Question three: what can my friend do now that she’s found herself the object of office jealousy (and jealousy’s BFFs, resentment and hatred)?
Staying Calm and Grounded Building Your Confidence Interacting With Other Girls Community Q&A Sometimes, you can get nervous around other girls you know, especially if they are very popular.
Many other girls experience this in their schools too, so you are not alone.
It may depend on your audience, but I feel comfortable saying that 99% of the time, you don’t engender positive opinion about yourself when you 1) talk about an issue with another woman and attribute the conflict to the other woman being jealous of you; 2) talk about how many men are after you, the compliments you receive on how beautiful you are, how some guy crashed his car while staring at you walk down the street, how it’s so hard to be you because of all the attention, etc.; 3) talk about how guys in the office stare at you, hit on you, etc.
Single girls don't like to go out with me to bars and stuff, like you know how you see those groups of girls go out on weekends?
Other women are therefore competition, even if logically a woman can recognize that she’s in a relationship or not actually interested in dating people at the office herself or that there’s actually not a cash prize for being the best looking person in the office.
