DEAR DEIDRE: ALTHOUGH I don’t want to be with my best male friend, I feel really jealous when he shows any interest in other girls.
I don’t understand why I feel this way. We’re both 18. We did have a fling when we got friendly at college, but he ended it.
I was upset at first but soon got over it.
That was two years ago. Since then we’ve become close friends.
So why do I get so irrationally jealous when he fancies someone else?

DEIDRE SAYS: Maybe some part of you still harbours the desire to be with him.
Or perhaps you fear that if he gets into a relationship with another girl, you’ll lose the closeness you share.
Talking to someone about how you feel will help. If you do want to give it another go with him, it might be worth testing the waters.
My support pack, Coping With Jealousy, may help.
