Some guys go out of their way to try and make their girl jealous. This can happen for a number of reasons. In some cases the guy is literally starving for attention and wants to get a reaction, and in other situations he simply likes to play games. This type of conduct is painful if it happens often, but the idiocy does not have to continue. Try these methods to stop a guy from playing childish games, and put an end to hurt feelings caused by blatant flirting, inappropriate comments, and other types of bad behavior. Of course not every guy resorts to playing mind games, but when it is clear that a guy purposely tries to make a girl jealous, he might just get more than he bargained for.
Do Not React at All
When a guy is making comments about other women or deliberately flirts in front of his girl in an attempt to make her jealous, chances are he is looking for attention – absolutely any kind of attention. He wants attention from the other woman since this will add fuel to the fire he started, but his main goal is to gain a reaction from his jealous girl. To some guys a reaction is indicative of love, but in any case, purposely creating feelings of jealousy is an awful way to gain the attention of another human being.
A girl should not immediately react when a guy takes the low road and makes comments about another girl in an attempt to make her jealous. She should not instantaneously react when he blatantly flirts in her presence. If she wants to continue the relationship, she should initially ignore this childish behavior and notice her guy in positive ways when he is not behaving badly. He might just want a little love and attention but happened to take the wrong approach by trying to make her jealous. This does not automatically make him a pig. Girls play these games too!
Make a Joke of It
When a guy tries to make a girl jealous and wants a reaction, she can try to turn his feeble attempt into a joke. She should not give him the response he wants. Chances are he will not try this again anytime soon if his bad behavior is turned into a comedy. When he mentions a hot girl on television or out in public, she should say something funny or clever instead of becoming jealous or angry. If he is not really the pig he has made himself out to be, chances are he will not bother making inappropriate comments in the future in an attempt to make his girl jealous.
Talk About It
If a guy continually tries to make a girl jealous, the relationship could be in trouble, depending upon the situation. If he is not serious, the girl probably has nothing to worry about, but how does she really know? What might seem trivial and somewhat funny might be truer than she initially thought. If a guy flirts with a girl in front of his sweetheart just to make her jealous, and if ignoring the situation does not work, it is time for a heart-to-heart talk. He might not realize the damage he is causing.
A guy that would continually try to make his girl jealous on purpose does not have her best interest or her feelings in mind. Her confidence will eventually be shattered, and she will not be happy. How could she truly be happy when her guy continuously tries to make her jealous with off-color comments about other women and blatant stares. If this type of behavior does not cease, she will lose trust in her guy. After all, if this is how he behaves when they are together, imagine the type of behavior he will demonstrate when they are apart. If she has any self-esteem at all, she will finally realize this, and she might eventually walk away.
