An overtly jealous girlfriend can destroy her relationship with her boyfriend if she begins to view every normal situation, as a potential threat to her relationship. In such a situation how does the boyfriend learn to deal with a jealous girlfriend? Let us find out the ways.
A heart-to-heart conversation with your girlfriend may help in finding out the real source of her jealousy. Maybe, she has had a bitter relationship with her ex who was cheating on her. Once the ‘source’ of her jealousy is established, try to wipe out this fear of ‘losing you’ from her mind.
A jealous girlfriend needs constant assurance. Assure her that there is no ‘threat’ to your relationship especially in the form of another woman. Give her details on your time away from her. Let her interact with your near and dear ones. Talking to the people who know you best may help her realize that her fears are unfounded.
Fear of your ‘female’ friends
A jealous girlfriend’s imagination runs haywire every time she thinks about your ‘female’ friends. Your time away from her is definitely a time out or scampering to your female friends. Introduce her to your circle of friends especially to the female lot. She should be made to realize that you don’t go around scouting for female company the moment you turn your back on her or during her absence.
A role reversal ‘act’
If her overbearing attitude is causing you sleepless nights, just assume the role of a jealous boyfriend. Likewise, call her every hour to inquire about her whereabouts, what she is wearing, who she is with, etc. After a few days of these love (read curious) calls, your jealous girlfriend may realize how irritating and annoying and unnecessary this can be.
If all your methods of dealing with your jealous girlfriend have failed, then it’s time you seek professional advice. Accompany her whenever she goes to meet her counselor or psychologist. An expert’s advice and interference may erase the irrational thoughts and bouts of jealousy from her troubled mind.
Dealing with a jealous girlfriend can be a wearisome time for the boyfriend. Apart from her jealous streak, if you share a good relationship with her, it should become your prerogative to help her get rid of this intense emotion. A little bit of care, love and loads of patience from you will help you in successfully dealing with a jealous girlfriend.
