  • Flirting becomes cheating when touching is involved.

  • flirting is cheating when you have the intentions of doing more than just flirting. I don't think that touching is always cheating, hugging or dancing with male friends is not cheating.

  • In my opinion flirting is heading down a dangerous road that could lead to cheating. If you honestly have no intentions of the flirting going anywhere then you shouldn't do it to begin with. You wouldn't want your husband out flirting. It's all about respect.

  • There's a difference between flirting and flirting with intent. As soon as you flirt with intent it's cheating whether there's touching involved or not. Either way it's disrespectful to your partner.

  • If you can't do it in front of your spouse, then it's cheating.

  • Flirting is harmless. Cheating is harmful. When flirting crosses over to an action that is harmful to the married one's relationship at home then it's cheating.

  • The minute flirting begins, you've crossed a "cheating line".
    "I do" means "I don't" to ALL others. If you wanna flirt with others....ya shouldn't have gotten married.
    Flirt with your own hubby!!! I know I'd be REALLY angry if some other chick started flirting with my hubby and claimed it was "innocent'. You don't flirt without intentions. Sorry....jmo

  • I would say slapping each other's butts is going a little too far.

  • everyones different... to me, flirting IS cheating.

    Answer by PURPULbutterfly at 11:49 AM on May. 18, 2010

  • I think any flirting is cheating. I would be very upset if I found out my husband was flirting, even if it wasn't serious or 'heavy' as you put it. He would be upset too if I were the one flirting.
