I can't tell whether he's trying to make me jealous or tell me he other someone else watch

    Would like to get someone else's insight on a situation, because I just can't tell if the guy is trying to make me jealous, or the other person, or trying to get me to back off.

    We're not really friends, just acquaintances. I see him on the way to work almost every day. I gave him a little trinket (a pin). Next time I saw him he had two. I asked where he got it and he said someone gave it to him. I had another one, so I gave him that one too, saying that they're just multiplying. He then told me that he'll put it on later, and that it'll make the other girl (one who gave him the second one apparently) jealous, and he'll let me know how that goes. But when I asked if he's trying to make her jealous he said no....that I am, even though I don't know her. Now I'm just confused.

    If he doesn't want her jealous, why wear it? Or is it his way of telling me to back off?

    He thinks you gave him the 3rd trinket because you're trying to make the other girl jealous, by competing with her to see who gives him more trinkets. At least, that's how I see it. He may not seriously like either of you. My advice is to stop giving him trinkets and get to know him better.
