Superb Opinion

  • Anything that goes against the agreements you have with your partner. As an example, my wife and I have husband/wife friends: if he looks at another woman his wife tells him he's cheating. My wife has explicitly told me it's okay to glance at another woman and even comment that she's beautiful. She's got the perspective on it that at the end of the day I've come home to her and I started the day next to her.

    But, to your question I'd say again anything against the partners' agreements and, more importantly, anything that violates the exclusivity of the relationship.

Most Helpful Guy

  • I don't use the word "cheating" because it invites arguments about whether something "technically classifies" as cheating. The gist of this is doing something contrary to what you promised your partner, violating their trust and, of course, doing it in secret so that you aren't discovered. If you must do something in secret and only when your partner is not present, it is probably "cheating."

Most Helpful Girls

  • Kissing, going on a date with, having sex (any kind ex: handjobs, fingering, oral) with, exchanging nudes with, exchanging role play texts with, or face time sex with someone who’s not your exclusive partner without their permission.

  • Anything you do to have people to like you romantically or sexually while targeting someone else other than your boyfriend. Craving someone else is already getting there, wouldn't you say?

  • Sexual words or physical actions such as kissing or sexual conduct.

  • Dating or sex with someone while currently in a relationship. No, I don't count "flirting" or "sexting" as cheating, even if it's still kinda scummy.

  • If you have to ask if it’s cheating it’s cheating

  • “Cheating” is determined by TWO people. If you haven’t had a conversation or twelve coming to mutual terms about the meaning of commitment, loyalty and faithfulness in whatever kind of relationship you’re attempting, then you have NO business projecting your expectations on others, ever.

  • Any sexual act towards another person, including texts, pictures, or any other digital, or in person means with another person.

  • Her having guy friends
    That is a red flag too

  • If you are married, every female interaction you have to lie to your spouse about it up to having sex with another person.

    If you're only dating, having sex or planning to have sex with another person , or saying you love another person

  • I classify it twofold. Lusting over anyone else even if just in thought when with someone, and any sexually/romantically intended physical action when with someone.

  • Looking on someone else's paper when taking a test

  • Kissing, oral, screwing and fondling.

  • Nothing, usually people do stuff like that for reasons

  • If you truly love your partner you're not gonna act shady.

    By shady I mean, going for lunch alone with other men, flirting, sexting, sharing nudes, touching, holding hands, talking about sex, kissing, holding hands, oral sex, sex etc.

    If you love your partner you will go home to them instead.
