I ticked B, but B and A would be pretty accurate. This is a long story so I'll make it simple.
Was going out with Michelle, but we had major conflicts with timetables and work (this was back in uni). At her suggestion, I started hanging out with a mutual friend (infact, Michelle's best friend) Jessica. Eventually I cheated (kissed) on Michelle with Jessica. I came clean the next day, but Jessica had already spoken to Michelle about it.
Jessica and I went out for a little over a year. I was still in love with Michelle though, and by this point our lives were more in sync. We were still very much good friends and Michelle didn't start dating. One day (March 14th 2005, actually) Michelle was over Jessica basically said "this is stupid" and dumped me on the spot... so Michelle and I could go out again.
These days it all sounds a little "Days of our Lives" but it's not as crazy as it sounds. We were (and still are) pretty good friends.
I consider what I did cheating, because I was still going out with Michelle at the time, but some friends consider it was just a 'natural break'. Michelle has never said if she considers it cheating one way or the other, she always says basically "It happened, it was in the past".
Cheating is rarely as simple as people think.
