[Read: 15 sweet ways to make your boyfriend feel loved and special in the relationship] The only way a guy can rid himself of the cycle of jealousy and possessiveness is by confronting it himself.You can shower him with affection and make him feel loved, but there’s only so much you can do before you crumble into pieces yourself!And this power to control you *that you willingly give away each time you give in to his possessive habits* makes him assume that he’s the final authority in the relationship.And each time you break free or do something he doesn’t approve of, it makes him feel more jealous and insecure because he believes he’s losing his grip and power over you.17 big signs of a jealous and possessive boyfriend It’s never easy to clearly demarcate the signs that differentiate a good boyfriend from a possessive one.
And if your possessive guy can’t change for you, or can’t stop trying to control you, perhaps it is best you walk away from him, or he’ll always expect more from you, all the time! He constantly wants to play a part in any decision you take.
He stalks you or tries to find out where you are often when you’re out with a friend by calling you up out of the blue and telling you he wants to see you or meet you, or that he wants to pick you up. He’s extremely protective about you, and doesn’t want you to do anything new without him.
He behaves like your life is in danger when he isn’t around to take care of you, and sulks when you try something new for the first time without him. He gets really mad over simple issues, especially if it involves another guy. He’s extremely inquisitive about everything that goes on in your life.
Jealousy and possessiveness is a vicious cycle that takes turns to rear their head all the time.
And no matter how hard you try to help your boyfriend feel better and more loved, he may only choose to see the ways that you’ve let him down.
