You notice your significant other taking an extra-long look at an attractive person walking by. Does it bother you?
No, I'm staring too!
Doesn't bug me a bit. I'm probably checking out more chicks than my bf does. Looking is harmless.
I can't be mad at her. I love and trust too much.
*long* is the key word here. Checking someone put in front of me is fine. Gawking is disrespectful to me. Look quickly; wipe the drool; act like you like me.
It wouldn't really, I would notice but I'd probably make a joke about it.
Does not matter where you get your appetite as long as you eat at home.
What if the person your significant other is eyeballing is of the opposite sex?
Guys... beware... If she (or he) asks if you think this passing stranger is hot.
It is the equivalent of "do these jeans make my butt look big?"
It is a trap!
Who cares. Ain't nobody got nothing that I ain't got more of now, had more of then, or won't have more of later. This simple fact/assertion/belief confounds a man. Pretty soon, he is so confounded, he believes and also asserts this "fact." Viola, the miracle and secret of the everlasting marriage.
Looking ain't touching.
Ego = begin. Dumb auto correct
I'm in agreement with you, Perot4Prez. No use in becoming insecure and jealous over something which could be nothing to. Ego with. Explore first and then make an INFORMED decision.
Not only would it NOT bother me, I would encourage her to share with me what it was that captured her attention.
in other words, are you insecure?
I'm not gonna lie. It'd bother me a little bit but not enough to make me do anything about it.
There's a thing called eye candy, which exists for everybody. As long as the eye candy stays eye candy, it shouldn't matter to either person in a relationship.
Not because of any fear that she would cheat on me or that she doesn't find me attractive. Just that it would eat at me a bit. No justification...
As long as all they do is look at them and go home with you, there isn't a problem.
I remember my mom declaring Ricky Martin is her boyfriend. My dad said to her, "Go ahead! try! You've got no chance!"
It's a matter of respect. There's nothing wrong with finding someone attractive but to disregard the feelings of the person you're with is disrespectful.
Jagger & fake-- agreed. Believe me, I know all about boredom, and greener grass-- different flavor ice cream-- whatever you want to call it. The ? Said an extra long look though and my initial reading of that made it sound disrespectful.
I've had women on both sides of this issue. The difference that night was one went to bed mad at me and the other would tease; the teaser's weren't insecure and were the LTRs.
As long as they are only looking it doesnt matter a whole lot to me
I call bullshit
We both check people out and ask the other's opinion sometimes. We are in a solid marriage and jealousy is nonexistent.
I do the same thing lol. Can't be a hypocrite
Pizza, ice cream! Where have I been...
And pizza is absolutely delicious. It's like the perfect food... But I'm sure you still like ice cream! And your mother may be the best mother in the world... But I'm sure you still love your father! (And if you don't, you still get my point I'm sure.)
Hey look at that. The younger you are, the more insecure you are. Looks like old people sooner or later realize, "Yes, my husband/wife is still a human. And that's okay. In fact, that's pretty desirable. Oh, wait, what?! Daayyyyum look at that ass!!"
When I was younger and more insecure, it would have bothered me; now it wouldnt. Heck, sometimes I tease hubby and point someone out for him to look at. I am lucky... If he does look at other women, he doesn't ever do so in my presence.
380 lady I'm sure u look good and are a great lover but everyone gets bored w the same person over and over
I said it would bother me but not really for the usual reason. It would bother me because I take great care of myself and I really don't see much better to look at.
I don't care, now if they are texting/making plans without me that's another thing
Haha I think a lot of the guys are lying on this.
turns me on
It depends on how strong I perceive our bonding.
And I agree with Fairfax - if he was staring longingly at a friend, I think that would change things.
No, but if it happened all the time and/or he was rude and tried to make a point of it, it would bother me.
quick glance not really. we are 9years apart (I'm 20 he is 29) so it happens. but I don't think he can do better lol. I love him to death and I know he won't leave me
Quick glance = no
breaking his neck to see her = yes
lol most of the guys are definitely lying on this one
No, I point out the hot guys, she points out the hot girls. Works well for us.
A lot of people are lying! Hahaha. A glance doesn't bother me. An extra long look would bug me a bit, to be honest. I know my husband loves me and is attracted to me, and I also know he's human. But he can control himself and not STARE!
It might be our nature, but a real man is faithful even in subtle ways, and when not being watched. Same for a woman.
I'm fine with him looking, but a lingering stare would bother me a bit. The fact that he's with me and can't seem to take his eyes off her? Not so nice.
Like looking at a piece of art, beautiful to look at but not allowed to touch.
We're all human. It's in our nature.
As long as they don't know them :)
Yes. It would be the end of the world for me.
