What Should You Do When Your Partner’s Friend Gets Flirty With You?
There are so many flirting dilemas that you will have to negotiate throughout your life time. And truth be told, you are not going to get them all right, in fact you’re probably going to make a lot of mistakes throughout your life time. But, it will be a learning experience and you will know what to do, or what not to do, next time round.
But, it is always nice when someone steps in and stops you from making a terrible error that can affect your relationship or romantic success. The flirting dilema we are tackling is what to do about your partner’s flirty ftiend – and no the answer is not to sleep with them and hope that no one finds out…cheaters never prosper.
The biggest issue that arises is whether or not you should tell your partner that their friend has been acting overly familiar with you. You of course run the risk of your partner not believing you, especially if their friend denies it. Plus you may end up detroying a friendship that has lasted way longer than your relationship, which may eventually lead to feelings of resentment.
As hard as it may be, this dilema requires action, and pretty swift action at that. Regardless of whether you like the attention or not, you cannot let it continue – this is not a radom person flirting with you on your commute to work. This is a friend of your partner, someone he or she probably trusts and if you let it go on, you are certainly playing with fire.
Take the friend to one side at the earliest opportunity and let them calmly but sternly that you dont appreciate them flirting with you and that your partner would certainly not like it either if they were to witness it. Make it clear that you are more than willing to be friends with them for your partner’s sake, but the flirting can’t continue.
Now you have to decide whether or not you should tell your partner. There is a very good chance that when you have a chat with the friend that it will be the end of it. But, there is the slim chance that the friend will feel annoyed at your rejection and go to you partner with a made up story that it was you flirting with them or something else. So to be safe, you really should tell your partner that their friend has been overly friendly with you and you thought it would be best to tell them before they found out from someone else.
Make sure your partner knows that you have made your discomfort clear to their friend and that you have no romantic intentions towards anyone but them. You will have done all the right things so chances are good that you will make it through this dilema unscathed, however, it may still blow up in your face, because life sometimes sucks.
