When we are in a relationship where one partner is jealous, it creates a situation that is very stressful. Most of us have no idea how to deal with jealousy in a relationship and it often causes the relationship to come to a terrible end. There are however ways that you can deal with jealousy in your relationship and steps that you can take to help put your partner at ease.
You need to look at why your partner is displaying jealousy. Is it something that you have done that causes them to feel jealous of those you are around? Do you flirt with others in front of your ex? If this behavior is caused because of something that you are doing than you need to figure out why you are creating this behavior. Do you enjoy getting attention from those around you? Do you like that your partner gets jealous? Does it make you feel loved? If you are doing things on purpose either consciously or sub consciously than you need to work on changing your behavior.
You may find that your partner displays jealousy because of something that happened to them in the past. Were they cheated on? Were they lied to? These are all things you should look at when you have a partner who is always jealous of those who you are around. Now I do not advocate paying for the sins of those who have come before you but if you want to make your relationship work, you are going to have to prove to your partner that you are not that person who lied to them or cheated on them.
If your partner displays jealousy when you are out in public, one way to help them to overcome it is to show affection to your partner while you are in public. Making sure you are respectful to those around you, you can show your partner that you are proud to be with them and they have no reason to be jealous. Put your arm around them, tell them how great the look, introduce them to your friends. Doing such small things will go a long way at helping your partner overcome their jealousy.
If your partner is jealous when you go out with your friends, one thing you can do is call or text them while you are out. They are not jealous of your friends, they are jealous of the amount of time you spend with them and they feel that they are unimportant. Make them feel important to you. It only takes a few seconds to send a text to tell them you can’t wait to see them and it may just save your relationship.
Having a partner who is jealous is very difficult, but if you really love your partner you need to be creative and find ways to overcome the jealousy. I have listed just a few ways but there is so much more you can do and it really comes down to each individual relationship. So get creative and most of all show your partner that you really do love them.
