4. Your jealousy makes you overly controlling
“I didn’t like having to deal with my girlfriend when she started asking me ‘to send her a picture to prove it.’ I was just out with the guys.” If you try to keep your boyfriend on a tight leash as a way to prevent him from cheating, he might end up feeling suffocated. Try not to be too controlling. Your boyfriend might cheat again if he feels hounded and starts to look for an escape.
