I’m currently going through a rough period with my mental health and have begun to worry about my girlfriends relationship with her work friend.
quick story: girlfriend of nearly 2 years has a friend at her workplace. they see each other quite often obviously but have recently started hanging out outside of work. she has always had a lot of male friends and it’s never been an issue for me.
she went out with some friends including him while I was away recently. not really a problem since it was in a group setting. she was going to go out and get a drink with him the other week for his birthday but never did for whatever reason. felt a bit weird about it but its his birthday and their friends so fair enough.
what im worried about is that she talks about this guy a fair bit and does stuff like make him a cake and bring it in to work for him when she’s not working, drop by work when he’s having a bad day to comfort him I guess?
she’s a very giving person and loves cooking for people, giving gifts etc. its kind of her way of expressing love and friendship and she’s good at it. I’m not and it seems a little involved to me but we have differing personalities when it comes to that sort of thing.
One thing I keep coming back to is he’s quite young. We’re both early to mid twenties and he’s 18 just out of highschool. in my mind too young to be a worry but I’m not so sure.
any advice? I’m hesitant to bring it up cause she hasn’t really given me anything to doubt my trust in her and in my current mental state it might end badly.
