When you feel as good as you look
That's sad that you want to 's q e e z e' more out of him than he (obviously) is willing to give. Perhaps you have to ask yourself if it's worth it if he needs prodding to make you feel that he pays you enough attention.
Jealousy has nothing to do with love.... Possession is not love. He will pay more attention to you if you stop acting jealous of him (which btw is disrespectful of him to try and make you jealous)When he starts respecting you then you know you've got a shot a real love from him.
Then ask him. It shouldn't 'blow the magic away' if he honestly cares, but if having a conversation like that with him puts him off then you're better off knowing and better off without him. Don't walk around on eggshells playing games and trying to guess how he feels. Ask him.
btw: your theory that 'jealousy can show you that someone still cares' is a poor guide to finding out how he feels - what if you making him feel jealous makes him dislike you for playing games? What if he's jealous because he likes the other guy? - that wouldn't be a sign you were looking for would it?
How about stop trying to make him jealous and talk **** out?
It also annoys the **** out of us and makes you look like a *****. Find an alternative FFS.
A "little" is no different from "a lot" to us. You'll just end up ******* him off. Jealous is jealous, especially since it usually involves another guy.
Leave him. Sends the message much clearer.
Simple: leave. That, or put your foot down and talk like grown ups.
I beg to differ on an individual front, as I've been the calmer one many times, and I'm the one with emotional issues. Don't generalise. It annoys me.
Let me tell you a story. .. many years ago I was very Ken on a girl and mutual friends told me she gent the same. .. the friends decided we would all go on a picnic. ..3 cars of people. ... When I got picked up one of the guys told me he heard her dating to agf in the car hire she was going to ignore me and make me jealous and chase after her... At the beach she did this. ... kept disappearing for walks with other people so I ignored her. .. At the end of the day she was in tears because I didn't chase her. .. We never did see each other again. ... end of story
from everything you are saying in yiur replies, one fact seems to be clear. .. the relationship is not giving you what you want. ... If that is so it may be time to move on. ... If he is not the person you want then go out and find him. ... Being in love may be grand but if it's with the wrong person is not fun. ... despite what you may believe love does not conquer all and sometimes love alone is not enough. ..I do wish you the best but I don't think making him jealous to see if he loves you is the right approach .. Good luck :)
Not protective (controlling)
That's ok... But I do think your current guy is not the guy you really want or need
Why do you want to make him jealous? Don't you realize that isn't good for a relationship?
Sorry to be a pain but his reation may not show love but simple possession. ... His idea of how a relationship works appears to be different to yours
