The only one that can answer to that is your boyfriend. If he's against and you still wanna flirt, you're free to dump him. You're not married are you? But better discuss with your boyfriend before acting. There's a fine line between being someone's property, having no free space nor time, and cheating. So yeah, as far as it's nothing serious, in my opinion you should feel free to flirt. But you gotta control yourself or you might slowly become a traitor. No offense, just a friendly warning. If you have a good relationship you might not want to risk it. Either way, be careful and control what you do. The thing is your freedom shall be respected, as much as your BF's heart. You want to be free without actually hurting him. You know what's right and wrong too, I guess. Good luck finding the right middle where nor you nor him become a victim of restraint/betrayal.

My boyfriend has always flirted. Since I met him at 11, he has flirted with pretty much everything that moves. It's very rarely serious, he just does that and it's just such a basic part of his character. Dude's like a budgie, he'll flirt with himself in a mirror if you give him one :P Because of that, and because we're mostly with our close friends who know it's all just a joke anyway, I have no problem with his flirting. It's usually just kinda endearing to me now. If I ever get upset with it, I'll just let him know and he'll tone it down and it works for us.
Generally, I'm not as comfortable flirting as he is. I'll flirt with our close friends and I haven't got too much of an issue with a flirty comment on here when I can make it obvious that it's just playing around, but I don't really flirt with all that many people I know because it makes me uncomfortable and feel guilty even if I know that he wouldn't care less and I find it funny when he does it.1
