Or, on the other end, there are incredibly frustrated people who, after months or years of tiptoeing around their partners, blow up in their faces, saying and doing things they later regret. Men often do the silliest of things: try and make their women jealous.There is no wrath like the wrath of a jealous woman — a little pain may be healthy, but you're going to get a little more than just a little pain. There will always be pain to be had, so there's no need for you to make an effort to bring it about. It’s a feeling that is sometimes very difficult to avoid.

She frequently involves you in those conversations. “Maybe she's a talkative person and likes conversing with people and listening to other's opinions on subjects,” says Boston-based dating coach Neely Steinberg, founder of The Love TREP.
And she isn’t touching these guys, flipping her hair, or making goo-goo eyes at them. If that’s the case, then you can take a deep breath.
