I was Jealous, She Withdrew, Now What?
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
We were like a couple before, but officially not, then she changed and acted like nothing was going on between us after we had an arguement about her ex boyfriend, who i was jealous about.
now another problem is building up, my ex girlfriend is communicating with her and i know she is up 2 somthing. i love this girl so much. and she wants to remain friends because i became 2 tight with her.
what should i do? what can i do? help me...
Jealousy can be incredibly destructive, and pull apart a relationship that is otherwise in good shape. So you drove her away with your jealousy, and once she was apart from you, it allowed other forces to start to work - i.e. your own ex.
I would sit down with your girlfriend and apologize for being jealous, and tell her that you've learned a valuable lesson. And that you miss her and want to spend time with her again. If she cares about you, no amount of mis-information coming from your ex will affect her. Girlfriends always take the 'advice of an ex' with a grain of salt, and are suspicous of their motives. So show your girlfriend that you are worthy of another try.
