I met this girl only for 1 day and I'm already jealous, is this normal?
I'm 24 and in my college I was part of a charity event and I was paired up with this girl to plan out details and stuff for the event. Since we were charity partners on a Saturday I invited her to my apartment and we ended up spending the whole day together and we did charity stuff and just hung and shared eachother interest like talking, movies, youtube videos etc. We had a lot in common and we talked a lot and I even ended up telling her I thought she was really cool and nice and I can see myself dating her, and she said that she can see herself dating me also and is open to it. Were not dating because I had to go back home to my state. She lives in Washington and I live in Florida but if I ever do go back to Washington she would want to. So for now we just stayed in touch as friends. We only hung out that one time at my apartment.
The next day when I was looking on her instagram she had pictures of herself with this guy and they were really close and in the comments they were really friendly and other guys like her and are chasing her and I already started to feel jealous/threatened. Its not like she's my girlfriend or anything and we haven't even dated, all we have done was express a common attraction, Were just friends and thats it.
Then why do I feel jealous, especially when I only hung with her for 1 day, I feel I shoudnt feel this feeling of jealousy especially when I only know her for 1 day and we aren't even dating and she's not my girlfriend. I feel guilty for feeling jealous like I'm some kind of entitled little shit head.
Is something wrong with me, why am I having a hard time with this and why do I feel like this has a bigger impact on me then it should. Why does it take only 1 day with her to affect me this much. I mean I'm not like this with other girls I have hung with or went on casual dates or anyhting, why does this one person have this weird affect on me.
I want it to stop because its so confusing and its frusturating me and I dont know what to do.

It happens, no matter what you tell yourself.
I can relate though. I am the same way. There is absolutely no way to control feeling like that. It sucks.0
