Resolved Question:

my boyfriend had a surprise birthday party for me and at the party he met several of my friends that he did not previously know. The next day I ran into one of the people who were at the party and she says that he made a strange comment to her about how he is attracted to me because I have such attractive friends. When I asked him what his intent was he said she's crazy and I never said anything like that. I said that you have really nice friends and it means alot for me to be a part of it. W ehave had some trust issues in the past and this makes me wonder was she subtely trying to tell me something about my boyfriend or it is my imagination?

Hi there ,


Welcome to Just answer !


Well, i feel , although there might have been trust issues between the two of you in the past , but in this particular case that you are referring to , i believe , that your boyfriend was perhaps complimenting your female friend , without any ulterior motives driving him to do that . And since he was the host of the party where in he had the onus to make your friends comfortable and at ease with the surroundings , so he must have been a bit more flambouyant than his usual self and was enjoying himself by interacting with new faces , i do not think , there is any need for you to doubt his intentions , all that your friend told you should not be dwelled any further ,as it was your friend's perception , and you have no control over how and why people percieve things differently , when the truth is absolutely different and simple.


So, please do not mention this again with your boyfriend , and thank him for the lovely party that he had thrown for you , and the fact that you have already discussed what your friend told , would probably remind him your importance in life and that he should not stray , if at all that thought has ever crossed his mind .


So, no need to worry , just carry on with your life with him , and enjoy the moments .


I hope this helps..


I wish you all the best..
