  • For certain things..
  • Nope. No time for it.
  • i don't think so..
  • Yes, I get jealous if someone has something really cool.
  • No, but I so jealous of the ability to ask good questions that get alot of answers... ;)
  • Well when i first started dating my now fiancee i was EXTREMELY jealous...he didnt live with me so every time he didnt call when he said he would i would panic...and in the long run we broke up for 6 months because of it. But now we are engaged...so i guess it just depends on if you can change over time , and if your partner is willing to work with you to help you change.
  • Not since I was a teen, and yes.
  • yes, in my younger days. But I have since realized that it was only insecurity. A little (VERY LITTLE) jealousy can be flattering but any more than that can wreck a relationship in short order.
  • No I am not a jealous person. That may have harmed some of my relationships because the other person may have thought I didn't care enough.
  • what does detrimental mean?
  • I have experienced jealousy, yes, but usually for a good reason. My ex was unfaithful and dishonest with me for years (yes, I own up to my putting up with it for so long and am not in getting into the wherefores and whyhows here). I will experience twinges of jealousy in my current relationship when things happen or are said that triggers memories of my past experiences with my ex-husband. Even though there is a potential for it to be detrimental to our relationship, it has not and will not be so. We both are very aware of out personal baggage and own up to it and openly discuss any jealousies and insecurities we experience.
  • It's completly normal to experience that. But then it also depends on how you react to your jelousy as well. When my boyfriend goes out with people that I find attractive or "overly nice" I get jelouse but you need to trust the person to make the best choices even though sometimes it's scary.
  • Not necessarily.
  • Yeah a little. Not so much as I've gotten older. You have to have some trust there.
  • Not easily but I would play that game too if they tried to get me jealous
  • Jealousy is ok to a certain degree, it could even be a little flattering as it show that you care. HOWEVER, out of control jealousy turns a relationship into a jail. You cannot be your self because of the fear that your companion's imagination. What's the difference between a little jealousy and out of control? when your partner has a low self esteem, they are always living in fear of loosing you and this creates jealousy. What people don't realize is that, is that jealousy that makes them loose you. Just went through this situation and it is not easy to deal with. We know what to do, rarely a jealous person will change his/her ways, but when we really care about the person, it is hard to let go, so we keep on trying till we see that it is time to move on.
  • Depends. It depends on how insecure you are the the relationship, and how insecure you are with yourself. Being really jealous is never a good sign, but it's natural to feel a bit of jealousy sometimes.
  • Yes, it depends on how close we are, sexually and emotionally. It would also depend how the person felt about me too.
  • Oh yes, it is easy to do. I know, I am 40 years old and in a new relationship,and tend to get a bit jealous when other ladies look at my man, or touch him - yes i get pissed. But I have learned to deal with it. It does make a difference when you are involved sexually with someone, because you are sharing your body with that person, and to have someone else think that they can take that away from you is understandable when becoming jealous. Its a different thing, if that is not the case. I go through this alot, as my guy is a biker, and we tend to go to alot of biker places ,with females that are "hang arounds". I always have to let them know that he is not to be touched , but i tend to do it nicely first, and then will step in and look at him, to do something before I have to. He thinks that it is cute. As far as having to make him jealous, i dont have to. He watches me like a Hawk!
  • If you are insecure, you will get jealous easily.
  • Nope part of the deal is total loyalty I trust my wife.
  • Not usually...in my opinion it doesn't matter where the water heats up as long as it boils at home!
  • not exactly jealous.. but protective.
  • "love is not Jealous" this means they are not jealous of you. However if someone is flirting with you or you are flirting. Jealousy plays an important role..it shows that the person does not want to loose you.
  • I used to but that really hurts a relationship!
  • I think jealousy is a natural reaction and is somewhat human nature but I also believe that one must be able to control this action/behaviour in order for the relationship wheather it is personal or work related to work... In regards to liking or loving someone I have always felt a little bit of jealousy if I notice some hussy putting her paws on my man... but the closer we become in the relationship the more comfortable you feel with each other and as long as the relationship is strong and both are trustworthy the jealousy for me sems to fade.
  • My feeling is that jealousy comes from a different place than like/love. It comes from our own insecurities about our worthiness to be liked/loved.
  • If I don't trust the person. I generally assume all women to be untrustworthy, so I attempt to avoid having any feeling at all in a relationship to avoid the inevitable hurt.
  • If there is reason to be.
  • No. There is no love in jealousy. Only control and low self-esteem. If you are jealous it is because of something you are doing or thinking. You don't give someone a reason to be jealous, you only give them a reason to re-evaluate the relationship. If you are untrustworthy, you give your partner the oportunity to leave or work things through. There is no jealousy in a healthy mature person.
