Original Visitor's Question from a 41-50 year old Male
In all of the questions I have read on your site, you never answer the question of steps to take to deal and get over jealousy. We all know what it is and that trust is an essential element in a relationship. But how do we get over being jealous? What are the steps? How do we get over our insecurites?
User Submitted Advice from a 21-30 year old Female
jealousy is insecuritie's best friend. I know because I am jealous, but i put it down to insecurity about myself. it sucks! that is probably why i had avoided a real relationship because when i actuarlly CARE about someone i get jealous, maybe i'm not pretty enough or cute enough, and although I once remember a time when my ego prevailed, I am trying to cope with this now, and having a flirtatious boyfriend doesn't help. - Amanda
