    Copy and paste this, and put yay or nay after it if you think it counts as cheating - or any random replies are good.

    Sitting on someones knee
    Holding hands
    Kissing on the cheek
    A quick peck on the lips


    And anything else is blatantly cheating, anything further than kissing on the lips, a quick peck. But how far is too far?

    Not that I would be comfortable if my girlfriend did the ones which I said Nay.

    Anyway, kissing on the cheek is really common in Spain, like when you meet someone for the first time or you're saying just hi.

    the thing is...i have double standards with this i think - like i could sit on a friends lap (tbf it's only when i drink...not that i'm drunk, just that i'm more touchy after a drink) but if a gal on my boyfriends lap i would not be happy at all can't help it lol

    A quick peck on the lips May-bay (see what I did there? luls)

    Kissing on the cheek can merely be a usual greeting for some people, and doesn't often mean anything. A quick peck on the lips could be cheating - I definitely wouldn't be happy about it and would talk to my girlfriend about it, but wouldn't go any further than that.

    but i woudnt want my gf doin any of those things to any guy and she knows that. it isnt really cheating but if your doing these things beacuse you lust after this person then they would all be considered cheating in my eyes... even thinking about kissing somebody else would feel a bit like cheating to me... beaucse it would feel the same for my gal.

    Sitting on someones knee- Probably not, but i'd get f'ing annoyed (esp. if i was there).
    Holding hands- Yay.
    Kissing on the cheek- Yay.
    A quick peck on the lips- Yay.

    Though, you'd have to factor in the occasion. Like the posters above remarked, kissing on the cheek is general greeting for some cultures/countries- that's fine. Holding hands is a very 'coupley' thing for a boy and girl to do, imho.

    EDIT: I wouldn't necessarily class the first two as 'cheating', just something i'd get extremely annoyed at. The kissed, cheek or lips, mainly lips, i'd say was cheating.

    Anything more than looking at another lady would result in me dumping my partner.

    Hmmm. I suppose. And if you did any of these things do you think you should tell your boyfriend? Or if you've done more?

    but, like EmUIbA said, it doesn't mean I'd be happy about it. It all depends on what's normal for your partner I think.

    sitting on someone's knee is absolutely fine with me
    holding hands would be a little strange for my boyfriend but wouldn't cause any arguments, or probably even get a mention.
    a kiss on the cheek isn't something I've ever seen my boyfriend do but it would be ok with people I know he's good friends with and upset me a bit if it was one of a few girls I know he was trying to get with before we got together - either way it would get a mention.
    a peck on the lips would get me feeling pretty sick with this boyfriend because I know that's totally unlike him and he considers it cheating. Would have been ok with my ex though because it was just friendly behaviour for him.

    It would depend on what boundaries the relationship already had, what we'd agreed on etc. None of those I'd consider cheating, but more than that would depend on whether it'd be ok to shag around etc.

    Non of them... although context is more important than action. Even a full on kiss wouldnt be cheating in the context of a game of truth or dare imo.

    Everyone's saying no to hand-holding but it's quite a meaningful thing.. It would sound silly to get in a fuss over but you'd have to ask why they hold hands.. Must be a strong bond between them..? Am I the only one thinking this?

    Yeah I agree... most guys would only hold hands with girls if they were in a relationship with them.
