How do I get over jealousy?

I get so jealous when my girlfriend talks to her ex boyfriends. it's starting to hurt her and me. how do I get past it?

By realizing that the love, admiration and faithfulness you seek from her can only come from a free, un-oppressed heart, voluntarily.
Jealousy only destroys what it wants.

Tact helps. When you tease an already insecure person, you are not only hurting them, but making it a lot worse for you.
Think twice before teasing.

Let her know how you feel, so you can both be cautious about it, and so, if she catches on it, it won't start a huge fight. Also, let her know that you'll try to work on it and tell her that its only because she's such an amazing person you don't feel as though you're good enough for her, so you see all these people who are and you're scared she'll choose them over you, and you'll lose the most precious thing you've ever had in your life.

I don't think that that it's all you. Any guy thats gf is calling her ex BFs is going to have a problem with it. How would she like it if you started calling up your last GF & meeting for innocent chats

Tell her it bothers you and if she doesn't stop after knowing how much it bothers you then dump her

Well, ask her about it, talk about it. You can resolve things and sort things out that way. Jealousy is a part of life and you'll have to deal with it like all of us but over time, you'll get over that one thing and find another thing to be jealous about

Maybe she can't stop thinking about her ex boyfriends. You should become one.She's insecure. Leave her.

She shouldn't be conversing with x's in my opinion. It's not right if she is serious about you.

jealousy is one of the worst spirits on this planet....it causes people to even murder because of it...the only thing you will be doing is turning your girlfriend off...and chasing her away with your jealousy.....trust is very important early on in any realationship....without trust there will always be doubt.
