I would say yes. I wouldn't want to find out my girlfriend is flirting around with random guys.. I would question myself about how serious is our relationship if she was because I think no one would ever flirt without motives , at least one or both are doing it seriously expecting something more.
Flirting is the intention to get someones attention when you are attracted to them. It is what will inevitably lead to cheating if it persists. I think it depends on the level of flirting too though.
Flirting: behave as though attracted to or trying to attract someone, but for amusement rather than with serious intentions. While this is sometimes the case, it is not always. If you are consciously flirting with someone that is not okay. If it's just light banter, that's not a terrible thing, but if you are teasing them by touching them or calling them little nicknames that are completely unnecessary, then you need to check yourself.
I am a flirt by nature, BUT most times I don't even realize I may be flirting. To me, I am just simply being friendly or playful with no intentions of trying to get in someones pants. The only moment I realize that it could be misconstrued as more is when my friends may point out to me at a later time that I was flirting. I just think I'm having fun and being nice.
I wouldn't say flirting is particularly cheating, but it could lead to that. If you know you are flirting, then I consider it to be borderline cheating, but if you have no clue, then I don't see it as so bad. If you feel like it's cheating and realize your partner may not be doing it on purpose, then you should talk with them about your concerns.
I am not sure if that qualifies as cheating but I am sure about is it is totally disrespectful and very rude if you are already in a committed relationship. It shows that person is inconsiderate and just doesn't care about the feelings of the other.
Yes if I was dating a girl and she flirted with another man Inwould be upset and think she isn't attracted in me or would rather be with someone else. Why should I expect her to think any different than me.
I'd never flirt with another guy if i was in a relationship. I wouldn't disrespect him that way. I'd never give another guy the satisfaction of thinking I was attracted to him, and flirting behind my boyfriends back. Plus, I wouldn't be interested in flirting with anyone other than the guy I was in a relationship with. I wouldn't want any other guys attention... only my SO's
Some people flirt to take things further, others flirt just for the attention. They get a confidence boost from it
Eh its sort of cheating to me. It's something that would seriously upset me no matter how innocent he meant it. He's possibly making the girl he flirted with think he's available, which can put him in a situation he shouldn't be in. And for some guys, tempting situations that he could make a very bad decision.
It depends on your relationship! My boyfriend and I have a semi-open relationship, where we can see other people if we let one another know. It works for us since neither of us are jealous. Because of that, flirting is just something fun.
