    Okay so every bit of research I've done on jealousy says that if you mention a guy you find attractive to a guy you think likes you, and he replies instantly with a girl he finds attractive it is a guaranteed sign of jealousy or pretty much certain.

    I've noticed if I'm jealous this is true for me. Although I don't know why.

    What do guys who like a girl and feel jealous of her talking about an attractive man suddenly change the subject to a women they find attractive?

    I don't know. Perhaps they try to make you jealous by talking about girl they find attractive?

    I did that the other day without thinking about it...

    I think it serves two purposes:

    A) To try to make them jealous in return.

    B) To try and save some pride and act as if you're not interested in that person.

    Interesting though!

    Because people are afraid to be vulnerable, maybe?

    I had no idea this was a thing. I'd be too busy feeling crushed to be able to think of some other guys name tbh.

    It indicates you don't fancy the person you're talking to. This in turn creates a desire in the other person to have you. It's a psychological/primitive stance, we want what we can't have, or want what other people are receiving, mainly just attention. Particularly noticeable in girls.

    Mostly this.
    In some people it acts like a defence mechanism, I think.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but you're wondering this:

    why does the guy vindictively mention a female he finds attractive in front of another woman...after she mentions a guy she likes?

    Well there it is right there.

    She rudely complimented a guy, so he bit back and mentioned a pretty woman. :indiff: I see it as more immature than jealousy, though. Or perhaps petty. Like why doesn't he brush it off and make her pay attention to him again with a charming diversion...instead of going tit for tat, and getting baited by this chick's uncouth mannerisms

    Girl: "Ugh, Leo DiCaprio is soo adorbs! I'm soo stoked that he finally won an Oscar!" *shrill squeal*
    Dude: "Ahh :curious: yea yea...well, Beyonce looked smashing at the SuperBowl :eviltongue:."
    Girl: Okay...? But Leo though! :daydreaming:
    Dude: (:argh:)

    Not really, if a girl says this to you run for the hills she isn't going to stick around very long.
