    Is there such a thing as "Innocent Flirting?"

    Some say it's "not crossing the line". I personally think any type of flirting can get one into trouble. Any thoughts...?

    My answer is no, but then my morals, and religious convictions may be different than you or others pondering this question. However flirting, it often followed by sexual thoughts even if it doesn't lead to the physical act. The thought of sex with one other than your spouse is a sin as much so as the act. Again this is just my view on it.

    Lady E ,  Hi , depends on how its done in the  company of others , teasingly ?  Personally I believe everyone feels themself crossing the lines  when they do , Impulse control and taking responsibility for our actions is the key .  Another question is , do women flirt more than man or are they more open to  recieving flirtations , than mem?  I have seen so many people crossing the lines.  My answer , No there is no innocence!

    Not really.  If you are just kidding around, then I would classify that more as joking than flirting. 
    Single people flirt to get someone's attention.  That is the point.  While some of that flirting skill may cross over into one's sense of humor, that is entirely different. 
    Flirting can easily get someone into trouble and is best not to go there.  If you would say it with friends/your partner there then it would be okay.  But if you would cringe if your partner ever heard what you said-that is when you know it's crossing a line.

    If "guilty flirting" means I did it, does "innocent flirting" mean I didn't do it? Maybe someone else did it and she thought I did it, in which case I am innocent, but then I wasn't flirting. We should come up with proxy flirting.

    By my own admision I am a terrible flirt !! Yes there is such a thing as innocent flirting but the person doing the flirting must be aware of the limitations

    Yes, it's when one of the parties are being very friendly. Sometimes, it is a combination of beinf friendly, and polite. I used to do it, but I did not know I did it, until someone brought it to my attention. I made a correction in how I act with others.

    Depends on what your partner thinks about it.  I think it opens the door to things that you may not want if you are in a closed relationship.

    No--no innocent flirting, but I think there are people who don't realize they are flirting. My best friend is a mega flirt and she has taken many a guys from me because of it. Secretly I blame her for not being able to control herself, but she truly flirts with every guy she comes in contact no innocent flirting, it doesn't exist, you either flirt or don't flirt.

    I flirt and I talk - but I am always aware of whom I am talking or flirting with. I think everyone appreciates to be flirted with married or not, it makes us feel good somehow. I would never cross the line I personally draw in the sand when it comes to flirting - it can and does get out of hand and I in no way ever want to be the cause of another womans pain. Accepting responsibility for your actions and their consequences is what life is about. A fine line between flirting and seducing at times - red flags all around.

    No ... if you're flirting with someone it means you're attracted to them.  If you aren't attracted to them, don't flirt. 

    If someone were to start flirting with me, I'd think, "Oh ... this person must find me attractive," not "Oh, this person is just getting his/her jolly's off at my expense."

    If you're going to flirt with someone, be prepared for them to take it seriously.

    That being said, whats your sign?

    No. I agree flirting is flirting and you should only do what you would want done to you.

    No, Flirting is the mode of attracting and expressing the idea of copulation and to get the feedback on your idea from the other. So, flirting as a whole is direct indication to the fact that you are interested to proceed to the sinful act with the partner.
    So, innocent flirting, cant even guess

    I think you're right!
    If there is flirting, there is not innocent.
    That's my personnal experience.

    No there isn't such a thing in my opinion..If your other half would flirt and you knew it you would get mad wouldn't you ? So if you do it yourself you know that it would be something that would hurt the other one ... So it's not right smile

    after reading all the answers to this one i guess i need some one to define flirting for me,... i may be one of those folks the non-flirting hate,... i think i do it constantly,...

    i guess what defines inocent from ornery flirting for me is weather or not i would do or say it in front of my boy friend,...

    answer.... yes,... he does it too, in front of me,...

    and we both know who were going home with.

    Yeah innocent flirting is a tricky one for sure.  If you, the one doing the flirting, understand exactly what you are doing, your limits, etc then I suppose it is possible.  On the flip side, if you are in relationship, then flirting in general is just a bad idea in my opinion.

    It flirting has been flavored with INNOCENCE, It means, there is some % of care, love and the feeling to be with him/her in there. That's what I think.

    I agree with ahorseback, there is no innocent flirting. Also, if you are in a relationship that is fulfilling you should not feel the need to flirt or to accept flirtations.

    I believe so, because if it's just an wink of the eye or smile in passing, then it's innocent. Anything not pursued is innocent.

    Agree 100%. Any kind of flirting is an open door to further complications.  It really can't be innocent.  Just about all relationships begin that way, so what is someone thinking when acting that way?
