On asking their opinion about it, here’s what different guys had to say about the things their girlfriends do that makes them jealous!

Sometimes, I feel that she has a bigger and better circle of friends than me, which makes me look a little lonely. I know it’s strange and petty, but it’s true.

My girlfriend’s best friend is a guy and I don’t feel comfortable about it. They have been friends for years and I can’t even say anything about it because that would make me sound like insecure scum. But tbh, it just makes me feel really jealous when she shares so much with him. I completely trust her, but I am not sure about him.

“Sometimes, she takes a whole day to reply to my text messages. I mean, how hard can texting be, right?

I’m not bothered about flirting at all. I just don’t get how her cat becomes a bigger priority than me. Yes, I’m jealous of her damn cat!”

When she makes me attend a party with her, and then completely abandons me after meeting her friends. It makes me go mad.


She is a social butterfly! She uploads a lot of selfies and other pictures on her Instagram. I get jealous of all those people who get to see her pictures and track her whereabouts. I just can’t take it when some random guy comments on her pictures.
