    Cheating is when one person has a significant other and performs any type of intimate acts with another person.It can also be both physical and emotional. Its also doing something behind your partner's back. If you have a friendship with someone of the opposite sex that's cheating. Obviously, if you're having any intercourse with the opposite sex other than your spouse, that's cheating. Being in a relationship means being there for each through thick and thin no matter how hard or tough situations get... If you're not sharing with your partner on both levels, maybe you're not ready for a committed relationship. Be honest with yourself and your partner and you won't have to worry. Cheating isn't the answer and it wouldn't solve anything, it could hurt that person as much as it can hurt u. And if u ain't happy with your partner or spouse then just be honest and tell them.Maybe you can talk or work things out. Instead of doing things behind their back.

    I actually just wrote a blog about this topic! Here's a piece of it..

    "Cheating can be caused by lack of sex or pleasure in their relationship or being put through a stressful situation that causes them pain. If someone cheats on you it could mean they really never loved you in the same way that you love them. Finding out that you have been cheated on is a hard pill to swallow, especially when you can’t figure out why your significant other would do such a thing."

    I also included a little motivation for how to overcome the situation!!

    If your asking about what cheating is, then whatever you did was cheating. I know this because you want to know if you cheated or not, meaning you probably know right from wrong.

    you have eyes, feelings & urges for someone other than the one you are meant to be with - it all starts with unfaithful thoughts. Anything that is not for your partner is cheating.

    I actually think cheating is ONLY when you sleep with someone else. I also don't think it's such a terrible thing sometimes (hear me out...). At times, men have to do this.
