IF you talking to them like friends...Not Cheating

Flirting= Cheating

Dirty Talk = Cheating

Imagine if you were in her would YOU feel if she talked to other men on the internet?? Not a nice feeling is it..? Its like just like txting someone only on the internet..


I'll be defending the position that flirting with a women, be it on the internet, in real life or on the back of a whale is not cheating and can not in any way be held in the same light as cheating.

Flirting (or coquetry) is a playful activity involving verbal communication as well as body language by one person to another, indicating an interest in a deeper relationship with the other person. Usually, flirting is therefore, either seriously or jokingly, intended to be interpreted as a romantic or sexual overture. A female flirt, especially a young one, is sometimes called a coquette; a male one, a womanizer or player.
Flirting usually involves speaking and behaving in a way that suggests a mildly greater intimacy than the actual relationship between the parties would justify, though within the rules of social etiquette, which generally disapproves of a direct expression of sexual interest. This may be accomplished by communicating a sense of playfulness or irony. Double entendres, with one meaning more formally appropriate and another more suggestive, may be used. Body language can include flicking the hair, eye contact, brief touching, open stances, proximity etc. Verbal communication of interest can include the vocal tone, such as pace, volume, intonation. Challenges (teasing, questions, qualifying, feigned disinterest) serve to increase tension, test intention and congruity.
Cheating refers to an immoral way of achieving a goal. It is generally used for the breaking of rules to gain advantage in a competitive situation. The rules infringed may be explicit, or they may be from an unwritten code of conduct based on morality, ethics or custom, making the identification of cheating a subjective process. Cheating can refer specifically to marital infidelity. Someone who is known for cheating is referred to as a cheat in British English, and a cheater in American English.

Debate Round No. 2


According to Divorce magazine, only 46 percent of men believe that online affairs are adultery and 75 percent of married people believe it's okay to visit an adult site online.

Other sources suggest that:

57 percent of people have used the Internet to flirt.

38 percent of people have engaged in explicit online sexual conversation.

50 percent of people have talked on the phone with someone they first chatted with online.

31 percent of people have had an online conversation that has led to in-person sex.

Other interesting facts about infidelity:

About 10 percent of affairs are a one-time and one-day event.

About 10 percent last more than one day, but less than a month.

Approximately half of affairs last more than a month but less than a year.

The remainder of the affairs last longer than a year, with only a very few lasting four or more years.

Very few affairs end in marriage. According to one large study of business men who had affairs, only 3 percent of the men married their lovers.

According to Peggy Vaughan, author of The Monogamy Myth, most people who have affairs started by age 40, a surprise to the common wisdom which suggests that affairs begin later in life as marriages grow stale.

Two out of 3 women and 3 out of 4 men admit they have sexual thoughts about people at work, according to Playboy Magazine.

Most people know when their partners are cheating. Statistics show that 85 percent of women who believe their partners are cheating are correct. Fifty percent of men who believe their partners are cheating are also correct.

Thank you so kindly "Dirk" for your unwanted comments. Dirk is a internet stalker who loves to debate with the women.

Pro's Round 2 has some pretty serious plagiarism going on. In fact, the only non-plagiarized material in Pro's argument is the part she copied from round 1!

The two "flirting" paragraph comes straight from the Wikipedia article for flirting -

The final paragraph is copies from the Wikipedia article for Cheating -

Round 3 actually contains a link of attribution! ... But the majority of the content is not from the attributed link, instead copy/pasted from this page ( ) which is not attributed.

So, DDO, which is worse: Blatant plagiarism or forfeiting rounds?

Vote P-... Vote C-... Hell, I don't know. Can we vote them both down?
