Dear Harper: Flirtatious & Friendly

Arts & Entertainment

Dear Harper,

My boyfriend has become really jealous whenever I hang out with my best friend who happens to be a male. What can I do to make him see me hanging out with my best friend isn’t a big deal?


Flirtatious & Friendly


Dear Flirtatious & Friendly,

If you want him to stop being jealous of you for just hanging out with a guy, you need to make the situation worse so it no longer seems like such a big deal to him. Really show him how horrible things could be! When you go out with your boyfriend, be sure to be as flirtatious as possible with the guys around you. Do this for about a week. Then you’ll want to step it up a notch. Begin flirting with all of his hot friends, guys and girls included. Make him realize that other guys are really the least of his problems. After theĀ predicamentĀ has reached its screaming climax, he will no longer mind you just hanging out with your bestie as he will find relief that you are not flirting with your friend.

Luck and love,
