    My boyfriend and I are in our first year of university and we are in a long distance relationship. We are both very much in love with each other and I'm so so happy. However, his female flatmate definitely likes him. I've met her a few times and the way she looks and talks to him just knocks me sick. She posted a Snapchat of him last night after he'd spent a week with me with love heart emojis on it. She's not physically tried anything with him or tried messaging him but it just bothers me. I am not worried about my boyfriend in the slightest, I know for a fact he's not interested and hes completely oblivious to it tbh. I just don't know how to handle it. I don't want to confront her, I just want to be nice to her but equally piss her off and get her to stop trying to hit on him. What should I do??

    Must be really annoying to have that nagging away in the back of your mind. But since you are a long way away and she hasn't tried to make any moves, I think the best thing is to try and grit your teeth and try and ignore it.

    If you trust him, he'll be innocent and loyal enough not to betray you in any way. Perhaps you could try and visit more often if possible, just to remind him you're still there, just out of sight? (Of course, don't go just to 'check-up' or spy on him - that'll only make him suspicious).

    Honestly, if you think it wouldn't make things awkward between them too much then you could tell your bf how you feel? Being open about it seems like the best thing to do (as it usually is in good relationships) - it'll only make him cherish you more, since you care so much Just give him a heads up (and perhaps a friendly threat, because why not? ) Hope you manage to shake off that feeling of ever-so-slight jealousy (you have every right to be! )
