Will not consider a relationship with someone who has cheated in the past. Ever.

Generally it is. Or at least people will talk about it, so it's easy to find out. I'm assuming that's because the same people who believe that it was okay to cheat believe that it's okay to discuss (or brag) about it. I suppose if they believed it was wrong to do, then they are much less likely to do it.

Depending on what the meaning of "is" is.

Just curious does anybody consider what Bill Clinton and the woman in the blue dress did, not cheating?

At the time I read many teenagers didn't consider oral sex to be sex and since some of those teenagers have grown up and maybe members of the forums....

Oh and for the record, hell yes I think it is cheating.

I always have held that if I was to have sex with someone other than the person I was supposedly committed to it would be beneath me, which is in the same vein as when I started selling and decided if I had to steal leads from others it would be beneath me.
So, no, I have not cheated when in a committed relationship even when the guy was cheating on me...and my -ex did with one of my friends. Unfortunately for him, I cared so little by that time that there was no hurt, which is what his goal was obviously since he was bragging to me about it. Nice try, tho.
However, let me say that I genuinely like men and have always had male friends. This has driven some guys I dated up the wall, and they acted like I was cheating because I talk to my male friends or have lunch with them. I think it's totally stupid, immature and assinine to take that position, and it's their problem and not mine. But it has caused problems in the past. And some of the guys were totally gay, so how could they be so threatened? Men...can't live with 'em, can't live with 'em.

The majority of my friends are men. I have few very close female friends, and they are definitely exceptions to the rule. Great gals!
I warned dh2b about the "many male friends thing" before we got serious. It is my custom to greet my very close guy (and gal) friends with a warm embrace and a kiss on the cheek. Sometimes I get a great big bear hug from the guys.
dh2b teases me about "all my boyfriends" but he seems OK with it. He knows who his woman is, and so do the guys. No boundaries are crossed, ever. The guys know I'll kick their butt if they ever think about trying.

That happened earlier this week, or was it last?
But now that you mention the correlation, maybe Aristotle was lonesome too.

We had a very foolish friend who thought he'd come clean to his wife in writing about the times he'd been unfaithful when they were dating before they were married. With names. And said he was really sorry but that it was very cathartic to start married life with a clear conscience. Um yeah. This is not a good idea.

But no, never cheated. No need--I gots all I needs right here at home.

Cheat? Cheat on whom? My old golden retriever could tell if I had petted another dog as she would sniff me up and down. But she didn't mind, she just wagged her tale.

Absolutely cheating! If anything - OS = a very intimate version of cheating!

I will say that I don't consider being cheated on to be that big a deal. People need sex, their partners are not always available.

I consider a woman's body to belong to her. Want I am concerned about is 1) no cuckoos, 2) no diseases and 3) stay out of my billfold.

Ha
