Woman Asks Men If ‘Harmless Flirting’ Is Okay Even If They’re In A Relationship, They Respond

In some places, it’s common for married men or those in a committed relationship to flirt with other women. They might use dating apps, chat with women at the gym, or even get involved with someone at work. Some people think this kind of flirting is okay and call it “healthy.” But for many, it can hurt feelings and break the trust in a relationship.

Speaking of which, a user on r/AskIndia subreddit addressed the 30-year-old and above men in India if they engage in “harmless flirting” with other girls while being in a committed relationship.

“My partner thinks that all guys flirt. Most are just better at hiding it from their SO (significant other). Is harmless flirting okay? Do you call other girls ‘cute’ while being in a steady committed relationship? Do all men at SOME point do something that their partner won’t like?” the user asked.
