I think it depends on the people really. Of course having sexual relations with another person other than your boyfriend/girlfriend will be considered cheating. If my girlfriend were to hold hands with another guy, I am not sure I'd call it cheating exactly, but I wouldn't like it...

It definately depends on the person. Hell, even the two people involved in a relationship can have differnt opinions on what is and isn't cheating.
There are fine lines, and more to the point there are issues of respect that play a major role in what someone would consider an act of cheating to be.
If that made any sense.

personally i believe cheating is anything from french kissing to sexual activities with another person. i do not believe a friendly kiss on the cheek is cheating or a quick peck on the mouth if it's with a really close friend and there are no sexual feelings.

See, what cheating is, is in essense entirely subjective.
It also depends on your culture and all. When meeting people it's customary to shake hands in some places, kissing on the cheek in others.

I think an imprtant, crucial point to cheating is the issue of INTENT.

It depends on the people, I believe a kiss on the lips longer then a peck isn't good. Any sexual relations would definatetly be cheating.

sarah.. it realy depends on your age,, and the older you are the more mature, therefore things seem to lighten up
if your in your teens,, kissing in eighter way is cheating,, holding hads in .. considered cheating,, hanging out too much isnt realy cheating, but its somehthing to watch over... if your older, like an adult,, holding hands isnt realy considered,,, kiissing is where the line crosses,,, kiss on the cheek is ok, but lips and thereafter, your busted!

Ok. Cheating is when you put the other person above your boyfriend or girlfriend. Remember this: Men and Women are not friends. We are adversaries, rivals, companions, lovers, and enemies. ALMOST never friends. If he says he is cheating he is. If you hold hands or hug another guy, yeah you are cheating, not very much, but you are. Kissing or anything sexual... you are horrendous. I've cheated before and I HATED myself for it, and I deserved the suffering it caused, my girlfriend did not. She cheated on me later by having a crush on another guy and temporarily dumping me. The relationship never went anywhere but i still consider it cheating, we got back together and we are almost to our 1 year. Joy.

But yeah, cheating only becomes CLEAR at the sexual level, but can also be before that.
