There's probably been a thread about this and Im just too lazy to look it up.
Anyhoo, what would your S/O have to do for you to consider them to be cheating on you?

For us it would be any physical sort of affection including kissing, touching (you know what I mean) and up to sex.

But, really, even communicating with another, i.e. email, texting, calling in secret, etc......we consider to be a form of cheating.

"Just say no"

I agree with heatwave. Doesn't have to be "all the way" - emotional involvement or time spent with another that should be my time and my conversation - to me would be as good as cheating. It's disloyal.

It would depend on how much money she offers me.

I think lying and cheating go hand in hand... If my boyfriend was communicating with another woman and not telling me about it I would consider that a real problem and probably a relationship ender. I am not a jealous person but I believe openness and honesty are the base of any relationship and if there is a reason he feels like he can't tell me about someone then there must something shady going on.

thats what i was just wondering from the above post. in some cases if you learn from it and never do it again it's not better to tell. as long as it wasnt anything physcial, and didnt mean anything to you. and if a person just kissed you (as in a peck) and it was out of your control and you turned your face right after it happened, in that type of a situation it's not always best to spill the beans...who knows what your SO would believe and what type of insecurities and meaningless fights would come from that.

I consider cheating anyone that without telling their partner go behind their back and have sex with another person, or meets in hiding.

Cheating on your partner happens when there is something you would do with, or say to, another that you would not do or say if your partner were there with you.

Shoot..its not me! lol
Not stupid enough to do that...I know what side of the bread my toast is buttered on.
I was inspired by a bit of drama going on with a couple of friends of mine.
