Amor, to me, none of what you did constitutes cheating. I honestly don't believe in emotional cheating in the sense that holding 2 people or more in your heart would be cheating. Emotional cheating to me is when you actively choose to love another when you know it will hurt your spouse, SO, etc. AND when you seek that love out from the other in return. You were upfront with the guy and your hubby. Maybe you got your order of operations wrong; you should have told the hubby first then the friend, IMO. But beating yourself up for caring deeply for a friend, even loving them, is so hurtful to yourself. Love itself isn't wrong, it is our actions that can be viewed as right or wrong.
