    If you continue to talk to someone who likes you, flirts with you while being in relationship? But you don't flirt back.

    No but it's inappropriate and will definitely escalate. I would be quite hurt if I found out something like this happened.

    By continuing to talk to someone who's flirting with you, you are encouraging them, unless you make it clear that you have a boyfriend and are not interested in them

    There is being polite and communicative and then there is encouraging the behaviour. It's perfectly fine and okay to speak to someone and be friends with them, but when they take that further and flirt or make advancements it is up to the other party to draw the line - and to decide where to draw it.

    In my opinion, it's not worth binning a good and fine friendship because the other person has emotions or feelings they can't help but have.

    I would say that this is definitely NOT cheating, but at the same time, it's not something that should be happening, and something that should be calmly discussed, rather than confronting the person who is "cheating".

    No but it is not acceptable and you definitely make it clear you are in a relationship

    Quite often, politeness can be confused with flirting :confused:

    Thats just talking , I wouldn't consider it cheating
    Read the OP. Talking to someone who is flirting with you is definitely not acceptable behavior when you are in a relationship!

    A partner may not see it as "just talking".
