Adultery and forgiveness

Assalaamualaikum!

I went with a guy to his house three times when his family was away and without the knowledge of my own family. We kissed and I removed my shirt for him and he sucked and licked my breasts, but I kept my pants on and we did not have any sexual intercourse. We just got intimate to this extent and nothing more.

I am now regretful of all of this and want to repent sincerely to Allah. Will this be considered as committing adultery? How do I ask for Allah’s forgiveness?
Jazak Allahu Khair!

    2) Be remorseful and regretful.

    3) Be firm about not doing it again.

    4) Do not do it again.

    5) Close all avenues for an opportunity for this sin to be committed again.
