Strawberry Letter: He is Not Ours…He is Mine
I’ve been friends with my best friend for over 10 years. We are both approaching 30, and are at different places in our lives. I have a live in boyfriend and we have a son together; she is single with no kids… and has been for three years. Although we live in different states, we visit one another throughout the year.
The issue I’m having is that when she visits me, she is extremely flirty with my boyfriend… hugging, sitting on his lap, playful banter, etc. While I don’t see her as a threat and I’m 100% certain that it’s innocent, it still really irritates me. I talked about the issue with my boyfriend, who also notices her behavior. But it’s awkward for him to not accept a friendly hug, or push her off of his lap when she plops down unexpectedly.
At this point I’m not sure what to say to her to avoid hurting her feelings or making her feel bad about it. But if nothing changes it will cause strain on our friendship.
So what can I say to her or what advice can I give my boyfriend to politely disengage her? She is an extremely sensitive person.
