I am insanely jealous over new boyfriend after I was cheated on

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM turning into a green-eyed monster, and don’t know how to stop.

Since I have been in a relationship with my lovely new guy, I have felt insanely jealous all the time, for no clear reason.

I am 29 and he is 30. We’ve been dating for four months and have lots in common.

He treats me really well, we can talk about everything, and we are great in bed together.

But the other night, we were talking about our experiences, and he told me about something he did sexually with his ex.

I’ve seen photos, and she was younger and prettier than me.

It made me irrationally upset, and afterwards I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

He kept asking me why I was so quiet.

My last boyfriend cheat­ed on me, but my new guy is nothing like him.

I don’t want to drive him away by being so insecure and jealous.

DEIDRE SAYS: Being cheated on by your last boyfriend has dented your confidence.

You really like your new guy, so you’re scared of losing him.

Try to focus on your positive qualities, rather than comparing yourself to his ex. Remember, she is an ex for a reason.
