Do you think if a person flirts on the Internet, that this is cheating?

Would it bother you if your partner was doing this?

I think it all depends by what "flirting" means.
I believe that in everyday life, some of us flirt -it comes naturally to some, and means absolutely nothing! In my younger days, I was like this but it did not detract from my relationship or my love of my husband.

It was simply my manner!
So, online I do not see why it is different -the question was FLIRT and nothing else so I do not see why that would affect a good relationship as it is harmless.

If it is not harmless, then I would not call it "flirting"...but something else.i.e. to me flirting is a harmless thing.

I think if you aren't comfortable with your other half reading what you've flirtatiously written, then yes, it's cheating.
That's a good rule.
well said.

It's not cheating but I think it's insulting to your partner. It's dismissive of their feelings. And I agree that if you aren't wanting your partner to see it, then you know it's wrong.
That's all I have to say!
Well, I see it as something that can lead to other things.
I would hate my husband to do it, when we were married, and he never did.
Same for me, he expected me to have eyes only for him...and I did.

Yep your right too.
by jonaja
Yes. Cheating is cheating.
Your quite right.
by jonaja
Yes. I would be annoyed if my husband was flirting with another woman on the internet.
Me too.
by jonaja
Definitely yes. At any time when you are breaking the trust of your partner, you are cheating. It has a great impact on the relationship. As Wendy said, if your partner reads what you have written and is uncomfortable with it, you've crossed the line.
by jonaja
Flirting,as I have always understood it to be,is an innocent bit of fun between the opposite sexes.Once it goes beyond being innocent,it also goes beyond being Flirting! Cheating is cheating,whether on the internet or in person.
Jules, you have put it SO well, the word INNOCENT -I always thought flirting is innocent too and if the relationship is sound, it does not harm -it seems we are in the minority however!
by Finy
One of the possibilities is that "innocent" flirting whether in the virtual world or the real can lead to other possibilities that are not so innocent. Why take the path where you don't want to end up? Prevention is better than cure, don't you think?
The question was..ON THE INTERNET..and my answer is YES, you shouldn't be looking at other possibilities when in a committed relationship..
by Fran
Absolutely Right..
by jonaja
Yes it would, I would be gutted if he was doing this.
I consider flirting on the internet as DANGEROUS
Yes, I think so.
by Gia
I don't think that flirting with anyone other than your partner is appropriate.
I don't think flirting is cheating my self, it totally depends on the person how far they are willing to take it,
I don't know if it is cheating. I think of it more like being disrespectful and somewhat daring in 2017.
by fran.
I think its probably a dangerous move actually.
I'm not sure I would actually call it cheating, you haven't done any thing wrong, besides a bit of flirting they say is good for the soul!
