Your guy’s Facebook friend leaves him a comment like, “Hey, where have you been? ;)” and you feel that she’s being flirty. You then envision the sender as a temptress who wants to rub on your partner. Sending the message at all is crossing a boundary, but to add a winky face? Oh hell no!
Thing is if your man is fine, women will look, and some may even try to touch. Social media makes it that much easier for women to flirt with a man – including your man.
Here are ways to deal when women virtually flirt with your guy.
Learn to trust your partner to handle the situation. Having confidence and trusting your partner usually avoids any confrontations about their social media etiquette.
Don’t let jealousy take over. At first you may want to reply with a long psycho essay detailing how you will rip her head off. This is where we go wrong. Getting angry, upset, or stooping to the other woman’s level only shows weakness. Taking the matter into your own hands sends the message that you don’t trust or think that your partner can handle the situation without your influence.
Do not blow up in your partners face and say things you may regret. Remember, he received the message, it isn’t necessarily his fault.
Allow your man to reply. If another woman sends your man a flirty message, not letting him respond can show passiveness. If he just ignores it, she may keep messaging him flirty emojis. Trust that your man will reply in a way that gets the message across: he is not interested and does not want to be contacted.
If she’s relentless, address her. Not through your mans social media pages, but your owns. You don’t have to be angry or rude to show you are serious. Just remind her she’s embarrassing herself because at the end of the day your man is exactly that, yours.
Face it, other women are going to try and come at your man from all directions, especially with the salience of social media. Don’t let another woman put any pressure on your relationship. That could be exactly what she wants. If your relationship is healthy and he really loves you, he will reply accordingly.
