    "Actually my darling, It more than likely shows signs of co dependency and low self esteem, and nothing says I love you like some good old fashioned co dependency and self loathing"
    "I agree, interdependency and confidence are overrated"
    "I am so glad we had this talk, I am off to the bar now"
    "Ok, have fun, but not too much fun, call me every hour so I can confirm you aren't off banging some wench, OH and speaking of wenches, If Mary is there, you come home right away, she is always dressing sexy and I bet she had a tit job. remember.. I love you"

    Jealousy is more exciting than just being caring and supportive. You can be caring and supportive of your friend or your mom. A somewhat controlled jealousy streak, to me, implies a more sexual - and therefore more possessive - interest.

    The closest I've come to jealousy has really been frustration at someone trying to make me jealous. I'm glad I let that one go.

    Edit: unless you guys are talking about the feeling where it seems like something may be wrong and my gut reaction is to talk or walk.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I don't think we are in disagreement necessarily. However, I am apathetic today so I don't particularly care to go further with this.
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.

    What's the deal? Of course, being jealous if someone else hits on your girlfriend / boyfriend and-or if she-he is flirty towards someone else is perfectly "normal" and "healthy". Calling her / him in the middle of the night to check out if he-she's cheating on you while maybe he-she is going through REM phase is obviously "excessive" and "unhealthy". It seems to be a matter of common sense.

    I'm curious then.... what kind of emotion is an expression of selfless love?
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    That's a really ridiculously extreme comparison.

    I think that people who don't get jealous at all might be a bit emotionally cool or afraid of commitment. I can't imagine what it's like to not get jealous at all, it implies to me a lack of passion, seriously.

    I mean if you don't care at all if you lose your mate, then I can't fathom that you're very much in love with them...maybe just killing time by having a relationship, and that seems much more co-dependent to me than being a little jealous in love.

    I've noticed a real trend in the past few decades that people think it's more "mature" or "healthy" to be a loner than to make any kind of sacrifices for a relationship or admit that you have human needs and emotions. I hope you guys understand that it's nothing more than a world view, and there's no proof that being that way is "healthier." To me it actually seems committment-phobic, and in it's extreme forms actually kind of immature, selfish, and isolationist.

    All I said is it has nothing to do with love. Reading compression.

    And it's not ridiculous. Domestic violence is often a result of jealousy.
