  • I would think that would be worse. I don't see anything wrong with a little innocent flirting wih a waiter or a cute neighbor but over the internet people seem to get really attached

  • Yes, because it can lead to real cheating... And it's called emotional cheating, anyway.

  • why would you? I don't think I would even talk to someone that would have my attention that far...............If you need to talk to someone on the internet or texting and flirt with them then you are missing something at home, My BF of 4 years flirts all the time in his texts and that's all I need.If it feels wrong and you have to ask if it is ok, then it probably is not

  • If you're in any kind of relationship, yes it's wrong. It can get out of hand and you shouldn't even start it in the first place.

  • I think it's worse than flirting with someone you might know, honestly. You'll say things to the anon person on the internet that you'd never say to someone in person or someone you know.

  • YES! My husband was a HUGE flirt before we got married. He has "mommy issues" and I always knew that is where the flirting stemmed from. Finally, I asked him why he flirted with every female he sees, and he told me that he knows that its boosts their self esteem (and in return, they like him-because he compliments-giving him a feeling of acceptance-he didnt tell me any of this, I just put the pieces together) and I told him that he was "boosting" their self esteem at my expense. He stopped.And I learned how to make him feel "accepted" so he didnt need to find it elsewhere. Anyways, my point is, flirting can sometimes be devestating to a marriage. I know I hated that about DH.And it deeply hurt me.
