I've been dating this guy and things are going great. We just recently decided to become exclusive and I love it. However, I feel like I am going crazy! For some reason I have become obsessed with talking to him and I look at all the things he's liked on social media, I get jealous if he likes another woman's photo (even if I KNOW she is married to someone and they are purely just friends). I have become really insecure and I don't know how to change it. I know it's not him because he makes me feel more beautiful than anyone ever has, but I guess I'm just afraid of losing him. I feel like if I keep getting upset over stupid things (i take jokes personally, get upset when he misses plans even if he had no control, ect) that I'm going to drive him away. He has been really understanding about all of this because he has said that he has gotten jealous too, but I don't expect him to keep just taking my bs and being fine with it. How can I change this? I don't want to feel so obsessed I don't want to ruin out relationship and it's taking a toll on my mental wellbeing.

My girlfriend who i've also not been dating for too long, often feels the same way to some extent I think. I can't speak for all guys, but I feel some of the same feelings for her, and totally understand. Because we are on a similar page with our anxiety, I can understand how she feels and am able to empathize, and not get annoyed. I really just look at it as a way of her showing how much she cares. Unfortunately, I can't speak for all guys, but that's at least how I am. If I were you, I would talk to your boyfriend about it and just completely open up. If it makes you uncomfortable, at least he'll know.

Add something to do so you won't miss him
Example, I like cycling. So doing that will keep me busy0
