6 Ways To Stop Being Jealous When Your Girl Talks To Other Guys

Nico Haas

If you're the jealous type, it can be hard to watch your girlfriend talk to other men. While jealousy is natural and normal, it's also something that needs to be managed well. Here are six ways to stop being the jealous boyfriend and instead trust and communicate with your partner:


When it comes to jealousy, trust is the most important component. Trust is not something that you can give to your partner; it's something that you must build with them. Building trust requires honesty, openness, and consistency.

To start building trust, be honest with yourself about what triggers your insecurity and jealousy. Do you feel jealous when she talks to other guys? Does she like spending time with them more than she does with you? If so then this gives her an opportunity for growth because perhaps there are things in her life (such as friendships) that deserve more attention than they've been getting recently but were put on hold due to other circumstances such as relationship woes or work stressors etc...

Another step towards building trust is communicating clearly with each other about how the relationship should look going forward so both parties know what's expected from one another which will help eliminate any miscommunication down the line when people get defensive over small issues rather than addressing them in a calm manner beforehand!


If you think your partner is flirting with other guys or even cheating on you, it's time to talk. Communicate openly and honestly with your partner about how their behavior makes you feel. You may be surprised at how quickly they will respond when they realize that their actions are making you uncomfortable!

If there's one thing in life I've learned from my experience as a teacher and counselor, it's that men tend to be less communicative than women. When confronted about something, rather than responding directly to our questions and concerns, men often deflect by saying "no" or changing the subject entirely (and in some cases going as far as getting angry).

It takes courage for us women to bring up these issues; but once we do speak our minds, most men recognize the need for change right away—and will make whatever adjustments necessary so that both partners' needs are met!

Pay attention

The first thing you need to do is pay attention. Pay attention to how she acts around them, how she treats you after spending time with them, and how she talks about them. You should also notice how she dresses when she is with them. It may be the case that your girlfriend does not want to spend as much time with you because of another guy or it may be your insecurity acting up.

You should also pay attention when your girlfriend does not act jealous when other women flirt with her boyfriends in front of her but gets upset when another man flirts with her boyfriend in front of him.

Understand your fears and insecurities

When it comes to jealousy, you must understand that it's a normal human emotion. But it can also be very harmful in relationships if left unchecked.

Jealousy often stems from insecurities: perhaps you're afraid she'll cheat on you or leave you for another man, or maybe you're worried that other guys might be better than your partner at something important like work or sports. It's important to identify where these fears come from so that they don't become bigger problems down the line.

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • What are my jealous triggers? This could be anything from someone making eye contact with your girlfriend across the room at a party, or maybe even talking about his ex-girlfriend constantly after he broke up with her (even though he's been dating someone else). The thing is, everyone has their own reasons why they get jealous—and once those reasons are identified and understood, we can start finding ways of dealing with them more effectively!

Put your ego in check

We all want to be the best, and it’s natural to feel a bit of envy when someone else has something you don’t. But jealousy is never a good look, especially in relationships. It can cause resentment, make you act irrationally, and even lead to cheating if you aren’t careful.

So, how to stop being jealous when my girlfriend is talking to other guys?

Here are some tips:

  • Understand that jealousy is a sign of insecurity. It's easier said than done, but try looking at jealousy from the perspective of the person who's feeling it instead of focusing on how other people affect your emotions and decisions. If there's anything positive about being jealous—and there may be not—it's that it shows just how much you care about your partner or relationship! However, if this doesn't help alleviate any discomfort or fear around being jealous...you might need to take some time apart from each other so things can cool down before resuming contact again later down the line (or possibly ever).

Don't be a jealous boyfriend!

Most of the time, jealousy is caused by your own insecurities. If you are insecure about something, it's only natural that you become jealous when someone else compliments or talks to your girlfriend. The solution? Learn to be secure in yourself and your relationship by focusing on what's going well with both of you, instead of what could go wrong.

Also, realize that being a jealous boyfriend doesn't make her want to spend more time with you—it makes her want to find someone who isn't like that!

Take Away:

Being jealous is natural, but it can also be a sign of insecurity. If you find yourself feeling jealous or insecure about your girl's interactions with other men, then it's time to stop being jealous and start communicating. Trust her, talk to her about your insecurities and fears, and pay attention to what makes your jealousy flare up so that you can take action against it before it becomes an issue.
