“Office romance can be nice and can make for a good story to tell your kids about someday. But it’s definitely bad news if the person in the office romance is your girlfriend and her officemate. Man, that’s such a bummer.”
Just imagine them getting to see each other for at least eight hours every day – in a turf where nothing is on your side. You can use it to your advantage but the office people are likely his friends, her boss probably likes him for her and chimes in on the usual lunch break teasing, and worse of all, it is one place where you cannot just simply walk in and make your ‘presence’ known. What I’m trying to say is, if you’re jealous at some guy who works in the same office as your girlfriend does, you cannot just simply do what you’d normally do to other men. You have to step up your game because the odds are clearly not on your side on this one.
Useful Tips For You
So, what do you do if you’re stuck in this kind of situation? What do you exactly do when you’re jealous of her officemate? Here are some tips:
- Surprise her every now and then. Whether it’s bringing her some homemade lunch, sending her flowers in the middle of the day, or making her bring a lunchbox that you made yourself that comes special with a note, or maybe even picking her up from work at the end of the day, you have to somehow make sure that your presence is known and felt in that office. It’s being possessive but in a good and efficient (I say, necessary!) way. And click here for an attraction guide (highly recommended).
- Win the rest of the office. So he thinks he’s king over all of them. After all, they should be friends right? But hey, you shouldn’t have to be the bad guy here! If he’s a good guy, I don’t see a reason why you can’t be the other good guy. See, if her office friends see you as a douchebag, a-hole, SOB kind of boyfriend, they’d likely take his side even more. But if they see you not only making your girl happy but also reaching out to her office friends (i.e. having a huge office-sized pizza for everyone on a random Friday, or some overnight sesh), they would like him and they would like you two and would know that no matter what happens, she’s better off with you than anyone else.
- Be nice on the office nightouts. Sure there is a plus 1 in every office nightout! And should you happen to be available on the nightout (which you should actually be), be the nicest person they’d ever meet. Yes, be nice even to the guy that you’re jealous of. And throughout the night, never fall short of being the sweet boyfriend doting on his girlfriend when she needs him to be but letting her go with her friends in full trust and confidence (but keeping an eye on the other guy).
- Give your girlfriend an awesome weekend every now and then. Give her a smashing, memorable, awesome, breathtaking weekend that would keep her talking about it on Monday to all her girlfriends. I think, in man-speak, only an a-hole of a man would still try to make his moves on a girl who’s obviously very happy with her man.
Office jealousy? No problem; follow these steps and that guy will be jealous of you (so would the other girls in the office – they’d be envious of her luck having you for a boyfriend).
