Keeping a romantic relationship can be a constant test for some, as they could not help but to flirt with other people even while linked to a special someone. You wonder whether it is okay to flirt or allow your partner to flirt with others.
There is no rule that flirting outside a relationship is okay, but opinions vary. Some say playing courtship with another person while having a romantic partner shows your dissatisfaction with your current relationship, as others think that such scenario means the couple does not cling too much with one another or that one accepts and understands the partner’s outgoing, friendly nature.
It helps if couples discuss whether flirting with others is allowed. You and your partner should draw boundaries on the extent of flirting. Obviously, being sexually faithful is a must no matter how much you play around.
