Handling a Jealous Partner

Many people refuse to admit that they have a jealous streak. It sounds like a weakness. At first it's sweet when your partner gets jealous over you, it shows they care. But what happens when it becomes constant?

When you are always having to explain your whereabouts it stops being sweet and starts to become annoying. You get angry and frustrated and you get into endless fights because they won't hear you when you say that you aren't cheating on them. For the jealous person though, it's not so easy to comprehend, especially if they have been hurt before.

Make no mistake, their insecurities are entirely their own, but if you value the relationship, there are ways to handle a jealous partner. Click on the link and let me know what you think.

As I find this topic fascinating, I will be following this entry up with an article from the other side, entitled How To Handle Your Jealousy. (It is currently in a queue awaiting publication, so it may be a few days before it's ready!)

  1. Very interesting take on the topic. I think that if a person cares about their partner enough to help them through their jealousy, that's great as long as the partner isn't abusive.

  2. I agree. There are a lot of people who will become abusive when they have a jealous streak, but equally there are those who just need some reassurance after a bad experience. That said though, a helping hand is all a partner can give. Eventually, the one with jealous tendencies needs to let go of the past.
