So, is flirtatious texting cheating or not? Is sexting cheating or not? Is pornography okay or not? Does it depend on what it is or does that matter? Do you want a partner who is okay with your wants and needs, no matter how far out there it may seem or do you need a partner who understands you might need to look elsewhere to fulfill some of your needs?
If you think that anything short of flesh to flesh sex is not cheating, that can be construed as a reasonable conclusion. If you think that even a small amount of flirtation through text is cheating, that is also a reasonable conclusion. Some readers may ask how both can be reasonable conclusions. The answer is that it's what you can live with. Whatever your position, you don't have to rationalize it or justify it and no one has the right to tell you that you're being silly or uptight. What is important is that you have reasoned out your conclusion and it makes sense to you for all the right reasons.
Matthew 5:28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

All of that is cheating...
If you love your partner, be with them.
If not, leave them...Then your free to do anything.

I would personally say that if it is done in secret without the others consent and agreement then it is cheating, if there is nothing wrong with it why would it need to be hidden?

No, it is cheating. You're only cheating to get caught. It's that "taboo" thing.
