    Maybe because they don't really love the one that they are with like they think they do
  • SURFER 2011/04/16 20:17:06
    Because its fun and keeps life interesting.People usually do it if your legally single but if your married try not to over do it remember you made a commitment. fun life interesting people legally married remember commitment flirting at a bar

    Because apparently one person isn't good enough. Or that 'special' person apparently isn't as 'special' as they lead them on to believe.
  • 11B1P 2011/04/15 02:29:07
    because they are selfish.
  • xOCTAZOOKAx 2011/04/14 17:50:59
    Because they are whores/man-whores.
  • Unique 2011/04/14 16:52:33
    well idk really but i guess just for the fun of it or just to keep their options open
  • Willie 2011/04/14 16:14:48
    Flirting is harmless social interaction. It can leave people feeling good, confident, appreciated, and attractive. As long as your intent is nothing further, I see nothing wrong with flirting.

  • gaara417 2011/04/14 12:40:31
    my guess is that its because they arent dating the right person or they just lack self control
  • XD 2011/04/14 10:02:39
    B'coz they are not serious about it*

    'cuz they are stupid and dont realize they can have their butts handed to them. Its not just about jealousy its disrespectful of the other person.
  • Aesa. 2011/04/14 04:59:13
    They are not getting the attention they want from their significant other so they seek attention from others.

    Because they're jerks.

    P.S. I like your new avatar.
  • Shelby 2011/04/14 03:59:43
    for some it's because they want to know if they are can still pull someone without taking it further, for others it's to make their boy'girlfriend jealous.
  • Brenda 2011/04/14 03:48:01 (edited)
    Have no idea - I rarely flirted single becasue it would be taken seriously, I'd have to really want something or have some hopeful 'expectations' to go there.
  • ElisaGalvan 2011/04/14 03:34:58
    either its just like already a natural thing like an every day part of life..or they just cant help themselves and have some fun...
  • atomikmom 2011/04/14 03:25:49
    Because they have no respect for their mate, and that's wrong!!!

    I will be honest with you . . . I am trying to force myself away from being flirtatious again. I used to do that all of my life; and I got so used to it that I never noticed what I was doing. I was wrong for doing that. I admit that.
  • GregGarrett 2011/04/14 01:48:17
    Because they can. I have been in a relationship for almost 4 years now and still flirt. I never do anything with it, its just part of my personality. Relationship isn't about this at all. Relationships are about trust and communication.
  • DannyHansen 2011/04/14 01:30:14
    bc maybe someone want to have more gf or more sex
  • mello 2011/04/14 01:29:48
    Sometimes they can't help it. I have a friend who's a natural born flirt and does it without even thinking about it. It got on her ex's nerves.
  • Munster 2011/04/14 01:14:05
    If they flirt with others while their in a relationship with you that shows their not fully committed to you. They want you, but they also want to be able to be "flexible" if things don't work out. Others simply crave the attention and do it for that reason. I consider it rude and disrespectful. I wouldn't tolerate it for a second, but I've never had to worry about that with my fiance because he shares the same belief as me pertaining to this.
  • GregGar... Munster 2011/04/14 01:49:30
    Not at all. I flirt all the time, it is literally part of my personality, helps me a little when I do my dj work as well. I am entirely committed to the woman I am with and have been for almost 4 years.
  • Munster GregGar... 2011/04/14 03:44:58
    If you and your partner think it's okay, then okay, but my opinion stands unchanged. I wouldn't be with someone who flirts with other ladies. I find it very rude and disrespectful and I wouldn't take it.
  • Liv 2011/04/14 01:07:59
    it may not be "cheating" per se.
    but it's being unfaithful.
    I wouldn't flirt with someone else if i truly loved who i was with.
    And it hurt me when my boyfriend was flirting with my best friend..that leaded to cheating on me with her. so it's not cheating, but it can lead to it if your not careful.

    Because flirting's fun and it's not cheating.
  • Max7 2011/04/14 00:31:01 (edited)
    If they really have a good partner, and this is what they are doing, it has to be because their not the partner partner Sharpest tool in the shed
  • ★misfit★ 2011/04/14 00:26:04
    Sometimes it's just in their nature (which is okay) and sometimes they're cheaters (which is not okay).
  • Loki 2011/04/14 00:24:31
    Almost everyone has a basic need to feel attractive, sexy, desired, etc. Flirting is a good way to feel that vibe. And for some people, it's enough. For others, it's not. That's a reson people cheat.

  • Angelina.Petrafina 2011/04/14 00:13:24
    Sometimes, flirting is just plain fun. It doesn't mean you're gonna go out and f*ck the person you're flirting with. It doesn't mean you're necessarily gonna cheat on your SO. But the kinds of things people say when they're just flirting can be a REAL boost to one's ego. As long as it doesn't go beyond that, I don't see any harm in it, and neither does my Hubby of more than 22 years.
  • Willie Angelin... 2011/04/14 16:18:02
    Thanks, Angelina. I'm married almost 25 years, and I happen to agree. I think some people get freaked out by it because they're a little insecure in their relationships. I'm pretty confident about where my wife will be at the end of the day.
  • Angelin... Willie 2011/04/14 20:26:23
    You're very welcome. And maybe that confidence comes with a long term marriage, so it wouldn't apply so completely to newlyweds, or maybe it's just a general confidence thing, and the length of time you've been in the relationship has nothing to do with it. I dunno. But I have friends with whom that's just the kind of friendship we have. We do it entirely in fun, and it's no threat to our relationships, and I think that's the key. But not everybody sees it that way.

    Force of habit? Dissatisfaction with their own partner? I don't know. Depends on the individual and their relationship.
