    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 even get jealous of the fact

    that my roommate has a fwb. I don't want one, but I'm jealous of the fact that she's not alone and I still am.

    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...

    because I'm about to type some neurotic crazy lady rambling. I recently read last month's team report from work. It's a summary of employee interviews about what works, what doesn't, and who, if any, deserves special recognition, in our opinions. On the last report, one of my...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Whenever people talk to you,

    you get so happy. But I don't have the ability to make you happy. Whenever you smile, it brings another part of you. But why can't I bring that part of you? Whenever you laugh, your luminous eyes spark. But can't I make your eyes spark? Jealousy rouses in me when you talk to...

    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...

    Not a Jealous Person...

    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...

    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...
