Are you a jealous type?

They say jealousy is part of the relationship, but up to what extent. Is there a way to get rid of jealousy, is it really existing or "it's just in the mind". Sometimes I think it is not healthy for a relationship anymore because it is one of the factors that destroy a relationship.

I think that I used to be more of a jealous type than I hope I am now. I have this awfully deep need to be liked, which also translates into needing to find someone with whom I can feel like I am the most important person to them. This of course leads easily to feelings of jealousy. But! I really have grown in the past few years. Now, with my belief that everything in life happens for a reason, it really does make things that hurt me easier to handle, a lot of the time, which also helps with me becoming jealous. Oh, I am sure that i will always hvae a jealous side, though. But I am working on it. I know that being too possessive is not a good thing in a relationship.

Me too, you know, sometimes I want to be the center of attention of the people who I truly cared for. I hate to see them/him with someone else.

Im quite the jealous type but only when i see something that would make me jealous.Like when i see my partner being so close with someone whom i really dont know.You could always see something in their movements or they way they look at each other if theres something going on..so even if my partner would assure me that theres nothing going on I would still be jealous.

Over all its not good on the relationship, but none at all isn't good either. I don't want my husband to lose his mind every time I look at a guy, but it is nice when he notices and dosen't like it. At first he would act like it wasn't a big deal at all, and to be honest, that bothered me. I felt like he didn't care. Silly I know, but a little every now and then let's me know he still cares.
