The thing to me is that if we that kind of dynamic where we can tease each other about our faults, it suggests to me that we're like "equals" if that makes any sense. Someone who idolizes the other wouldn't do that -- they'd just flatter and compliment and agree with everything you say. Whereas someone who can disagree and playfully tease feels more like an equal to me as opposed to a "fan".

I actually make joke at others or teasing exactly for the same reasons you described, but since my girlfriend and friends just love teasing me or making fat or double sided jokes, I just started to nod and sometimes laugh even if I don't like them.
*don't make jokes at others
id talk to your girlfriend about it... or maybe dont joke with them in your way if that is the result of them joking insultingly... mayvbe they periece your jokes as insulting so as i said it really depends can you joke with someone or not.Funny enough I have one sotry with this. There are 2 guys at my work place. One i joke all the time even in insulting way but we know its all jokes and the energy is light and we sometimes insult like oneselfes to ease the mood etc. Like we get each other energy is great. Yet one time he insulted me and i knew that was just jokes totally light. But that other guy was with us and he laughed. And I felt so bad - insulted. Why? Cause his enerhy was off and he was actually mean mocking me so energy is one big thing. If people think bad thought you can feel it or at leas t i can :)
sorry i just saw your edit... well if they mock you like that then definitely talk to your girlfriend and "insult" them back dont just take itIn my experience men talk like that all the time...
I generally don't make joke or tease because I'm never sure how they would take it, I make some teasing with my girlfriend but like you said we know it's all a game and if there's something at one of us' expenses it's just for fun. Sometimes I'd prefer to not be teased about my accent or my height but that's life I guess.I think you are definitely right when you say it all depends on the energy and kind of relationship in play.

Lol I just love getting taxed when flirting. 😂 Don't worry I read it the same way until I had to do a double take to see if I read it properly.
Disagree, but you got a point there
