If you once spent a lot of time pining and wishing for a girlfriend, you might be over the moon when you finally end up in a relationship. That’s only natural! Of course you’re going to be happy about being with her. However, don’t let that happiness sour and turn into something else. Without even realizing it, you can quickly become a stereotypical jealous boyfriend. If you spot yourself engaging in one of these envy driven activities, you need to put on the brakes! These are the signs of a jealous boyfriend.
You question her about every guy she meets.
Are you always suspicious about the guys that your girlfriend meets? Do you grill her with questions each time she wants to hang out with one of her guy friends? That’s pretty intrusive of you! You need to back off a bit because you’re coming on too strong. Think about it. If your girlfriend did this to you, you would have good reasons to think she was being clingy. Don’t do it!
You can’t help snooping through her things.
When you find yourself sneaking around and snooping in her stuff, you know you’ve gone too far. Breaching her privacy for signs of infidelity is a huge sign of a jealous boyfriend. You need to trust her! Trust that she’s going to be faithful to you. If you can’t trust her, why are you with her? It’s the foundation of your relationship. You better not do this if you want it to last.
You worry about who she’s texting all the time.
When her phone buzzes and she reaches to responnd to a text, what goes through your brain? Do you panic and think she’s texting another guy she’s sleeping with? Unless you know she has a reason to cheat on you, you really shouldn’t be worrying. She’s probably just chatting with one of her girl friends. Worrying about her text messaging is going to give you gray hairs!
You demand she tell you who she’s with.
When she leaves your sight and goes to hang out with people, how do you react? Are you calm and relaxed, or do you freak out? If you absolutely must know who she’s with at all times, you’re going a step too far. That’s being much too jealous. She’s not going to appreciate that. Try to control your emotions. Let her do her own thing!
You act like you own her time.
Finally, think about how you act when it comes to how she spends her time outside of social settings. Do you think she should always want to be with you? Do you get angry thinking about her doing something without you? If so, that’s a big warning sign that you need to slow down and think. Why do you feel that? Answering that might help you, because you’re clearly feeling jealousy. Back off a little and things will be fine.
