  • Anything sexual or flirtacious that you wouldn't do in front of your spouse, I consider cheating.

  • anything sexual... and if your "sneaking" around to see the other person... then obviously that is called cheating! If your S/O doesn't know about you sneaking around and seeing other people... that is very decieving... I don't think that its right... Lies, lies, lies but what goes around comes around! Thats how I look at it!

  • I would think any emotional connection. From just talking to actually sleeping with another person. Thats ME. Others don't see a non-physical relationship cheating. But if I found out my DH was talking with with someone in an intimate way I would be pretty upset.

  • To me cheating is if he does something (kissing to sex) with a woman

    Thinking about it is NOT cheating in my book. A person can't really control their thoughts like that. Plus fantasies are healthy. It's what he does after he thinks about it that counts.

  • I don't think flirting is cheating unless you are doing it behind your SO's back and you have underlying intentions. I do feel that any kind of contact that is sexual, or thoughts of being with someone else is cheating.

  • Having sex is cheating, On line stays online and is not techinically cheating. But that is me and a lot of women have a problem with that. Honestly its just talk . Talk is cheap.

  • Cheating means sexual or flirtatiious behavior that the person hides from his or her spouse. Some say that thinking about sexual or flirtatious behavior with another person is cheating, too, but I'm not sure about that.

  • cheating is anything YOU CAN"T TELL your SO about, or anything YOU WOULDN"T DO IN FRONT of your SO.

  • cheating is any behavior you either can't do in front of or tell your SO about. Period. Emotional affairs can be just as devestating as physical ones.

  • Having an affair outside your relationship is cheating.
