I love it when someone is protective. Over protective, as the word itself suggests, is more than necessary and annoys me.
Once in my art class, someone threw a pencil at me and it hit me right under the eye. My eye started bleeding so I was holding a tissue up to my eye (it kinda looked like I was crying). One of my guy friends walked up and asked what idiot he needed to beat up for making me cry.
How sweet!... Even if he didn't know that you weren't crying...
That's not protecting. That's avenging.
I disapprove of it, though.
Yeah my brothers are really overprotective and sometimes it's annoying but most of the time it's nice to know that they just care a lot
