A married woman has been accused of being in "denial" after insisting that her sexy online chats with a stranger do not amount to an affair.
Speaking under the handle "Virtuallyconfused," the British user of Mumsnet explained that she and her online "friend" had been talking online for a while, with platonic conversations that soon became "sexual" chats.
She argued that talking online with a stranger in another continent would never affect her real life, adding that both had agreed not to leave their partners when they began their correspondence.
The woman wrote: "I joined an online forum for an interest I have and started chatting with someone.
"We ended up chatting privately from the main forum, and talking about our private lives after a while.

The woman outlined in her post that she and her online friend have partners and do not intend to meet in real life during a frank discussion about Mumsnet.
"We are both married, not with children, and we live on different continents." From the beginning we both knew that we would never meet in real life, or that we would leave our relationships.
"But our conversations have gone from chatting to frank conversations about our lives and relationships, and now to talking in a sexual way.
"We're not in love, we're just friends, and we'll never make it come true." It developed so easily, and it feels so good to have someone with whom I can be honest and open.
"It does not feel bad, because it seems it will never have an impact on my real life, but is it a friendship or an adventure anyway?
Mumsnet users stated that the woman's behavior could be considered an emotional adventure and accused of being in denial during a frank discussion
An avalanche of answers accused the woman of carrying out an "emotional adventure" and warned that her husband would be devastated if he found it.
One person said: & # 39; Emotional adventure. You are investing in another relationship that is not your marriage. It's time to finish it.
Another wrote: "from the beginning … have you been clear that you would never abandon your relationships?" So, was the idea of some kind of adventure at stake from the beginning?
& # 39; You know the answer, I'm sorry. Your DH would be devastated when reading your emails and would have a lot of explanations to do. You have to leave that website soon. "
Some users defended the woman and said that she should continue talking to the stranger if he enjoys her during a heated debate about Mumsnet.

Others supported the woman's decision to talk to her friend online, but urged her to be careful.
A user recommended the woman not to be damaged by friendship and continue if she enjoys it.
They said: I think you're fed up and lonely. Do not give up or allow any of the others to be here either. If you enjoy the emotion, go for it.
You can even think about having fun with the NSA just be careful and discreet. Life is too short to repent.
