Relationship

cheating in a long-distance relationship

Ever thought about how trust and distance combine to influence cheating in long-distance relationships?

When you’re far apart from your partner, it can be tough. The lack of physical closeness might lead to feelings of loneliness and unmet needs. This can sometimes make people think about seeking comfort or intimacy outside the relationship. Balancing the desire for closeness with the need to maintain trust can make cheating a real concern.

To understand this better, let’s explore the most common reasons for cheating in a long-distance relationship, how it affects long-distance couples, and what you can do to avoid cheating in your relationship.

What Is Cheating in a Long-Distance Relationship?

Cheating in a monogamous relationship is the decision to seek physical intimacy elsewhere, without notifying your partner. The nature of cheating isn’t solely the act itself; it’s about jeopardising the trust upon which the relationship is built. Even if you don’t disclose your actions to your partner, the truth tends to come out sooner or later.

That said, cheating’s interpretation can vary among individuals. Generally, it involves actions outside the framework of your relationship arrangement. At the start, promises are made, and boundaries are set.

Ultimately, the definition of cheating depends on the boundaries you’ve established.

Maintaining trust hinges on both partners sticking to these promises and respecting boundaries. The clearer your arrangement, the easier it becomes to maintain a healthy relationship that is based on trust and mutual understanding.

How Does Cheating Affect Long-Distance Relationships?

Cheating has a profound impact on long-distance relationships, causing a range of emotional and trust-related issues. The initial consequence is a loss of trust and emotional connection. Betrayal challenges the very core of the relationship, leaving partners hurt and insecure.

The effects on mental and emotional well-being are significant for both partners.

  • The partner who was cheated on may feel shock, anger, sadness, and confusion.
  • Their self-esteem may suffer, question their worth and the relationship’s future.
  • After the fact, a person will usually regret cheating.
  • Guilt and shame inside the cheating partner may lead to depression and anxiety.
  • By that time the trust is already broken and trust issues are almost inevitable.

In short, cheating in long-distance relationships creates emotional and psychological upheaval. Some relationships recover, while others don’t, emphasising the importance of trust in maintaining these relationships.

Why People Cheat in Long-Distance Relationships?

Cheating in long-distance relationships can occur for a variety of reasons, often linked to the unique challenges of being physically apart. The most common reasons why people cheat in long-distance relationships include:

  • Unmet needs
  • Lack of physical closeness
  • Communication issues
  • Emotional void
  • Uncertainty
  • Doubts
  • Insecurity
  • Loneliness
  • Feeling neglected or unimportant
  • Opportunities and temptations
  • Immediate gratification
  • Lack of immediate consequences

It’s important to note that while these reasons are common, every individual’s situation is unique.

When you are in a long-distance relationship, where you go for weeks without seeing your partner, you can’t help but have doubts about whether or not it’ll work out.

At some point, you may start thinking that your partner might be cheating on you. The more afraid you are of this idea, the more it’ll fester in your mind, and influence your behaviour. You can start distrusting your partner’s behaviour and become controlling.

Ironically, this alone can be enough to push a person toward cheating. So, it’s important to distinguish between reasonable concerns and irrational fears.

Types of Cheating in Long-Distance Relationships

Cheating in long-distance relationships can manifest in various forms. By understanding different types of cheating you can become aware of potential threats to your relationship.

Emotional cheating

Emotional cheating is a term used to describe emotional intimacy with someone outside of your monogamous relationship. This connection may provide emotional support, understanding, and a sense of companionship that is typically reserved for a romantic partner. As a result, this can breach emotional boundaries and lead to distrust.

Signs of emotional cheating include:

  • Developing a deep emotional connection that goes beyond a platonic friendship with someone else.
  • Sharing intimate thoughts, feelings and experiences with another person.
  • Frequent and intimate conversations with the other person.
  • Discussing relationship issues with the other person.
  • Developing feelings of attraction or infatuation for that person.
  • Engaging in flirtatious conversations, either in person or virtually, that go beyond harmless interaction and indicate romantic interest.
  • Engaging in playful or flirtatious behaviour with others, either in person or online, without serious intentions, can still breach the trust of the committed partner.

