Definition: cyberaffair

An online relationship with another person via email, chat room or virtual reality community such as Second Life. Cyberaffairs run the gamut from casual conversations to divulging intimate emotions and desires. Because a cyberaffair is often clandestine, it can be very disruptive when a spouse or sweetheart finds out about it and judges the communication as if it were a physical affair. See Second Life.
