My SO and I have been together on and off for the last 6 years. Well as of April we were back together and things are great. We're even working on getting an apartment for the four of us. Well we were out playing pool and a friend who had moved away came by to see me and all the sudden he was WAY more affectionate. The whole time. My SO has never acted jealous before and has never had reason to. He's the only guy I see that way and he knows it. So now I'm confused. Did I do something? Why the sudden change? Is it a good change or should I be worried?

I'm guessing this friend is a guy? Maybe being off & on the past 6 years makes him feel a bit worried about the stability of y'alls relationship, making him feel threatened sometimes. It's normal for everyone to get jealous sometimes, especially if there is a history of instability in the relationship.

That is also a sign he feels out of control so putting his arm around you is showing his insecurities. You should be able to have any friends you want. I would be rethinking this relationship and if this was a one time thing or a permanent thing. GL Momma
