You can unknowingly put your relationship in jeopardy when you believe flirting is just playful innocent behavior, when in fact your intentions are not so innocent. Temptation to go further can definitely lead to infidelity. Having sexual attraction for someone aside from your bae an easily progress into inappropriate behavior or cheating if you put yourself in a compromising situation. It’s like playing with fire.
It’s always flattering and is definitely an ego boost when you are flirted with. Be careful not to need this type of attention so badly that you are vulnerable because you aren’t getting any attention from your man. You could easily get emotionally attached to another person who satisfies your emotional needs.
If your man is flirting with other women in front of you, this is blatantly disrespectful behavior that you should not tolerate.
Harmless flirting would be simply smiling, greeting or complimenting the opposite sex in passing.
Flirting has gone too far when it involves:
- Touching or other physical contact
- pursuing the other person
- Continuous contact
Aggressive flirting can be a sign of lust, in this case it is best left between couples or singles who are available and are not in a relationship.
