My boyfriend always wants to talk to this girl I'm friends with. I usually don't mind him talking to other girls, but he used to like this one. He tells me it doesn't mean anything, but I get so upset when he talks to her, and he still does it. What does that mean?
His Answer: “I have no doubt your boyfriend really likes you, but since he used to like her, he probably still has some feelings for her,” spills Jory P., 17. “He likes you, but he doesn’t want to lose his friendship with her. He isn’t talking to her to upset you or make you jealous—he just may find her fun or easier to talk to about certain things.”
Decoded: You’re still his number one, but he’s still wants her in his life. Sure, it might not mean anything. But it can be tricky to tell if he likes likes her. Most likely, he doesn’t have any romantic feelings for the girl, but wants to stay friends—and only friends.
Your Move: Don’t jump to any conclusions. It could very well be a harmless friendship between the two pals. Acting jealous or overbearing would only push him away. But if he’s acting a li’l too friendly and spending more time with her than you, it’s time to speak up. If he doesn’t get it and continues to cross that line, find someone else.
