I know im a little late in the topic but i thought i'd throw a female perspective into things. I can understand why your friend would be upset about what happened, and i guess he was afraid to fight the guy that was hitting on his girlfriend, but that's no reason to get mad at her for it. Like everyone has been saying she can't exactly help it and as long as she wasn't flirting back i dont see the problem.

But to everyone who was saying he should have fought the guy, I think that's the wrong approach too. This isn't the stone age. Women don't pick a guy just because he can beat someone else up, women pick a guy because they like the guy. Fighting doesn't prove anything except that he's short tempered and if anything that might push the girl away.

hello Ms Heat.



can I ask you a hypothetical question?


let's say you are in love with two men. they do not know each other because they live time zones apart (and you travel a lot)

how would you ultimately choose? i was just always curious about these dramatic things.

Of course it is. Because she's full of ****. Typical female that doesn't want to be alone so she has to cling to someone at all times. She hung out with your friend until she knew she could get with the other guy. As soon as it was in the clear, she left your friend in the dust.

eh im not a violent guy largely because ive never had to be. i wouldnt fight over a girl (meaning fight a guy just because he likes my girl) because its not like shes a damn trophy. the only way fightin makes sense(in this situation, there are others) is if she asks him to leave and he wont at which point you tell him to leave. if that doesnt work then you kind of have to get physical. he shouldnt have ever gotten mad at her and what the hell does he think you could have done? gone and beat the guy up for him? this is kind of retarded and he probably deserves to be single. also for getting suspended are you in hs? if so there are lots of ways around getting suspended.

honestly, you cant be mad at the other guy... He stepped up and took her away from him... the fat guy proved him right, when he acted like his girl wasnt worth standing up to another guy over. Women like to feel wanted. If she sees that her Bf wont bother to defend her, she'll find a guy who will...Plus you dont want other guys feeling like they can take what is yours from you... Men will make a habit of hitting on wifey if they think you wont do anything about it.. Guys will approach your girl while you standing right there and start rapping to her... Dudes can be really bold and disrespectful if you let them think they can get away with it...

the fat kid lost his broad, thats the way cookie crumbles sometimes.. Hope he learned a lesson from it

let's take an isolated situation...


let's say some extremely cocky machismo guy hits on your girl hard while you are there with her and he does not care you are there and he knows you are there.



you would at least mouth him off and maybe shove him right?

Mouthing off, yes. I wouldn't get physical unless he got in my face, or my girlfriend's face.

happened to me in HS.. I was at a house party with my G. We was hugged up in the corner with the lights low and this guy comes up and starts holdin her hand while Im holding her around the waist.... He starts whispering in her ear while Im right there

Im like "Doggy, this ones taken.... beat it" he kinda ignored me and kept talking to her..... So I pushed his hand away and said something to the effect of "dont body yourself, its only friday"

the whole time she is looking at him and looking at me sorta in shock like "what am I supposed to do?"

he stepped off and there wasnt a fight over it, but there would have been if he didnt leave.
