Jealous behaviour

"YOU’RE MINE!"


Feeling that your partner is bothered by the attention you receive from someone else can be flattering at first, because it seems to demonstrate their attachment to you. But jealous behaviour isn't proof of love.

A few examples of jealous behaviour:
  • Punishing a partner by pouting
  • Calling their pager or cell, or calling their friends' house, several times a day
  • Questioning them: "Where were you?" "What were you doing?" "With whom?" “Were you really with them? Do you have proof? Can I check?”

"I'M BEHAVING JEALOUSLY. WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

When does it happen? For example, “When they go out with their friends without me.”

Do you have proof? What exactly makes you doubt them?

Having your own life, friends, and activities helps get your mind off things!

"I have this movie playing in my head…" Imagining scenes in which your partner cheats and lies won’t help. Why not change the channel?

Sharing. Take the time to talk to and listen to your partner.

Against the grain. If your behaviour seems to be leading you towards a break-up, why not try other options?

"WHY DON’T THEY BELIEVE ME?"

A few thoughts for partners:

Your secret garden. You don’t have to give in to all your partner's requests or justify everything. You have the right to have your own personal life and so do they.

Life goes on. Would you be comfortable avoiding activities or friends to please your partner? And would that really solve the problem?

Together, it’s better! You can help your partner by asking them what they expect of you all the while respecting your own limits.
