Remember Steve's ex? The one that I met, but still greatly dislike? Well, she's back again.
It seems that her birthday was the other day and my sweet boyfriend decided to send her birthday flowers and balloons to say happy birthday.
He and I were at dinner that night and he mentioned that he spoke to her, as it was her birthday, so he called to say happy birthday. The next day (yesterday) I was on facebook and glanced at his page (because someone commented on something I said) and I saw a photo of a bouquet of flowers with balloons attached with the following comment-
My birthday balloons and flowers from Steve! Kitty thought they tasted great, btw.
She posted the photo and tagged him for all the world to see!
First I was a bit shocked. Why is he sending flowers to another girl, and why did he fail to mention it to me when he said it was her birthday?!
I'm not sure if I am more upset that he sent the flowers to begin with, or that he failed to tell me about them and I had to find out via facebook and look like a jackass when people (ie, my sister) have asked why MY boyfriend is sending flowers to another girl.
(shouldn't her boyfriend be pissed too!?)
(he's not- he doesn't care)
(mid-westerners are so weird....)
We talked about it, and he doesn't think it is a big deal. They are friends, he says, nothing more, and she is far from a threat to me, but really, that isn't the point, is it? He sees it as a friendly gesture, not something romantic at all and said he won't send them anymore if it bothers me, which clearly it does.
What do you think? Am I over-reacting? What would you do/say/feel/think if this were you?
