In a committed relationship should there still be space for it? one might have no intentions of cheating or anything even remotely close to that. one might be totally in love with his partner.
One might not really be a flirty kind of person. Does being very friendly or kind of flirty make one feel good about himself? Although it might not “mean” anything, is it fun? Most people flirt now and then and there''s not much harm in it, but that doesn''t mean one should go so far as to say that it is good for a relationship either.
Read recently in the Ny Magazine...(Recent research studies about why married men pick a BMW over a Volksie has shown that one of the reasons was that if they broke up with their wife, the BMW would be better for getting dates).
So..see, in the back of many men''s/woman''s minds is the possibility that their Marriage / Relationship might not last. By practising flirting, in a sense one is saying the same thing. one don''t want to fall out of practice so that if one do break up, one can get right back into action.
By keeping that reserve shows that one is not 100% committed to the relationship. If someone is at 99%, that''s not bad, but if one keep on practising his flirting skills, it might dip to 98% and then 97%, etc. So while flirting can make one feel good, and it''s all right to do it once in a while, try not to make a habit out of it.
And definitely don''t keep flirting with the same Men/woman or you''ll soon be out of the 90th percentile and into negative numbers before you know it.
