I have been going out with my boyfriend for almost two months now, but it seems like he constantly is flirting with other people and he does it when I am standing right there. My friends tell me that I should be worried, but I'm not sure if I should be, because it doesn't really bother me. I'm sorry if I confused you, but what I am basically asking is if I should be concerned about this. Thanks

when you get a chance to talk to him in private, tell him his flirting makes you uneasy. assure him you don't mind him having female friends, but he still needs to be considerate of your feelings. talk to him in person, it's harder for him to avoid you that way. and phrase your words wisely because if it comes out wrong,you wind up sounding really possessive, and that doesn't get you anywhere. so write it out if you have you and memorize your speech to him if need be.

That seems pretty low of your boyfriend to be flirting with other girls, let alone right in front of you.
The only way he'll ever know is if you tell him. So get movin', honey!
Gumdrop had some really wise words there: make sure your words come out right or you might sound controlling! If he doesn't stop flirting, I think it's about time you let him see how it feels to be hurt and give him the goodbye. Good luck, sweetheart.
