Cheating or Not? That is the question…

These thoughts have been running in my head for a few weeks now, and I thought I’d finally sit down and write out my thoughts on this and see what you all thought.  I need to do other posts first, but since this keeps popping in my head and just won’t leave, I need to get it out so I can finish the other things I need to do before the end of the week.

Topic:  Cheating when it comes to a relationship.

Cheating Subject - Angie's Angle

Statement One:  It is cheating if you think about or crush on someone else while in a relationship.

My thoughts:  I don’t think so, at all.  We are all human and will always be attracted to others.  The line is crossed if you actually act on these thoughts and take them out of your head and make them reality.  I don’t think it hurts at all to wonder about others and find them attractive and like them.  Making those thoughts known and starting to act on them, crossing the line.  It is then I consider it cheating.

Your Thoughts:  What are your thoughts when it comes to feeling attracted to others while being a happy relationship?

Statement Two:  I am not in a relationship myself, but the person I slept with is, therefore I didn’t cheat.

My thoughts:  I don’t know.  I think you did a form of cheating since you willing slept with someone you knew was in a committed relationship.  Yes they are the ones in the relationship and did the actual cheating, but doesn’t it cross some form of lines as cheating on your part as well?  This is the one that has had me going for awhile now.  I know of people that have slept with others that are in relationships and they know this.  Why are you sleeping with them?  Shouldn’t you have more morals to know that really isn’t right?  Shouldn’t you state something that says, “Hey I like you too, but you are in a relationship and until something happens with that I can’ t sleep with you?”

Your thoughts:  Is that person who slept with someone in a relationship also a cheater? 

Do you have any other questions or thoughts that make you go hum when it comes to the cheating topic?
