Is flirting cheating?
Flirting is behaving in ‘suggestively sexy’ ways with other people, and is the first step towards developing the romance. This is what singles usually do to signal interest in others. It also arouse sexual interest in another person. If it is a simple admiration without sexual connotation, then it is not flirting.
Flirting isn’t cheating but it leads directly towards cheating. It is cheating when it starts to cause harm to your relationship or when you are hiding that’s when the betrayal happens and that can be very harmful. If you are having a chat and messing with someone, and your partner understands it, then you can enjoy it. But when you are flirting and your partner is not sure of the boundaries it can be very harmful.
No girl wants that guy who flirts with everyone. Flirting is fine if you are not in any kind of relationship, the same goes for the person you are flirting with, but if you are married, or in a serious relationship, flirting with someone is wrong.
However, other guys think it’s sexy to watch other guys drool all over their girlfriend. Some encourage them to flirt with them as long she is coming home at the end of the night, they don’t have any problem with that.
Flirting is natural. It’s human nature. You can’t call everything cheating just because it makes you feel uncomfortable. I’m flirting with another girl, it’s not cheating. But if my girl is flirting with another guy, it is cheating. It’s more natural for guys, you know? Also, others argued that flirting is healthy and natural as long as it doesn’t lead to anything physical.
