I actually wrote "cheating" at first and then removed the quotes.
It's the most common description and meaning, so I used this word literally even if it doesn't feel like it.
We have some rules though :
* not at home
* not with common friends
* no feelings involved
* nothing regular
Breaking any of those rules would be considered cheating by both of us, and would severly impact our relationship.
I don't blame you, I sometimes have trouble believing how lucky I am to have found this perfect soulmate.

It all depends on your definition of trust, cheating and lies.
For example, I've always been here for my fiancée. She was very ill (severe postpartum psychosis) during 2+ years, and many people told me they were amazed that I would still stay with her. That's the most basic definition of trust to me : she needed me, so I stayed and she knew she could count on me, no questions asked.
On the other hand, I occasionally (twice in 6 years) spent the night with attractive girls that I'll never see again.
I fail to see how it means I cheat on my family, or how it should affect their trust in any way.
I'll always do my best to be there for them.
And it would be moronic to let those 2 nights destroy our years-long relationship, that, even with a long illness, has been f**in great.

Fun fact : My gf once confessed that she cheated on me. I was relieved, and told her "me too". We acknowledged that it can happen, that it's not so big a deal, and we should try to keep extramarital affairs to a minimum.

Best regards from a sociopathic piece of shit.

I'm 33, and I listened to Neil for most of my life.
Old man, Heart of Gold, The needle and the damage done, Hey Hey my my, out on the weekend, Southern Man.
Those are all good powerful songs. He doesn't always sing perfectly in tune, but I find it acceptable since he really brings emotions to his songs.

My most productive hours are from 10pm till midnight, at home.
Everybody else is sleeping, nobody calls, no colleague can bother me.
I listen to a CD I've listen to a few hundred times, and I work in a very focused manner on important new features or bugfixes.
Before going to bed, I send a short email to my boss describing what I did.

After about a week, we have our usual meeting, during which colleagues say "we should do this and this, it'll probably take a month or two", with the hope that they won't be the ones having to do it. I just tell them "No problem, I did it yesterday night". Everybody's happy.
I tell my boss I'd like to take my day off, and go skateboarding.

So for me, it began by working the usual 9 to 5, adding some very productive overtime, and showing my colleagues and boss that I don't actually need the 9 to 5.
