My girlfriend who's 16 gets hit on by 26 year old guys and older all the time. It bothers me that she just doesn't turn them away. She'll she awww you're so kind and that's so sweet of you. I know she's not interested in them but it's still it bothers me she's even friendly with them. She thinks it's just a joke so she tells me all about them.
I can't ask her not to do it cause she'll get upset I'm making a decision for her and if I tell her it upsets me she won't get it cause to her it's just a joke and I'll be overreacting.
Maybe I am just being insecure. Being freshly 18 without a car and only a part time job, someone who's 26 who has a full time job, place of their own, car and has a good 6 inches on me is a little threatening. I just don't know what to do.

Probably a little of both? I would call it sensitivity and fear that she isn't really committed to a relationship with you; though... I wouldn't really call you feeling that way bad. It makes sense to me for her to not flirt back with people who engage her when she is with you.1
