You should be careful about what you get jealous about with a person that you are dating online.
This is part of what makes dating a person online tricky.
Being that you are dating the person online, it would be a lot easier for you to make assumptions of what you think they may be doing based on their online activity or what you may read into the messages that they send you.
This is very dangerous.
This situation is made that much more precarious in the fact that you don’t get to see this person in real life on a regular basis, if you get to see them at at all.
This means that your mind could easily misinterpret something that they may have written to you online or some kind of activity that you may think that they are engaged in when they are online.
Jealousy is not okay when you really have no true evidence about what the person that you are dating online may be doing when it comes to cheating.
For example, you may notice that the person that you are dating online has a lot of followers of the opposite sex on their social media accounts.
This person may have always had these many followers of the opposite sex on their social media.
However, now that you are dating this person online, you may begin to take offense to this.
As your feelings grow for this person, you begin to make yourself believe that the person that you are dating online must be some kind of player or must be cheating on you with some of these followers of the opposite sex that they have on their social media accounts.
The more emotionally attached you become to this person that you are dating online, the more you have these thoughts.
This is exacerbated by the fact that you don’t get to see this person in real life all that often, or at all.
Due to this kind of absence, your mind will naturally make you believe the most egregious assumptions about what this person must be doing with all these followers of the opposite sex.
You become more and more insecure in the relationship.
This leads to a lot of jealousy that is simply not okay.
You may even start accusing the person that you are dating online of cheating or infidelity of some kind.
This may put a strain on the relationship that ultimately causes it to end prematurely.
This is the danger that you run into when you start dating a person online and begin to allow your insecurities to get the best of you.
Again, this person may have already had all these followers of the opposite sex on their social media long before they met you online.
They may not be doing anything with these followers that would point to them being cheaters.
This is one of the reasons why jealousy is not okay with a person that you are dating online unless you have concrete evidence of infidelity or disloyal behavior.
Jealousy is also not okay with a person that you are dating online when you base it on the feeling that you are getting from text messages that you may receive from the person.
If the majority of your communication with this person is done through texting, there may be moments during your interactions where you feel as though the person was insensitive or not sensitive enough in something that they wrote.
Being that all of your communicating with this person or the majority of it is done through texting, you may totally misread the person’s intention and make an erroneous assumption.
It is so dangerous to base any kind of jealousy on what you are interpreting from text messages.
Being that you are using an impersonal way to communicate, so much can get lost in translation.
This is why you should make it a habit to consistently communicate with this person that you are dating online through video.
Using video gives the both of you the opportunity to see each other as you communicate.
This way, you truly get to see this person’s body language as they speak and hear the tone of their voice.
Using video to communicate, completely eradicates the possibility of misinterpreting or misreading a text message that they may have sent.
This can really help in stemming any kind of unwarranted jealousy that you may feel based on a way that you went about misinterpreting a text message.
Jealousy is not okay with a person that you are dating online when it simply has no true basis in fact.
The mind can easily take you to baseless assumptions when you are unsure about something.
If you get to these moments of uncertainty and you are unable to stop worrying about it, just have an open conversation with this person about this particular issue through video.
Do this before allowing yourself to get carried away with jealousy.
