Thanks for MHO!
Well said 👏🏼 I think that sometimes it's actually not a matter of jealousy, but a matter of concern... For example, if a guy has a girlfriend, but told another girl wearing bikini or underwear in a narcissistic selfie, that she has delicious body, isn't that a natural reaction of concern rather than jealousy?
@StarsInTheEyes yes you're right.
@Goodwife Thank you!@OlderAndWiser said it well also
Thanks for the MHO

I stopped reading when you said "I forgave her" which is code for I stayed with a cheater and took her back. The story went stupid at that point and I chose not to read whatever misery came your way after making that weak, idiotic decision.
@Miristheiss Yes, that was weak and idiotic, but I had to learn that at some point...
Glad you learned.
I would to run into her one day. I will show her what a real man is
True or not, this is off topic and mean.
It's just a question like she made, it isn't mean, it's honest.
@AngelicEmpress She isn't being slutty. Women who express their sexuality aren't slutty.
It's not off topic. It actually hits so many issues with the original question.
So 20 % have succeeded?
@HaleyArnold Well that is debatable at times too, but
Nope, some people get jealous over nothing.
@wolfcat87 Some, not all. There's a lot of people out their that deserves their S. O. getting pissed because of what they're doing/allowing/partaking in. Like a partner that allows people to flirt with them for instance... instead of shutting it down, they treat it as good and just get flirted with more, with escalation. Not saying all, but 'some' cases are simply not over nothing... even if the one making their partner jealous just disagrees and sees the flirting as beneficial rather that detrimental. Partners both have their own set of boundaries. Personally I'm fine with getting blow jobs by other women, but my woman isn't (her boundary). If I simply don't respect her boundaries why should she respect mine... I'd say she has a right to get jealous/pissed. Extreme example, but the principle is the same.
Hmm, I love to flirt. In my case though, I have had a guy get jealous because I mentioned the trucking business of a guy I dated for 2 months about 15 years ago. We have not even seen each other in over 10 years! He went off the rails! I have no romantic feelings for the ex, and we ended pretty quickly on a friendly note. I don't even flirt with him. lol. So, I felt that was a pretty extreme reaction that was highly illogical. It should be fair to bring up the business expertise of an old friend, in the context of a conversation on starting new business ventures, without someone losing it.
@wolfcat87 Yeah, some just get triggered more than most. Something else I've noticed is a cheater can be triggered happy by a glance or mention of an ex 15 years ago, same goes for the 'bad experience in the last relationship' type (damaged goods)... anyways, point is yes, sometimes the overt jealousy is just uncalled for (generalized assumptions) or stemming from a guilty conscious. Like a girl that gets mad that I admit I jerk it to porn one week, then come to find out she mutually masterbates on cam with guys. But I also see a lot of cases where the girl or guy is obviously heading towards cheatville under the guise of "He's/she's just a friend," with 'trust' being used as a guilt trip to allow it... then they end up cheating proving the 'just jealous' party involved completely right.
@Giggletr0n Like you, I don’t have a jealous bone in my body. I was proud of it. It’s not natural, I worked hard at it when I was young. Now I’m told that it comes across like I don’t care. Which of course is not true at all. I don’t try to understand them, but maybe a cheat sheet or something would be nice. 😁
Jealousy is so bad it destroys everything
@vald9inches ah thank you!😊
