“How dare you stare at another woman when I’m seated right next to you?” shouted a friend at her man on a night out. “Umm, should I wait for you to leave and stare at her then?” the man answered.
It’s really no secret that we all encounter other people we find attractive – and are therefore tempted to look. Hell, if Ryan Reynolds walked passed me and my ‘sweet potato’, I would not only stare but literally follow him around like a love sick puppy, till his guards have me arrested for harassment.
Back to reality, it is only natural to look at someone who appeals to you, although some men take this a little too far. They ogle and drool and even start looking at their own partners, as if wondering if they were created by some seriously bored and malicious god!
However, if it is just a simple look, surely that does not mean a guy is unfaithful. If he constantly does this, even where unnecessary (truthfully, some people make you feel more confident about yourself), you have a real problem on your hands.
While admiring God’s creation, there are ways to go about it. On your own, hey, knock yourself out but in the company of your partner, seriously? Be as discreet as possible – demanding that you do not look at all might be a little too much to ask! Women feel insecure very easily, one glance at another woman and she will assume her face just got swapped with a troll’s!
If you have a partner with a wandering eye and are tired of it, then it is time for communication, although I would recommend beating the crap out of him! Just kidding. There is no shame in letting him know you are hurt, after all, relationships are about being open and honest with each other.
If he truly cares, there will be some changes, if he could care less about your feelings after pouring your heart out then decide just how willing you are to put up with it.
