  • i don 't think so. i'm a flirt and so is my husband. going beyond just simple flirting though would bother me and i wouldn't do it myself. so when i say no, i'm including: flattery, calling someone sweetie (i call everyone sweetheart and babe, i picked it up as a waitress guys tip more then and kids like it too so it works for all tables and well it carried into normal life after a few years of it), and things along those lines. touching hands, etc...that is too much, but i still wouldn't consider it cheating. cheating is an emotional (expressing things to someone of the opposite sex that should be shared with your SO) or physical thing for me.

  • i believe flirting is not cheating but it opens the door to temptation and can def lead to cheating!

  • as long as you take no action on it, and dont honestly have any intent with it then I think no. If I kinda "flirt" with the guy in the nice car just to see if he will flirt back then I dont think it really matters. If I get his number and start texting him than that is a different story

  • I don't think flirting is cheating but If my husband was flirting he would be wrong and in trouble

  • If your husband is in trouble for flirting then obviously you think it's cheating.

    I'll be completely honest and say that I think flirting is cheating. I need to gain trust and not be so jealous but at this point in my relationship I do think that flirting is cheating.

  • I don't think it's cheating. To me flirting is just being overly nice to someone, most people do it without even thinking about it.
