redsirenn and Mono, you are entitled to your opinions, of course. I personally blame the concept of emotional affairs and "cheating without physical contact" for the relative dearth of opposite-sex friendships among married people. I myself never had close platonic male friends for my entire adult married life, age 23 onward, until I was poly. There was no real forum for having them when I was monogamous.

FWIW, I did not conceal my emotional connection with my online buddy from my husband. He was well aware of our relationship and my feelings for the person. It was one of the things that convinced us both that yes, I COULD have feelings for more than one person and it would not impact our relationship adversely.
