Hey Jealousy

The past is gone but something might be found to take its place…hey jealousy

~Gin Blossoms

In relationships, jealousy is the most powerful emotion (I realized this after reading this post on first date dc).  It’s part love part hate and together they form a mighty combination.  The only problem is that you have to know how to use it.  Once you know you have this great power, it’s easy to abuse.  However, abusing it won’t get you anywhere, instead you have to instill a difficult balancing act.  With that being said, let me show you some examples. 

The obvious example is to talk to another person of the opposite sex when you’re out with your boyfriend/girlfriend, but we can do better than that.  Let’s say you get a phone call, on most dates (if the person means anything to you) you don’t answer, but if him or her is doing the obvious (stated above) you answer.  And when he/she asks you who it is, the best thing you can say is “a friend.”  “A friend” is a critical answer.  It leaves much to desire: was it really just a friend? was it an ex? was it someone they like?…etc.  It gets the mind running which in turn sparks the jealousy flame.  You turn them against themselves by changing the context, which is the key to winning any argument.

Another example, you just broke up with your bf/gf but instead of staying in and mopping you go out.  You see him/her across the bar, but you’re talking to someone else.  So instead of talking to you, your ex asks your friend about the situation (is that her/his new guy/girl? why is he hanging out with her? is she mad at me?).  And what does your friend come back with: “I don’t know,” and now the flame is lit.  So next time you’re in one of these situations, try it.

    That only works if a guys cares about the girls he breaks with or the ones that break up with him. When something ends, I’m 100% over it, because there are more girls out there. No jealousy here, I won’t give any girl that kind of power.
