Question November 18, 2008

Posted by Kimmothy in Tandem Random.

I guess this applies mostly to the ladies, but I suppose I wouldn’t mind hearing from you if you’re a dude either.
So, here it is:
Have you ever had someone blatantly flirt with your man right in front of you? If so, how did you handle it?
If ya don’t want to share with everybody, you can answer privately. And if you don’t want to share period, you can tell me it’s none of my freaking business.

I’m just curious.

Well, I’ve dated band guys and a bouncer, so yeah. Girls blatantly flirt with the guys I’m with all the time. I’m actually a little flattered because, you know, he’s mine. The problem I have always had is if HE flirts blatantly back instead of just being friendly. (Band guys gotta keep the girls coming to the shows so the boys will come too, yanno?)

Of course, there was always the occasional girl that would rub me the wrong way. But most of the time I think it was because I might have been a little worried about her. Like something about her intimidated me or if my honey treated her differently that the others (or more closely to how he treated me).


I say, be flattered and give her your prettiest “Go ahead. Flirt all you want. He’s with me!” smile because you know in your heart that’s the truth.

Yeah, but was a gay man, so I wasn’t worried.

I’m lucky in that my Mr. is fairly oblivious to other ladies, but when I was dating him there were 2 or three other girls who had their eye on him. Needless to say, I won.

I’m with the above commenter in that, as long as he doesn’t flirt back, what’s the harm? I would see it as flattering that someone else wants him.

I don’t talk to women or let them talk to me. If one talks to me in public without me being able to avoid it…I just put my finger in my nose and she usually leaves.

Thank you for all the input – I’m working on a post about it!

so, maybe i shouldn’t admit this in public, but whatev.
my reaction totally depends on how much i’ve had to drink… as in, after enough (read: more than 1) i’ll turn into a total bitch and just mimmic ever move/word the offending girly is making/saying, until the following happens:
1. she looks at me like i’m crazy and walks away
2. the bf says “you’re embarrassing me in front of everyone we know” and walks away
3. i stand there alone drunkenly reflecting on how hilarious i am.

also, the random “word verification” thing i have to type in to get this comment to post happens to be “trampo.” blogger is creeping me out right now…
