    I've been dating my boyfriend for just over a year now, and him and i are part of a tight circle of friends, and recently a new guy has been "introduced" to the group. My boyfriend has never met him; however, i have and we're really good friends. Another girl in the group (who doesn't know where "the line" is, as such, jokingly accused me of liking him as more than a friend (which believe me, i'd never do). It was all a big laugh and i spoke to my boyfriend about it and i thought he found it as funny as we all did, but turns out he'd spoken to this girl about him, even though I'd reassured him he had nothing to be concerned about. I've spoken to him about it, but tbh i'm still mildly miffed off. Does he not trust me? He says he does, but i'm just worried... am i paranoid?

    It's a bit complicated. If someone that knows you both days you like someone else, When that sparks a thought in his mind it doesn't mean he doesn't trust you. He probably just wants to 'investigate' where the girl got this from and why, just to double check. If he's not acting weird and distrusting now, it should be fine and I'd just leave it. If you're still bothered by it, let him know that discussing it with the girl upset you and made you feel uneasy, explaining why. It'd also be worth letting the girl know that she went too far and ask her to not to make that kind of joke about you again
