Making them jealous is NOT the answer

Every tip on here saying that making someone jealous is a good plan is terrible advice. I myself am a jealous person, mainly because all of my closest friends are my girlfriend's closest friends aswell. We were one group of friends, until we got together, and i can tell that i'm driving her away. Making her jealous would just put her through what i'm feeling. It's an immature way to worsen the problem in my opinion. Build up your own self-esteem. That's the only thing that's helping me at the moment. I really hope this helps
