To me this question should never come up at all because if you choose to be in a relationship cheating should not happen. I don’t understand people most of the time if you feel like you can’t commit to one person you don’t need to pretend to want a relationship with one particular person. I’m sure there are people out there that want the same thing you do, so just find that and move along Really. Why break a good persons heart that really and truly believe that you could be the one and deep down you know that your interested in multiple people. Also maybe its a common case where you get tired or fed up with your partner and you might stray away and that’s fine but just let the other person know and both of you can move on with a peace of mind. That’s why there are so many people out here not willing to trust and are scared to get into any kind of relationship because of the past experiences. They say that you shouldn’t compare situations but it’s humanly impossible to just push the past way behind you and jump into another persons arms and fall hopelessly in love without thinking Hmmmm would this individual hurt me too??? It’s just up to you to be wise and aware. So to answer the question NO it’s not okay to Ever cheat Period…Point….Blank…!!!!