To avoid emotional cheating, consider the following:

  • Open and honest communication about your feelings and boundaries.
  • Setting clear boundaries
  • Maintaining a strong emotional connection
  • Becoming aware of any potential connections that might be becoming too intimate

Emotional cheating can be equally damaging as physical cheating, as it erodes trust and leads to many trust issues.

Physical cheating

  • Engaging in intimate or sexual activities with someone other than the partner.
  • Engaging in sexual or romantic encounters during the visits.

Cyber cheating

In the digital age, cheating can extend to online interactions.

  • Involvement in online relationships.
  • Sexting.
  • Engaging in flirtatious, intimate or explicit conversations online.
  • Exchanging explicit messages, and photos, or engaging in virtual affairs.
  • Engaging in romantic or sexual conversations.
  • Exchanging explicit messages.
  • Having virtual affairs through social media or dating platforms.
  • Engaging in small actions that may seem harmless individually but collectively breach trust, such as frequent liking or commenting on someone’s social media posts in a flirty manner.
  • Creating dating profiles or using dating apps to connect with potential romantic partners, without the partner’s knowledge.


  • Engaging in small, seemingly innocent actions that hint at a romantic or intimate interest in someone else.
  • Excessive liking or commenting on someone’s social media posts.
  • Maintaining secret online interactions.
  • Downplaying one’s relationship status.

Other behaviours that can be a form of cheating, include:

  • Neglecting the relationship
  • Excessive secrecy
  • Lack of transparency
  • Intimacy with friends
  • Long-term secrecy
  • Crossing agreed boundaries
  • Seeking emotional validation
  • Concealing relationships
  • Rekindling with Exes

Lying about interactions with others, the nature of relationships, or the extent of emotional connections can damage trust.

It’s essential to note that perceptions of cheating can vary among individuals and relationships. Establish mutual understanding and trust in what is considered acceptable behaviour in your long-distance relationship.

Signs of Long-Distance Relationship Cheating

In a long-distance relationship, it’s hard to tell when your partner is cheating. For example, just because they’re spending less time talking to you, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are cheating. Maybe your partner is just really busy with things in their life. At the same time, some things can tell you that your partner might be cheating.

One of these things is an apparent lack of interest in you or your relationship. If your partner tries to avoid meaningful conversations or share their feelings, that’s a sign that they are growing apart from you. If you feel that there is a distance building up between the two of you, you should talk about it with your partner. Even if you love them, you’d be better off knowing the hard truth rather than living a lie.

Common signs of cheating in long-distance relationships can include:

1. Decreased communication

A sudden decrease in communication frequency or responsiveness is one of the first signs that the other person is no longer interested. Keep in mind that they can stop talking as much because of their busy schedule. However, if a sudden change starts happening after a fight, it’s probably safe to assume that something’s wrong. In this case, try to find the real reason for your partner’s behaviour.

Consider each of the following as a red flag, but avoid making conclusions without checking in with your partner first.

  • Spending significantly less time talking to you.
  • Fewer calls.
  • Consistently avoiding phone calls or video chats.
  • Stop talking altogether.
  • Messages become brief.
  • They may not respond promptly.
  • Ignoring your messages for prolonged periods.
  • Delayed responses or unexplained absences.
  • Offering excuses to avoid video calls and insisting on phone calls only.
  • Getting defensive if you inquire about their camera avoidance.
  • Avoiding meaningful conversations.
  • Deflecting conversations away from the relationship.
  • No longer interested in discussing friends and family.
  • Make a big deal out of petty issues.
  • Providing vague explanations for the decreased communication.
  • Becoming evasive or avoiding certain topics.
  • Unwilling to make any effort to work out issues or arrange visits.
  • Reacting defensively when asked about their day.
  • Creating petty fights without good reason.
  • Avoiding discussing their feelings.

