    Jealousy is to talk about something you dont have. Envy is to kill for something you dont have.

    Yeah, jealousy isn't proof of love. It's proof of wanting someone's time, attention and company coupled with the fear that, plausibly, your SO could fall for, and eventually exclusively give those things to, someone else.

    Romantic jealousy is a lot more prevalent than friend jealousy because you can and should have more than one friend, but traditionally you should only have one significant other (and often there is only room for one SO in a person's life, if they're seriously committed and in love), meaning that when your SO acquires a romantic interest for someone else, there's a good chance you're, well... out.

    I meant to say that it makes sense that there would be room for only one SO in your life at a time, if you really love that person. But I'm not really sure what you think I meant, or how my perceived meaning implies I've never been in love.

    If you are in love there is no "if"

    I don't understand this at all. If you're in love, then there should only be room for one. "Significant other" has no meaning if you're playing the field. If you're not attached, I can see having feelings for more than one person. But "SO" indicates a commitment.

    Ah ok, SO means significant other. I guessed it meant someone..

    I was just thinking of the definition. Without consulting a dictionary :shines fingernails: I would think:

    jealousy - wanting what a person has and wanting to deprive them of that thing
    envy - wanting what a person has without regard to whether or not you seek to deprive them

    So, if I'm jealous of your status, I want it for myself, but if I'm envious, I just want it; the issue of whether I want them to lose it or keep it doesn't come up.
