Not all people do. When I left my ex-husband he was the last person I wanted to see and certainly didn't want to make him jealous. I put as much distance between him and I as I could. There are immature people that just want to flaunt the fact someone is interested in them besides you and you may not have a met a girlfriend/boyfriend yet. Just smile.


WELL, personally, I do it kind of as a "look-what-you're-missing-out-on" thing. I know that sounds bad, but... it's difficult to explain. It's like an impulse. And I don't do it constantly, only in certain situations.

Wrong, you make your currents jealous

In my opinion, people will do that because they feel hurt in some way and want them to feel the same way they do.
