forgetting-sarah-marshallJealousy is a common relationship sore point. You call out your man for taking too much interest in his female officemate, and he feels suffocated by your unfounded accusations. Sometimes those twinges of jealousy are warranted, but these feelings can also go overboard. Has your man ever accused you of being a jealous girlfriend? Have you ever found yourself worrying that you might be one? Take this quiz from FN to find out if the green-eyed monster has taken residence in your heart.

1 .) A pretty girl passes by while you and your boyfriend are strolling in the mall. He says she’s gorgeous. You say:
  1. "She is, isn't she? What long legs."
  2. "Why are you looking at other girls when I’m right beside you?"
  3. "She is, but you think I’m cuter, right?"
2 .) Your guy leaves for a boys’ night out, but later you find out that girls went with them too. How do you react?
  1. You confront him about it, not because you don’t want him hanging out with girls, but because he didn’t trust you enough to tell you.
  2. You don’t even need to bring it up. You trust your man. Who cares if there were girls?
  3. Ban him from having boys' nights for a month, or insist he takes you on the next one.
3 .) Your BFF admits to having a crush on your boyfriend. You…
  1. Agree with her that your guy is super attractive, but make sure she knows he's yours, not hers.
  2. Sever your friendship, and make sure he never comes into contact with her.
  3. Thank her for recognizing your good taste.
4 .) Your man is the only guy in his team at work. That means he’s surrounded by women at least eight hours a day, five times a week! How do you feel about this?
  1. You feel fine. It’s only natural to work with people of the opposite sex. This isn’t the Stone Age.
  2. For the most part, you’re okay with it, but, come on, four women and one guy in one team? Of course, you feel worried sometimes.
  3. You’re angry. He should transfer teams immediately. Or, better yet, change jobs.
5 .) Your boyfriend is being sent to Boracay for a week for work. How do you react?
  1. You contemplate taking vacation leave and following him there. You never know what a hot-blooded man will do around scantily clad women.
  2. You jokingly tell him to stay away from babes in bikinis. You kind of mean it.
  3. You pack him some sunscreen.
6 .) Your girlfriend tells you she saw your man hanging out with another woman at one of your favorite bars. What do you do?
  1. Completely gloss over the issue. He has his own life and other friends besides you.
  2. Demand an explanation from him. How dare he sees another girl!
  3. Ask him who she was. You’re okay with him hanging out with other girls, but he should at least tell you about it especially if he’s taking her to a bar!
7 .) You and your man are on the way to the movie theater when you come across his ex. They strike up a conversation. What do you do?
  1. Keep your hand in his, introduce yourself (if he hasn't already introduced you), and join the conversation.
  2. Stand aside, and let them talk in peace. They must have a lot of catching up to do.
  3. Excuse both you and your boyfriend saying you have a movie to catch. Seriously, why is he talking to her when you’re out on a date?
8 .) You catch him laughing as he talks to a woman on the phone. What’s the first thing that pops into your head?
  1. “It must be his sister asking to get picked up later.”
  2. “Who is that woman? I’m going to tell him it’s over if he doesn’t get off the phone right now!”
  3. “I wonder which of his female friends he’s talking to. Sounds like fun. He'll probably tell me all about it later.”
9 .) You’re at a party with your man, and a woman keeps eyeing him as you work the room together. What do you do?
  1. You’re amused, but when you get closer to where she’s standing, you casually link your arm with his to make sure she knows he’s taken.
  2. Nothing. They probably know each other from somewhere. Or maybe it's not really him she's looking at.
  3. You take her aside and tell her to back off. And if she doesn’t, you’re more than ready to get into a catfight.
10 .) Your guy’s best friend is a woman. How do you feel about it?
  1. You’re actually good friends with her, so you don’t feel like it’s a problem.
  2. You tell him the truth: it makes you feel uncomfortable. If he has to choose between you and her, then so be it.
  3. You trust your man, but you make sure he doesn't give her more time and attention than he does you. You’re still the girlfriend, after all.

    Just telling them that we still need to catch a movie is simply enought. My priority is the movie, and not seeing them talking. hahaha
