None of us are surprised by married men (or women, I imagine) who can be, how do you say, overly complimentary. I’m sure not all mean to hand out flatteries to the point of being inappropriate, but yet, it happens.
I recently met what seemed a very happy couple who have been married nearly two decades. They were very affectionate with eachother, but I felt the husband was a little too forward with me, especially while standing in front of his wife. Just little things, like saying I have a glow, great smile, have lovely skin, etc. I wondered if his wife was used to him complimenting other women or if she was as uncomfortable as I grew to be.
Of course, it could have been nothing, but I felt bad even wondering if the wife was at all bothered.
Have you ever been with a partner you felt was overly flirty with other men or women? Are you sure that was the case, or was it insecurity on your part? Did you feel you couldn’t say anything for fear it would seem like your “problem” instead of being valid? Or have you been accused of this behavior unfairly or accurately?
