Is jealousy always a bad thing? I know when it gets to extremes it is but i always like my partner to have some jealousy. It proves they think im worthwhile and others could find me as loveable as they seem to. I always have some for the same reasons. If i find them funny attractive and good to be around so will others. I dont get out of control i dont think but it would bug me if someone i was with had dinner alone with someone they were once in a relationship with. I dont necassarily think they would cheat but that the other one would fall back in love with them or see the same traits as i do and love. Is it wrong to not want your SO to be alone with men(or whoever they are attracted to) one on one in a social setting? I dont think so. Just reading other threads here made me want to ask this :)
Obviously i know it can go to extremes. My current girlfriends ex used to do that. Would quiz her if she was 10 minutes late and be angry. Would secretly read her diary,heck once she even found a tape recorder in a drawer taping her day at home while he was at work. If she was friendly to someone and he saw he would explode and accuse her of wanting to have sex with the man and what not. I can see that as definately negative but slight jealousy seems normal to me and possibly even a positive.
