Are_you_a_possessive_girlfriend_resized.jpgWhile it's great to show your man you love him, you also need to show him that you trust him, and the trust part of the deal sometimes seems the hardest. After all, unless he was pure as driven snow when you first got together, he's bound to have a history with some other girl somewhere. Even if he is that pure, he still may come with other people's baggage.

 

But when does it reach the point where it's uncool to keep holding onto him, and when does your hold on him become a vise? You may not even notice that you're living in each others' pockets, but if you are, it can be very unhealthy for your relationship.

 

So has the green-eyed monster taken up permanent residence in your heart? Find out if you’re choking your man by taking this handy quiz.

Page 1 of 1

1 .) You’re out on a date with your boyfriend when you bump into The Girl, AKA your man’s former girlfriend of two years. You:
  1. Feel a little uncomfortable but smile gamely when your boyfriend makes the introductions.
  2. Stand aside while they rekindle old friendships. She€™s an ex, after all, not a rival.
  3. Ignore her completely and drag your man away€”accidentally stomping on her foot as you do so.
2 .) You invite your boyfriend over for home-cooked dinner but he declines because he’s going out with the boys tonight. You:
  1. Bristle and insist that he cancel his outing. They€™re his friends, but you€™re the girlfriend!
  2. Are disappointed (and tell him so) but reschedule the dinner for another evening.
  3. Are not bothered and tell him to enjoy himself. You can have dinner with him any old time, anyway.
3 .) It’s late at night on a weekend. Your man calls to tell you his best guy friend is sick so he’s spending the night at BFF’s house to take care of him. You:
  1. Ask to talk to his friend first and offer to bring some soup over (and a little TLC!) if you hear him sniffling.
  2. Hop into your car and take a quick drive to the friend€™s house to check if your man is really there. As they say, it€™s better safe than sorry.
  3. Wish them good luck and hope for the best. You€™re proud of your man for being a great friend.
4 .) Your boyfriend gets promoted at work and you’re attending his congratulatory party as his very special date. How’s your attitude at the party?
  1. You make the rounds in the room with him, your arm draped casually around his, as you make conversation with his co-workers.
  2. You stick to his side like glue and glare at every woman who dares to congratulate him€”including his sixty-year-old female boss. Can€™t they see he€™s taken?
  3. It€™s your guy€™s night so you let him mingle as he pleases while you sit at your table and sip on champagne.
5 .) You call your man’s cellphone and a woman answers—gasp! You:
  1. Think nothing of it and ask if your boyfriend€™s there. If he€™s not around, you can call back later.
  2. Are outraged! You demand for the woman€™s name (handy for doing a background check later on) then immediately rush to where your man is to fend her off.
  3. Calmly ask if your boyfriend is with her, and when you get to talk to him, request for an explanation. There€™s nothing wrong with wanting facts.
6 .) Your man cancels a date with you at the last minute. He needs to pick up his teenage sister from practice, he explains apologetically, because no one else is available. You:
  1. Take it in stride. There€™s always next time.
  2. Complain that he€™s neglecting you and demand that he come get you right this instant! You really want to watch that romantic movie with him. His sister isn€™t helpless. She can take a cab!
  3. Ask if you can come with him to pick her up, and then proceed with the date after you€™ve taken her home. You were really looking forward to spending time with him.
7 .) You’ve got a date with your boyfriend and you’ve been waiting for thirty minutes in the restaurant. What’s the first thought that comes to your head?
  1. €œHe stood me up! Is he with another girl? I bet he ditched me to go out with that bimbo from Accounting!€
  2. €œOh, my god, I hope he didn€™t get into accident.€
  3. €œDid he forget about our date? His best friend must have invited him to a bar again.€
8 .) 8. Reality check: How often do you check on your man’s whereabouts?
  1. A few times a day through text or call. You like knowing if he€™s taking care of himself, what he€™s doing or when he€™s going out with friends. That way, you can figure out the best time for the both of you to meet.
  2. Every second of everyday is not enough. You contact your man through every venue possible: texts, calls, Facebook, Twitter, his friends, his sister, etc. You get restless when you don€™t keep track of his whereabouts.
  3. You don€™t check on him. He calls you sometimes.
9 .) Your man accidentally leaves his e-mail open in his browser. You:
  1. Jump at the chance to read his e-mail. His life is your life, too, after all, and you have the right to know what€™s going on€”down to the nitty gritty details.
  2. Don€™t read his e-mail. There€™s no question about it. It€™s not even about the two of you. It€™s all about respecting his privacy.
  3. Momentarily get swayed by the idea of looking but you come out of it with a clear head and decide not to do it.
10 .) You’re going on a mandatory out-of-town trip for work. That means you won’t see your boyfriend for five days! How do you cope?
  1. You know you€™re going to miss him but that€™s all right as long as you can keep a bit of contact with the help of technology. Hopefully, when you return, the welcome party will be worth the wait.
  2. The thought of not knowing what€™s going on in your man€™s life for that long is enough to make you break out into a cold sweat. You make sure to call him 24/7 and instruct your BFF to watch him like a hawk for you until you return.
  3. No sweat. You€™ll be able to see him again in a week. Besides, you€™re going to Baguio, not Timbuktu.

