Hmmm---all interesting replies! MY personal views on cheating cannot be had, unless I first discuss the "boundaries" part.
For the most part, there's different parts of me that agrees with all of you...you I still hold my opinion!
It's all a matter of trust---whether that trust be weak, or strong...it's still trust! If I had a girl who I full fledgidly trusted (and I do), and she shared my EXACT views on cheating (which she doesn't) then I'd be perfectly fine.
Y'see---to me...cheating is doing ANYTHING in which starts a romantic relationship with someone else. Dating, risks romance---so that's kinda outta the question. Sure, if me and my girl had a full understanding and same views---she could fool around with whoever she wanted to. It would be okay to me, just as long as she outright TOLD me! Sure, it'd hurt---but unless it's romance...she still loves me, and nothing really changes that! I trusted her to do as she wished---and she did...I trust her to tell me, and if that ever happen, I would gladly like to hear of it.
Y'see---my "theory" stretches and breaks the trust! The trust is broken, by selling your body...but that's compensated by being told about it! We can't learn about ourselves by being chained to one person---but as long as it doesn't go stupidly far...it's okay!
Mmmm...and again, if you feel bad about it---then you're most likely to stop! Aye? And when that happens, you KNOW you're cheating! *nods nods*
Let's turn the page here---to yet another aspect. Another trust; if she doesn't want you to cheat...and wants you to keep your love and body sacred to one another. ...You tell her you won't---then she's trusting you not to break her trust! Dispite anything, her word...her not wanting you to pounce another girl---should be easy! If you really care for her, then you'd respect her word...and request! Should you not?
Hugging, is fine
Kissing on the cheek, is fine
Kissing, is fine (just as long as it isn't everyone you see)
Sex, it's a double edged sword
Finding love in another, is drawing the line!
Those're my two-pennies!
