Is it teething time for your little one?


It looks like the definition of cheating is no longer your significant other either kissing or sleeping with someone else... apparently, we should be worried if they wish another female a good morning...


Well, that's according to writer Melanie Berliet, who wrote not one but TWO articles on the subject: 33 Ways Your Boyfriend Is Micro-Cheating (And Totally Getting Away With It) and 34 Ways Your Girlfriend Is Micro-Cheating (And Totally Getting Away With It).



Things like 'giving a waitress or a bartender an obscenely large tip just because she’s hot AF' and 'going out of his way to do something nice for someone who’s not his girlfriend, like hook her up with tickets to a concert or a reservation just because' are things that Melanie classifies as micro-cheating.


In fact, while some of the things on her list will probably make you smirk, there are a couple like 'reaching out to a girl who’s “just a friend” for a recommendation or advice on an issue he could easily Google the answer to because he feels like bantering' that will really make some women doubt their relationship. 



But could YOU be the one who is micro-cheating in the relationship? 


According to the writer, if you 'dress super sexy on a totally random morning specifically because you feel like being elevator-eyed and/or catcalled or tend to bend over at just the right moment, fully aware that some dude’s hoping to get a glimpse of your ass', then you, my dear, are a culprit. 


So, what do you think? Is it something we should be wary of?
