You're in a relationship. You kiss someone else. Is that cheating?

In my relationship, yes that would be cheating. It might be forgiven more quickly than full sexual relations, but still cheating.

If you can't tell the about it, it's cheating. If you can tell them all about it and everything's cool, it's just kinky.

Yes! A kiss is a intimate form of relationship so why wouldn't it be?

Would there be a problem if the other person in the relationship walked in on the kiss?

I only do non-monogamous relationships so this one is a "no" for me.

Romantic kisses are cheating, kissing your grandmother isn't.

Depends on who is kissed, what kind of kiss it was, why was it done.

Two "friends" meeting alone should not me kissing on mouth at all. It is NOT the culture of this country. Why did you not kiss on the cheek? Did you want more of it? Did it happen several times? Than yes.

Uh, yeah. Any intimate contact is considered cheating.

I say no. I've been out partying and kissed people, so has my SO. That's just our fun nature though. To me cheating is taking it to the next levels and have sex secretly. That's cheating to me. I do understand the ways of puritanical America though.

It may have been while partying but I'm talking about serious kisses.

It's only cheating if you and your partner are exclusive. Some couples view kissing as no biggie. For my husband and I it would be considered cheating.

For adult relationships no. And doesn't matter what type of kiss, if it was just kissing then the person was just caught up in the moment. Anything else is blatant disrespect.

It really depends on the culture of your social group. I kiss my friends on the cheek all the time, and they reciprocate. A full-on makeout session would be a different story though.

According to President Clinton you can go pretty far before it's considered cheating. Remember he didn't have sexual relations with that woman. Some people don't consider that cheating so a kiss is just a kiss.

HOW you kiss them determines the answer to that... I kiss a lot of female friends -- none the same way I kiss my wife...

I agree, I hug all my friends, make and female, when I see them and some of them I kiss on the cheek. But I kiss on the lips is a bit too far.

I will assert that kissing on the lips is a cultural thing. There are many of my female friends that I kiss on the lips. There is nothing sexual or romantic about it. It is simply a greeting reserved for special friends. Hugs? I hug everybody..!

Personally I feel that if guys did kiss their female friends (vice versa) on lips, There is the chance of going too far. Whether drunk, or going through a rough time with your spouse or bf/gf.

Easy answer to that -- don't get drunk & keep your marriage healthy.

Yes I agree. But it's also easier said then done. Depends on how much effort the person puts into it.

Which tells you the fundamental value of their relationships to them. It all comes down to character & integrity.

Intimacy is cheating. Kissing on the lips is intimate.

Not by default. Romantically yes, but if you're like me and competing with your friends with various shenanigans (impractical joker style) and you need to kiss a girl on the cheek or whatever then it's not cheating.

If the wronged party says so, then Yes, that's cheating. 100%.
If my wife kissed someone else, she'd be cheating, and same goes for me. It's understood and there wouldn't be any debate about it.

It's wrong but not cheating. Cheating needs to be sexual

Hmm. I disagree personally. I think kissing can be considered cheating, though if you told your partner you kissed someone, I think there would be a better chance of understanding than if you told him/her that you had sex with another.

Christian1459 Cookin Trouble

But I see what you mean. How sex is seen as much more intimate than kissing, even if it is making out or passionate kissing.

If the relationship is open and that is clear between you and your partner, then no. If not, and there isn't a "hall pass" or the other partner doesn't know, then yes it's cheating.
