A long time ago in a post far away I asked what you thought constituded cheating. Here's the old post if you want to take a look:
Since it seems very unclear what cheating is I'm going to clear it up for you. I think that many men are manipulated into broadening what constitutes cheating by women (sorry ladies, it's the way I see it). My last girlfriend thought that because I have a subscription to Playboy, that was cheating. So, here you go... cheating defined.
Cheating is being in a committed relationship and having sex with someone other than the partner with who you share the commitment. It is intercouse, be it oral, anal, or heterosexual. Masturbation is only a wrongful sexual act if someone other than your committed partner, or yourself, is doing the masterbating for you, or you are masterbating someone other than your comitted partner.
That's it! That's what cheating is. Cheating is not looking at porn, solo masturbating, talking to an old flame, flirting, chatting online, and so on. You may consider some of those things wrong, but they are not cheating. Cheating is sex and that's all it is. If you want to argue intamate kissing I'll give you that one as a "grey area". It's wrong but it's not sex. Therefore I don't think it's cheating. Betrade, yes, cheating.... it's not sex.
