A girl irrespective of the role she plays in life is prone to jealousy. Men become aware of this fact by experience. Last Monday turned out to the evening where my young friend became experienced. On Monday evening, I ended up with my young friend and his girlfriend at The Cricketer in the vicinity of Saint-Lazare station. By the way, Monday evenings is the Quiz night in this pub. New to the British custom in Paris, we participated in the proceedings as a team and came first; first from the last.
It may have been the sympathy created from the results, women stopped by our tables for chit chat. My young friend being extremely cordial and polite responded without malice. When I say "without malice", I mean he was not flirting. They were asking questions and he was answering. But the politeness did not go well with his girlfriend. My young friend, being young and inexperienced, was not bright to interpret the unspoken messages on his girlfriend's face. Come on! Don't blame me. I tried to distract her. But you know how futile it is to distract a focussed woman!
Here is my question. What is the right thing? When a girl makes small talk, should a man completely ignore her?
