Are you a jealous person? I read somewhere that a person who is in love is always insecure? Is this true? I believe in this to some extent but not entirely. I think that if you love someone you trust him/her completely and also in a relationship people both parties should exert effort to let each other feel and know that they are loved.

Not of my spouse actually. See when we love someone we should be able to trust them to be true to us. This trust will be there if the love is true. Like they say if you love someone let them free if they truly love you they would come back to you. If they did not then it is better they dont come back. Now if you hold sand in your hand tightly. It will flow through your fingers . Now if you hold it loose it will stay in your hand . That applies to a relationship too....

I don't think a person who is inlove is a jealous person. Jealousy will only knock in your door once you have no trust to your partner or vice versa. Or you see something wrong with your partner that you are capable of being jealous of. I am really not a jealous type of person since I don't see any reason to be jealous with. I am very much secur of the love that I am receiving. So why need to be jealous? It will only ruin the relationship if I will be affected by that.

Typically a jealous person is one who can't be trusted. The know they can't be trusted so they don't trust others. If you have a strong relationship there is no reason to be jealous. If you don't have trust in the one you are with there is either a problem with them or you and there is no reason to continue in the relationship. In true love there is no jealousy.

I'm not a jealous person, and I kind of see it as a useless emotion (if unavoidable, in some cases). I have excellent communication with my partner and we discuss things, keep things open, and don't really have anything to be insecure about, regarding our relationship. I'd love to have a prettier face, better health, and tons of disposable income, but those aren't things that I can change, necessarilly, so I don't bother with getting upset that other people have that. There are always the nigglings, but I don't let them get out of control before they're addressed. Another one of those emotional balancing acts.

I don't think I'm that jealous of a person and that stems from trusting my husband. If he gave me something to worry about I might be jealous. But, he's a good husband and has never done anything to make me not trust him. So, I find that there is no need to be jealous. He married me for a reason.

I would have to say that I am sort of jealous. My boyfriend has a lot of female friends and it kind of bothers me. He's even still good friends with his ex girlfriend and that really bothers me. Of course, he doesn't understand why and I really am setting a double standard of sorts because most of my friends are men. Oh well.
