senario: at dinner, in a restaurant last evening, my husband and i are having a good time, alone, without the kids, eating talking conversing..the norms...(we celebrated our 7mo wedding anniversary...second marriage for both of us)we get along very very well. we watch other people/families eat/come in/out, all very normal....til this one family walks in and the wife is definitely very attractive(we both noticed without verbally commenting to each other) and my husbands behavior changed like instantly...lol...he got all squirmy, and jittery, he started talking louder, laughing louder, he even became kinda stupid in asking me if there was ameretto in my ameretto & oj, which i always drink and he heard me order....lol....now mind you, this other wife, didnt pay my husband one bit of attention, you know, flirt out of turn with someone elses husband type thing...
now, i notice it too if a very attractive male happens our way when we are out, but i dont get all flustered and giddy. i love my husband and no matter how attractive a stranger may be, it doesnt actually EFFECT me, or my mood, or my behaviors whether i am with my husband or alone. it may cross my mind to think "boy, hes good looking" but thats it...my mood doesnt change, i dont become dumb because there is a very attractive male stranger in the room....lol
now heres the thing, i myself, have watched men turn stupid in my pressence too; in front of their wives or whomever they are with and i just wind up feeling badly for the wife...i find it a flaw in a mans character to behave flirtatious with me because 1. i am married. and 2. he is married or with someone right there.
so my question is: why do men behave this way?
i know my relationship is solid...i know my husband thinks im the greatest, but it does bother me that he could react so oddly just simply because another attractive woman walked in...she had a child on her hip, her husband at her side, and she behaved respectfully, like i do. i dont want to think less of my husbands character nor begin to have doubts about his feelings for me. i just think that, if you are truely "into" whomever you are with....no other person walking by, would have you acting all stupid...yeh you would notice, but not actually turn stupid over it...lol
ps. i did post this question on another board, just in case it seems familiar.ty
