Hey, Jealousy

Hey, Jealousy

So surprisingly enough, you've found yourself in a great relationship. You are caught totally off guard by the fact that this fabulous individual who sounds so totally different from you is actually pretty perfect for you. But there is a problem. Other women. Now, he has told you that he is with you and only you, and that he has no intention of being with anyone else. Good to know. However, you've also been trying to be pretty low-key about your relationship and not (for the most part) rubbing it in anyone's face. This also means that knowledge of your couplehood is not a widely broadcasted fact. And so there's this girl, who'll we'll just refer to as the Vile Biatch because that is what she is, who insists on flirting with your man. Being the friendly type, your man is somewhat inappropriately not running screaming from the room at the site of her as he should. Instead he talks to her and is nice to her. Not wanting to be the jealous girlfriend, you don't do anything but quietly seethe.

It totally sucks. You know he's into you and that he isn't going to breakup with you for the Vile Biatch, but it still bothers you. You want the Vile Biatch, who has totally seen you guys being cute and couple-y to back the eff off and yet she clearly enjoys torturing you. And you're sort of annoyed with your man for encouraging it yet you can't decide if you're being needlessly critical of him.

Why do girls do this sort of thing? It's so passive aggressive and awful. I don't care if you're 23 and think you're the bomb. You flirting with my boyfriend is utterly unacceptable and will not get you anywhere.

Thank you, that is all.

I agree 100% that girls should not flirt with other girls' boyfriends. But, the $10,000 question is, does the Vile Biatch know that your man is, in fact, your man? If she hasn't been informed that he's your boyfriend, can you really hold her accountable for flirting with someone she thinks is single?

Not necessarily on her side, but just wonderin'. :-)

I can't say that there's anything wrong with him being friendly, so long as he's not being friendly friendly, dig?

Besides, if he's anything like me he often will need to be bludgeoned about the head with something in order to figure out that a girl is flirting with him (as opposed to just being friendly). He can't react to the flirting appropriately if he doesn't think he's being flirted with.

Aha! So we're using the term "boyfriend" now, are we?


And don't you mind that girl... something tells me you could totally take her.

Betty Joan--I'm not 100% on this, but I am pretty sure she knows. She has seen us hanging out after most people have left the bar, holding hands, etc (yeah, we're totally that gross new couple). But I haven't flat out *told* her. Not yet at least. Maybe I can convince some other boy to hit on her. Provide a little distraction.

I-66, yes, it would not shock me if he didn't realize what was up. Boys are often oblivious to that sort of stuff.

E: hey! nice meeting you on Friday.

EJ: Yes. We are calling him boyfriend now. NOthing like a little possessiveness to make you realize what's up.

Don't forget...you can always bludgeon the vile biatch in your head while she tries to pick up your man.

Use the evil eye.

I have yet to find myself in a great relationship... (It's been a while.) I think I'd be tempted to kick someone, which, while not the most mature of steps, tends to make me feel better.

Oh, she knows. Vile Biatch knows, and is just as you said--a Vile Biatch. But if your Sailor is the man you say he is...he sees through her tricks, too. You are making a much bigger impression not carving her eyes out w/a pen, although...that idea is not without merit.

For her to behave that way--blatantly flirt with a guy who she knows has a GF, just proves how insecure and miserable she is. Plus, your refusal to react towards her behaviour at all just rams that point down her throat.

WTF? I HATE it when chicks do that crap. I think some of them just like to be button-pushers. Don't let her drag you down, HP ... Sailor knows yer the bomb, and jealousy is so unbecoming :-)(Take it from someone whose fought off the urge to slap a biatch many times herself ...)

Do you KNOW FOR SURE that she's flirting and not just being friendly?

If you want, I can smack her down for ya :)
