    This one's funny. :p It won't be any good unless you get a better tally than what you have so far, tho. I'm trying to decide if I should answer honestly or toss in a wild card vote.... :twisted:

    im probably not the best person to ask about this cause i will flirt with my significant other standing in the room. But i always try to surround myself with people who understand that that is how i am and nothing has EVER come of it. As to online flirting? HELL YES. its the safest form of flattery because you are attracted to the other person usually based on personality instead of looks.


    but i do like me a good booty!!

    Umm... That is the purpose of polls. to get an honest answer :p

    I voted as long as it doesn't get to serious. Same thing with offline cheating. I call it "catch and release"

    I'm with MD on this one. My hubby is the worlds biggest flirt and I'm not far behind him sometimes. We actually do it in front of each other. It's kind of funny sometimes because we work together and we share an office. I hear him flirt with parts girls nearly every day. No one ever takes it seriously, it's all in good natured fun and it would NEVER go anywhere. So, with that said, what's the harm?

    I was leaning towards: Any form of flirting is cheating - since that is the opposite of what I actually think. Just to juice it up, since we're apparently all in agreement.

    Yes, Dad.... :roll: You got one.
