even if its just flirting and neither of you would ever take it further than that?

I am a flirt full stop, its something I love doing and I have married friends and we flirt, their wives know we flirt, they don't object but others make comments to make it seem more sinister than it is!!!

So should I stop laughing with a man cos he's married?

Have a good laugh, as long as this is all it is.

As long as you are not hurting the wives of the men you are flirting with, as some may not know it is only a joke.

As long as the wives are comfortable with it and the man knows it's all in fun , I can't really see a problem. careful to spot any sign that he might be taking you seriously!! *takes Mum hat off*

I think it's harmless and long as you make it clear that it's just good clean fun and as long as you're not hurting anyone along the way.

My married friends know me well enough to know that I don't do affairs.......... so it will only ever be flirting!

But wild cat you are right.... I did have to call a halt to one as he thought I wanted more..... he's no longer my friend!

I'm a straight talker so I do say it as it is with them! And no I wouldn't hurt a wife for all the tea in China.... cos one day that wife might be me!

Wish someone would flirt with me lol

Wouldn't bother me if my OH flirted with someone else. Not one bit. In fact I'd tease the hell out of him about it later on lol.I'm not a jealous person.

My friend however would poke his and the lady's eyes out lol. So I guess it depends on the feelings of the partners really xx

I think if it hurts the partner its a no, no. But if its not a problem to them, then ok. Its all about being sensitive to how the partner feels.

I think its ok to have a laugh with a married man, or woman, but when it reverts to flirting I also think its a dangerous game, and despite if the significant OHs dont mind does become rather uncomfortable and embarresing to watch especially if its a regular thing.

I personally would hold back & find someone who is truly free to flirt back, otherwise it sends out the wrong messages to everybody.

Deanna..... that's exactly what the wives say!! Most of the wives joke saying I can have their man!!

Fortunately my married friends and their wives are secure in their marriages and therefore its classed as major fun cos I never ever embarrass myself, the married or the wife!!

One thing my friends and I have is HONESTY!!

that would be me too Dizzy,plenty of single guys to flirt with,without choosing the married ones,who should be flirting with their wives!(goes to find sense of humour,think it went up the hoover!)


PinkDiana Report 22 Jun 2008 18:32

Dizzy I sorry you felt the need to lie about your feelings!! I really really am!!

But these wives wouldn't lie to me..... I have known most of them for over 20 years!
