No-one's perfect, but that's no excuse to be unreasonably jealous. Us girls are out here tryna shake the 'psycho girlfriend' tag, so help the team and reign in your jealous behaviour a little. If you do these 6 things, then you are a jealous girlfriend. And no, not the kind of jealous where it's justified or shows you care, the kind where 'stalker' pops to mind.
1. You FB Stalk Every Girl He's Dated
...and you stalk them on a regular basis. If you know she went to Paris this weekend, then you've gone way too far. A inquisitive look on your significant other's ex girlfriend's page is normal, not healthy, but normal- to check it daily, and find out even detail about her isn't. There's a reason she's in the past, and that they're not together anymore, so give yourself more credit.
2. You Check When He's Online
WhatsApp and FB messenger are your BFFs because they tell you when he was last active, and therefore if he's ignoring you. Ok, he shouldn't be avoiding your convos but maybe it's for innocent reasons. Or maybe it's because you're an OTT jealous GF who won't let him live.
3. You Lie To Make Him Jealous
So in reality the only guy who hit on you today was the homeless dude who hangs around your neighbourhood, but the version you tell him, it may as well have been Brad Pitt's younger, better looking, brother. Or you lie and say your ex has hit you up. He should already know how lucky he is, jealousy isn't the right way to bring that out of him. Would it make you feel lucky if his ex wanted him back? Or would it make you feel insecure and angry? Yeah, thought so.
4. You Read Into Everything He Does
A friend of mine legitimately uses the 'Find Your Friends' app to stalk her boyfriend's whereabouts. She plans how long his journey home takes to make sure he isn't lying about where he's been. Seriously, not normal or ok. Your other half has a life, and you need to let them live. Imagine how annoying and controlling it would be if someone asked you 100 questions every time you went to the shops.
5. You've Created Fake Profiles
Please, please, please don't do this. If you don't trust them to this extent then the relationship is never going to work, and you need to call it quits. And work on yourself. Seriously.
6. You Snoop
Looked through his phone multiple times? Even rummaged through his trash? Get excited when you get the opportunity to do these things? Then take a long hard look at yourself, because you need a reality check. This is invasion of privacy. This is you ruining the trust, not him.
The green-eyed monster is not a cute look, yes we're all guilty of occasionally getting carried away but if these 6 points are familiar to you, and frequent, then you're an out of control jealous girlfriend. Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self babe.
