Is flirting cheating?

Do you feel even flirting with the opposite gender is equivalent to cheating in a relationship? What if it's just harmless and that's the rapport one shares with the opposite gender? Where do we draw the line, if there is one at all?

  1. flirting is defined as*p**p*behave as though sexually attracted to someone, but playfully rather than with serious intentions.*p**p*Flirting can always lead to a lot of things and if one is committed in a relationship it is better to be there. But if the other partner is cool with it and with having multiple romantic partners then it's absolutely alright. *p*

  2. The problem arises if one is okay with the other flirting but the other isn't okay with either flirting. Sometimes we lie to avoid an overreaction. *p*

  3. True. It would depend on the couple finding a happy place.  I'm glad you're there. *p*

  4. To be honest, I think flirting is much overrated. Flirting has reached another level altogether these days. *p**p*I personally don't like flirting because I am traditional minded. My husband doesn't really flirt in my presence because he knows that I don't like it.*p**p*But I know given his way he would love to indulge in harmless flirting. *p**p*I feel if both partners are happy with each other why even bother looking at others? *p**p*However,  it entirely depends on couple to couple.*p*

  5. If u have a steady partner who objects to flirting…well u know what to do and what not to do.*p**p*Would u allow ur partner to do the same?*p**p*Do u feel that u shd hide this "flirtings" from ur partner? Then u shd ask urself what is there to hide? And stop doing it.*p**p*If it is innocent flirting, then u don't need to hide.*p**p*Hope u got ur answers!*p*

  6. There is a line. A very prominent one. And the person flirting it should know it the best. He/she knows his/her partner the best and they should know that at which point a line should be drawn and doesn't let something disastrous happen which can hamper the relationship. It's that easy. Flirt but do not hurt your partner. *p*
