      Jealousy is an emotion that can keep brewing in someone’s mind until it becomes toxic and obsessive. I couldn’t date a really jealous person.

    Not sure about that NBC News article. I have always thought jealousy is unhealthy and destructive to a relationship. Perhaps, as NBC suggests, if jealous makes a person open the lines of comunication (in a positive way of course), then it may be a good thing.

      I think the article was just trying to find a possible upside before explaining why it’s actually not good.
      A lot of people like the idea of their partner getting jealous because they believe it shows how much they like them. And I myself use to assume this. But jealousy is unhealthy because there’s zero positive traits to cause the emotion.
      It’s not as though people when jealousy when they’re happy and doing well.

    Regarding jealousy, it’s sort of a complicated subject, there are many ways to deal with it and many ways that it might show a person as a possesive individual, I believe it depends how the jealous person shows his affection trough jealousy, it may be shown as a little game, and sometimes as bad as an impulsive and violent feeling…

      I don’t believe jealousy can ever be linked to affection, but I do think there are different ways to deal with it and it can be a feeling that passes without much reaction, or it can become an issue that turns violent or controlling.

I would love to read your thoughts!
