[Study] 10 Things People Consider Cheating, Besides The Obvious!
People have different standards of what they consider cheating, and we will probably never all agree on what exactly defines infidelity.
Huffington Post did a study at the University of Michigan that took a deeper look at exactly what behaviors people consider to be cheating.
The study asked 456 students to rate 27 behaviors on a scale of 0 to 100, 0 being not cheating, 100 being Tiger Woods.
After the most obvious, sex and oral sex, which were respectively ranked a 97.7 and 96.8, here are a few other behaviors and how they were evaluated on the cheating scale:
Kissing on the lips: 88.7
E-mailing pictures of themselves naked: 88.2
Texting erotic messages: 82.6
Sleeping in the same bed: 68.4
Holding hands: 63.2
Forming a deep emotional bond: 52.4
Sitting in lap: 52.2
Going out to dinner: 41.4
Sharing secrets: 36.5
Hugging for more than 10 seconds: 34.5
