    I don’t really like it when it’s happening, but I always have to tell my Fiance that he was just being flirted with because he never even notices! And so when I’m telling him about it, it’s kinda funny and I reliaze it’s kind of flattering (for him as well as me!).

    @SweetartMD:  The only time it bothers me is when it’s persistent or done out of spite. (we used to have a “friend” who would run to hug him whenever we showed up where she was, and mid-hug she would shoot me a nasty look over his shoulder. He couldn’t figure out why I didn’t like her…)


    For example, we were out at a bar one night and Random DrunkGirl comes up puts her arms around him and starts “Hiii…” I gave her “The Look” and she walked away. Not 15 minutes later, while I was talking to some of our other friends, RDG is back hanging all over him. He took care of it that time and she didn’t come back. 


    But the girls that stare at him when we’re out anywhere (he’s smokin’ hot, not gonna lie) make me laugh. He, like most men, is completely oblivious to it all lol.

    I think I would get jealous if my Fiance flirted back, but he’s just always clueless about it.  The only woman I’ve caught him staring at is me, so I’m sure that helps me feel a bit more secure.

    What bothers me is when ladies do it in front of me…it’s a virtual slap in my face and RUDE.  leads me to believe those kinds of ladies are evil. LOL

    Like right in front of me?  Never happens, but I would find it rude and disrespectful.

    @SweetartMD:  Depends on the intention behind it and his history with the person (if any). I am a very upfront person so I have no problem saying something to the girl, which I have done in the past. I am not one to suffer in silence!

    Doesn’t bother me at all. What other people do is not my concern. If my partner acted inappropriately (as defined by us within our relationship) then it would be a problem.


    A single person is free to flirt with whomever they choose since they are single. If they flirt with a person in a relationship then the only person doing something wrong is the person in a relationship if they act inappropriately.

    I would only get annoyed if he flirted back, which he doesn’t. Fiance is also good-looking (everyone tells me so) and tends to attract attention when we’re at bars and places like that. But he’s always so devoted and respectful towards me, most women back off because he makes it clear we’re together. 


    I remember a few months into our relationship, we ran into one of my colleagues at a mutual friend’s going-away party…this girl was all over Fiance, speaking French to him (he’s Swiss) and then later called him. When I called her out on it casually at work, she denied calling him and has since backed off.

    I’m also one of those girls who doesn’t like to appear possessive or jealous, so I give him free range to talk to whomever he pleases…thankfully he’s very well-behaved.

    @SweetartMD:  As far as when dudes hit on me, FH is the same way I am. Once is funny. Any more is disrespectful to both of us.

    @SweetartMD:  Totally agree..nice to know you take the prize at the end of the day:) . I think it’s cute when people get all flirty and nervous in front of my Fiance.. he is super shy and gets this “I’m mortified” look on his face haha! Too funny

    Nope I don’t get jealous.  I know and trust my Darling Husband. He would just roll his eyes at whoever is flirting and  be done with it

    I only really would get annoyed if he didn’t put a stop to it if he realized what was happening.

    I don’t really get irritated if a girl flirts with him not knowing that he has a girlfriend (after all, he is hot). Hell, I give her kudos for having the balls to do so.

    If it continues after she learns I exist and our relationship is serious then I find it disrespectful and rude.
