What constitutes cheating? Is flirting with strangers cheating? Or only when there is physical contact such as a kiss or having sex?
In my personal opinion, I would include flirting, as cheating.
Cheating can be physical or emotional, so even if a person hasn’t had a physical affair, an emotional affair is just as bad in my opinion. If a partner is texting another woman or man and is flirty or suggestive, there is something very wrong in that person’s relationship for them to put themselves out there in a way that their partner should only be seen.
It’s possible their needs are not being met and that is why they are looking elsewhere, or they may have an issue with monogamy, depending on the situation and person involved.
