I hate jealousy in all it's forms. I try not to be jealous of other people and I hate it when it has been directed at me, not that I have anything much in my life to be jealous about anyway!
The other night I got quite narked. I'd arranged to meet up with a friend in town and I'd turned up about 30 minutes early and so spent the time just having a drink and waiting for her to turn up.
The minute I walked in to this bar, a girl who was stood with her boyfriend/partner/husband shot me a really dirty look. Her boyfriend/partner/husband smiled at me and I smiled back out of politeness.
For the rest of the time they were there she spent her time giving me dirty looks and her arm clamped around her boyfriend's/partner's/husband's waist. It also looked like she was giving him grief and she was definitely shooting me filthy looks on a semi-regular basis.
All I had done was return his smile. I hadn't blatantly come on to him or flirted with him or walked up to him and planted my lips on his face, I'd just smiled at him.
Fair play to this girl if she thinks her man is so desirable that no woman within 20 feet of him can resist throwing themselves at him but please, don't give death stares to me because of it.
Her arm around his waist was a pure 'ownership' signal, it wasn't resting there, it was clamped there and there is no way I'd have the gall to behave like that with anyone I was seeing. You don't have 'ownership' of someone just because you are romantically involved with them.
I don't understand women like this at all. I think the new man is gorgeous but I'm not so stupid as to assume that every woman who claps eyes on him will think the same! And if they do, they can fill their boots by looking, just don't touch. ;o)
This girl seemed to be convinced I was out to 'steal' her man. It didn't seem to occur to her that just because she found him stunning, that I automatically would too. I actually wouldn't touch him with someone else's bargepole.
Her body language said it all, it was pure 'stay back, he's mine'. If a man behaved like that with me, you would not see my arse for dust!
If I had been in a truly evil mood I would have blown a kiss to this guy on my way out of the door but I didn't think he was worth getting bitch-slapped for...
If I was some stunner with legs up to my armpits then I could maybe understand it. But I'm not. Far from it.
