1.No
2. Messing around while you're married, engaged or otherwise involved in a serious relationship.

Ooops, I thought we were discussing from a relationship aspect.

Describe "cheating"...

EVERYONE has cheated somewhere down the line...but there's a HUUUUGE difference between looking over the shoulder of another student to get the answer for question #12 and making photocopies of the stolen answer guide before it's handed out...

I've done the former, never the latter...

I did something once which benefited me GREATLY in school, but I was sincere...I didn't attempt to cheat, but it sure looked that way...

In my UNIX class, our usernames were numbers...more specifically, numbers in the 400 range...

For those of you who know UNIX, unless someone changes their permissions, you can go from your directory (433 for the sake of argument) to 423...Then you're in someone else's directory in your class...

Of course, if you leave your directory open to everyone else, people can be VERY nefarious and do sh*t to your stuff...I had my permissions pretty rigid...

But I had an idea...If the "400s" were the current class, how about I go look at the "300s" and see what the previous class did?...Sure enough, someone from the last crop of students still had their directory...and open for all to see...

So I simply copied the stuff over to my directory...

Now as I said....My intentions were sincere...I wanted to see what was coming up and use the info as a tool to actually learn UNIX...Not simply to get the answers (which would be stupid because you don't learn anything)...

One of the files from the student in the "300s"?...

The final exam...and the student did very well...

Before the actual exam was given out, I took it off school hours...I did pretty good, too, but was able to correct my mistakes (and the previous student's ) by working backwards...Looking at the wrong answer and then creating the line back to the question to get the right one...

Major advantage over the other students?...Absolutely...The exam was a breeze and I flew threw that (and the whole course)...

Cheating?...End result, probably...But the goal wasn't to simply ace the course, but to KNOW what I was doing...

Looking at Lollie' response, I see that "cheating" might not have been referring to school...

So in response if the meaning meant "in relationships", I've never done that at all...and find it reprehensible...

Well no based on Lollie answer namely due to the fact I've been with the same woman since she was 16 and me 17. Besides if you and remember Bobbit she would be worse and I have never meet a woman that good to make me want to stray as the price would be just too high.

Sorry I really should have specified I meant in the capacity of a relationship; my bad. Though we can open it up to cheating in general; looks interesting.

Default Re: Cheating

My husband and I had an "open" relationship for the first... I don't know how many years. Maybe five or six. This was at my insistence- I had just gotten out of a youthful first marriage and did not want another *serious* relationship, even though we were living together. I did not want someone clinging to me, or trying to control me. I wanted to experience independence and freedom, but with the security of having a best friend/ roommate/ sexual partner/ second income. I figured I had the best of both worlds.
We both slept with other people occasionally during this time. I don't know how many he slept with (I didn't want details, nor did I want to be required to give details) and I don't remember how many I slept with, but it wasn't too terribly many. Less than ten, I would think. They weren't meaningful.
Eventually we decided to commit to doing the monogamy thing. This was when we were in our late 20s or so. That's when we really settled down, quit partying, etc.
I don't consider myself as having ever "cheated", because we weren't in a monogamous relationship at the time.

Default Re: Cheating

1. Yes

2. Any form of intimate emotional or physical connection that you know your partner would disapprove of.

My partner of 9 years began letting himself go. He got fat. I don't mean a little soft in the middle but he was packing on pounds. I lost interest in him because I began feeling like he didn't care about me or appreciate me if he let his appearance fall off like it did. I felt taken for granted.

I started finding more to do outside the house. I would invite him to come along but it was all things he was not interested in like hiking, biking, going to the gym, playing soccer on a league, etc. Looking back, I think maybe I was choosing to do these things on purpose. I was also developing camaraderies with other guys who enjoyed the same things I did. It wasn't long before going to play soccer turned into playing soccer and then going out for beers with the team after. And then that turned into going to hang out with two or three for a late dinner and then that turned into walking one in particular back home. I don't need to go into more detail about where that ended up, months down the line.

Fortunately for me, my partner and I had enough time and dedication under our belts by that point that we were able to address the issues and come to amicable solutions. It meant we weren't right for each other because we wanted different things. We are still great friends, I am with someone new and so is he. We are all great friends and even double date. Sometimes, yes, it's a little awkward when my ex and I make a joke about something that happened 5,6,7 years ago and our new partners realize they will never catch up to our history but it passes pretty quickly.

It's my understanding that situations where people cheat don't always end so well.

Yes

I had an affair with my boss. She said she was separated and we dated for three years. During that time I found out she still lived with her husband. I should have cut it off at that point, but I was in love and hoped that she would get a divorce. Of course this ended badly. It usually does.
