Flirtatious texting ( sexting ) is once again a hot topic in my office with the recent news of Tony Parker and Eva Longaria’s divorce filing said to be in part due to Tony’s one year texting flirtation with a woman. Often gossip and popular news on celebrity relationship problems causes anxiety in couples who are working to solve their own challenges with betrayal. Usually the news makes the hurt partner feel even more insecure and unsafe – a PTSD like trigger that can mean a few steps back in the healing process. As for me it reinforces the fact that the intimacy and emotional connection facilitated by secret flirtatious texting causes as much hurt and injury as a one night stand.
