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.
