Flirting and Relationships: Is it okay to flirt with others while in a committed relationship???

Making eye contact, winking, blowing kisses, smirking, staring…..flirting can be fun when you are single. But what happens when you are in a committed relationship?
Does all flirting stop?? I think flirting can be harmless depending on how you do it and whom you do it with. Some people may take flirting as an open door or an invitation that could lead to more.  And what about flirting that crosses the inappropriate line a mile back.  Flirting can cause major issues in a relationship and can ultimately cause the relationship to end.  So basically…..if you’re flirting while you in a relationship, you will need to make sure that you take full responsibility when the relationship comes to an end.  Sure, relationships can get boring sometimes, but all the energy that is used in “inboxing” to flirt with others can be used in keeping your relationship spicy.  In my opinion it’s all about knowing your boundaries.  
Flirting can make you feel confident and put a lil ump in you…but you have to always remember to treat others how you want to be treated. Would you be hurt to know that your significant other is telling someone else how beautiful or handsome they are and how they fantasize about being with them? Or that they think about them all the time. If it would bother you to know your significant other is doing something like that, then why would you do it to them?  There has to be boundaries or the relationship will NOT last. Also, while all the flirting going on, there is someone always waiting in the wings to snatch up what you didn’t appreciate. You have to always remember that!  So what do you think? Is a lil flirting harmless……I think so. But when it begins to cross the line…the relationship needs to be reevaluated, and decisions of rather to continue in a relationship need to be made. So what are your thoughts…….Flirting while in a relationship….to do or not to do…..That is the question!
