Are You in a Flirtationship? What Do You Even Get From It?
Do you have that one friend who always flirts with you, but it has never gone any further than the sugestive remarks and lots of lingering touches? If you do want things to go further then you are firmly in the friend zone, but if you aren’t interested in anything more either then you are officially in a ‘Flirtationship’.
A flirtationship may sound like a lot of fun, getting to practice your flirting moves with a friend and having a little snuggle on the sofa with a chum whilst watching a movie. However, there are some potentially dangerous situations that can arise and certainly cause an instability in the friendship.
- There is always a chance that one participant of the flirtationship will catch some feelings for the other and perhaps make a ‘move’. Endless awkwardness is jest a few seconds away – it just takes a subtle lean in for a kiss, or a weighted invitation to dinner to completey destroy a friendship nd take away all the platonic intimacy it took years to build. So if you are considering trying to take things further with your flirting sparring partner, you better make sure you have thought it through – is the risk worth potentially losing a really good friendship?
- A flirtationship can also cause problems in any romantic relationships you might enter. Some partners may not be happy that you constantly flirt with that one friend of yours, even when they are with you. It can not only make your partner feel a little isolated and somewhat betrayed, they are also sure to be wonddering what the two of you are up to when they are not around. If your partner means a lot to you, you may have to consider calling a stop to your friendly flirting.
So are you in a ‘Flirtationship’ of your own? Hopefully, you will manage to keep your relationship in tact.
