What are you thoughts on when you're with someone he strikes up a conversation with the opposite sex off the street? Yesterday his motorhome broke down on a busy street. After 3 hrs I finally said lets get it towed. We were sitting in my car and he had his window down. Then he started talking to a girl on the sidewalk. It bothered me. Because why? Well I went to help him where my mother just minutes before got out of the hospital. He called while we were helping my mom to her bed at home. So when she was safe I apologized and said I have to go help the guy I'm living with. So anyways I asked him why he felt the need to strike up a conversation with another girl while sitting in my car waiting for a tow truck. He said he just wanted to make her day better. I said what about focusing your attention on the girl you're with. To myself I'm saying you know I dropped everything to help him for three hours. He took my car to get some tools while I waited at the motorhome. Plus I paid for the towing. Plus when he bought the motorhome I helped finacially almost $2000 that he didn't pay back. Shouldn't his attention be towards me and trying to make me happy?
I told him it doesn't make sense why he felt he needed to make her day better. He said maybe you should look at the real reason why it bothers you. So he throws it all back into my face saying I have the problem.

Hi,My coworkers all have no problem setting and communicating boundaries (I'm a people pleaser). They also are able to deliver witty banter easily with self-confidence. Unfortunately, I'm the type A personality in the group which leaves me as an easy target of their teasing. The problem is that I can never come up with any witty banter back to them when they tease me. It ends up that I'm...
