There is nothing wrong with non-sexual, harmless flirting. A lot of people flirt naturally and that is not something to be jealous about.
But sometimes, flirting crosses a line. The danger signs of inappropriate flirting are:
1) Sexual suggestions and propositions
2) Secretive messages and meetings
3) Inappropriate touching

If you suspect your boyfriend is engaging in any of the above you need to confront him and tell him how you feel about it. You need to set your boundaries about what makes you uncomfortable and what you will not stand for.

Talk to him openly, avoiding accusations. Tell him his behaviour makes you feel unloved and that you think your relationship is in danger. Give him a chance to explain.

Good luck.
