Here’s WHY We DON’T get JEALOUS
First of all, why should we be anyway? While that’s a rhetorical question, you actually should re-assess your reasons for feeling bothered by this circumstance. Just because we don’t react when you hang with your guy friends, freely allow you to go out, and take pride in compliments thrown your way, it doesn’t mean we don’t care for you. We don’t need to restrict you or manhandle you for you to feel that you are loved, in the same way that you don’t need to push our buttons just to make us jealous and feed your needy self.
Instead of wondering and worrying why we seem too cool and complacent, try to see it in a positive light. We’re letting you live your life to the fullest and we have no intentions of breeding a brat for a girlfriend. Don’t wish for a guy who would lock you up just because he’s insecure about you interacting with other men, or because he can’t stand seeing you excel in your chosen field of work. You wouldn’t want that. Your worth shouldn’t be measured by how a guy wants you to act.
Here’s what you should know:
We’re not jealous because we trust you. We’re not jealous because we believe you have enough sense to avoid doing anything that would put our relationship at risk. We’re not jealous because we know you’re a wellmannered woman who can handle herself well. We’re not jealous because call it egotistical, but compliments you get from other people make us look good, too. We’re proud of you.
If at the end of the day these reasons still don’t put you at ease, the best thing to do is open up about it. Let us know you need to feel more loved and wanted. Make a compromise. We don’t need to be jealous to express our love, and neither do you.
