Dear Aunt Sassy,
My ex, who I'm still close with, and want to remain friends with, needs me to be jealous, I think. I'm not. But I think it's making him feel like I never loved him, and that's not the case at all.
It's been a year, and we're both trying hard to be friends. It's not always easy, but we both want each other in our lives, so the effort is worth it.
He seems to need me to show a bit of jealousy over guys who are interested in him. In the interest of getting along, is it better to give in and show a flash of jealousy now and again? Or will I just encourage this need of his?
