AIBU? Possibly.

We had all this once before. DP being a bit over friendly with women he doesn't know adding him on FB. Nothing untoward, just typical ego boosting crap for a middle age man!!

Anyhow, there is a woman who added him because she knows friends of ours. She didn't add me though (hadn't thought of that til now!) She bombarded him with hugs and kisses and best friends crap from various applications. Their chats are just friendly but very 'babe' 'hun' 'xxxxx' and dp doesn't type like that whatsoever until it's her.
I'm a little peeved as his partner and the mother of our children to say the least!

I kicked off a little tonight and asked him to leave his FB page on if he had nothing to hide (he's out tonight) and he did - very reluctantly. This is the conversation they had tonight: (it's her b'day today)

life begins today !!!!!! lol how you doing!!

dying! lol


just about to go into pool! wanna join me? haha

i see u beat me to it! haha

early bird and all that!!!!!! lol

hev's still not happy with us!! she thinks we'er over friendly for just knowing each other on FB???!!

oh i'm sorry martin. i dunno wot to say. its not like we're doing or saying anything wrong! i think she has a serious jealousy problem and its way out of hand. we're not doing anything wrong!!!!!

hope that doesnt offend u....wot i said about hev.

i just have trouble ubderstanding her problem with me. thats all


dont shout at me!!! lol

i'm on ur side! haha

sorry its causing u problems tho xx

but i'm a bloke and understanding woman isn't my best subject!!! lol

we are very difficult to work out.....i'll give u that! but then again, so r some men! lol

i don't know what to do?? it's all a little OTT i think, but it's all just harmless fun me and you, she thinks there is more to it? ithink??!!

well obviously ...she keeps deleting me! has she got ur password?

have u tried telling her theres nothing going on?

yes, but that not worked very well!!!! lol

oh dear! trouble is, once us women get something stuck in our heads, its hard to shift it! wot do u want to do? i darent add u again if she deletes me. u'll have to add me. but if u wanna leave it, i'll understand xx

i've changed my password!! so we will have to ride out the storm!! lol

So! Am I?

OMG, this is taking the piss. I'd be so angry with both of them tbh.

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Wed 29-Oct-08 20:35:01

I think you're right its ego boosting male crap, but he shouldn't be slagging you off to someone he barely knows hmm Loyalty and all that. Having female friends is one thing, flirting online with someone you barely know comes under the heading of 'unnecessary'.

Tell him to grow up.

Uh oh. I'm so sorry to hear that. I think you have a problem. First of all they are each sort of seeing where they stand with one another. Personally I'd say it could be the start of something. I'm so sorry if that upsets you.

He shouldn't be talking about you to her or letting her slag you off and they shouldn't be taking 'sides'. You and him are the team against the rest of the world.

All relationships go through ups and downs though, as you'll know.

if he has nothing to hide why change his password? i would be sooooooooo angry

If she was someone he knew well in rl first then I would understand him being pissed off for you being jealous always assuming that there was nothing going on AND that there isn't a history of him being unfaithful / untrustworthy.

However she is a friend of a friend and he met her on FB yet he is prioritising his friendship / relationship with her over his with his wife?!?!?! angry

No - that is f*cking out of order and disrespectful to you

i would be pissed off at both of them, they are egging each other on

they should be making efforts to assure you there is nothing going on if they want to keep talking

not joking about it and changing passwords

bubblerock Wed 29-Oct-08 20:37:36

I would hate my DH/DP to talk about me like that with another woman - he's obviously been careful about what he's saying especially if he's now changing his password! I would be furious and get rid if I didn't trust him. sad

OK - will venture to give a different view!

I think it's stupid, but not grounds for divorce/unforgivable. It's also clear from the conversation that nothing more than banter seems to be going on.

Some people (and not just men) have different types of friendship with different people - not sexual but yes, maybe flirty/chatty/friendly - we're all different and relate to each other differently.

And some people also do that really annoying hun/xxx nonsense - but that's a style thing (and so not MN....) and doesn't mean anything more than chat is going on.

BananaSkin Wed 29-Oct-08 20:37:39

I'd be very angry. Not just for the over-familiarity, but discussing you like that.

I'd also struggle to take my DH seriously again if he used 'lol' after every sentance! lol

ShowOfHands Wed 29-Oct-08 20:37:46

I'd be extremely cross. How dare either of them make vague generalisations about you or discuss you at all for that matter.

And what's all this lol crap? Neither of them are particularly funny. What are they laughing at lol.
