Well, see the thing is - you were there and you know it was innocent and that nothing happened and it's not a big deal. But your boyfriend wasn't there, so there's all manner of jealous thoughts running through his head. Just try and think how you'd feel if the situation was reversed - if you saw a random photo of your boyfriend and some girl was holding him or touching him an a way which you didn't quite feel comfortable with. So no, you're not a bad girlfriend and you didn't do anything wrong, but try and understand that your boyfriend is just dealing with a natural jealousy issue. I don't know your boyfriend, but all I'd suggest doing is just reassuring him that nothing happened and that you do at least understand why he's upset. I hope that helps :)

I totally agree, you know that it was innocent and that you are just friends with this guy, but you should try to see it from his end, that some guy was holding your leg. I would be upset that he got upset about it, but I would try to see things in his viewpoint and try to reassure him.

As much as I can see how angry your bf would get, you are not a bad gf because of that. You didn't do anything and I think that is fine. But I can understand why your bf would get jealous too. You should let him know that there is nothing to worry about, somehow. Good luck!

I dont think it sounds like a big deal. Sounds like he is just jealous. Does he know this other guy? Have you and this other guy have been friends a long time? If yes then I think he is over reacting. If no, then hopefully he will just get over it in time. Good luck.

I cant see the problem if he was your friend, I'm sure your boyfriend will understand

for sure... he's very jealous on the pic that he saw. on his mind, he was thinking that the guy was not only your friend but it was once your lover.

He is just jealous I think.It's a normal reaction since you are his girlfriend. Don't be affected,instead explain to him that the man is just your friend.
