    I'm with a girl and she's travelling whilst I'm at home doing my dissertation. I know we're good together, but I really suffer from jealousy and her friend keeps putting up pictures of her with other guys, which I know shouldn't as they're all innocent and she's friendly with guys anbyway, but it really gets to me and I play over situations in my head which distracts me from my work. Has anyone got any good ideas as to how to deal with this jealousy as in a good way or else it either ends up with me in a **** mood, I keep emailing her or texting her too much and sound pretty needy (or is this a good thing)?

    I think you need to take a step back and just accept the fact that she is independent and has a life of her own, and that she has male friends (or gets on with males) and this won't mean she'll do anything that you may get paranoid about.

    You trust her, right? At the end of the day, it's you she has chosen to be with. They can look, but they can't touch.
    I second this.
    So many relationships unnecessarily break down because one partner gets overly jealous. Surely it's a good thing she's out there doing something she enjoys and making friends along the way. You wouldn't want her sitting in on her own feeling miserable. I can imagine it's really hard because she's away for such a long period of time and I'm sure she really appreciates your texts/emails/calls, but don't overdo it because you don't want her to feel like you don't trust her.
