I've got a really jealous boyfriend. I've been going out with this guy
for about 3 months. At first it was great but now I'm not so sure. If
I'm talking to another guy or even with my girlfriends he gets mad and
says mean stuff. He said he knows he's jealous and possessive but reckons
that's okay because it shows he loves me. When we're alone he's okay.
What should I do?
The green-eyed monster has got him bad. Tell him you've done nothing to
deserve his anger, so if he doesn't get over it quick sharp, it's over.
If it doesn't get any better, stick to your guns and show him the door!
Angry, jealous boyfriend behavior is not love, whatever he says!
Stupid, stupid boy! Jealousy is very unattractive and not nice when you're
on the receiving end. Ditch him ASAP!
Although it's flattering (sort of) that you raise strong emotions in a
guy, jealousy wouldn't be one I'd want! The problem is that jealousy is
a negative emotion that really doesn't help you or him. If he's trying
to control what you do and who you talk to, you're never going to have
an equal relationship. Healthy relationships are based on trust and respect,
and he's not showing you much of that. It's probably time to end the relationship
unless your jealous boyfriend can learn how to trust you, and quickly.
