Flirting: How far is too far?

Okay, so I will admit it. I, Kathryn Reed, have a tendency to flirt. It's not like I'm doing it on purpose, I just have a flirtatious personality. But over the years, and I have tried and tried to learn when my "personality" is coming off a little strong. After all, one of my pet peeves is girls who flirt just to get attention, so shouldn't I practice what I preach? Well, I'm in no way a master at controlling my flirting habits, but I'm trying my best. So today I'm actually hoping you will interact with me by answering the question: How far is too far? How much flirting is too much? Everyone has different ideas of how far is okay, and I'm curious to hear your responses. Do you have a flirting problem and need advice on controlling it? Please, feel free to comment! I'm all ears!

Love, Kat

Oh no! you asked my opinion! ;) I think, personally, for me, no one else, that there should be no flirting whatsoever, and our communication with the oppposite sex should be limited to hellos, goodbye's, conversations about general matters, but as little of it as possible.

yeah, definitely strict. But I've had to learn my lesson!

I use to have a big pet peeve with girls flirting also... but not as much anymore. I think if you like the guy it is ok to flirt some (Just to let him know that you are interested! Def not to throw yourself at him or anything! Guys are suppose to be the persuirs!), but if you do not like the guy then I really encourage you to be careful! I'm often told that when im nice to a guy it is taken as im flirting. I dealt with this for a while and I came to the conclusion that im just naturally inclined to be nice, whether i like the guy or not! So, my big thing now is to make sure that i treat all guys the same. It just isnt fair to guys when a girl leads them on by flirting only to find out that she just wanted attention. That she didnt really like him. Would you want to be treated that way?

I think that you shouldn't flirt at all. Because, if you let him know that you're interested, that could make him think about you as a possibility.When normally he wouldn't think about you at all in that way. So I agree with Katherine, but it also depends on how well you know the guy. If you know him more then you will talk to him more. But, by all means I'm not saying if you know him more that you can flirt with him.I think it's wrong to flirt. But, some people do have flirty personalities. They don't mean to be flirty but they are, without knowing it

I know this is an old post but I am still going to offer my thoughts.....
"Its just my personality" is not an excuse!!
When you flirt, you are giving away little pieces of your heart to some guy who probably won't be your husband. Think about it for a min. What if your husband was in the room?? What would he be thinking??
Now, I have flirted before and regretted doing so. You can still be nice to them, just try not to start every conversation and do your best to be discerning.
I could elaborate more but I will leave at that...I hope I didn't offend you!
