Q: My girlfriend becomes jealous around this knockout friend of hers. Should we avoid going out with her?

Not necessarily. In fact, an evening out might be the perfect opportunity for you to put your girlfriend’s mind at ease. All you have to do is lavish lots of attention on her while simultaneously treating the hottie like a piece of furniture.

Be civil…
of course, but avoid the kind of friendly gestures you might normally make – like putting your arm around her. By the end of the night, your girlfriend will have realised that this woman, no matter how gorgeous she may be, has zero hold over you. That’s all she really wants to know.
