Courteney Cox: Online flirting is cheating

No matter what the circumstances are, cheating is cheating, according to Courteney Cox. The Friends actress appeared on the daytime TV program The View last week to discuss her directorial debut with the upcoming film TalhotBlond, set to premiere on the Lifetime Network. The film will showcase the happenings of online interactions and an online affair that goes too far. “There’s a lot of deception, there’s a murder,” said Cox, “It’s riveting.” The actress admitted that whether it’s in person or online, flirting with someone other than your significant other is wrong. “If it’s my husband, it’s cheating,” answered Cox when the women of The View asked if she considers romantic chatting online to be cheating. ~Graeme Mollison

    She needs to get off the plastic surgery wagon and come to terms with her age. No one wants her anymore so deal with it.

    Yup. LoL. Oh wait no sorry it’s acting. C’mon this is ridiclious that’s like saying watching porn is cheating. If your not physically doing the “Deed” or “Kissing, touching etc” then to me it’s not cheating. Harmless flirting is not only healthy but fun. It’s a good way to interact and build relations as long as you don’t cross that “border” and a mutual trust is recognized by the people in the relationship and the people flirting, then it’s good. But hitting your man over the head cuz he wanted to see how the sunshine girl in the back of the newspaper looked like that day just spells disaster. Acting is the same thing. Men and woman must have a mutual respect for the characters they are portraying but because most CANADIAN acting teachers and directors don’t regonizes true acting and were it stems from (Like its being Taught by Jim Ross at the international acedemy of Method acting) they (actors) get confused and mixed emotions when it comes to acting and when forced to act “intimately” with their co-star hence the countless break ups in Hollywood. Trust, Confidence, Love, humbleness and respect all play a huge part in understanding characters and understanding real life relations. But I can guess that won’t be in her movie. We shall see.

    Action is cheating. ANY action. Online or texting type of thing is discussing sexual acts with another person and potentially leading that other person on as well. Keep your backyard clean and you don’t have to worry about anything coming up. If you’re caught doing simple writing it doesn’t matter to the person you’re with cause then they will always wonder if you lied or will you actually follow thru.
    Vows state you’re to be faithful.

    Well said C-Dub.

    If anyone saw “Five-Year Engagement” *small spoiler alert* there is a very poignant scene where Jason Segel’s character is upset with Emily Blunt’s character because another man kissed her. She was defensive saying that she didn’t initiate, but he replied with, “there was a reason he thought that it was ok to do that.” That’s what flirting does- it invites advances from other sexes. If your body language and speech is giving people the “go-ahead” when you’re in a relationship, that’s wrong.

    And there’s no line to say what amount of flirting is “safe” or innocent. Speaking from a man’s perspective, if a dude is interested in you he’ll never be satisfied with “innocent flirting”. Guys, and nowadays women too, push the envelope to see how far they can get with a person they’re attracted to. The mentality is “if they cheat, they don’t want to be with that person anyway.”

    And if this is just online flirting with random people whom you’ll never meet, that’s just a little sad.
