Well there are two woman who i consider to be my friends and they both spoke about this topic which happens in every relationship and is impossible to avoid. Flirting can be cheating and some say the act its self is cheating. first answer this question... What is Cheating? Most people say "flirting can become other things, that is why they dont approve it". Simply, I say cheating is something you would do with someone that you won't do in my face!
