Today, a cute guy who works at the mall winked at me. When I met up with my boyfriend, I bragged to him about it. His response was, "Don't flatter yourself, he winked at me too." FML

Why would you brag to your boyfriend about some other guy winking at you?

Why would you brag about that to your bf? Trying to stir up drama? Ydi.

Why would you brag to your boyfriend about some other guy winking at you?

They probably are just in a joking type of relationship, not all banter between couples is meant to me taken seriously.

18 - if the dude winked at the both of them that shouldn't be too hard!

I always jokingly tell my boyfriend when someone flirts with me or something but I wouldn't call it bragging. It makes him feel good. But for OP, maybe her boyfriend doesn't compliment her anymore and she wanted to get a positive response from him.

So 41, you're saying it is better for OP's self worth to go out, receive a wink from a stranger, and then come home to tell your boyfriend this news? I have come to understand that girls assume their boyfriends compliment them for two reasons: 1) because they "have to" or, 2) because they want to get lucky. I'm on the boyfriend's side. If OP feels that much more elated by some stranger winking at her, maybe she should pursue other ventures rather than stay in this "miserable" relationship.

51, nowhere in my comment did I say it was better, I simply stated my opinion on how the situation may be behind closed doors that would elicit such a response from the OP. You're also partly wrong on why girls like compliments. Your two reasons are correct in some cases, but there are more reasons. Personally, I like compliments because they make me feel good. I absolutely do not EXPECT them from anyone, especially not my boyfriend. As for the post, I'm not really on anyone's side due to the fact that we do not know the entire story.

I do not recommend you go to your boyfriend every time someone winks at you. That sounds like you are trying to either make him jealous or drive him crazy. That is a subject you tell your girl friends. It is never good mix up the two. Not all topics are interchangeable.

Forget the winking because nobody cares. She has a bf so the only thing she should tell him is that some guy winked at her.

my boyfriend and i always talk about when others flirt with us, and even if we flirt back. it keeps us communicating and honest, and alleviates jealousy. and it should be positive for both cause yay youre either called cute by someone else, or (indirectly) that you have good taste!

So you're in a relationship yet you flirt back with people that flirt with you? I just don't understand people these days.

Depends on what kind of relationship they have. Everyone's different.

Well, I'd do the same. Me and my crush love teasing each other about this stuff, as long as we don't go too far.

The girl is -clearly- insecure (to shorten everyone's theory). If you do not see that in this post, fellow commenters... Kill yourself.

How do you KNOW that? Do you know her? If not, it's another theory.

Well from a women's perspective anyways. It wouldn't be a FML if she wasn't taken aback with her bfs comment. So she was clearly digging for some kind of attention, and not in the way she wanted, and if you must go digging or attention, you have insecurity issues because you should really not give a damn about that shit. And instead be grateful. That's all. That's how I look at it. I don't know for fact of course. No one can claim that. And I surely wasn't.

You just went full retard, never go full retard.

Amberrenee91= Amber Renee 1991. Answer, #20, through deductive reasoning.

So,Not saying your wrong,But I have a cousin named Kim O'Marley.Kim's a guy...

While Kim is not an uncommon name for a dude, I'm pretty sure there aren't many guys named "Amber". And "Renee" is the female spelling while "Rene" is the male. That said, maybe OP was fishing for compliments or thought it was sweet that someone besides her boyfriend thinks she's cute. That guy at the mall probably winks at everyone.

Perhaps some modesty will help your character OP.

Why would you brag about that to your bf? Trying to stir up drama? Ydi.

My girlfriend would do the same thing, I'm not sure about OP, but my girlfriend would only say it jokingly to me

Some people it only to see if their partner gets jealous or not.

It sounds like he may wink at everyone he sees!

The poor guy probably has some kind of eye problem that makes everyone think he's flirting with them.

Maybe that guy just has a chronic eye twitch?

That's actually a very strong possibility. I have a friend that winked at me every single time he looked at me and when I asked why he did, he told me he had an uncontrollable eye twitch and that he winked at everyone. I felt like an ass, needless to say.

people with stuff in their eyes, sending mixed signals to strangers since 1911

Stuff didnt fly through the air and get caught and people's eyes until 1911? Man, that sounds like a better time...

it was a utopia. everybody wore safety goggles. beautiful.

Something out of an Orwell book, sounds amazing...

then the goggle famine of 1911 hit...they rationed goggles to fight the war against Greenland and production never caught back up. the horror...the horror

I read that as google, and was like... WTF!!!!

That very immature of you to brag about that to your bf.. What were you trying to do? Make him jealous?
