cheating is when you destract the guy to win the game.

j/k

A relationship cheat is when you go out with the intent of meeting another person for a personal encounter behind an established S.O.'s back.

But I don't agree that cheating is "anything you wouldn't do in front of you partner". Thats way to vague and general.

I wouldn't do karaoke in front of him I'd be too embarrassed lol

Also some of the honest answers we give in these forums aren't things our partners need to see. I'm not on a leash. I'm an individual and will do what I please, ya know? :) Just because I want a little "me" time away from him doesn't mean I'm intending to cheat on him.

If your playing poker and the guy next to you admits he's cheating, it still cheating.
It all depends upon the agreement people go into the relationship with.
Whatever freedom you want for yourself , you must allow me as well.
Whatever restrictions you put on me, you must abide by too.
Outside of that, it's cheating.

Perhaps Bill Clinton could shed some light on this topic. He seems to have a real grasp of what is and isn’t cheating.

Cheating can be thoughts of another while you are in a relationship in my opinion.

Define thoughts because we’ve all pretty much cheated under those broad terms.

Arri,
That’s Bill’s dumb@ss fault for marrying her - see what happens when you’re young and stupid!!! But that dude’s taste in women is just awful - Paula Jones, Monica, Hillary, etc.

well you can't control your own thoughts. If you can't even think involuntarily then may as well off yourself now and end the misery of stray thoughts that you can't control.

Cheating is any attempt to lie, mislead, withold things from your partner or do anything behind your partner's back with full knowledge that they would not approve.

To me personally cheating is anything that you do to/with someone other than your significant other that you wouldnt do if they were standing right beside you.

I also believe that two people can have different ideas of what cheating is. When i was married my husband was talking on the phone and emailing another woman and i had no idea until i got the phone bill. It turns out that he had been sleeping with her for months (since a business trip to her city). He didnt think that was cheating and he thought that it was perfectly ok to "talk" to anyone. He was pretty much an idiot so that explains why he isnt my husband anymore i guess.

Anyway there is my two cents.

Most people know what cheating is...anyone with a conscious has that gut wretching feeling in their stomach after they have cheated.

Theoreically you're committed to each other. If one party decides to spend time and energy on other commitments (ie; flirting, porn, affairs) away from your commitment , you are being cheated.
