Being in a relationship is a matter of compromising with your partner, constantly communicating with him, and trusting him 100 percent. It can’t be helped though if there are instances throughout the relationship when telltale signs of jealousy surface. This is normal unless, of course, you happen to be the psychotic jealous girlfriend guys run away from. Are you? To know just how jealous you are of a girlfriend, let us know how many of the instances below you nodded yes to:

You require him to let you check his phone.
It’s one thing to accidentally read a message on his mobile, but to require him to let you see all of his messages, including those of  his mother’s is another thing altogether. There are times when you are even suspicious of certain contacts and ask him if he’s faking the names of the girls just so he doesn’t get caught. Worst-case scenario: When you get a copy of his contacts and sync it with yours just so you can check up on them sneakily when you have the time.
And text you his whereabouts every hour.
In other words, there's a “checking of attendance.” A non-text usually results in a fight since you expect him to let you know where he is without you having to ask him for it. Letting you know what he is doing, where he is and who he’s with should be an automatic thing for him. You are sometimes skeptical of his whereabouts and verify the veracity of his information through his friends.
    
You show up unannounced during nights out with the boys.
Remember that scene in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days where Kate Hudson unexpectedly shows up for Matthew McConaughey‘s poker night? You may not like the idea, but yes, guys need a break from having to be around their girlfriends once in a while. That doesn’t mean though that he’s already up to no good. Give your guy a break and let him hang out with the boys once a week. Let him miss you a little.
You should be the only girl in his life. The only girl.
Aside from his mother, sister, grandmother and other female relatives, your boyfriend has no right to be friends with other girls. Otherwise, there’d be hell to pay. Let us tell you, that attitude right there immediately sends guys running in the opposite direction because, let's face it, who wants to feel controlled and tied to a noose? Let your guy enjoy the company of other female friends without going berserk about it. For all you know, he might even be telling them just how happy and proud he is to have you in his life.
    
You pick a fight every single time he looks at another girl.
Face it, dear: Guys are wired to notice any pretty or hot girl that walks right past them. As long as he knows his limits, however, you don’t always have to throw a hissy fit.
    
You go through his social media sites constantly.
In fact, you’re even logged on to them on your mobile so you instantly get notifications when someone sends him a PM or a tweet. Please get a grip and log out immediately. Your guy still deserves some breathing space and privacy.
You’ve secretly checked up on him.
Whether you admit it or not, you’ve already checked him out without him knowing because you don’t trust him at all. Maybe you’ve dropped by the resto where he said he’d be having a meeting with a client, or perhaps coyly asked one of his friends if they’re really together. It's not healthy to be this paranoid, and we doubt it's making you happy either. Do yourself a favor and trust your man to do the right thing. If he wants to cheat, no amount of paghihigpit will stop him from acting on his impulses.
