Most Helpful Girl
I’m in the same position, with a marine, and we both agreed that not getting too serious right now and going for it if we find people we want to and can get with is best, and since we’re not a couple, yet, we don’t HAVE to be all about each other. I tell him all the time about the different guys and chicks I find attractive and I flirt with or they flirt with me, and he isn’t put off by hearing it. He encourages me to live my while we haven’t even met, just yet.
So no, it isn’t cheating. If you’re not a couple and you haven’t met in person, anyone else is free game.
