    :(

    Mine doesn't do that. It would make me feel bad, and he doesn't like it when I feel bad.

    Maybe it's time for a talk with your spouse and let him know that it bugs you?

    My husband would never dream of doing that to me and vice versa. We respect each other too much.

    What is your reaction when you are bullied that way?

    My ex didn't do things like that on purpose, but he did do it frequently. He has Aspergers, so he is very socially awkward. Things he thinks are funny are actually mean.

    Nope. BF and I respect each other too much much to do that around other people.

    At home, though... it's open season. It probably helps that I'm a klutz and embarrass myself daily. At least we get a good laugh out of it.

    My hubs never does this either. But like, chebrutta, at home it's no hold's bar.

    DH likes to tease and sometimes would say something like what you posted above, but it wouldn't make me feel bad. I would have immediately teased right back like, "well, you really don't, but now I know you want one". He would never cross the line with anything that really would upset me.
