I don't think your boyfriend is trying to protect his feelings, but avoid more interaction with this person.
What the guy did was rude on multiple levels, but it also suggest maybe he's not the most stable or rational person? So it's probably best to keep the interaction and conflict low and let him move on from it. If that's how he acts with people, he won't get very far and he'll have to deal with the natural consequences - alienating people.
I'd say you're overreacting. It's nothing against you that that person confessed to your BF. If anything, the guy prob alrdy knew he'd get rejected anyway and only did it to get over him. The only relation this holds to you, is that you're the actual BF/GF (sry I can't tell :[ )
If you step up now, it'll only make you look petty tbh. The whole thing was over and done with as soon as your BF rejected the guy. And as long as he doesn't actually come onto your BF, I'd say stay out of it. I understand you're annoyed and hurt maybe, but it truly isn't "your business" to say it harshly/directly. Your BF ended it, and that's that.
Concerning the insult - that was prob just a cover up for the dude and his hurt feelings. I wouldnt mind that one much.
Honestly, I think you should probably move on. Your feelings are already hurt, and I assume your boyfriend's feelings would be hurt too after being insulted. What's more, the person who confessed was probably hurt too by being rejected, even if what they did was insensitive. Confronting them will probably create more unnecessary hurt and drama. There's not a lot you can do about jerks like that, so it may be best to just let sleeping dogs lie in this case.
typical loser calling someone ugly right after they get rejected lmao. it's standard procedure for insecure hoes out there so don't take it personally. if ur boyfriend was "ugly" then the guy would've never confessed to him in the first place, so let him live with the embarrassment bc clearly it ATE him up for him to be throwing out insults like that.
i understand the desire to want to drag a bitch for ur loved ones, but if ur boyfriend says he's over it... then i think u should be over it too. at the end of the day, that moron is gonna feel so damn awkward for the remainder of ur class time, so revel in the fact that u have their dream date while they'll be seething in the corner x
Why do you want to keep beating a dead horse? That thing ended when your bf said no to that guy. You going to confort that guy could possibly just create a big uneccesary drama that nobody asked (he got feelings hurt and acted because of that and then you come and they go to defence mode and the mess is ready). If you go to talk to that guy it might seem petty or jealous move which is not cute. In the worse scenatio that might hurt your bf's pride that you have to get involved because you dont trust them enough. But i dont know about you or your bf and what kind of people you are. So leave it. You already have him so why to waste time to someone irrelevant?
And no im not saying you cant feel hurt too but there are things that are meant to be left alone and move on. This is one of them
if your bf doesn't want you to confront that guy , respect it
thank you everyone (:
