Dear s.happenssosmellit,

Unless you and your partner have mutually agree to be in a non-exclusive or monogamous relationship (in which case it wouldn't be cheating) it's NEVER okay to cheat. The truth has a way of getting out and someone always ends up getting hurt. If you want to be with other people, you might want to consider why you're in a relationship in the first place.

Also, if you have to sneak something, or do something secretly, like see other people, then you already know that someone would get hurt. Bottom line, don't cheat.
