Whenever I date a guy (even when we're not together) I like I always get paranoid that he's seeing someone else too. I know that it's completely fine if you're not together but I still freak out about it. Also, when I get rejected by guys I like I go crazy, like I can't stop pestering them and get angry/annoyed that they don't like me and I become very emotional about it. I think I get attached too fast.
I know it's really selfish to act and feel like this and I know it's not healthy, but would it be worth going to therapy about it?

Take it from someone that has been to therapy for a long time. It is an excellent thing to do regardless of issues. but in your case I think it is really needed. Jealousy is a horrible issue in any relationship. You have to have complete trust in your partner. Unfortunately, there are POS's out there that cheat. But you can't worry about that or it will simply destroy the relationship. If I had a woman that was acting that way I would end it immediately.
But if you haven't been to a therapist before just keep in mind sometimes it takes time to find the right one. if after 2-3 sessions you are not at ease with the person, change to someone else.
also, a good therapist is going to call you on your shit. Don't expect a therapist to always take your side and try and help you rationalize things. If what your doing is bullshit, he/she will call you on it.4

What helped me LOADS with some of my issues was group therapy. There were two professional therapists to help the conversation along, and about 6 other people in the group seeking help. We just talked about our problems to each other and gave support and advice, and once in a while the therapists would chime on.
It was really good for me. The environment is non judgmental and everyone sincerely wanted to support each other. It can be hard to open up to strangers at first, but once the ice is broken, everything flows easily. People all have different suggestions and viewpoints, and it's a lot more friendly than just sitting in a room talking to one therapist. Actally, most of the time, it was fun and constructive. I highly recommend looking into it2
