My jealousy is getting out of control and my boyfriend's had enough

DEAR DEIDRE: MY jealousy is out of control. Last weekend, I had a row with my boyfriend because a girl contacted him.

She wanted to buy his games console, which he had advertised for sale. He gave her his address and number so she could pick it up.

But I accused him of flirting.

He ended up telling her someone else had bought it, just to keep the peace.

How do I stop feeling like this? He says he has had enough.

We’re both 18.

DEIDRE SAYS: You’re aware he did nothing wrong and you overreacted, and want to change. That’s a great start.

It sounds like you feel insecure, perhaps because you’ve been hurt before.

My support packs Building Self-Esteem and Jealousy should help you.

Ask your boyfriend for his support to deal with this.
