Boyfriend flirts and denies it.

By Dr. Marie Hartwell-Walker

why does my boyfriend flirt but says he isn’t when i see it

A: He may deny what he’s doing because he wants to keep doing it. Or he may not admit it because he doesn’t want to fight with you about it. Or it just may be that he’s not flirting and you’re insecure and reading his behavior incorrectly. Rather than arguing: “You did.” “I did not.” I suggest you two have a talk about whether you are on the same page about your relationship and what each of you need from the other to feel secure in it.

I wish you well.
