I've noticed this in past relationships. Your guy has been seeing you and another woman at the same time. The other woman hates you and tries to do you either physical or emotional damage. Or calls you bad names. You know which ones I mean. Where is the logic in this? The guy who's really responsible for the mess is sitting back enjoying two women (or more?) fight over him. I know my first reaction is to resent the other woman, but I quickly realize that doesn't make sense. Most women I know have working brains ... why are they unable to place responsibility where it belongs? FlowerLady ... The man had a commitment to you, the other woman owes you nothing. I don't understand why everyone doesn't see this.
Capricorn, your reasoning does not make sense. Jealousy is an emotion. Are you saying that women are so mindless that they cannot have control over their emotions? And no I'm not one of those other women. I don't attack other women over a guy. I was admitting to an initial, automatic reaction that is quickly overridden by good sense. Jane, that could be the case sometimes. But I don't think it is all the time. Originata ... I think you're right to a certain extent. But it's still a little different. In the reverse situation the woman will be blamed. Maybe the blame will be shared, but the woman will definitely be held responsible. Whereas when the man has multiple partners and the women go after each other, the man may come out of it completely unscathed. Capricorn, everything I said to you was in reply to the first 4 lines of your response. With your edit you have contridicted yourself. In the first part of your original answer you said women attack simply because they're jealous. In your edit you said that you wouldn't react that way if you were jealous. Aren't you a woman? LOL Tracey ... Capricorn ... You never get jealous? Sorry, but I don't believe you. Everybody gets jealous sometimes. It's just that some people handle it better than others.
