Do you consider flirting cheating?

The oral sex thread that was created a couple of days ago made me think of this to ask, I'm curious to see what others think.

If you're in a committed, exclusive relationship with a person, is is cheating to flirt with someone else, even if it's extremely casual? If a person is a natural flirt but means nothing by doing it than being friendly, is that cheating? Or do you all think that, when you're in a relationship, that person you are committed with should be the sole object of any affection?

Vote up!

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

Just to clear any potential confusion:

Circumstances=Type of flirting, where it's done, who it's done with, etc.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

Personally, I love to flirt and be flirted with, and if I were in a relationship and I knew a guy I was with was flirting, I would probably ask for a 3-some if he was hot.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

I think your views of relationships are a bit different from most posters on here, Filo. (Judging by the "What are you looking for in a partner"-thread for example.)

OT: I don't know if I would call it cheating, but I don't flirt with another girl when I'm in a relationship. I don't consider that fair play towards my partner.
Though I also think it's a matter of intentions, so if a person is flirting without thinking about it then I wouldn't blame them.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

A lot of daily flirting is just being nice, especially to a long time friend, more like telling someone compliments (sometimes purposely over the top and more looking like a joke). It's so casual and insignificant.

Other types of flirt, I wouldn't like to witness from my partner and I wouldn't perform myself.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

This is really highly circumstantial. Each couple should decide for themselves what the rules in their relationship are. The problem with many couples seems (for me) to be that people really don't talk about stuff like this and set up ground rules and then somebody gets hurt because different people have different conceptions of what is ok in a relationship.

As for me, I don't do it.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

As long as it doesn't go anywhere I don't have a problem with it. As for 3 somes they are highly over rated.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Same here.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

only if you mean more than a jk/compliment

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Re: Do you consider flirting cheating?

Most of the time, no. I've been in a situation for the last 17 years with a friend's husband, who is a total massive flirt. He comes over, puts his arms around me, gets me drinks, is very very flirty, and usually his wife is right there, which makes me very uncomfortable. She knows he's a big flirt, but I think that sometimes it makes her feel bad and he IS a bit over the top about it. He is very handsome (well, at least before he grew that butt ugly handlebar mustache) and he knows it. We make fun of him all the time about how he's constantly getting hit on by men, he's got that pretty boy look.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.
