    Good topic! I’m interested in what people say about the whole witty conversation part because I am usually a more witty/sarcastic person. And, I’ve found out that more often than not men take that as flirting. For me though, it is just how I interact with people.

    *you’re.  

     

    Who cares if you flirt if you’re not in a relationship?  What is this, the Massachusetts Bay Colony?

    I don’t know, I guess I have mixed feelings because I don’t consider witty conversation flirting (otherwise I’d be coming on to half my office)…  I would never flirt with a stranger at a bar in order for them to buy me a drink (which several of my married friends have done, including not wearing their wedding/engagement rings out to the bars) but at the same time I don’t think it’s bad to engage in some witty banter… if it’s a stranger it usually doesn’t last longer than a short exchange with me, though.

    I don’t think witty conversation is necessarily flirting but depending on the circumstance it can easily turn to flirting. I honestly had a fun time flirting when I was single. Now that I’m engaged I don’t flirt, but sometimes witty conversations happen

    I think this is  case by case and depends on the person and setting. My Fiance doesn’t really flirt, so if he did I would raise an eyebrow. However if he was “that guy” who had witty conversations with everyone I probably wouldn’t even notice. I think casual flirting in an open setting with someone you will never see again is pretty ok and healthy.

    @olybride:  I’m the same way.  I tease my friends, male and female.  It doesn’t mean anything, but I see where people who don’t know me well might perceive that as “flirting.”  However, it is never intended to be that.  I don’t purposefully flirt with people who aren’t my Fiance, since I would be upset if Fiance flirted with other women.

    I think casual flirting with someone you likely will not see again is healthy.

    But I think if it is habitual or with someone you know that’s not good.

    @kayrie95: @Happy Hopeful Bee:  I’m glad I’m not alone! 🙂 Having good intentions and knowing where that line is are important though. But, I think if that’s your personality (being witty, etc.) then, be yourself! And I’m sure our SO know us well enough to understand.

    Harmless fun I say.  Both my sweetie and I are not jealous people at all, so we really don’t care if each other flirts a bit (in fact I don’t think we even recognize it as such in ourselves or each other).

    I think that if you’re in a relationship, you shouldn’t hide it while talking to someone. Having a fun conversation and being friendly is fine. I think there’s definitely a line where it isn’t okay…like taking off rings for drinks, because you’re leading people on to think that you’re available. I think honesty is important when talking to anyone, especially if one party is interested in the other. I have no problem with my fiancé talking to other girls, and I know he doesn’t mind me talking to other guys. We’re just really friendly people. If there’s something one of us does that makes the other one uncomfortable we communicate that.
