    ...would shut the **** up? This is not targeted at anyone in particular but it comes across as very insecure, like when I used to mention my sexual conquests with girls..

    And sure I've been with girls before. It's very annoying when people say yeh and my bf does this that and this. Yawn.

    Congratulations your life is defined by someone else who probably given reality won't be with you forever.

    Then there's people who mention their projects or businesses. Notice how they seem more with it and have much bigger ambitions than a bf or gf?

    Yes, well said.
    As well as the people who state as soon as you go up to talk to them that they have a boyfriend/girlfriend so there's no point hitting on them, not even considering that you might want to just talk to them. Get over yourselves.

    Maybe they just want you to know so that they don't have to bother with you getting all interested on them.

    Throughout life, there are many people who are important to us at certain points, but won't be at others. I see nothing wrong with talking about them. Particularly if it's a romantic relationship, because the feelings can be so strong. Fair enough, I don't particularly like it when people talk about anyone/anything non-stop when I'm trying to have a conversation with them, but mentioning their boyfriend or girlfriend really isn't a problem.

    Yeah I don't really like when people do that. I don't have a bf or gf. It comes across as insecure. I don't have a bf or gf.

    I get what you mean but I just feel it kills any desire to speak to them, it just makes me think of them as up-themselves. They should ay least give the conversation a chance to flow before judging whether they're being hit on or not.

    Not when hitting on anyone I mean in just normal conversation. It's form of insecure bragging as if it's an achievement.

    My friends must be weird then - the only time the subject of their partner ever comes up if it's somehow relevant to the conversation in some way.

    But yeah, it's annoying. I know someone who used to do this, like he had a point of some sort to prove.

    Just amuses me, doesn't harm anyone and is mostly about self affirmation or coaching (e.g. people whom may not be wholly satisfied by their relationship but feel the need to remind themselves of what they have/ward others off)

    Women in particular crave social legitimacy/validation, yes it does make them seem a little insecure but so what? The vast majority of women are insecure about something or other - this isn't big news. So long as they're not trying to make out they're better than anyone I don't see a problem personally

    I hate people like that. If a guy tries to talk to me on a night out, I will talk to them alongside my friends, and will mention my bf if they start trying it on. I don't see the harm in talking to someone unless they try it on or getting gropey
