How to handle a jealous man

All Woman

Women are the ones said to be highly emotional and needy, but if truth be told, when the male species gets jealous, nothing is more emotional than he is. Indeed, some get so overwrought on their feelings that they even do harm to the women they suspect have wronged them.

How can you handle a jealous man?

1. Know what you're dealing with

If your man is jealous of every man he sees you talk to, understand that you have a man with low self-esteem and that can border on abuse if not handled from the get-go. When he acts up, don't just sit and cry about it, state respectfully how you feel. It is not fair to be imprisoned by any human and their insecurities. Talk about it. Another thing to note is that jealousy most times branches from mistrust. For a relationship to be fully healthy and fulfilling, you have to trust your partner and your partner MUST trust you. If not, the relationship won't survive. You create this type of relationship by first creating a friendship because in the dry season of your relationship, your friendship will sustain the relationship.

2. Involve your partner in your daily activities

People may say that when you tell your partner your schedule it is like a child reporting to their parents, but it is a means to build trust and strengthen the foundation of your relationship. Always remember to treat your man as you desire him to treat you. To eliminate drama and arguments, simply pick up the phone and let him know.

3. Affirm him

Treat your man well so when he sees you around other men he will feel secure knowing who he is to you. His treatment should differ from the other folk in your life.
