… he’s kind of a public figure. And sometimes he’s so close with them, it looks like he’s about to kiss them. Their faces squeezed right up against each other. A woman tucked right under his chin.
I get hurt –
I wish he wouldn’t do this –
I’d love to hear other people’s thoughts.
Ugh. He wasn’t such a public figure when we began

The ONLY thing you can do is voice your concerns with your SO & see what his reaction/action is to this.
I would also be ensuring I reiterate to myself that public figures get attention – it takes the PERSON not to act on that attention.
If you trust your SO I would be making sure not to be upset with HIM, but just uncomfortable at the situation.
But if you’re uncomfortable, that’s how you feel, he should respect those feelings and try to at least negate those situations by pulling himself away, but I imagine he probably doesn’t have much of a choice of how the ‘fans’ approach him/pose with him in a photo.
Remember he is with you, for a reason.

uhhhh my Fiance keeps his own loved ones at a physical arms length (besides me, obvs), let alone strangers.
This seems a bit odd. I would definitely be voicing my concerns…

No, and I don’t think it’s particularly normal or respectful.
You can be close to someone and pose for a nice photo without looking like you’re about to kiss.

If he’s a public figure then I can understand people wanting photos/ to be quite close to him BUT this should not take priority over your feelings!
Have you told him how it makes you feel?
Post # 6
Well no he doesn’t but then I can’t think of a single instance in the last 2 years where he has had his photo taken with another woman but then again he is not a public figure. It rather depends on the type of public figure I guess….
It all sounds quite unusual and a rather specific problem!

I think to give good advice I need to know what your husband does for a living, public figure is kind of broad.
Like a Mayor I can’t see tucking women under his chin in photos. A hot actor meeting fans? I can see an actor selling the idea of himself being attainable to women if that was the case.
ETA: Is it Joe Biden? I love Joe Biden.

NO NO NO!!! Just because he is a public figure does not give him a free pass to get cheecky cheecky with people. Sorry but it’s an excuse and I think he likes it. You see alot of stars that don’t get that close with their fan’s and I am sure he isn’t a star. He is stepping over the boundries. I think it’s very disrespecful to you and your marriage.

I’ve coached my husband in the art of two people/group selfies. And he’s very literal. So, I think when he takes a pic without me in it, or next to another woman, with me in it, he just goes to what he knows (head up, neck out, chin down ahhahaha). Love that man!!!

slomotion : Joe Biden was my first thought too! 😉
OP, I think we need more information. What kind of public figure is he? How often is he taking photos with random people? Have you talked to him at all about this?

Is he Joe Biden?
This is so odd. How often is he asked for photographs? Is this a daily thing? How prominent is he really?
Post # 12
I have a different perspective because my bf is also prominent and a musician.
It is literally my bf’s job to keep his fans feeling attention and feeling loved. I have zero insecurities when i see women posing with him, because at the end of the day, he’s going home with me and I trust him completely. Sure, it may seem odd for those not in the public eye, but remember that his paycheck comes from having fans.

More of a “local” celebrity. Went through a couple of round on some TV Talent shows, but thats about it.

I can’t say I’ve ever cared how close he gets to someone in a picture? There are pictures of him carrying other women (and men), women attempting to carry him, hugs, etc. it’s never bothered me. Maybe because we met doing something that requires a lot of physical contact that most might consider invasive? I don’t know. It’s not like he’s trying to kiss them or something like that. Not all physical contact is sexual.
