Have you ever been in an uncomfortable situation where someone in your partner’s life, like their friend or sibling, showed an interest in you? It’s hard to know what to do in that situation, as while you don’t want unwanted flirting or advances, you don’t want to cause drama. 

One woman recently had to confront her husband’s friend, who’s been inappropriately flirting with her for quite some time.

She and her husband, John, are in their early 30s and are madly in love. They’ve been together for five years and support each other strongly. Unfortunately, something’s been jeopardizing her relationship with John, and it’s the behavior of his college buddy, Mark. 

“Mark has always been a part of our lives,” she said.

“He’s charming, funny, and generally a good guy, but recently, his behavior towards me has made me uncomfortable. It started with small comments about my appearance, which I brushed off as harmless compliments. But over time, his comments have become more frequent and suggestive.”

Mark has become more and more obvious with his crush on her and has even started talking about her appearance in front of others. For instance, at a recent dinner table, he said in front of everyone how lucky John was to have such a beautiful wife. While John laughed it off, she felt uncomfortable.

Then, Mark began reaching out to her privately. He recently texted her in the middle of the night to compliment her on a picture she posted on social media. It felt inappropriate and too personal.

Then, things really came to a head at a recent barbecue when Mark became a little too reckless.

“We went to a barbecue at Mark’s place [and] after a few drinks, Mark started flirting with me openly, trying to put his arm around me while John was talking to other guests,” she recalled.
