I was trying to illustrate the circular trap we can get trapped in while being a couple. I guess I should have made it a little more clear.Your post and the title are confusing.
Are you asking why people dislike the answer "Nothing" or are you saying that they get mad when you give an actual answer?
Quite similar to some of my occasions of severing female relationships for her yet she maintained a rather hidden friendship that made me uncomfortable. In the past, but the pain left it's mark.For me it's not getting angry about them sharing, but about what they're sharing. For example, my wife was obviously upset a few weeks ago, and after some prodding she finally told me she was upset that I was friends with some girl on facebook.
I got mad at her. Why? Not because she told me, but because she could feel that way in the first place. She is a notoriously promiscuous woman who has proven all it takes is someone asking nicely for her to cheat. Me? Even with permission and total justification and an ex-girlfriend who really wanted me, I remain faithful. I was upset that her brain could even entertain the notion that there was something wrong with me having a female on my friends list while she's been out having sex with every guy she sees.
I learned exactly what you said a little over a year ago. :iagree:Turn it around and tell them what you need? Tell them they are not meeting your needs?
Not being snarky. Just looking for a way to get off your hypothetical merry go round and trying to learn as much as I can.
