    Very Jealous - and it bothers me.

    Kind of jealous - depends on the situation.

    Neither of us are jealous at all, and I like it! I once dated a guy who was psycho-jealous (and also abusive), so this is a very refreshing change of pace.

    Jealousy doesn’t always boil down to trust issues, in my opinion.

    I guess he’s not jealous. We’ve never had an issue, but then again I can’t think of a time when I’d give him a reason to be jealous.

    @deetroitwhat:I have the opposite problem, my SO is not jealous about anything. Men hit on me and he does not seem bothered at all. I have only seem him get upset once when I called him scared but this man drove by me three times and got out of the car!

    Neither one of us is jealous at all and I like it that way. I think maybe because it’s been 9 years, and we’ve never ever given each other anything to be insecure about. We both had mild insecurities for the first couple of years, but now, I think I would have to full-on cheat on my husband to make him jealous and vice versa. I’m thrilled we are that secure in our relationship. 

    And I also don’t think jealousy is always a sign of trust issues. I think it’s just an emotion that you feel sometimes; rational or not.

    @deetroitwhat: Me also! I remember one incident–the night before I had thyroid surgery, the ex (was dating him then) called me all pissed off and was telling me I was a whore, etc. This seemed to come out of nowhere, and when I finally asked him WTF his problem was, he goes, “WELL I CALLED YOUR PHONE AND A GUY PICKED UP. TWICE.” Uh, my phone didn’t even ring!

    So yeah, having a sweet and mellow and decidedly un-jealous husband is quite a nice change!

    Mine claims he’s not but he is, but only a little and not unreasonably so.

    I am the ‘jealous’ one of the relationship, Embarassed but it’s because he was married before me, so I feel like I have a lot to live up to

    DH is like the least jealous person I know. He has gotten jealous a couple of times but very rarely. It doesnt bother nor do I like it – I just dont really think about it.

    Fiance isn’t really jealous at all, and it mostly doesn’t bother me.  I can grab lunch/dinner with male friends, talk about a new male coworker constantly, etc. and it doesn’t faze him at all.  I’d never cross a line of inappropriateness, but because we were friends for so long and shared dating stories before we got together, we mostly continue to do that stuff.  He was a lot more jealous when we were “just friends,” for instance when he found out I hooked up with my ex he was so upset.  But ever since we officially got together, he doesn’t worry at all.  It’s mostly sweet, but occasionally I wouldn’t mind a little jealousy.  His attitude is “all these guys can stare at you and want you, but I’m the one who gets to come home with you,” so it’s an ego boost I think.

    dh never said a word about me travelling for work with 2 guy coworkers who happen to be my good friends, so yeah, he doesn’t get jealous at all, and i’m glad he doesn’t, because those coworkers really were just good friends. and it would have made work really difficult. it probably helps that one of the guys was married, and that dh knows them both well from numerous happy hours, dinners, and our wedding…

    the best non-jealous thing happened about a month before dh proposed (though i didn’t know the proposal was coming)–we were in my hometown and bumped into my ex-bf, who i hadn’t seen in like over 3 years. afterwards i told dh who he was, and asked if it bothered him, and he said, “why would it? you’re my girl now.” 🙂
