Dating jealous girl
Yet every day, we see relationships broken apart by infidelity, affairs, and people leaving one relationship to start another.
It’s hard not to be worried sometimes, but we don’t want to be paranoid or controlling. Here are five times when your worries may be somewhat justified and ways you can make the situations work for you.
Rather, he may want to assess whether she still has feelings for him, and if so, he might be more than happy to “take back” what he considers his, even just for a night or three. Let your girlfriend know that you’re a little uncomfortable with her seeing her ex, especially considering all the bad things she’s told you about him.
If she still wants to see him for a chat, then don’t be a cad about it, but try to steer her into a lunchtime reunion instead of midnight cocktails.
And deliver her ex the one-two punch of becoming the most awesome, caring boyfriend your gal’s ever seen, while joking once in a while about her ex’s patchy goatee or the time he split his pants on the dance floor.
3) When the Third Wheel Rolls too Close to Home Does your girlfriend have a platonic friend, who seems innocent, harmless, sexless, and always on the phone with her? Unless he’s her brother or first cousin, or prefers the romantic company of other men, his affections for her run deeper than friendship—he’s just trapped in the friend zone, too timid to make a pass, yet too dumb to move on to another girl.
It’s not your business to break up a friendship, but don’t be shy about showing your girlfriend lots of tender and specifically physical affection when this guy’s around.
He’s not a casual friend: he’s a confidant, and she may be tempted to share more than just words with him.
It’s okay to let her know that you’re uncomfortable with her seeing someone of the opposite sex so often when you’re not around.
And if he’s an old friend who’s back in town and on the scene, he may very well be trying to rekindle old flames that wouldn’t spark before his star burned bright.
This scenario is particularly difficult to dodge, but the worst thing you can do is act as though the famous friend is somehow better or more worthy of her attentions than you are.
He’ll get the message about what a serious role you play in her life, and she’ll notice the contrast between her lover and her lapdog.
