Playful bantering is harmless and fun as long as one stays within the limits. You can engage new people and develop greater bond by casual flirting. There is nothing wrong in indulging in gentle flirting with someone as it is a well-accepted form of camaraderie.
People generally do not take offence or raise eyebrows when they are flattered by flirtatious people, especially more so when they are single. However, there is a different protocol for flirting when the person concerned is already in a relationship.
For some people, flirting is not dangerous, while there are others who find a notorious tease a little annoying. Tensions can creep in the life of a couple if one of them gets involved in excessive flirting. There are a few ways to say when flirting while in a relationship turns dangerous.
Flirtatious behavior has a sexual agenda
Flirtatious conversations no longer remain innocent and harmless when it has sexual overtures and innuendos. Show of over surging affection and dirty talks is sure a sign that flirting has crossed boundaries. Sharing your sexual fantasies with the other person may lead you to act it out in the near future. Watch your words and actions and express before the other person only as much as you would do in front of your partner.
If you have been hiding details of your flirtatious interaction from your partner or telling lies to hide something then you are probably doing something unacceptable. It is not possible for you to share things with your partner always but if your flirtatious behavior is causing you to speak out blatant lies then your stable relationship might be in troubled waters.
Flirting for filling an emotional void
A lot of people flirt simply to feed their ego or to fulfill their sexual urge. However, if you already are into a healthy and stable relationship then you should not think of crossing the boundary of flirting. Flirting often comes when one feels the lack of emotional connection with their partner. It might come easy to those who are not valued by their spouse or feel dissatisfied in their marriage. What often starts as an harmless fix to meet the emotional needs outside their relationship turns into a dangerous form of cheating. Avoid flirting only as a means to boost your self-esteem as it will hamper your relationship more than offering you comfort.
Being excessively good natured and nice
It is good to be nice to other people but being overtly nice might cause tensions in your married life. Your partner will not like you to shower too much compliments on the other person. Paying excessive compliments to people of the opposite sex may create cracks in your stable relationship with your life partner. You will end up hurting the sentiments of your partner if your actions cross the line of flirting. Watch every step and bounce back a little if you find your words and actions having a negative impact on the behavior of your partner.
