I’m usually not one to go all jealous, psycho hose-beast over tiny little things, but for some reason, this thing is just rubbing me the wrong way, and making my Spidey sense tingle a little bit.
I’m on FB this morning, (as usual) and I see where the SO has been tagged in a pic from a mutual friend. (That’s not the issue, keep reading). Of course, I click on over to his page, and see the pics, yada, yada, and lo and behold, the next thing under that (from exactly a week ago) is this message from a former female co-worker: (not SO’s real name, just an example of how she full named him–>) John Jacob Schmidt!!!!! I miss you!!!! WTF?! Here’s the story: Said co-worker is/was dating one of his friends from work, but then she (supposedly?) moved to somewhere upstate, about a month ago. (But she still has the company they all work for listed as her employer, and the city we live in as where she lives. Idk, maybe she got a transfer to a store w/ the same company in her new city, but just hasn’t changed her FB info?)
Point one that bugs me: She full named him. Who does that? Even his family doesn’t do that very often, and most of his/our close friends don’t even know his full name. ??? Point two: She’s apparently quite the looker, (I’ve never met her, and am not FB friends w/ her, so I can’t see her pics) and on one occasion, has been over to the house w/ the guy from work that she was dating. We had plans to cook out burgers, have drinks, etc, but unfortunately I got called in to work. No sense cancelling plans, so they came over anyway. Apparently, she was rocking a mini skirt, and shirt that let a little tummy peek out, and even had my 11 year old son’s undivided attention that evening. And he’s not even hit puberty yet!! Point three: The SO has a weakness for mini-skirts. I was wearing one the night we met.
Let me say that I have no reason to suspect SO of being unfaithful, there have never been any red flags to make me think anything suspicious was going on, EVER. So, this is weird to me. I mean, what hot, female former co-worker knows your full name, and blasts it on FB that she misses you?!? They’ve never hung out except at work, and once or twice when hanging out w/ his buddy M, who she was dating. WHY would a virtual stranger know his middle name? (He doesn’t have it listed on FB, btw)
Am I being irrational, and overreacting? Or am I right to pay attention to my Spidey sense? I’m not thinking that something is necessarily hinkey here, but I feel it at least merits mentioning to the SO. Like, “hey, ummm, what’s up with random hot chick’s FB message? Kinda weird, huh?”
Even if there’s nothing for me to worry about, it still kinda makes me a little bit jealous, and just generally rubs me the wrong way. I feel it’s inappropriate. Am I in the wrong here for feeling like this?
Lemme have it, gals. What do you think?
