Consider your Partner´s Feelings

Flirting on its own is great fun. It makes you feel good, and it makes the flirtee feel appreciated too. However, if you´re obviously flirting with someone while your partner sits, wanting to be with you, your partner will wonder why you choose to spend time with someone else instead of him/her. To make your partner sit alone and just watch while you spend time and energy making someone *else* feel good can hurt your partner greatly.

You´re supposed to be the ´special one´ for your partner, and visa versa. If your partner is feeling neglected, while you´re spending all your time and attention with someone else, that´s going to cause trouble.

It´s one thing if you´re both at a party having fun, and while he talks to some people you´re flirting with others. Flirting is fun, after all! But if you´re somewhere that your partner has never been, and you ´abandon´ him or her to go off and flirt, that´s not very fair. You need to balance the needs of your partner with your own desires to meet new people.
