Wow Wow Wow....mannnnnnnnn, what a smart question you'd produced!!!. About JEALOUS??? Don't worry 'singlepixel', I won't jealous on you because you're my great best friend.....ha ha ha ha ha. Emmmmmm....self-confident and with deep great hope will eliminate jealous feeling in one's mind and heart. You know why, 'singlepixel'? That kind of energy will make us regaining the total energy to 'blast' out our sincerity in combating jealousy. Anyway, jealousy is very good in some area of life as it shows up the feeling of love or likeness towards something or somebody. But if it goes into wrong handling and managing, puuuuuhhhhhhh!!!!!!!.....devastating.....booooooooommmmm!!!!

hi single! i'm the kind of girl who gets jealous easily. but there's always a reason. the thing is, no matter how small the reason is, i have the tendency to make a big deal out of it. ^__^;; i know its not good to be over jealous and one might say that jealousy is out of insecurity, but i just can't help it. whenever i get jealous, i get mad and all i wanna do is talk about the thing or person that got me jealous. only talking can calm me down. but if i'm alone, i would think about what made me jealous again and again until i pity myself that it can get me to crying. i would then scold myself and start thinking of the many reasons why i shouldn't be jealous.

Hi singlepixel! Well, I am a jealous kind of person but I have always been calmed about it whenever that feeling struck me. I just keep quiet and see what happens. Never had taken any drastic actions nor will you see me sulking. No one will even notice that I am being jealous. I just keep it to myself. I will just find ways to be more constructive about it and make the best of the situation. I wouldn't try to dwell on the feeling and just find other things to occupy my mind. Take care and God bless!

jealousy in relationships is something i deal with quite a bit. its not to an extreme where i won't let my husband go out, but i feel, majority of people who do get jealous have self-esteem problems and feel like they'll lose their loved one. my husband only got jealous once in the beginning of the relationship when he was visiting me during my internship and i was somewhat busy and there were a bunch of guys all over me (not in a naughty way, but we were just friends, they thought of me as one of the boys so they fooled around with me alot) but he got jealous. i got jealous when i found out he slept with another girl before we got together, and stayed jealous because we were sort of in the 'courtship' phase of the relationship and i felt jilted of course, but it took almost a year for me to get over it. i don't feel comfortable with myself enough. the best way i can deal with it is letting my husband know when i do get jealous and he reassures me of his love for me and i have to reassure myself that i am good enough, pretty enough and sexy enough to keep him at my side.

I do not have much problems with jealousy, but if I do get jealous I have a habit of removing myself from the situation in an angry manner. Most of the time the people who are making me jealous are his friend's, and that's only because they don't know when to be quiet about girls and I think they only do it to "get him in trouble" so to speak. As for him being jealous of me paying attention to certain things, I just let him know that I love him. I do not pay any attention to any other male but he does get jealous and thinks that I am from time to time. He's pretty good with not being too jealous though. Have a Great day!
