Ok I think cheating is basically any romantic act with someone other than your partner. But I have friends who have different views on that and they think it's fine for like other guys to smack their ass or be super flirty with other guys. And I know a guy that texts other girls sexually while he is in a relationship. I don't think you have to kiss or have sex to cheat. What do you think?
It's fine as long as u don't kiss or have sex

If my partner ever tried ANYTHING with someone other than me, that would be the last thing they ever tried.
Talking is fine, BUT too much talking is not, even if there is no flirting involved. Iam surprised 10% of you guys voted for "I'm cool with anything", if you or your partner can kiss/sex/flirt with other people, how is that a relationship? I find it retarded as fk, but you do what you want...
Cheating isn't all about kissing , sex , and sexual contact. I think flirting with others while in a relationship is disrespectful to your SO , so I'd never do that. Anything you hide from your SO shows you have ulterior motive
A relationship needs respect , so it's important to consider how your SO feels in certain circumstances. If my SO felt uncomfortable about me flirting etc with someone else then I'd stop doing it. His feelings would come first
I wouldn't want to flirt with any other guy , I'd only want to flirt with my SO
I'm a fan of open relationships. They test your emotional fortitude and tend to be stable as you eliminate one of the primary causes of breaking up. Ironically, the trust you have in one another brings you closer together and makes you not want to seek out other partners anyway.
I can't pick any of them. D sounds like a threat, almost like a death threat. A is closer to what i would vote, but it lacks the flirting part, no flirting. B is even closer to my vote, but it includes no talking to the opposite sex, or looking at them, I am ok with talking, and looking, because its in our nature to look, and talking is communication i cannot block that, just no flirting, no sexual stuff, no romantic stuff.
It's all fine as long as both people in the relationship ok it. I agree with you, I think the relationship is about trust. If your flirting around a lot then I think your testing that trust and because of the social status of sex your breaking the trust when it gets sexual.
If both parties are ok with it then all you have done is decided that one less thing is an attack on the trust of your relationship. Not everyone can do this and there is nothing wrong with that
I only classify physical unfaithfulness as technically being "cheating".
If my girl flirted with other guys, I wouldn't consider it "cheating". However, that doesn't make it ok. It's still extremely disrespectful. I'd still be hurt, and I still might even end the relationship over it.
Taking part in any sexual activities without me!.. Personally - taking part in sexual activities without me or without my consent!.. That even makes Jerking off without my permission cheating!.. And if you wants to have a really hot hook up!.. She needs to inform me before hand,.. A call will be enough,.. Then she can ride any and many cocks!.. If i am busy or I will join her party soon..
Cheating is essentially going behind your partner's back and having sexual or romantic relations with someone. If your partner knows you're going to have sex with some other chick, and is okay with it, then it's absolutely not cheating. Cheating almost explicitly betrays a partner's trust, so open relationships can't be described as cheating or anything.
I'm cool with anything. Open relationships are the best.
The definition I adhere to the most is the concept that if you’re doing something with another individual outside the knowledge of the one you’re with, whether you are romantically involved, or just friends w/ benefits, then you are cheating on them. Doesn’t matter if you are doing it physically, mentally, or emotionally; whatever the case may be. If you’re partner is not aware of what you’re doing then you are cheating. The very definition of cheating is doing something without others knowing what you’re doing. Like playing cards and having an “Ace” up your sleeve that nobody else knows about, but you; that’s cheating.
However, if your partner knows what you’re doing, whether they are participating with you with these others on any level, or they are just letting you do your thing while they are doing theirs, then I do not feel this is cheating, because you’re not doing it deceitfully. You’re doing what you’re doing with your partner having full knowledge of these events. Some call this being in an Open Relationship, but others may have other labels, but it amounts to the same thing. In the end, though, you’re not cheating if there’s no betrayal of trust or lack of communication is the relationship.
When you caught your girl having sex with another guy in your bed
If you're doing anything that you wouldn't bring up to your SO in casual conversation, it's cheating.
I didn't vote because I think cheating is subjective with every couple. I agree with @Dtegesd123 that if you do something and you deliberately keep it a secret, it's basically cheating. For some couples, it could be something small, that others won't think is a big deal, but we're talking about the act of deception here.
If you or your partner suddenly don't feel so proud that you got caught doing something, or if it makes you upset thinking of your partner doing something yet you have no problem with doing yourself, then it's deceitful. Deceit is a big shade of cheating.
There are things that might not be deal-breakers, but they could still lead to some upset in the relationship. For example, if one person dodges their partner to take time to have a private phone conversation or messaging session with someone of the opposite sex, but then gets found-out? Might have been best to say, "Hey I'm getting a message from that girl I know from work and I don't know why... hang on I'll find out and get right back to you." Then no one is in the dark because there isn't anything to hide. Being truthful and faithful shouldn't be a problem if you love and trust each other.
I always ask people, what would u do if she/he also did the same to you? Talking is fine, looking is fine but sexting or flirting then good bye and deleted from my life for sure. I wouldn't say it's flirting if ur complementing but if they think they could have someone better then go and get them.
I consider cheating anything romatic or sexual done with any other person you're not in a relationship with. There should be boundaries no flirting, ass smacking, sexting, none of that. I'd feel so disrespected as the girlfriend of a man who acts that way while with me.
Just by thinking about doing something with another person means you don't love the person you're with, or that there are unsolved problems in your relationship. If you feel the need to go out, dance and flirt with others, cheating is just a step away
Uhm... Well, I believe that if you kiss/sleep with someone else then it's called cheating. If you flirt, talk romantically to another guy/girl, or any of that kind of stuff, it doesn't exactly belong to the "cheating" category but Its just not okay and disrespectful towards your relationship..
I actually disagree with with your definition of cheating. I think the real problem with cheating is the lie.
Then, it's about what you allow and what you don't. I personally think I'm pretty much like most people when it comes to cheating. Sex, kissing, affection towards other woman would be a betrayal or even sharing to much private maters that you share with you girlfriend.
I don't mind the looking and talking to other girls. Some people are natural flirts. It depends on the nature of said flirting I guess. Of course anything sexual is a no go. I also consider exchanging sexual messages as emotional cheating. You shouldn't be doing anything of a sexual nature with someone that isn't your SO.
I can't choose one because I'm in between here. I don't think you can stop guys (and girls) looking because, lets face it we all like to see eye candy. Flirting isn't really a big deal - as long as its not serious - but certainly sexting or anything like that or more has crossed the line.
Flirting, touching in a sexual manner, texting other women romantically is cheating to me. If a person wants to do those things go right ahead, just tell me so we can call the relationship off and go our separate ways.
