One of my guy friends has a girlfriend who has a bad habit of intentionally flirting in front of him. Thomas said that he believed it started as something harmless that she would do in a joking way. Lately, he is starting to think she is doing it to get a reaction out of him.
Thomas can be laid back and relaxed and it takes a lot to get a “reaction” out of him. I believe this is the kind of thing he would dump a girl over. He said that he is used to women putting him through little tests, but this jealousy test is not something that sits well with him.
I can’t imagine putting that much energy into making a man jealous, but I suppose this is a way to get some attention.
How would you handle a date that purposely tried to make you jealous? Would that be a deal breaker? How do you know when it has gone too far?
Do you think jealousy has its place in a relationship? Is there such a thing as a healthy dose of jealousy to “show” you still care?
