    As per title, what constitutes as cheating, in a relationship?

    My example (Friend spoke to me about it, for ref. he is who this issue affects) is:

    His ex-gf calls him up.
    (Bear in mind he is in a relationship)

    Phone/video sex is insinuated and sort of starts, and whilst both people show.. intimate areas, one of said party quickly stops before it escalates further and stands up, says they cannot do it, ends the communication and blocks them.

    Would that, in your eyes constitute as cheating?

    "...I'm just asking for a friend..."

    Yeah right.
    Yes, right.
    What's funny is that in this situation it is.

    I'm simply promoting discussion, and I didn't know how to answer so I wanted to see other peoples opinion.

    Is that a problem?

    It all depends, some people are in happy relationships and the partner is fine with them having sex with others... weird but true. You have to know boundaries. Some will class a kiss as cheating (childish but true), some will class hooking up as cheating and most will class sex as a cheating so in summary it's doing something to break the bond of your relationship

    You're right, like different relationships have different boundaries.

    I understand - I think that the situation in question, whilst crossed a line it was halted and rightly so.
    In my eyes it wouldn't constitute as cheating, but it's a very very close one.

    If you wouldn't want your partner to see/know about it then it probably crosses a line.

    It seems like the vast majority of people are saying that it is cheating.
    Should I be pressing/prompting him to tell her what happened?

    No, thats your friend only to know and that's his business. Just give him advice like a friend usually does, but that decision to tell his girl is up to him.
