Recently I've noticed my boyfriend looking at other girls, when we're walking, eating dinner, anywhere. I know when a pretty girl walks by, even from a distance he will look. If she's about to walk by, I literally just stare at him because I know he's going to look. EVEN WHEN IM LOOKING AT HIM. Anyway, he didn't always do this. In the beginning before we started dating, he NEVER looked at other girls. and I didn't mind if he did or not because I didn't like him like he liked me yet. I started to appreciate it though, how he didn't seem to even notice other pretty girls. His attention was always on me, always looking and smiling and talking to me. He noticed all these little things about me, and said it was because he likes me so freakin much. We've been dating for a while now and we love each other. He has said I'm beautiful and he loves me blah blah, but now he looks at other girls. And it hurts! I hate reading how guys are just guys, its natural, accept it. I can't, its like EYE CHEATING and it HURTS. It's not fair I'm told this pain will never go away, I must accept it for the rest of my life. It hurts because like I said this didn't always happen. I've read about the coolidge effect, and it hurts when I hear guys say "looking at the same stuff gets boring", blah blah. Am I supposed to be ok with the fact that the person I LOVE more than anything may be slowly losing interest? And no, I don't look at other guys. I look at attractive guys like I do anyone else, but guys are visual and will LOOK at girls. I hate feeling this jealousy, it's getting worse every time. now I get jealous when he hangs out with his girl friends or even talks to other girls. Should I say something or ignore it? Should I try to make HIM jealous? It's not like I can start over and recapture his interest by playing hard to get. Idk what to doo. Hate this feeling!!!