  • It all depends on who you are as a person. Some people do and others don't. Ask yourself which of these two you might be.
  • yes. it has ruined quite a few relationships.
  • I'm not proud of it, but yes, I can be.
  • Yes...
  • in context of s.o not really in context of friends, somewhat. i hate when my best friend blows me off for the latest flavor of the week. i'll get upset if i get flaked out on. now if they had prior plans no problema but when i get a call cancelling our plans in 5 minutes because she got asked out...no...
  • No, mostly not. Rarely, a green-eyed monster appears out of the blue, but I usually beat it off with a stick. It really hates the stick :)
  • I am not the jealous type, so no.
  • oh absolutely, its usually cause you tend to fear , therefore you will probbely get jelouse easily.
  • You may get jealous if there are people who threaten the devotion of your lover, but I don't think you will get jealous easily. You probably won't be jealous of someone who has a better pencil than you and you probably won't be jealous of someone who gets to use the bathroom ahead of you ;)
  • YUP!! Even if it's over dumb stuff....i wish i wasn't the jealous type! lol
  • No, i often see my crush talking to my friend almost all of the time but i don't do anything, i just try to forget.
  • I'm not a jealous type person. I live by the motto: If you wanna go, GO. You can/will be replaced.
  • Yes is more like possesiveness. Its due to fear of losing.
  • Not usually.
  • no matter how you feel about they if there are feelings there you will be jealous!
  • Jealous, no. Annoyed? VERY
  • I am a jealous person in my relationships meaning if i see you looking at someone eles i'll be mad but no in that situation i would be happy for the person that something good is happening in their life even if nothing in mine is
  • Yes i am a jealous person, and if i wanted to be married i would be very jealous.
  • is this happening to you?
  • I'm not jealous of material things. I get jealous relationship-wise. Only with people I have crushes on/boyfriends, etc
  • I'm jealous of people who have traveled to so many countries. I wanna be like them.
  • Not any more, I hate that feeling, it eats at you. I worked through it and am secure in the knowledge that I am a pretty good catch. I also believe that if I am involved with someone, I am not in control of their actions and really don't want to be. If they choose to be with someone else, well, that's their choice. I also have the choice to put up with it or get out of the relationship. I also believe that if I get paranoid about someone cheating, I will subconsciously contribute to that result through my behavior so I'd rather concentrate on enjoying the relationship, that's why we have relationships in the first place, right?
  • sometimes but not most of the times.
  • jealousy is one of those useless emotions i have never had the time for
  • I would not be jealous. Instead I would think about most marriages ending in divorce and having to give up 1/2 your money (if you live in California) in the divorce settlement.
  • Not at all. In fact, as some others have mentioned, it's nearly caused my s/o to think I didn't care. On the contrary, I enjoy it when she is experiencing pleasure, whether it's from me or not. Whether she's getting attention in a sensual way or just spending time with someone else platonically, I enjoy talking about her visit with her later. Having experiences apart from one another gives us unique perspectives, interesting things to discuss and helps us develop our character. Jealousy just causes too much drama.
  • Maybe I can answer that when you stop looking at everyone else first.
  • Absolutely not. I never have been. I can't see the point in it.
  • Way too often.
  • When I was younger, yes. I think it speaks to one's self-opinion and confidence.
  • No not really. I don't like the feeling so I avoid it at all costs.
  • I am a jealous person. If I wasn't then I wouldn't have soul.
  • not really dont have anything to be jealous of
  • Jealous and envious and I HATE IT!!!! Insecure is a better word. I have no cause to be jealous but I am because I think that my guy is looking to trade-up. I have been envious of at least three girls in my life who were nothing but nice to me. Well, one was a slut and a c__t and she pissed me off, but she had pretty hair and all the "stoopit" guys were all on her shiz, knowing she was a user, slut and a crack whore. The sad part is that I didn't even like the men we mutually knew; it just pissed me off that men can be so stupid and shallow how they make a fuss over a tramp. However, I'm sure that unconsciously I wished I was getting that kind of attention at that time. Hey, I know when to call myself out....I don't like it but I'll admit it!
  • death is better than hate
  • Definately not.
  • Yes sometimes, I tend to be possessive of things that are mine. Not healthy but it's me.
  • Sadly yes. Can't help being a green eyes monster at times.
  • Sometimes it all depends on the situation.
  • xxxx's and ooooo's
  • Yeah I Can Say I have Gotten Jealous Over Someone.
