"1 in 4 Americans don't think one-night stands count as cheating"

Via Drudge: Online activities, like maintaining an active online dating profile while in a relationship or following an ex on social media, are blurring the lines of fidelity, making it difficult for individuals and couples to decide what counts as cheating, according to a new Deseret News poll on national attitudes about adultery.

Roughly three quarters of Americans agree that having sex or kissing someone other than your partner is always cheating, but they bring less clarity to questions about online and other non-physical activities.

For example, 51 percent say sending flirtatious messages is always cheating, 19 percent say the same about watching pornography without a partner and 16 percent say following an ex on social media is always cheating. But in each of these cases, at least 25 percent of respondents say these activities "sometimes" constitute cheating.

Of course it's cheating.

flirting is flirting. Of course, to most men, a conversation or a glace = "That woman wants to blow me, I know it."

3 in 4 Americans are sick of useless polls.

Wait till they get caught - or catch their partner.

A husband cheats on his wife, or vice versa. No one cheats on their "partner."

Then what do they count as? Party favors? So if you have a string of one night stands, there is no accumulation on the cheating spectrum? Who thinks up this weak assed justification bullshit?
