Because I do go back and read past entries...
You have no right to get jealous. You have no right to get jealous. You have no right to get jealous.
I won't torture all of you with the repitition of that sentence I actually need to drill it into my head...I'll just read it over and over again myself...
It doesn't matter. He has a girlfriend, and it's not her. It doesn't matter. He has a girlfriend, and it's not her. It doesn't matter. He has a girlfriend, and it's not her.
Again, won't repeat it as many times as are actually necessary...(If I did that for both of those, I'd probably hit the maximum entry length...)
1st off, you can post private entries that are invisible to the rest of us. (At least, I think you can. I haven't tried it yet to see if it works)
2nd, jealousy is an emotion, and emotions don't care whether they have a right to exist. They're actually heightened by attempts to repress them. (Cupperson's theorem of emotional growth)
I'm guessing she's with the ex-boyfriend tonight, and you're concerned that there may still be something between them.
3rd party perspective (AKA blind leading the blind):
Now would be a bad time to seem overly jealous. At the same time, too much trust is going to seem like you don't care. Everything in moderation. You're looking for a nice balance in the "I'm a little uneasy about this, but I trust you" range. She expects some degree of emotion from you here. If she can't sense it, she'll know you're hiding things.
Spy on them, misunderstand something, make an ass of yourself, apologize, race her to the bedroom.

What musical choice?
It wasn't even as bad as the scenario you brought up. I was being completely unreasonably jealous over someone being much more familiar with her than I had at that point. I'm completely over it now. I really enjoyed the "sitcom advice." Of course, that only works if she's a regular member of the cast. If she's a guest star, she could just as easily walk right out the door...As I've said before, trying very hard to make sure she joins the regular cast.
Does that mean she needs to meet the other "regulars?"
