Everyone gets jealous of someone or something at one point or another in their lives. It is a natural part of life. However, there is a very fine line between jealousy and crazy, so tread lightly. Being jealous means that you feel you have something to lose, but if you are not careful of how you handle the green-eyed monster, you will end up losing it anyway. There are some upsides to jealousy however.

Do you see your guy flirting with other women when you are out with him and feel that hot flush on your face? This could mean that you are ready to take the relationship to the next level. Communicate with him about it and ask him about his thoughts.

If you become jealous and he notices it, what does he do? Does he apologize to you or does he tell you that you are being ridiculous and to get over it? If it’s the latter he may not be as supportive as you think he is and it could just be the beginning.

Jealousy can equal a spark back into the relationship. Some people find that it is a turn on when their partner gets jealous. They see the fight and fire in their eyes when they feel their relationship is threatened and that can make for some fire between the partners.

So why do you feel jealousy? Part of it is because you are human. It is in our nature. Women tend to feel more jealous of other women and wonder if their man is in love with that other person. Men are more apt to interrogate their partner about affairs they think they are having. If you find that you are becoming overly jealous, take a step back, take a deep breath and really think things through. Have a calm discussion with your partner. They may be able to help more than you think.

  1. Jealousy is very distructive and should never be offered as something positive.. this is a very miss-guided article. The prisons are full of inmates who killed, because of jealousy.

  2. Certainly good advice negativity can only be positive if we make a conscious effort to find the positive in the issue at hand, people often think that relationships are about winning – they're not, in fact needing to win will cost you honesty and intimacy in your relationship. If you want the relationship to grow stronger communication is the essential factor that will determine the value of your relationship. Trust breeds strength, winning creates a competition. Remember competition breeds a victor and a loser, if you're the winner – more than likely you have already lost a measure of trust and closeness.
