I hate the way my roommate dresses around my boyfriend


Share post:

QI’ve noticed that my roommate shows a lot more skin than she usually does when my boyfriend comes over. Not only that she’s gets very flirty with him and is always asking his opinion on what guys like. One example is she’ll tell him she’s doing a lot of squats to try to make her butt bigger and ask him if guys really like girls with big butts. And she’s even asked his opinion on whether or not she’d look better with bigger boobs. Is it petty that I find it annoying and want to tell her not to talk to my boyfriend when he comes over?

A – We’re not relationship experts so we can only give you our unprofessional opinion.

It’s not petty that you find your roommate’s behavior annoying; but it does kind of indicate a little bit of insecurity on your part. Your roommate’s behavior indicates insecurity on her part as well. And of course your boyfriend gets to sit back and enjoy your roommate flirting with him and you being jealous about it.

You could go ahead and tell your roommate not to talk to your boyfriend when he comes over; but that will only create friction between the two of you. And after your boyfriend leaves and goes home, you still have to live under the same roof with each other.

We agree with you that your roommate is crossing the line. Dressing more sexily for your boyfriend’s visits than she dresses ordinarily is a pretty transparent ploy. But it’s not necessarily a ploy that has anything to do with you and your boyfriend. Some women are like that. It could be any random man who comes over. Maybe they know the maintenance men are coming to fix the leaking faucet. They put on a low-cut top, short shorts and high heels. They do it because they like to show off. They want every guy to notice them. Sometimes it doesn’t even have anything to do with wanting to show off and wanting every guy to notice them. They’re just so insecure about their femininity and sex appeal that they feel like they have to dress a certain way when men are around to hide their ordinary truth.

None of that is your problem of course. You’ve got your own insecurities to deal with and can’t be bothered trying to figure out why your roommate does what she does. You just want her to stop.

Our recommendation: talk to her woman to woman. We know–that’s not how it’s usually done. Usually you bring out the claws and the fangs and get to ripping that bitch’s face off. But we think maybe you should just try talking to her about it. Tell her what you’ve noticed about how she dresses when your boyfriend comes over. Tell her how you feel about the conversations she has with your boyfriend. If she chooses to go the catty route, then you can warn not to talk to your boyfriend when he comes over. But your warning might not stop her if she’s more on the vindictive side.

Another alternative is to stay in your room with your boyfriend when he comes over. Eventually she should get the message that she’s not invited to share in the time you and he spend together when he comes over.

    Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