    Youâre Not Possessive. Your sweet and easygoing nature makes you a trusting and loyal girlfriend. You donât question or prod, and you keep the past in the past. You just take things as they are, assuming that your partner will give you equal respect and love in return. Look out because your naturally forgiving spirit might make him abuse his boundaries! Remind him that you have feelings, too. You deserve to throw a tantrum every once in a whileâ"especially when thereâs a reason behind it. tama po.

    the test sure said i'm not possessive... but deeply i know i am possessive...hehehe. i was answering honestly! but rather, maybe it's the control i've been practicing to keep calm when the situation strikes, and that i know that sooner or later, i'll open my mind and see that there really is nothing to worry about. =)

    I'm not possessive!! I don't want my bf to feel that I'm not trusting him. It doesn't help the relationship. We just communicate and talk about the things/situation that can make us feel uncomfortable so that we can avoid it. Understand and respect each other...

    accdg. to this quiz.. im over possessive.. yes i know the fact that im over possessive girlfriend and also a paranoid girl but for me every girl has there own way to show his man how she really feels and let him know the fact that a women nowadays is more open to the reality that every man can face.. in that case.. i have to say that i love being a possessive and paranoid girlfriend to him im not ashamed to say that and to admit it.. i have to show my man that im aware of their nature. in my own point of view mistakes is all round and its for him to control his life and self and im the one who personally tell him honestly that he have to do his part as a man who have this deep responsibility to take good care of his girl not to hurt her feelings.. second chances never be accepted for me... and its for the man who can appreciate the effort but.. im not saying that being a possessive girl have to control her man's life but to guide their relationship with the help of god in between..of coarse you cant be with a man w/o trust from the very beginning of your relationship you put all your trust to him but still you have to remind him of your responsibility as a couple ..this is my opinion i just wanna share ..

    first year of relationship is hard, put trust give full understanding, but watch out could be the reason abuse your confidence,if that is happen give him an ultimatum till down his knees begged a second chance, means he really loves you.Now we're engaged get marry soon. Being possesive is not right in a relationship, give a space.

    my result:

    Youâre Moderately Possessive. Your kind is a rare kind of womanâ"the kind whoâs successfully reached a level of maturity in relationships, a balance between carefree innocence and perceptive wariness. You hold onto your man with just the right amount of strength. You know when to push and when to accept, and your man loves you all the more for it!



    -I AGREE :)

    according to the result, I'm not possessive, but honestly, i think - I'm moderately possessive. I know how to respect his personal space & at the same time can be demanding for some quality time with me as well..

    I am not Possessive daw hehe.I soo agree!For me kase,I didn't not reach college,read thousands of books and magazines,listened to experts and experienced people to learn and realize na men and women are different and we should respect the other person sa pagiging ibang tao nya.It includes his choices and decisions.If he decided to wander,that's his problem,if he decides to stay,that's my candy.I am not ice,it's just that I really understand how they mind works.And I am emotionally intelligent to accept things easily and move on.
