What counts as cheating in a relationship?

People have different opinions about what’s considered cheating, so it’s up to you and your boyfriend/girlfriend to decide what the rules are for your relationship. Everyone is different when it comes to dating rules.

In general, you may be cheating if

  • You have to hide or lie about what you’re doing.
  • Doing it will lower your partner’s self-esteem.
  • You feel guilty about it.
  • You wouldn’t want your partner to do it.
