    There's nothing you can really do when someone stares or gawps at your partner. Wolf-whistling is rude but again I'd let that go. But there's no way I'd let it go if someone tried to hit on my girlfriend right in front of me, especially when they ****in know she's with me.

    Do you think I have a right to get physical? She would be scared if were to get hurt or jumped on, so she always tells me to let it go. But I can't help it because not only do I want to protect her but also they are overtly taking the bloody piss by trying it on.

    What would you do in a similar situation?

    I'd probably walk over casually between them and say fancy a dance, or give her a quick peck just to make things clear

    if things continued blatently

    well

    a few well chosen words in said person's ear

    I think if you trust your other half not to take them up on the offer, then the best and most satisfying thing you could do would be to start kissing your girlfriend / boyfriend, and make it clear that they are with you (and also it will make the person whos trying to hit on them jealous as hell).....better than lowering your self to their standards by getting physical...

    Come over and sit on his lap pointedly/put my arm round him and walk away with him and give her the finger over my shoulder.

    There's no option on there for assuming your bf/gf will just walk away? Why does your gf need you to sort it out?

    I know she's capable of looking after herself but as her man I feel obliged to manage the situation in some way. Of course she'd walk away from it but the point is how would you feel at the heat of the moment if someone tried to hit on your bf while you're with him.

    I was having a meal with my boyfriend recently, when the waitress was blatantly flirting with him while i was sitting there.
    He didnt realise she was but it really anoyed me that she was doing it.
    I mentioned it to him and he want bothered as he was there with me. I dont no if she herd, but after I said that everytime she came to our table she directed everything she said at me.
    It did anoy me but I coildnt really say something in that situation.
    However in different circumstances I would say something.

    That's alright then. My bf would definately have something to say if someone hit on me! Not that they would. :rolleyes:

    I'd probably do what other people said, and make it obvious he's mine!

    I wouldn't even walk away, I'd just wait until he's done. I believe in a free, competitive market, and it's not like she's under contract.

    I've had a guy hit on my now ex whilst I was waiting for her, she was just getting a light for her fag, I just walked over and stood with her. Mostly because I was wondering what the hell was taking her so long, I was tired, you see. He then tried to get her number in an ingenius way, but as I knew she wouldn't do anything, though paranoid bout it, I didn't make a fuss and generally joked about the incident later on.

    In a well-functioning market economy, theoretically there is a price for all goods and services. It seems to me that you would treat your gf as a commodity. Does she have a price?

    Depends if they knew they it was my partner or not, (if they did they would get a headbutt) but if my partner wasn't walking away, or they were trying it on with them i'd probably headbutt them both.
    Nice one. I didn't think about the "headbutt them both" option. :-))

    Lol that just means you're really insecure. I KNOW for a fact my g/f wouldn't cheat so I'd just stand there and watch, probably with a smirk on my face.

    id no nothing with someone random, i generally trust my girlfriends, i cant blame a guy for trying it on, if he knew i was with her i'd think a little less of him, and if it were a mate and he kept doing it id ask what his game was, the next day ect

    if a guy tried to pull my girlfriend, id leave it for her to deal with it, unless he was being forceful ect then obviously id step in.

    Well its more like a labour market I suppose, so she does have a price but its not like I could sell her. And, I hope at least, that the price is completely made up of non-wage benefits.

    In reality I'd just make a joke of it, but it must be irritating if it happens often.

    I like to think I'd say something mildly condescending, a subtle but harsh insult which would make them feel embarassed.
    In reality there's a good chance I wouldn't notice, or would be too afraid of jumping to conclusions to say anything. :rolleyes:
