Question from Ashley M.: I have been with my guy for over seventeen years, we’re both flirty people, but as of lately he’s crossed a line with a particular person. I’ve warned him and have had discussions about this person he swear is only a friend, but the same thing keeps happening. I’ve offered him a way out, but he insists that he wants to stay together. I’m not a super jealous person, but I don’t want to be disrespected. We’re trying to save what we have.

Technology Dating Advice That Will Help You Deal With Your Partner’s Online Flirting

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: When you’ve been with someone for a long time, sometimes the relationship may lose the spark and excitement it once had. Which may cause one person to seek out the thrill of attention from the opposite sex outside the relationship, while still maintaining the security of your relationship. Try to revive and spice up your relationship with flirtations and sexy moves in the bedroom, so he won’t feel the need to seek attention elsewhere. If he continues with his behavior with his “friend,” then it may be time to try working with a relationship coach who can help you work through the issues at hand. And if that fails, then it may be time to move on to a man who only wants to flirt and be with you.

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: It’s time for “the talk”. Seventeen years is a long time, so there must be a strong bond. But, over time little things become big things when they’re not addressed. You say he’s crossed the line and you feel disrespected. He says she’s only a friend and he wants to stay together. Something has to give. I say tell him to get his priorities in order. That means saying goodbye to her and paying attention to you. If he balks or shows any sign of hesitation, it’s time to respect yourself and let him go.
