Why wouldn't it be? Let me explain it without genders so it doesn't became a gender issue (unless you think it should be one):
A and B are in a relation, C has the hots for B. A and B have made promises to each other (in some form) not to do anything that falls under their definition of "cheating" (which can vary, some relationships are more open than others). C has made no such promises and has no obligation to either A or B.
In order for B to cheat on C, that requires a decision on B's part as well, not C, and it's B who is breaking the trust, not C. All C is doing is expressing an interest. B has every right in the world to reject C if B doesn't want to cheat on A. As long as B has complete control over not cheating on A (and B does, since B can say no to C), then it doesn't make sense to put any of the responsibility for A and B's commitment to each other on C.
tl;dr: If two people have promised each other commitment, it's illogical to put any ethical responsibility on a third party to preserve that commitment.

I dunno, I think its sleezey to hit on some one you know is in a relationship. To me, when you do that you're saying you don't respect them enough to be faithful to their current relationship and disrespecting their partner. Now, its another thing entirely if you don't know.

"Respect" isn't always an important factor in romantic/sexual interactions (which is a term I'm using to include something as minor as flirting). The cheater might not care about getting respect and the third party might not be offering respect. Sometimes people just wanna fuck.
If you're looking for a boyfriend/girlfriend of your own though, then yeah, I do think it's stupid to pursue anyone already with somebody else.

No, because C doesn't have any obligation to that relationship.
The morality of an action, IMO and probably to some extent universally, aren't the same for each person. For example, if I eat the last cupcake, is that inherently wrong? No. What if my brother explicitly promises my mother that he'll save her a cupcake, then eats the last one anyway? Yes, that is wrong, because he committed to not eating the last one.
Having sex with someone who is not in a relatinoship is not *inherently* wrong. There are plenty of people out there with open relationships. What makes it wrong is if the two people, as two people in a relationship are best known to do, make a promise to one another not to date/fuck/whatever other people. It's a violation of that promise that makes it immoral, not some objective universal moral laws about "being in a relationship", and the third party, C in my example, isn't bound by that promise. Only A and B are.
If you still think it's wrong, let me ask you this: Do you think it's immoral for people to be in an "open" relationship where they sleep with other people sometimes? If you don't think that's immoral, then what makes an open relationship different from a "cheating" situation from an ethical standpoint?

Yes. I think it is immoral.
But I also think that you should not help others do wrong stuff, because I am responsible for the act. Without me, the woman would not have been able to cheat. I helped her do wrong stuff.
I think that all humans are responsible for each other in things they can easily control.
By your opinion someone is able to indirectly, but actively makepeople feel bad without being guilty by your definition .
After all this is just my silly opinion and I am not in the position to force my ideas upon others.
Thanks for your input!

Eh... there's definitely some merit to what you're saying. I have to admit I wouldn't feel right if I was knowingly helping someone break a commitment, even if I wasn't a party to that commitment. I don't like the idea that someone can "create" a moral obligation for me without my consent - "I'm in a relationship, so you can't pursue me" - but the fact that I would feel bad being the third party is evidence that I know it's wrong deep down.
Maybe what I"m really trying to say is "it shouldn't be wrong, but it kinda is" lol.
