Everyone's opinions differ, but if you are committed to another partner in a relationship and the understanding is that you DON'T kiss anyone else, kissing someone else is cheating. There's no way around it with an excuse "(I just wanted to see", "I just couldn't help myself", "It's just a kiss").

To some, a cheating kiss is not the end of the world, but to many, a cheating kiss would lead to the ending of that relationship.

If you are living with your partner, than I am assuming you are an adult. With that said, you need to act like an adult and make appropriate choices. Up to a point, you are responsible for your partner's feelings. You showed him no respect. You made a poor choice.

If you plan on staying with your boyfriend - then you need to act like his girlfriend. Maybe no more 1:1 with this other man if you know that there is spark between you two. Sometimes sharing emotional intimacy can lead to or be considered the same as physical intimacy depending on the context of the relationship - it sounds like you think of him more than just a friend. If you have considerable feelings for this other man, then you are not being fair to your partner or yourself. Staying with your boyfriend should be for the right reasons, and not because it's difficult to move out, etc.

If you have doubts about your current relationship, and you are interested in working things through, then you may not be able to do that if this other man is in your thoughts and you continue to have close contact with him. With that said, you should have a heart-to-heart with your boyfriend about how you are or are not feeling.

I would not have meet out with this other man again until you have sorted your feelings out.
