Relationships: Be jealous!

I am friends with a married couple and they have an ongoing fight I keep getting dragged into. The wife, Linda swears she is not insecure or distrustful of her husband. She says he is a good man and she knows it but sometimes she gets jealous. She thinks it is a “healthy” amount of jealousy.

He says any jealousy is too much. If he has shown he is trustworthy, why does she get jealous when he hangs out with female co-workers at happy hour? Why does she need to always know who he is texting?

I literally run from this debate because I can see both sides of the argument. Linda says if she didn’t have any type of reaction to this sort of thing, he would think she didn’t mind..and she does. Shouldn’t she be honest with him about her jealous feelings?

When do you think being jealous is valid and warranted? Would it bother you if the person you were with never got jealous? Would you think they simply didn’t care about you?

Now that you ask, WD, one guy is a little pissed at me because I won’t come over Saturday evening and cuddle and watch a movie with him. It’s going to be a beautiful weekend, I want to be out.

Why don’t you tell/suggest dude to do something outside. Unless you just trying to shake dude.

DuShawn ~ no, I don’t. That’s why I wont be there.

His feet are bothering him and he wants to stay in this weekend. He can do that. I’m single and free and can do what I want to do. If I don’t want to set myself up to be groped, I have that right and insight (lol).

DuShawn ~ more like Bluz situation where the guy was “courting” her by asking her to lay with him on the couch and cuddle all the while asking ever so sweetly if she every had chocolate covered nuts that melt in her mouth.

Leggs- “watch a movie with him.” Mmm hmmm, you weren’t supposed to be able to decode that one. A man had once asked if he could come to my house for wine and cheese. I told him that he could find a restaurant that served wine and cheese and we could go there.

Modern Day Confucius would say:

It is much better to want the mate you do not have than to have the mate you do not want.