If your partner suddenly becomes guarded, avoids certain topics, or becomes defensive when questioned, it may be a red flag that indicates emotional distance. Notice inconsistencies and any abrupt changes in your partner’s behaviour, interests, or habits that seem out of character.

Be aware of white lies as they can erode trust and credibility over time, potentially damaging the foundation of your relationship.

A decrease in communication quality or frequency is one of the first signs that at least one partner has lost interest in this long-distance relationship. If a person is simply busy, they should have no problem explaining their reasons for having fewer calls and be willing to make some changes moving forward.

2. Emotional detachment and disinterest

If your partner becomes emotionally distant, unresponsive to your feelings, or seems disinterested in the relationship, it could be a red flag.

Notice inconsistencies that signal their loss of interest in your current relationship. Common signs include:

  • Becoming distant emotionally.
  • Showing less uninterest in your feelings, experiences and life in general.
  • Not engaging in deeper conversations.
  • Responding with indifference to your achievements or concerns.
  • Dismissing your emotions.
  • Showing a lack of empathy.
  • Avoiding discussions about feelings or future plans together.

3. Decreased intimacy

A sudden decline in intimacy, both emotional and physical, might indicate a shift in priorities. There’s a sudden decline in both emotional and physical intimacy. Affectionate gestures, endearing messages, and expressions of love become scarce. A clear red flag is when your long-distance partner suddenly expresses reluctance to engage in romantic conversations and consistently downplays intimacy.

4. Fluctuations in affection

A decrease in affectionate gestures, like endearing messages or compliments, could signify a disconnect. Your partner’s affectionate behaviours become inconsistent. They might offer warmth one day and distance the next. Going from being affectionate to suddenly being distant without a clear reason, avoiding compliments, and not reciprocating your expressions of affection is definitely a red flag.

5. Increased secrecy and hiding of online activities

If your partner becomes secretive about their online activities, passwords, or interactions, it could be a red flag indicating they’re hiding something. Discuss your concerns if the following starts happening:

  • Frequent excuses for being unavailable or vague explanations about their whereabouts.
  • Increasing privacy about online activities.
  • Avoiding sharing details of social interactions.
  • Password-protecting social media accounts.
  • Unexplained new friends or contacts may signal potential emotional involvement with others.
  • Becoming overly protective of their devices or online accounts.
  • Notice if they start clearing their browsing history or using private modes frequently.
  • Keeping certain online interactions hidden from you.
  • Changing passwords without explanation.
  • Hiding their screens when you’re around.
  • Being overly protective of their online privacy.
  • Unwilling to share details about their daily life, friends.
  • Not sharing details about their daily routine, their interactions with friends

Being evasive about what they did during the day, consistently changing the subject when asked about their plans, and not including you in their social interactions can all be red flags.

Checking your partner’s expenses can be a way to find out if they are doing something they aren’t telling you. If you share an account, it’s easy to do. If you don’t have a shared account, spying on theirs can in itself be a breach of trust. Instead, try to bring up your concerns and hopefully you can clear any doubts in a trusting way.

6. Defensive behaviour

Here are red flags that revolve around defensive behaviour:

  • Becoming defensive or evasive when questioned about their activities or interactions.
  • Reacting with hostility to your inquiries.
  • Refusing to provide straightforward answers.
  • Acting offended when asked about their behaviour.

7. Decreased commitment and investment in the relationship

Becoming defensive or avoiding discussions about concerns could indicate guilt.

  • Observe if your partner shows less interest in making future plans together.
  • Notice if they seem hesitant to discuss the future or avoid long-term commitments.
  • Be aware of reduced effort in maintaining the relationship and making it work.
  • Hanging out with new friends without including you in those interactions.
  • Having a new friend that takes priority in your long-distance partner’s already busy schedule.

In summary, cheating signs alone may not definitively indicate cheating, as there could be other reasons for changes in behaviour. There’s no single sign or red flag that can be a clear indication of cheating.

