I think its 50/50. Men and women are both jealous when it comes to the one you love. In the past I've heard a lot of men say that women are just too jelous. But men are just as jealous as women. Take my boyfriend for example, if I say an actor is cute on television he gets upset. I think he is a little more jealous than I am. Don't get me wrong, I get jealous every once in a while. Honestly I dont think I have anything to worry about. I know thats a bit cocky, but if something is wrong in the relationship I'll know it.

Hi I personally feel women are more jelous compared to men. A women cannot take it to hear a man complimenting on anohter womans beauty. I have seen mans that are sportive in this manner. In relationship, i think you will be jelous in love. You can be a man or a woman but you cant give away your loved once. Thanusha

No offence to any men or women but truth be told i think that women are way more jealous than men could be. Firstly a man never gets jealous of a woman , no matter what . It happens only very rarely that a man is jealpous of a woman. However a man could be jealous og another man on his success. I totally support this. Now taking women they are not only jealous of other women but also jealous of men. SO summing it up i think it is women who always have an edge over men in being jealous.

i would say that gals used to be jealous more than men...because men has the ability to take situation as sportive and they wont they it to their heart ...but gals are not so they will take things to their heart so this makes them feel jealous on others.... they always believe on themselves.... so that make them feel jealous if some one is higher then them

I think it totally depends on individual, it has nothing to do with if you are boy or girl , it depends upon your nature and how mature you are . If you have strong feelings for your mate and you cant see him/her with anyone else then you , you are bound to feel jealous but on the other hand if you understand that your partner need to hang around with his/her friends too ... may be professionally or just because we all have friends and need to spend time with them , you wont feel jealous . People who feel jealous are not that much confident about their relationship ..thats my viewpoint ..they don't trust their partners or may be they are just to attached and emotional to let their partners interact with other .. they may have sense of insecurity . So the question of who is more jealous cannot be answered until and unless you know the nature of the person ..it may be a he or a she .

Well i think men do get jealous from women more than a woman does get. Men cant see their women with other man, they dont like their women talking about other guys around them.. More over ofcourse men do get jealous of women who earn and earn more than them infact. they start feeling insecure and a bit sarcastic too at times. i think women never get jealous of men so easily happy mylotting.

On my opinion, women jealous most of the times compare to men. Although I've never been into a deep relationship, I had a friend with an awesome girlfriend who jealous every girls that his boyfriend see. Even if that they are ugly or what and not worth to be jealous with. They always having a fight about this jealousy but glad to know they ended it always.

both!there is no 'men or women' here..basically a man and a woman have the same set of emotions....it's onle how he or she expresses it...women tend to be more emotional ;hence they are judged as more prone to be overly jealous as viewed by society...but actually they are just the same!!!!men can be overly jealous,too!...

Jealousy is part of every relationship. In my own opinion girls are more prone to jealousy than men. Girls are very sensitive and very emotional. No offense meant to women in general. I just based my opinion on my own personal experiences.

Same here, i think a little bit of jealousy her and there is okay, he doesn't like have to get THAT jealous over a celebrity, it was just a comment. Most of the time, he'd get back at me with some of the actresses and i do feel a tinge of jealoursy but it stops there...Well it's normal since they're our bf and we're their partners and it feels strange having your guy/girl talking about how hot another man/woman is....haha, like you i don't think i have anything to worry about..I don't think it's cocky of us to think so, it just means that we trust our men..^_^

Of course women. What doubt in it? Your boy friend's case is different. It is "possessiveness" not jealous. If he talks about a girl other than you, even you will get the same.

Hi there Learning and welcome to mylot. I am a woman and I have found that men can be just as jealous as the women they complain about. Some of the men I have dated are ridiculous with it. I don't tend to get jealous easily at all and I don't really understand it. It's funny because I'm not the most self confident person but I just don't go assuming that someone is going to cheat or anything. One thing that I have found is that often when someone is overly jealous...they are the one that is actually doing the cheating.

I think no comparison. All women and men when in the fits of jealousy acted the same, only that, their attitude differ to some degree, but they are the same.

I think that both men and women get jealous equally. There are many things that could spur jealousy, such as if a guy in a relationship is super friendly with other females, or if a guys girlfriend always gets alot of attention when she goes out. However I think also jealousy can come from being insecure in a relationship. When you know that you and your partner trust eachother and would never let anything come between that, why would you be jealous of anything they do? Makes sense to me

I think it is 50/50 too. I mean it depends on the person if they are jealous or not. My boyfriend is not jealous at all and there are times when I can be jealous. In my relationship I can be the one who is jealous, but it also goes back to my past experiences and past relationships and he understands that.
