Dating jealous girl
I asked a gaggle of dating, love, and relationship experts how to tell if your partner has unhealthy jealousy, and they shared these very clear and present signs of such suspicious actions or behaviors, from being emotionally dependent to wanting you to act a certain way, that you can be on the lookout for in your own relationship.
Hopefully you don't find anything of the sort, but now you know what to look out for."It can feel romantic and passionate when your partner wants to spend every waking moment alone with you, especially when love is new, but that kind of intense isolation is often a red flag," Boykin says.
Do they stare at you while supposedly having a discussion with someone else? "Perhaps you need to rethink your relationship with that person, or at the very least let a close friend in on the situation," he says. "If your partner is keeping tabs on your social media activity — namely who you follow, friend, like, or comment on, chances are there are some jealousy issues," life coach Kali Rogers tells Bustle.
"If you decide you love opera and your partner decides to start mocking operas, well, that is a form of jealousy," she says.
You may be able to nip it in the bud if you address it right away."Your relationship partner crosses the line into unhealthy jealousy when they start making demands regarding your behavior," certified relationship coach Rosalind Sedacca tells Bustle.
"Is your partner expecting you to do or not do certain things according to their desires? "Do they feel justified in controlling your actions? "Are you afraid to confront your partner about these demands for fear of conflict or physical response?
"Don't ignore this really big red jealousy flag: Suddenly your partner stops doing things that he or she really used to love to do, because the anxiety level about leaving you unattended is astronomical." Though it may feel good to have your boo overly interested in your life at first, be careful if this interest heads over to dangerous territory."When your partner freaks out because you’re out without [them], and [they] can’t reach you, [they've] got an unhealthy streak of jealousy," New York–based relationship expert and author April Masini tells Bustle.
"When [they] blame you for not checking in with [them], not picking up your phone when [they] call and basically insinuate you’re cheating on [them] because you’re out without [them'], [your partner is] not acting in a healthy way." You have to be able to live your life.
