If so, how?

I think it's natural to feel jealousy but I think jealousy stems from insecurity and lack of faith in your partner. If you're secure in yourself and you trust your partner then what is there to be jealous about?
I think everyone goes through that jealous teenage phase in your first relationship but after that we realize that relationships shouldn't be like that. Relationships shouldn't make us feel bad. They shouldn't make us feel like we need to keep constant surveillance on our partners. Relationships will never be perfect but they shouldn't bring down our lives.
One major lesson I've learned from relationships is that if someone is gonna cheat they'll do it regardless of whether you're watching them or not. In fact being jealous pushes people away more. If you feel you have to be that clingy then either that person isn't right for you or you need to work on yourself before seeking out relationships.

Of course I trust any man I'm 'seriously' dating enough to 'handle his business'.
However, that still doesn't stop the demon inside from saying "what the fu*k does she think she's doing with him?"
Shortly after this "lil demon" speaks, I blank my face and pay attention without staring.
- - I more care about what the woman might try to do. Have had one throw herself at a boyfriend before (she'd been drinking). Literally, right at him to try to kiss him.
* I walked over. Offered to help her to the couch and got her water to sleep it off. - Just let it go. She probably regretted it the next day anyway.
I do get jealous but it's extremely rare for me to show it. At most, it just makes me want him to take me on the spot. Sexually aggressive knowing that he wants ME enough to refuse other women.
He spends more time with his friends or family than with me; sort of jealousy? No.
It's great if he and I do but I'll take what time he and I can get together.
