    How much flirting is too much? Or is flirting itself cheating?

    There's never "too much" flirting but you may dial it back if it upsets your partner. But, it is not in any way cheating. People who think that are insecure.

    Ummm... I would get majorly jealous if I was with someone (which would HVAE to be a monogomous thing) and they flirted with another dude... I can flirt with a couple of my female friends just because its completely impossible to progres... with another guy though... I mean, I just wouldnt want any flirting with somebody single, end it quickly, joke about it, dont ever let it linger with any loose ends or it borders on "meaning something"

    I guess it depends.

    Flirting can be harmless but if it's serious than it's probably a sign of a bad relationship... so any insecurities are sometimes warranted.


    That said, I'm the jealous type, so I'd be upset about my boyfriend flirting at all

    Hmmm. This is a good question. I guess you could say there is an art to flirting with someone and not making it seem like you have intent on cheating if you are in a relationship or making yourself seem easy.

    I suppose it really all depends on the level of trust you have with your partner and the comfort level they have with you being flirty. From their stand point it's flirting that got you guys hooked up in the first place so for your partner to see you being so casual about flirting with others might strike a negative chord with them.

    Yes, I believe flirting is fun but I also believe at times it can be a bit misleading and sometimes disrespectful. There is so such a thing as too much flirting to the point where it looks like you are throwing yourself at someone and their is a time and a place for it as well.

    Moderation and knowing your limits as well as your partners limits is a good thing. Flirting can lead to cheating if left unchecked. If anything you don't wanna be seen and known as a tease because that could lead to other things of a very dark nature. Just be safe and considerate in your actions and you should be fine.

    I think flirting is not cheating unless it goes overboard than that's the point where it crosses a huge line. Overboard meaning when the other guy if he's flirting back and begins to do other things as well like touching or buying things for the guy (your bf) that's when it's overboard. If they're friends and that's a natural relationship that exists than I guess it's fine.

    I would agree partially to this, partially cause for some reason I just flirt with people without intending to do so.
