You Sidewinding Cheating Snake!
My friend and fellow blogger, Therese Borchard, here at psych Central just posted an important post titled: When Does Flirting Become Cheating? 9 Red Flags. Therese highlights a very important subject that is taking relationships into very stormy and dark waters of cyber-cheating. Gone are the days of those “harmless” office flirtations; glancing at someone else other then your significant other…
Yes, today you can “friend” people in any number of social media networks and view images and updates and chat/text and email all out in the open… Is it harmless flirting? Well, lets just say/hope your new online romantic interest is not Dateline NBC’s Chris Hansen or some serial killer, but rather an old friend you’ve known for years but just lost touch with. Nothing could be wrong to chat with an old high school/past friend right?
According to Therese’s post, yes and no. So, when does friendly chatting become flirting and flirting become cheating? Here are the 9 Red Flags titles she posted… I encourage you to check them out; especially if you’re in a relationship.
1. When it’s secretive.
2. If it has a sexual agenda.
3. If you’re spending a considerable amount of time talking to him (her).
4. If you are rationalizing.
5. If it’s meeting your personal needs.
6. If you talk about your marriage or your spouse.
7. If your spouse doesn’t like it.
8. If your friend voices concern.
9. If your intentions are wrong.
I would add one more… #10. Flirting is Cheating.
You never know the type of problems you are getting into, she could be a poisonous Coral Snake or he may be that low down Swamp Snake… Because you could really be flirting with death.