If something feels off or different, it’s essential to trust your gut feeling and talking it out is key to addressing any suspicions and concerns and clarifying the situation.

While cheating signs and red flags should alarm you that something might be off, avoid making premature conclusions that something is definitely wrong. You may discover that your partner is simply busy. And, if you act on a wrong judgement, these assumptions may create trust issues.

The best thing to do is to point out your partner’s behaviour and give them an opportunity to explain the motivation behind it.

How to Avoid Cheating in a Long-Distance Relationship

When you can’t be physically intimate with your romantic partner, you will naturally look for someone else to fulfil your needs. While the potential for cheating exists, these proactive steps can help you address these issues and navigate this uncertain territory.

Maintain open, clear and honest communication

  • Keep the lines of communication open and transparent.
  • Share your feelings, concerns, and needs with each other.
  • Be honest about any challenges or temptations you may be facing.
  • Develop mutual understanding.
  • Discuss sensitive topics freely, without reservations.
  • Talk about your feelings and needs with your partner.
  • Address the lack of physical contact due to the geographical gap.
  • Help your partner understand your perspective, so they can work with you toward satisfying your needs and desires. This eliminates the need for cheating.

Being honest about your emotions is key to maintaining a healthy relationship and avoiding cheating.

Open communication can help uncover the truth and alleviate unnecessary worries. If your partner isn’t forthcoming, consider getting extra help from a relationship coach who can provide insights and guidance to navigate the situation.

Developing effective communication isn’t an easy task. To help you get started we’ve put together a workbook on how to improve communication with your long-distance partner. Check it out, it might be just what you need as it can help you get comfortable talking about different topics.

Set clear boundaries

  • Establish healthy boundaries regarding what is acceptable behaviour within the relationship.
  • Discuss expectations regarding communication frequency, exclusivity, and what constitutes cheating.
  • Create an agreement of freedoms and boundaries that both of you are comfortable with.
  • Freedoms and boundaries can change with time, so find the best way to bring it up to your partner when this happens.

Prioritise quality time

  • Make time for each other despite the distance.
  • Schedule regular calls, virtual dates, and activities.

Be empathetic and understanding

  • Recognise the unique challenges of long-distance relationships and the emotions that come with it.
  • Be supportive and understanding of each other’s feelings and experiences.
  • Address each other’s emotional and physical needs.
  • Be mindful of each other’s feelings.

Avoid tempting situations

  • Be mindful of situations that may lead to temptation.
  • Stay committed to your partner and avoid engaging in behaviours that could jeopardise the trust in your relationship.

Reaffirm commitment

  • Regularly express your love and commitment to each other.
  • Remind your partner that they are valued and cherished, reinforcing the emotional bond.
  • Be proactive, understanding, and committed to each other to create a healthy and faithful long-distance relationship.

Establish mutual goals

Work together towards shared goals and future plans. Having a common vision for the future can strengthen the sense of partnership and commitment.

Address issues promptly

If any concerns or doubts arise, address them promptly through open communication.

  • Don’t ignore problems as it may lead to emotional disconnection.
  • Consider moving in together sooner, or having an open long-distance relationship.
  • Always aim to find a solution together.

When you desperately need sexual intimacy, it’s understandable that you might slip up and have a sexual encounter with someone else. However, if this happens, you should discuss it with your partner straight away. You can try to fix it by seeing each other more frequently or moving in together.

When you are in a long-distance relationship, it helps to be honest about your feelings and frustrations with your partner. If you don’t share what’s on your mind, your partner won’t be able to help you. While sleeping with someone else, is a problem, lying about it, is what breaks the trust and destroys the relationship.

Once you can express your feelings and needs clearly to your long-distance partner, they will be able to help you find a solution that works for both of you.

Face challenges together

A long-distance relationship is not without its hurdles, but facing them as a team can strengthen the bond.

  • Cultivate resilience by viewing challenges as opportunities for growth and learning.
  • Support each other through tough times and celebrate victories together.

