Yikes. This is a tough one! I have to go with it depends on the relationship. This may be warped, but I believe there are instances where two females can "friendly" kiss without it being cheating.
My partner and I share the same beliefs in this area, when it comes to cheating. I feel that if he kisses ANYBODY else, it's cheating and if I kiss someone else, cheating. However, if I actually saw him or heard of him kissing another man, especially if it was his closest guy friend, I would laugh hysterically. I wouldn't be mad or angry or FEEL cheated on. I know, it's strange, but I'm just being honest here. The relationship he has with his best guy friend is... funny? Cute? They're REALLy good friends. They say "I love you man" and everything. Not daily, but when they have sentimental moments like when his friend nearly died. It's really nice that they're like that, but if they kissed, I would just think it funny.
If this was something my partner did often, I'd be suspicious. I'd have to ask that the man kissing stop. Lol. I wouldn't freak out though. Plus, I highly doubt it'd ever happen.
Now, if my partner kissed a female.... Oh no! I would not have it. I'd leave. Unless it was a kiss from a family member or something of that nature. Like a grandma, aunt or the other elderly women in our lives. I would not think a thing of that.
As for me kissing another girl, well, I've done it. Who hasn't? Where I'm from, growing up, we kissed our close girl friends all the time. If we were excited about something, we might grab the other's face and plant a friendly kiss on em'. It wasn't sexual ever or any big deal. Me and my girl friends have experimented before in our teen days, but I wouldn't ever do that now. I wouldn't actually have a passionate, long kiss with anybody else because that, in my opinion, would be cheating. However, a simple pop on the face when it's a close friend or family member, that's nothing.
