Does your sweetheart FLIRT??

I believe that there's a difference between innocent flirting like what is done here on Foo and actual attractive flirting which can lead to heartbreak. In your opinion, where is the line drawn?

So far, I've been pretty darn lucky.

Foo flirting is innocent?

Shoot. No wonder I'm in the Dateless Loser thread so much.

hard to describe/define. you just know in your gut when it;s wrong/gone too far. I know a guy who's married who crosses the line on occasion...hard to watch when it happens cause he is a nice guy otherwise and his wife is a sweetheart...he just has too much to drink when they're out and he gets a little 'too wonderful'.....

I think my friendly nature gets confused with being flirtatious... it has gotten me into a little trouble.

Per my post in that thread, I like my fears. This one seems especially healthy.

It sounds funny but it is hard to tell a person you don't like them in the way they like you... it's a little flattering but then you wonder if you said or did anything that may have given the wrong impression.

But then again... maybe it's just my dead sexy legs causing all the problems and has nothing to do with what I say.

I'd flirt with artifice, but I just love her too much.

Pretty much the same thing with all the Ladies of Foo. Dammit...why'd you all have to be so awesome?

I'm a huge flirt, but it's innocent.

My wife doesn't flirt, but she doesn't mind me flirting, mostly because she is also friends with my flirtees, and I don't cross whatever line Siu talks about, I guess.

I have a ring on my hand, so I'm not going to flirt with strange women and look like some sort of creep. Better to just SEEM creepy than actually remove all doubt by flirting.

Does she? Not in front of me. Do I? You already know the answer to that.

most people think I'm a creep anyways, so I just go ahead and flirt. The wife doesn't say much about it as it usually gets us free stuff, or at least a discount.....I feel like a hooker!

I don't usually intend to flirt, but have been told I am flirty. On the rare occasion its intentional, its all in good fun. The BF doesn't have much game, so I don't worry about him

yah, I flirt, as does my wife (and not just with each other).
we are both secure enough in our relationship to know it's meaningless. And we
both have clearly defined lines that we won't cross.

I used to be a huge flirt in my teens and early 20s. Somehow I seem to have lost my mojo in my marriage. Now that I am single again I must locate it. la la
