When does flirting stop being harmless?

What Is Flirting?

Flirting is a way of interacting in which the suggestion of attraction or sex is implied but not stated directly. "How are you today?" can be flirtatious depending on the way it's delivered.
If the participants are secure in their belief that nothing will come of it, it's possible to enjoy flirting as part of a harmless friendship.
The problem comes when one or both participants start to take it seriously. If you flirt with someone who's vulnerable, under stress, or impaired by alcohol or drugs, you run the risk that he or she will think you want something you don't. If you're the one whose judgment is a little off for any reason, you could imperil an otherwise solid relationship. If you're not sure it's safe, it's better to turn off the flirtatious talk.

If there’s that need to interact with others and get to know them like never before, a little flirting couldn’t harm you that much. In fact, if you were at a forum with likeminded individuals it’ll make life a lot easier for you. You don’t need to keep all the things you wish to discuss all to yourself.
Have all the discussions you want to and enjoy your adult life. It’s the freedom everyone deserves, so why should you hold back. Participate in forums that share the same enthusiasm as you and enjoy the flirting scene like never before.
