6 signs your woman is jealous

19 February 2015, 18:43 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  Possessive, jealous, selfish might be cute and adorable in the beginning of a relationship but soon enough the novelty of it wears off as you get back to being like a normal couple soon after the honeymoon phase. What might have been attractive becomes unattractive and makes the other person wish you will change. Then you start wondering why they are trying to change you when they did not seem to mind before.

That is because as much as a man wants to feel like he is still wanted by his girlfriend, it does not mean he wants her to be his 24/7 watchdog. Like chocolate or alcohol or pizza, if you had it the whole day, every day; you will get sickly and soon enough it turns you off and makes you nauseous- that should get the point across. No one wants to make the person they like/love feel nauseous in their presence and that is what turns some relationships sour. When the girlfriend is clingy; how do you know if you are clingy?

You resent that his life does not revolve around you

If you want to go shopping, you want his company. If you want to go eat, you want his company. If you want to go out, you want his company. If he wants to watch a game, you want him to talk to you. If you call him and he is watching a movie, you do not like the fact that he chooses to put you on pause rather than the movie.

Be a girlfriend that can keep herself busy if he is not around. Maintain your circles so that if he wants to watch a game and you want to go to a movie, you can do that just with different company.

You do not want to give him space

If you are not a morning person you will understand this one. Sometimes I wake up, I am awake but my head is just not right yet, so I zone out. If you try to talk to me I will just stare at you blankly. You will get angry because I am intentionally ignoring you and blocking you out. That is the same as relationships and people needing their space at times. At times people just need time to be in their own heads.

At times we just like a break from a person, not because we like them less but we do not want their rejuvenating properties to run out.

You think everyone is bad influence for him

Because they want to maintain the weekly ritual of the local pub. Or they want to go for a road trip where the girlfriends are not included. So you are the one that thinks maybe so and so is actually not good influence as they are not instilling homestead and home staying virtues but are encouraging him to continue behaving like a bachelor.

You want to constantly work on the relationship

Some people do not like it when things do not go there way, thus they are constantly trying to fix what is not yet broken. In the case of the clingy girlfriend, she feels that they do not spend enough time together. She becomes suspicious.

If he spends one weekend away at his house rather than hers, then something is up.She tries to find ways for them to make their schedules synchronize so that if they are not at work then they are together.

You do not like his pretty friends

It can be just a friend, a colleague, a long-time family friend… but it makes you uncomfortable when he tells you that they are going to spend time together. Sometimes it can be suspect, yes, especially when it is a ritual but at times it can be just that a get together to catch up. Do not look for something where there is none.

Constant texts and phone calls

I have a friend who is in a new relationship, she complains when the guy does not send a good morning text and follow it up the whole day. Then there is the friend who has been in a long committed relationship, the man texts all the time and calls when he knows it is her lunch hour. She says he is annoying and does not know how to tell him to reduce without hurting someone’s feelings. These are two contrasts, the thing is about finding balance.

Wanting constant attention does not make you a loving girlfriend but a spoilt brat, people have things to do during the day. If he sends a good morning good but do not expect that he now wants to sit by the phone chatting the whole day. If he forgets then you can cool off and call to say goodnight not complain on why he did not. Unless you want to encourage stalker tendencies.
