Women, young and old, married or single, educated or not, seem to be jealous of each other whenever they come together. I think it's a genetically driven tendency to compare one other. Even though it has been happening forever, I feel it has been made worse by feminism, which gives women permission to act on all their emotions (useful and useless, alike), and supports 'girl power' in all forms--if you're female you should feel free to do anything you feel like, including act in silly and immature ways. We need to educate girls to be confident in themselves and not concentrate so much on their bodies. But, honestly I don't think much can be done about women's innate competition for access to males, getting married, and having children. It's just too fundamental to our existence. Men are just as driven, but in their case it's to go out and get the things that will make him acceptable to a potential mate. Men don't compete over women, they compete--sometimes unfairly or even cruelly--over resources that may attract women. These are genetically driven, but very different behaviors. Think of it this way: a women will have all sorts of things tied up in a relationship including marriage, kids, and a home; a man doesn’t prioritize all these things as much as finding a female to reproduce with. Once a woman finds an acceptable man, she will put all her resources into making this one relationship work out. So when ‘hunting’ she is ultra-aware of her physical appearance, which is the thing that attracts him to her (no matter what anyone says). Men, on the other hand, don’t really need to compete with each other over women because their primary goal is to have sex with the next available woman (no matter what anybody says). This doesn’t mean that men and women can’t be responsible and good people, it’s just that we have to understand our fundamental natures.
I think it's because they have low self esteem and are very insecure about themselves. Also because they see someone with high self esteem who is not focusing on her flaws and they too busy trying to find something they can point out that make get a bad person. Smdh
I never could understand jealousy. If you want it ....get it. What's to be jealous of...... See something you admire in another? find a way to get the equivalent...... Work for it.... why waste time on jealousy?