Trust Each Other

Trust is the foundation of any successful relationship.

  • Believe in your partner’s loyalty and commitment, and be trustworthy yourself.
  • Address trust issues as they arise.
  • Consistently demonstrate commitment and loyalty.

Recognise if you have a strong need to be sexually intimate with someone. Talk about it with your partner before acting on your impulses.

Seek Support

Reach out to friends, family, or support groups who understand the challenges of being in a long-distance relationship. Talking to others can provide valuable insights and encouragement.

  • Avoid suppressing feelings, as it may exacerbate issues.
  • Honesty with your partner holds the potential for resolution.
  • Once trust is shattered, the relationship might endure but will never be the same again.

If your feelings towards your partner change, talking to a relationship coach before sharing them with your partner can provide valuable insights and guidance on how to navigate this emotional shift effectively.

How to Fix a Long-Distance Relationship After Cheating?

If your long-distance partner cheated on you, try to understand their reasons. Avoid creating an argument and judging them for it. All it will do is prompt your partner to avoid telling you things. 

If you approach the situation with understanding, your partner will feel more comfortable telling you what happened and why. In turn, it will give you a chance to understand the problem and stop it from happening moving forward.

If you cheated on your long-distance partner, try to understand why. If it was a spur of the moment, then perhaps there is still room in your life for this relationship. If you cheated because your long-distance partner cannot fulfil your needs, then it could be time to break up.

An open and honest conversation

  • Talk about your feelings and situation openly and freely.
  • Initiate a sincere and open dialogue with your partner.
  • Share your feelings, regrets, and reasons behind your actions.
  • Be prepared for their emotional response, and encourage them to express their thoughts as well.

Apologise and take responsibility

  • Offer a heartfelt apology for your actions.
  • Take responsibility to show your willingness to make amends and work towards a better future.

Understand the reason for cheating

  • Reflect on the reasons for seeking a connection outside of your relationship.
  • Take time to understand why your long-distance partner cheated.

Identifying the underlying cause is crucial for finding effective solutions. Was it due to unmet physical or emotional needs?

Address the underlying issues

  • Work together to discover and address the root causes of the cheating.
  • If physical intimacy was lacking, discuss ways to bridge the gap, like increasing visits or exploring ways to connect emotionally.

Once you understand the underlying issue, you can fix the problem, provided it was a one-off situation. For example, if cheating was due to a lack of physical intimacy, moving in together or visiting each other more often could be a solution. However, if you lost interest in your long-distance partner, then ending your relationship could be a better solution.

If you don’t address the unfulfilled needs, the chances are it will happen again. Repetitive cheating is unhealthy and is a sign that you are in a toxic long-distance relationship and might be better off breaking up to save yourself from more pain and focus on improving your life and well-being.

Address a lack of physical intimacy

One of the common problems in a long-distance relationship is the lack of physical intimacy. If you don’t manage this problem correctly, it will lead to sexual frustration.

An unfulfilled need for physical intimacy is a common reason why long-distance partners cheat. Without effective communication, trust and openness, you may lose an emotional connection and will be tempted to look for fulfilment elsewhere.

Rebuild Trust

Fixing a long-distance relationship after cheating comes down to trust. If your emotional bond with your long-distance partner is strong enough, you can talk about what happened, understand the reasons for it, and decide what you can do to prevent it from happening again.

Both partners need to:

  • Make a commitment to transparency and consistent communication.
  • Be patient as your partner may need time to trust you again.
  • Engage in an open dialogue.
  • Work towards forgiveness and healing.
  • Seek professional guidance that can also aid in navigating this sensitive journey.
  • Establish clear boundaries moving forward to prevent similar situations.
  • Discuss what is acceptable behaviour within the relationship and what is not.
  • Re-establish emotional connection.
  • Have regular check-ins.
  • Demonstrate change.
  • Plan for the future.
  • Monitor emotional well-being.

