I was very clear with my soon-to-be ex about that, and she dated people, as well.
But both of us were honest with each other, and honest with the people we dated.
and is it easier to forgive and forget if the 'cheating' occured during a separation? Well, I've been officially separated for 10 months and I am starting to feel ready to move on and date, but when I shared this with a friend of me, she said,"But that's like cheating... He'll never forgive you."So I'm just curious about what most people think about it.seprated= not together, for some it's trying to figure things out, for other's it's to be free and have fun, personally ( only my opinion ) if your serious with someone and you want to work things out then don't fool around. Well, I've been officially separated for 10 months and I am starting to feel ready to move on and date, but when I shared this with a friend of me, she said, "But that's like cheating...

KSeparation is kind of a weasel-word where this discussion is concerned. The person you need to have this discussion with is your partner, rather than polling a bunch of strangers on the internet.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.
In a long term relationship, during a separation, if one of the partners has sex with someone else, Is it still cheating? I agree with monlonel on this are you two married ?
- nickita Nobody here is trying to guilt her about anything.
I hope she has a fantastic dating life, and a fresh start to a new direction.
If all you want is people to agree with you, then don't ask. I know there are a lot of different circumstances that would change the answers from yes to no but generally could you forgive your partner if they had an intimate relationship while you were both separated...If you are ready to "move on and date" then that is called a divorce, and they are readily obtainable.From the standpoint of whether or not this could hurt your relationship with your separated partner, why do you care what most people think about it?but she obviously did feel some guilt about it or wouldnt have asked for opinoin, and ex's are very good at trying to put the guilt back onto the partner who has been made estrained....but being female we are all to found of finding guilt ourselves without onyone else helping us! Dear molonel - thanks for the feedback but I just want to tell you that MY decision is made and I don't need to consult it with 'my partner' since he left 10 months ago nor do I need to "poll a bunch of strangers on the internet"...
