Do I have a right to be upset about a nickname my husband was given?

This is a really awkward situation for me. I’m trying not to be so sensitive, but there is a back story. Without getting too much into detail, I want to know… Is it ok… or would it bother you, if the wife of your husbands best friend… always called your husband by a nickname… to me, I don’t like it because she and I had a problem in the past where she actually messaged my man and said, “I don’t know why your girl is acting like that I knew you before her” ever since she said that I never trusted her intentions. Mind you, I knew my husband AND her husband six years before she came into the picture. But she’s established this nickname for my man, and I’m seriously wondering if I should let her know how I feel. Are my feelings justified? Should I say something, and if so, how? Please help. I am asking for a friend.

It depends on what the nickname is.

What’s the nickname? If its dick head, I won’t care. If its sugar britches, we’re throwing hands.

I guess if it was something super sexual it wouldn’t be okay but friends give each other nicknames. You should work on being more confident so you’re not threatened by him having a female friend. I guarantee you’d be irritated if your husband acted this way towards a completely platonic male friend of yours.

Depends on the nickname and the meaning behind it

Can’t tell if you’re overreacting because we don’t know the nickname she is calling him

First off it’s your man’s job to deflect any women that are hitting on him if he has respect for your relationship he won’t let her establish a nickname two Make sure you’re not being petty if you can trust your man then that’s all the security you need

Depending on the nickname I’d probably be mad too. But due to past situations I’ve become a very jealous person and I’ve learned that you really can’t trust the stuff they tell you is “innocent”. Not knowing the nickname it’s hard to say though. But I’m assuming it’s a cutsie name she has no business calling him.

Depending on the nickname if it’s sweetie, honey or anything sexual she would be swallowing teeth but honestly if I had a problem with it I’d talk to my husband so he could tell her to not call him that anymore as you aren’t okay with it. I really think if you say something to her it will likely start a fight but if you have to you have to

I need some context on what exactly the nickname is. If his name is Joey and she calls him Joe and you’re mad then yes you’re crazy. If she calls him babe or stud muffin or something along those lines then you have every right to want boundaries established and respected.

This sounds like jealousy. Be the better person. She is most likely doing this just to aggravate you. Ignore her.

Well spill the damn tea. What’s the nickname?? Or you could be petty and start doing the same to her husband but idk how well that would go over :joy:

It should be your husband that tells her to stop, I’m sure he knows how you feel but really does depend on what she’s calling him.

You should talk to your partner & not strangers on the internet about your problems…

Depends on the nickname my husband is known as cowboy but if you got a gut feeling about this girl then go with it

Its your husband’s job to shut other women down.
