Is emotional cheating worse than physical cheating?

UNDATED (KTRE) – New technology and social media like Facebook is said to be the driving forces behind the increasing number of people who say they are having affairs of the heart.

There was a time when cheating meant a physical affair, where a spouse or significant other is having physical intimacy with someone other than his or her partner. 

Nowadays cheating has grown to include one's emotions towards someone other than his or her partner, or cheating through thought or feeling.  Emotional cheating can include intimate conversations on the phone, emails, texting, Internet chat rooms with someone other than your spouse or partner.

Some say emotional cheating is the more dangerous type of cheating because it can lead to a stronger intimate bond and many times to physical cheating, whereas physical cheating many times is not about intimacy.
