I chose 'Other' because unlike a young adult, as an 'old guy', my wife and I are way beyond cheating. We both talk to people of the other sex, have dinners or meetings with them as appropriate - but it's never sexual, so it isn't cheating.

Exes! I only have a vague recollection of who they were - and no idea where they are today.

Kissing, sexual touching, extreme flirting or emotional cheating. I told my hubby when we got together--you kiss em you might as well have fucked them. It is all the same to me!

Emotional cheating is much harder to pinpoint at times, but I feel cheated on whenever I'm not the constant center of my hubby's attention in favor of a particular woman. Definitely cheating if you're physically touching someone else sexually.

anything sexual. whether it is sexual thoughts, conversations, flirting, physical contact. It all goes under cheating.

I agree with all that Married with Children said. The thoughts I wouldn't go as far as saying is cheating but I think that is setting you down a dangerous road. But sexual conversations with others, flirting and physical contact I agree.

Having sex with someone outside of our relationship is cheating. Conversations and even a little flirting aren't cheating to me, unless it's in the active pursuit of a relationship.

LD29 Yeah I guess there is some truth to what you say there. The intention of that is definitely important. If the other is seeking out more then just conversation or simple flirting then it is an issue for sure.

For us cheating would be having sex with someone else and not communicating about it before hand.

Having another person in their life that I don't know about--that is being hidden from me

This is a fun one, because I would say a romantic relationship with another person that your partner is not aware of and doesn't approve of. My girlfriend would say that sex or the beginnings of anything romantic with someone other than your partner at all is cheating. I go by her standards because I don't care as much and she's very serious about this.

Cheating for me: falling IN love with someone else and OUT of love with me, or having sex/kissing someone without my consent.

...How can one cheat by masturbating? Which I guess there are some that feel that it is somehow, but I think it's silly. (Plus if they're on this forum they probably would be SUCH a cheater by now considering this is a sex toy site and all)
