The joy of texts and social networking sites have given rise to a new definition of infidelity -- the virtual affair -- and relationships counsellor Julia Cole has felt it necessary to update her self-help book, After the Affair, to reflect this growing trend. Their trust is betrayed and they experience the same feelings of loss, anger, sadness and rejection that come when a physical affair is exposed. It is also increasingly common, as Mia all names have been changed to protect privacy discovered when she found a series of no-holds-barred sexual emails her partner Alex had sent to another woman. While Mia had been studying for an Open University degree, Alex had struck up an online friendship with a woman called Lucy. Before long they were having cyber-sex, describing in graphic detail what they would like to do to each other if they were face to face. Devastated by the discovery, Mia was even more astounded when Alex argued there was no harm done, as he hadn't had any physical contact with the other woman.