Fixing a long-distance relationship after cheating requires a combination of introspection, communication, and effort from both of you. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to fix trust issues in a long-distance relationship.

If your long-distance partner cheated on you, understanding is more important than forgiving. If all you do is forgive your partner, you will not know why they did it, so the chances are they will do it again.

So, instead of judging and forgiving, try listening and understanding. It will undoubtedly be a tough thing to do, considering all the emotions flowing through you at the time. However, this approach will give you more clarity about your situation, your partner’s point of view, and the state of your long-distance relationship.

Their understanding of your situation will give you the power to make a healthy decision and avoid future heartache and pain.

If your long-distance partner cheated on you, you might choose to talk about it, or you may decide to end your relationship. Either way, try to understand what happened and why, so you can do better next time.

If you and your partner are open and willing to draw a line on the past and do all you can to make your long-distance relationship work, our complete guide will take you step-by-step through every aspect of your relationship, so you can recognise and address any issues you may have.

If your long-distance partner is willing to be open and cooperative to talk about their behaviour and make changes, it’s a good sign that your long-distance relationship still has a chance. Just keep in mind that words and promises are not enough for you to move on. Specific actions are by far a more clear indication of the reality of your situation and your partner’s true intentions.


In a long-distance relationship, trust plays a pivotal role in creating a sense of security, significance, and emotional closeness. However, the absence of physical contact can sometimes open the door to doubts.

Personal insecurities can lead individuals to seek validation or affirmation from others, especially if they feel vulnerable due to physical separation. Feelings of insecurity and uncertainty might lead to emotional distance, reduced communication, or seeking validation beyond the relationship, all of which can pave the way for emotional or physical infidelity.

We’ve looked at some cheating signs to consider and red flags to be aware of. Keep in mind that they don’t indicate that your partner is doing something wrong, but at the same time, you shouldn’t ignore them either.

To avoid cheating, establish clear freedoms and boundaries with your partner. And if one of you cheats, understanding the underlying reasons rather than passing judgment is a more constructive approach.

Regular video calls, voice messages, and heartfelt conversations help long-distance couples maintain emotional intimacy.

Being away from your partner means that neither of your physical/sexual needs will be satisfied. If you notice yourself being concerned with your partner’s behaviour, talk to them to find out the real reason behind their actions. Get on the same page and together make decisions that work for both of you.

In a romantic relationship, you expect physical intimacy. In a long-distance relationship, physical distance can amplify doubts about the future, prompting one to explore alternatives. One way to manage your needs for physical intimacy is to regularly visit each other.

If you find yourself in a long-distance relationship, it’s quite likely that you’ve contemplated the possibility of your partner cheating or have even felt the temptation yourself.

Long-distance relationship cheating involves actions that go against the agreements you’ve established with your partner. When a relationship begins, promises are made and boundaries are set.

If one of you has cheated, the best thing you can do is to talk about it rationally to identify the reasons for it. If you can address the real reason, it won’t need to happen again. If you don’t resolve the issues that led to cheating in the first place, the chances are it will repeat.

So, make sure you have a set date for moving in together and a solid plan to maintain a healthy online relationship until then.

The signs of long-distance relationship cheating are speculative. In other words, you can assume that your partner might be cheating because they don’t spend much time with you. But you will not know whether or not they are cheating unless they tell you. The only way your partner will say to you if they’re cheating is if they know that you will not judge them. Instead of telling them how bad they are, try to understand why your partner did what they did.

How can I stop cheating in a long-distance relationship?

If you keep cheating in a long-distance relationship, it means you’re trying to fulfil some of your needs. Stop and ask yourself what needs are being unfulfilled in your current relationship. Then, you can try to find a way to talk to your partner about your unfulfilled needs to see if you can find a solution.

Can a long-distance relationship survive cheating?

A long-distance relationship can survive cheating provided you can rebuild the trust. However, once the trust has been compromised, it’s tough to trust your partner the same way or expect them to trust you. And without trust, the quality of your relationship won’t be the same.
