    The Beast

    Yes, I admit it. I can be the jealous type. I'm sure it's the Scorpio in me, I can't help myself. Really though, this is a trait I'm working to remove from my repatoire. I don't like myself when I become possessed by jealousy. It has a horrible effect on me. I...

    I'M In An Open Relationship But Sometimes I Get Jealous

    I don't act on it, and I also feel guilty about it. When I think that she's going to have experiences without me, or I think that she is able to have better experiences than me, I get a feeling somewhere between shame and jealousy. I hate it. Part of it is a fear of getting...

    Okay so I tried really hard not to be the

    jealous girlfriend while dating my ex boyfriend. But when my bf is sleeping over at my friends house, who btw is a girl and admitted to me that she likes my bf, how the hell am I not supposed to get jealous. Am I just supposed to be okay with that?

    Yeah..

    That was a real issue for me when I was younger. Caused me a lot of pain, but I made sure to direct it at myself and no one else because I knew it was a personal problem I shouldn't be putting on others.

    Not a Jealous Person...

    But when one messes with my man (mainly girl flirting with bf IN FRONT OF ME), or if the situation is just right, I feel that little green monster screaming "MINE" creeping up behind me... Good to know that I am secure enough with myself to know that I can trust him...

    This doesn't always happen to me

    but sometimes... if I really like someone and I know they like me too, I get jealous if their attention is on someone else. A girl I'm kinda with is sexually open like I am which is really great for us because we work well, but she is getting attached to a man she is having sex...

    My boyfriend is in the military

    and I haven't seen him in about 6 months. He has a group of guy friends he always hangs out with but there's this one girl that decides I tag on. It makes me feel uncomfortable and it's inappropriate since all the guys are in a committed relationship. I don't know if it's just...

    I have few words for this,

    I don't like admitting to jealousy but I can admit it drives me crazy. If someone ever tries to make me jealous on purpose then they can kiss my *** as I walk away.

    I can admit I do get jealous at times.

    Sometimes it motivates me and other times I let it go to my head and beat myself up about it. I'm not the type of person to hate just because I'm jealous. I keep it to myself. I don't condone bitterness. That's just not me. I can be happy for someone and still feel indifferent...

    It Really Is Bigger Than Jealousy…

    I am a jealous person, not to the crazy or destructive extreme, but it’s an emotion I’m willing to acknowledge.  I feel the need...at times...to justify to myself what is a normal human reaction. I think it’s a bigger issue than just simple jealousy.  Although I’ve...
