B/friend makes it obvious?
I really dont know how to tell my b/friend that he makes me upset/annoyed when he looks at other woman when we are out. He does not gawk and stare but he makes it obvous and has a good old look. Now of course men and woman look at the opposite sex including their own sex and this is natural. Its the head turning that gets my goat!

How do I tell him without sounding needy and pathetic? I was thinking the next time it happens I say then that it upsets me?

Do men also feel this way when their g/friends do the same? He did mention to my mother once that I apparently look at men which I did not realise. Herhaps he is doing this because I do it?

Why not simply tell him ? In a pleasant, non-combative way, of course, and picking a qiet time, rather than in the midst of an argument. Excellent points from anon and Taurus. I doubt he's doing this because of what you did --- it's actually quite dificult to consistently do something like this deliberately, if it doesn't come automatically.
