People's opinion about cheating depends on their gender, as most men find sexual affairs to be worse than an emotional one, says a new survey.
The survey, conducted by dating site Victoria Milan on 5,000 of their members, has found that men and women have very different ideas about what's forgivable and what's not in a relationship, Huffington Post reported.
The poll, which aimed to find how people felt about cheating, revealed that 72 percent of the men considered sexual affairs as worse, while 69 percent of women said emotional affairs were worse.
The study has revealed that 76 percent of women said they would forgive their partner for a strictly sexual affair and only 35 percent of men agreed to do the same, while 80 percent of men said they would forgive an emotional affair and only 30 percent of women claimed to do the same.
Sigurd Vedal, CEO of Victoria Milan, said that many people are searching for affection, a deeper connection that can lead to real, feelings, not just sex and it depends on the individual and the gender regarding what kind of cheating is more painful.
