Lately, my girlfriend has been getting angry at me for tiny, petty things, like not replying fast enough, and then refusing to talk to me for hours over such meaningless squabbles. Anyway, she’s also been hanging out with this guy whom I’m pretty sure fancies her quite a lot lately, in fact, until very early hours this weekend. Both Friday and Saturday night she promised to come see me after, but bailed both times. They’re friends because they’re both vegan, which is another thing she often criticises me for, and sometimes threatens to leave me because of.
I’m normally cool about all this, cos, you know, it’s part of being in a relationship (right?) and you need to be patient, but, just now, this guy posted a pic of just him and her together in a toilet mirror (?!) with the caption “Fav <3”, and it makes me very uncomfortable he’s putting hearts, with pictures of just him and her.
Maybe this is just my impulses and I’ll get over it, but is this a valid reason to be annoyed?
