Nairobi - Once you reel that fish in, a lot of things go out of the window. One of those things is flirting with your partner. But flirting is like art, you either have it in you or you do not.
Some people are born flirts. Thing is they get bored easily and instead of flirting with their partner they sharpen their skills on outside prey. On people whom they are not in a relationship with. This may not sit well, with the other partner as they will not understand why you are neglecting them but are willing to do the same with people you are not in a relationship with.
Bone of contention usually comes in when you flirt with other people but ignore your partner. That will make them feel as if you do not respect your relationship with them and also they will feel neglected.
Jealousy crops up and soon enough so does insecurity. If you are a flirt, there are couple of things that you need to bear in mind.
Respect boundaries that are set within a relationship
There are some things that your partner can take but there are also those that can set a partner off.
If you see that they are not too happy with you when you do certain things then you need to sit down and have a talk. Respect their demands and look at it from their perspective. Especially when you openly do it in front of them and their peers.
If you are going to do it outside then you might as well put in the effort to do it inside
The relationship might have become lackluster but you are still in a relationship. At times it even gets a bit tedious to gout of your way for your partner. But if outside parties are getting what is theirs then need to make the effort for them to. So that they are not left out.
Flirting can only work in a healthy relationship
A healthy relationship that is not full of doubt, recrimination, possession, insecurity, jealousy or envy from one partner focused towards the other. Otherwise it always blows over especially if the other partner was never accepting of your nature or habit.
