So far I have encountered two schools of thought when it comes to jealousy and handling a potential threat to your relationship in the form of another woman.
The first is what I like to call the “Goodluck To Her” way of thinking. Generally ladies who react like this are very comfortable in who they are, and are very confident in their relationship. They see someone pursuing their partner as a compliment, and let her deal with it, without getting involved or causing a fuss.
The second way of thinking is one I like to call the “Throw Down.” A lady who reacts in this way is usually a bit of a fire cracker, who does not take kindly to someone threatening or disrespecting her or her relationship. She feels it would be more effective to deal with the problem to ensure this unwanted pursuer knows who she is messing with.
I had a particular incident a couple of weeks ago where an old… we will call her…a “booty call” approached my gf and asked her to come home. Of course her response was, “I have a girlfriend” to which Miss Cant Take A Hint then said, “She doesn’t have to know”, and then continued trying to force the reminiscence of their past dalliances, as some form of temptation.
Now, when I was confronted with this situation my initial reaction was the throw down. I can blame that on being both a Sagittarius and Italian… Now, I can deal with someone hitting on my gf, she’s a babe, but when it continues throughout the night, even after she has been told she is in a relationship, I think that is worthy of considering a throw down. At least in the heat of the moment anyway.
I held my tongue though, I left it a couple of hours and began to feel sorry for this girl. Which is when I started to take on the “Goodluck To Her”, approach. This poor girl has just gone through the break up of yet another short-term relationship, and more than likely has wanted my gf for a long time, and has just had to deal with being turned down by the same person three times in one night.
I considered suggesting my gf take her on a pity date, but then decided, I’m not that nice.
