Re: The Flirty Neighbor
Be honest with your husband and have a conversation about your feelings and boundaries.
And then watch your borders carefully.
There's not reason to completely shun another human being because of one interaction ASSUMING it was innocent. BUT her behavior and his reaction COULD be the seed to something bad.
There's too much trying to figure out what's going on and not enough actual talking.
I'd hope if you said to your husband. "I'm glad so&so is opening the daycare, it's always great to know the person who's caring for your child, but I have to be honest. I wasn't 100% comfortable with the interaction the other day. I felt like she was being a little too touchy feely for my comfort level. At first I was just writing it off, but even "son" made a comment about how the conversation between you two seemed a little more attentive than usual. So I'm not feeling totally comfortable with it. Can we establish some boundaries with "Neighbor" so I feel a little more confident with our relationship with her?"
If you notice, you're owning the issue. This isn't about what he did wrong or how she acted, it's all about how you feel and how you interpreted the interaction. Now his first response will be to downplay it and say its silly or something along those lines. This is where you can assert yourself AND make your husband feel loved and wanted (two big wins).
"I know, I know but still..you're my man and I'm not going to let any other woman get a piece of my action. So can you help me with this one?" Then grab his ass as he walks away or something on those lines. PS I bet he listens more intently to you the rest of that day.
The more posts I read.
The more I love my wife!
