Signs a Guy Is Jealous
He begins to not care
When you are talking about doing something with your guy friends or maybe you are bringing up your ex boyfriend and he gets really silent acts like he doesn’t care, this is probably a sign he’s jealous. It’s easier for him to act unsupportive and silent than actually speak up to say he doesn’t like what you are discussing.
He attempts to cut you off
When a guy feels jealous, it is because they feel threatened that something can take you away from him. One way for him to handle this may be to try and cut you off from the people by who he is threatened. Another approach is that he manipulates you to think he isn’t not worth your time. His goal with this is for you to distance yourself so that he can feel more secure.
He becomes obsessed with you
Women love being chased and adored, but sometimes it can go too far. If you feel your guy is getting too clingy and obsessed with spending time with you, this may be one of the signs a guy is jealous. Since he is seeking reassurance from you, he will likely text or call more often and demand your attention. You should definitely discuss things with him at this point and sympathetically approach the issue since he is likely feeling jealous.
He begins to blame you
While he is feeling insecure and jealous, he may attack you with accusations and try to make you feel guilty. Many times, guys in this situation get defensive and go on the attack. He may want to blame you for his insecurities. Before things escalate and feelings get hurt, try to bring it up honestly to get to the bottom of his feelings. Sure there are things you can do to help, but he needs to be upfront and not just turn all the blame on you.
He always wants to tag along
For the most part, this may be harmless since women typically enjoy when their guy accompanies them everywhere. However, if it gets to the point where he doesn’t want you to go anywhere alone, then he may be acting out of jealousy. Be aware of his reluctance to let you go somewhere without him since it may stem from his lack of trust and security. This is a serious issue you will need to address for the relationship to grow in a healthy manner.
He needs you to reassure him
Learning to read signs a guy is jealous is helpful to keep the relationship honest and open. In this case, you feel that you show him all the time how much you love and care for him, but for some reason, he needs more validation. He may not be super jealous and just have low self-esteem, but keep an eye on this as time goes on. You don’t want him to get to the point where he is aggressive with demanding your love.
He becomes passive aggressive
One way of dealing with his jealousy or feelings of insecurity for him is to act passive aggressive. He may make sarcastic comments when he is feeling jealous or perhaps he even turns angry and grumpy. Your guy may not know how to express his true feelings, so he’ll act rude in order to prove to you he doesn’t like what you’re doing. Don’t tolerate this as it’s not fair to you. Be direct and approach him honestly to get to the bottom of issue.
He wants to know where you are
When a guy is jealous, he will feel motivated to know where you are at all times and get upset when he can’t get in touch right away. Surely this is something that can be addressed as long as he does not get too angry or violent. If you both care, then work together to help him with his jealous issues without compromising your own independence.
He gets mad if you talk about others
If he is the jealous type, then he will likely become unhappy or frustrated when you are excited to talk about someone else even if you are talking about a girlfriend. It is certainly valid if you talk about a specific person all the time, but if you notice he gets upset or mad when you describe things you like about other people, then that’s not good. It is one of the signs a guy is jealous.
He stalks your social media account and brings up comments or photos from your wall all the time.
Whenever you are texting or talking on your phone, he tries to look over your shoulder.
He almost freaked out in public because he thought someone was flirting with you.
The clothes you wear are too revealing for him because he doesn’t want others to notice you.
When you are at events together, he doesn’t give you any space and just follows you around.
