Hi. I feel really uncomfortable. I was at a party with my girlfriend and there was guy sat near us. He started talking to my girlfriend and I noticed how involved she was when talking with him, laughing at the things he said. I find it hard to make decent conversation and I wished she was more responsive with me.
He said he was an idiot, and she was like no, no you're not. He invited her out to a night out with his friends, she was really excited about it. I felt really insecure, that I had to 'man up' and try and impress her back but my conversational skills aren't as good. I felt really jealous and humiliated that she was being chatted up in front of me.
We've only been out 8 times, and we've gone the whole way. I've been cheated on before with a different girl.
I am in such a lose-lose situation. If I bring it up and say I was uncomfortable with this, she will think I'm jealous over something she may find trivial. I will give her the power. But if I let stuff like this happen, then I could get walked over and cement a beta-type personality
