My guy best friend is jealous
He'll say he's just looking out for you, but really he doesn't want you seeing anyone else! Guys don't usually text back and forth the way women do, so if he's sending you a text in the middle of the day to ask how your day is going… chances are he's into you. Play fighting, pulling you in for a hug when he's teasing you, they're all signs he's finding any excuse to have you closer to him. When your mum used to say boys tease you because when they like you, she wasn't kidding! Guys often like to tease someone they like and whilst it might be annoying for us especially when they take it too far , it's often their way of getting your attention.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: My Best Friend Is Dating My Crush And I Am So jealous

Why Do Guy Friends Get Jealous?
Even though this was made known to him before the relationship got intense now he feels uncomfortable with the third party in the relationship. The girl is very close to the guy to the extent that she is welcome to pass the night at the guys home where he lives with his parents and folks.
My guy is worried, I need advice on how to advice him. Well, he'll need to deal with his jealousy! He needs to realise that his girlfriend had a life before he met her, and is entitled to have friends of either sex. At least, she was upfront with him, before they got serious. As for the girl, I hope she doesn't feed your mate's insecurity by giving up her best friend, that'll be wrong.
You have every single rite to be jealous. I would be. Just make it known to her how u feel and tell he to be sensitive regarding his issue when u are around. If the shoe was on the other foot, she would do the same.
Siena Well, he'll need to deal with his jealousy! My friend had a similar issue about his girl having a too close male friend who she said is a very good friend. Now my friend has come accross emails that raise questions read and u will understand. Please, post the link to the thread about your friend.
Leave the best friend alone. Sooner or later you're going to dump her and she will need someone to comfort her. Seun nawa for u ooo. My few times on nairaland have revealed that Seun's replies are often S. Either to amuse nairalanders or to raise some heat! When you are in love with someone, jealously comes naturally. You do not want anyone to be as close to your love than you are, for after all, you two are suppose to share a special bond. It is very hard for a man to accept that a woman is friends with another man.
They automatically think that there is more going on between them sex --even when it is not. Prior to me marrying my husband, I let him know about the three male friends that I am close with.
When I got married, one male friend cut back his visits altogether, and the other one comes by every other week, and the third one I see once or twice a month. They automatically cut back their visits even with my still waiting on my husband to join me from Nigeria. It is as if they knew, as a man, that they would not want any man continually coming around if I were their woman or wife , so they withdrew. But everyone does not share their views.
Your friend's girlfriend should realize that she needs to make her man 1 now not him. If he does not act as though he understands that, she should relay that to her best friend.
Her man now should become her best friend, and the best friend should "rightfully" settle for second place. Life changes and relationships do too.
Patricia Daboh Hmn, Right I'd relay your advise. He does not need to be jealous if he can trust her. Friends have their place and lovers have theirs, the two have different roles to play in ones life.
I had a number of very close male friends and we are still friends except for the distance. Let him deal with jealousy and understand that one can have friend from either sex at least he was told from the onset.
Fikzy: Dear All, My friend has a challenge with his girlfriend because her best friend is a guy. My 2 closest friends were both females.
Once I found the person I was going to marry, she never had to ask me to cut-ff or reduce the friendships, I did so voluntarily. Your mission is a serious releationship and ultimately marriage is to create an atmosphere of intimacy and trust and nobody should come between you. How would a man feel if he wants to spend time with his girl only to have her say she made plans with her best friend who happens to be a guy. He calls her in the morning and she spent the night in the guy's house If she doesn't realize that her boyfriend should be her new best friend, she is clearly lacking wisdom.
Beauty is wasted on an indiscreet woman. It's like gold in the mouth of a pig. Oh please. Friendship is worth much more than sexual relationships that almost always end in heartbreak.
So many sick people here , and what the Bleep does that have to do with me, why not try a party, perhaps that would solve your freaking jealousy. A lot of us don't like facing reality. The guy either likes the babe for sex or vice versa and the right opportunity has not come.
Just wait and see. There's nothing like trust when it involves 2 Ps! That was how my wife told me how close she is to one of her male cousins until they had opportunity to pass the night at a friend's place after a wedding. I saw the emails he was sending to her box about his intentions.
I deleted everything before she could see them. Why would somebody has the intention of sleeping with his or her cousin. Isn't that incest? For a girl i really love and could marry, i wouldn't allow her get too close to a male friend like that.
Regardless of whether they were already friend before me. Now that he is her life as lovers, she wouldn't need that guy as that close of a friend anymore.
FKseun: A lot of us don't like facing reality. Whenever I say this, some people will tell me I'm a misogynist, I don't believe in love and trust, etc. When shit happens they will then wonder what went wrong. I know these people will want to cut my throat but it's the friggin truth.
FKseun i agree with you on the issue there is hardly nothing as good friends when it comes to the opposite sex, talking from experience. Fikzy; where has ur friend's trust gone 2? It's the one that you intend to live the rest of your life with that you give priority. How would she feel if she's serious about a guy and way into their relationship a female "best friend" of her guy keeps a prominent role? Male-Female best friend relationships are deceitful for the most part, someone wants to shag the other, but just can't admit it.
Either that or it creates undue tension and friction in a relationship - totally not worth the trouble. Stick to best friends of the same sex, avoid the unnecessary heartache. Read from www. And by the way. Its the internet mate - don't be shy to discuss your problems, we don't know you from Adam and will probably never know you Tell her you are not comfortable with it and deal with the issue now. I encountered a similar situation, though it wasn't 'best friend', but it was 'good friend'.
You should tell us more because he can't just be jealous all of a sudden. Maybe they are spending so much time without him and he feels left out or maybe he's just plain jealous for the sake of it.
I have tons of friends who are guys and my best friend is indeed a guy. If a guy doesn't feel comfortable around his girl's bestfriend - they should not get together in the first place. How've you been girl?
I've just been there struggling with school and i hope you're doing okay o! I do agree to some extent with the boy, seriousness plays a big factor. All the women saying "get over it", lets see how u get over it when your boyfriend starts sleeping over at his "best friends" house who just happens to be female. Its only a matter of when.
