    I don't think so personally as long as your intent is just to 'flirt' and not go any further. When it's innocent flirting it can be a lot fun and can even spice up your regular relationship.,

    1)   Is smelling food a form of eating?  No.

    2)   Does the desire to eat a different food make you go out and search for other foods through smelling?   Yes.

    3)    Flirting to get through the day is like regular smelling.  So - No.

    4)    Flirting to find a new food is a modified initial impulse to enact a cheating episode.   So, Yes.

    No, flirting is fun! I'll flirt with anyone if they stand still long enough

    Most relationships begin with some type of flirting or sexual innuendo.
    While flirting may not be "cheating" (I doubt any of us would be happy if we caught our significant others flirting with someone.) Relationships have ended over it. No one wants to see their husband/wife flirting.

    I've  never heard of anyone asking their spouse/mate if they would have problem with them flirting with others,

    People flirt for different reasons. Sometimes it's to stroke their own ego in order to prove to themself that if they were back on the open market "they still got it going on!" They want to know they are "attractive to others" in addtion to their mate. Some people do it to get help or gain some type of advantage. Others do it to "test the waters" to see if there might be a mutual attraction.

    The best definition I've heard for cheating is "If you are doing or saying something you wouldn't do or say with your mate sitting next to you then it's cheating or at the very least inappropriate.
    Cheating usually involves keeping "secrets", lying directly or by omission.

    Each of us has our own "deal breakers" or draw our own lines as to what is or isn't acceptable in a "monogamous relationship". It's probably best for both people in a relationship to lay out their expectations.

    No. There are some people who cheat because they just want to get the attention of others but don't intend to cheat.

    I would be uncomfortable if my boyfriend was a flirt whether it be in front of me or behind my back.  I would assume he wouldn't appreciate it if I was a flirt either.  It makes you feel like your relationship isn't very solid.
