I never thought of myself as having a jealousy problem, but I feel like I'm developing one. I made a new friend at my college and brought her into my circle of friends. Everyone really likes her, and she likes them! Problem is, I think she likes my boyfriend of a year a little too much. She always sits by him and giggles with him, and she's always touching him whether it's a tickle or high-fiving every little thing! Am I being over the top, or do I have the right to be a little jealous?

I would think you have the right to be a little upset. You were nice enough to bring her into your social circle, and now she's taking advantage of it. Since I'm guessing you've known your boyfriend longer than this friend, start with him. Ask if he notices her flirts and if he realizes he's doing it back, because he probably doesn't think he is. Then, bring it up to your friend. Don't be mean about, but confront her in a mature way that her behavior makes you uncomfortable. Hopefully she realizes her mistakes and asks for forgiveness, otherwise, you might need to find a way to get her out of your circle!
