When you are out with one of them though, how jealous are you of other men?
I was thinking about this the other day when I saw a couple together walking down the beach and one fully turned around and checked out another gay guy as he was passing by. I couldn’t tell what the reaction of his boyfriend was but it got me thinking about jealousy when dating. If you are seeing someone, are you expected to not even look at other people or is that just preposterous? One factor is if you and the person you’re dating have had a discussion about exclusivity or not. If you haven’t, then it is pretty much fair game that he might be looking at other people and it’s not presumptuous to think that he’s dating other people as well. In fact, you might as well assume that he is unless he tells you otherwise directly. How you deal with your feelings about that are a different matter and will differ for each person. Some men are just naturally more jealous individuals than others.
Is there any benefit to jumping down his throat each time he so much as glances at another man? Not really, no. All it does is make you appear like you’re jealous and you don’t trust him. When trust comes into play, that is when emotions can go into overdrive. It only makes sense that you notice other attractive gay men. They’re right in front of you! It’s a nice idea to think that you ‘only have eyes’ for the person you’re seeing but it’s rather unrealistic, isn’t it? It’s more if you have wandering eyes that extend beyond just looking that you (or the man you’re seeing) can get into trouble.
Now tell us, men of ManPlay: How jealous are you? Be sure and let us know and then discuss this hot topic with others in the message boards on the site. We’re eager to hear how you deal with feelings of jealousy and if you have any tips for others!
