Dating and jealousy

Rated 3.91/5 based on 652 customer reviews

His behavior wasn't all that different from any of ours when someone has something we think rightfully belongs to us.

But when is jealous behavior OK, and when is it not?

If you are super sensitive about female friends of his, because your ex ran off with your friend, let him know.

If you worry when he goes out without you, tell him.

So it turns out that Maya Angelou may be right: a little jealousy can remind us that our partner is important to us and that we value our relationship with them.

I had something that he thought was his and he wanted it back.

Normally, when you grab one of his toys, it's the cue for a game of fetch, but with the new duck, every time I grabbed it he would start jumping, trying to get it back.

Partners who communicate about their feelings of jealousy are typically more satisfied in their relationships than those who act distant or avoidant.

If feelings of jealousy make you pay more attention to or show more affection for your partner (in a caring and not possessive way, of course) this is more positive for your relationship than if you start a fight with your partner or accuse him or her of betrayal.
