Brett Ratner is apparently directing himself in a brand new role… major flirt.  According to the New York Post, while on a date, the X-Men director couldn’t keep his attention away from four other women at a nearby table at Katsuyah in LA.  A “spy” in the restaurant says he paid for the women’s tab, and offered his phone number in front of his date so they could text-message him when he returns from London.

What do you do if your partner has a wandering eye?

Cupid’s Advice:

The rules of dating are always open to interpretation, but there are some basic guidelines you should keep in mind:

1. A flirt is a flirt: Being flirty is a personality trait, which, most of the time, is harmless.  Just because your date is flirting with someone else, doesn’t necessarily mean they will act on it.  Be confident in yourself, and realize a flirt may just crave extra attention.  If you get jealous easily, this type of person may not be the right match for you.

2. Spot the red flags: Make sure your date isn’t crossing the line between innocent and inappropriate.  Most of the time, being friendly, or watching an attractive person walk by isn’t a cause for concern.  However, if you notice physical interaction you should reconsider the relationship.

3. Get it out in the open: The best thing you can do is talk about it.  Sometimes your partner may not even be aware he or she is such a flirt.
