“So it is okay if I talk to that cute guy right?” “What if we are talking about sex? Is that cool?”
“What if it is just a back rub?” “If I show my boobs, is that across the line? He’s just looking.”

I stumbled on a beautiful way of defining it. I wanted to keep it for my own reference and this seemed like a safe place. Here is the definition:

It made me think. How do you define cheating in your relationship?
