    What's the Difference Between Flirting and Cheating?

    Ok, here comes the follow up to Why Men Cheat?

    Go here:
    http://health.yahoo.com/experts/menl...g-and-cheating

    excerpt:
    My last blog entry raised the question of why men cheat, and thousands of you weighed in--not just on the whys of cheating, but on what, exactly, constitutes cheating. In fact, one woman said she considers it cheating if her man so much as looks at another woman. Huh? You mean he's not even allowed to scope, peek, glance, admire, or notice another beautiful woman? Now, it's one thing to hold a man's words, actions, or nether regions to a high standard. But his eyes, too? That seems to make about as much sense as our societal obsession with Britney's apparently empty underwear drawer....
    It's better to be poor than to be rich. The rich always have to fear becoming poor, but the poor never have to fear becoming rich.

    God, isn't it already obvious?

    Flirting = Naughty talk/body language between two people. Nothing beyond that.

    Cheating = One person having another relationship behind their significant other's back.

    Let's see how long it takes before this thread gets moved to the Chatterbox.

    flirting / cheating something like positive and negative... flirt will makes couple happy and cheating means hurting one of the couple punya feeling e.g cheats on you because he has been going out with your best friend..

    My thoughts :

    Even if you don't have any physical relationship (albeit sexual one) but if you are emotionally attached to that person (albeit having feelings for the person) you are cheating already in my books.

    Flirting --> leads to dangerous grounds. For all you know, flirting might just spark off interest in the other person's mind and from there, temptation is very hard to resist (thus leading to 'affairs').

    ahbuthen! I digress again. kk

    Flirting = suggestive actions e.g. eye signals, body language, spoken words.

    cheating = actions with intention to woo the counterpart's attention / heart.

    No worries. Let MrChang decide on that. For me, that ain't a problem. Meanwhile, the idea behind this posting is to generate some fun in here. Methinks, there has been too much bad news & complaints about this and that lately, so any deviation is a good thing.

    I'm cool with trying to have some fun around here. Just didn't like the way the Cheating thread almost practically became a Man-Hating thread.

    Hahaha. come to think of it, yeah, guess the guys got a wee bit of bashing there in that thread. Nonetheless, from what I have observed, some cheat, some don't. Applies to all sexes. End of story.

    Here's my humble opinion...
    Flirting (when single) = just one of the many ways of attracting attention...
    Flirting (when already attached) = is just as bad as cheating but comes with less consequences?
    Cheating = the ultimate destroyer of trust and mockery of true love

    There's nothing bad about flirting if the person you are flirting with feels the same... but what if it offends that person? Not everyone can accept 'naughty flirting habits' in office... in some far more 'developed' countries, they would probably call this sexual harrassment in office! hahaha..

    hahahahaha...sakaibear..dont larr reveal kress secret like that..keep it lar.. back to the topic now before our plantation manager decide to give us a kick.

    as for me cheating is a big sins. if u r attach and cheat on your partner, that will loose your love and trust. but if you are having a casual flirt, some ppl will think that you are a big playboy. like my case, i do talk to girls and at times also flirt with diff girls, but i am just being friendly. i have nothing beyond that. but some sentative gals will think that the guy is just a playboy or a jerk. it also happen to a girl of being friendly and some guys will think that the girl is a slut.

    to me, cheating or even flirting is up to one person to control it or how he face it. And also up to other party to judge that person..

    my dua cents lorr
    Signature....what signature ???
