You feel insecure
You get jealous easily

It gives you trust issues
‘Whenever my boyfriend goes out with his friends, I always find myself clock watching and wondering what he is up to, where he is and with who. My trust issues are getting out of control to the point where I even check his cell phone’. – Carly, 31.
People stare at you
‘Going out with my boyfriend means we instantly have eyes on us. Whether we go out for dinner or just to the movies, people can’t help staring at us, probably in disbelief! Having people’s eyes on us makes me really self-conscious’. – Amy, 36.
You are constantly paranoid
‘Being in a relationship with a perfect 10 is the ultimate recipe for paranoia. No matter what my girlfriend does I’m always paranoid that other really good looking guys are checking her out and flirting with her. The paranoia is really weighing on our relationship’. – Spencer, 34.
You question yourself
‘My partner is the whole package, beautiful, sexy, kind and intelligent and I’m just average. I can’t stop asking myself why she is with me and not someone drop dead gorgeous like her’. – Henry, 30.
You feel like you have to make an extra effort

You can’t believe how lucky you are

‘Ever since I’ve been in a relationship with Brandon, he has made me realize that looks aren’t everything. I mean, he is amazingly hot, but his personality is much more precious than his gorgeous Adonis body and cute chiseled face’. – Lucia, 36.
You become judgmental
‘Dating Jake has made me super judgmental of other couples. Every couple I see I have a hard time not deciding which partner is hotter. Feeling like I’ve been judged for so long has made me judge other people’. – Clara, 30.
You feel inadequate
‘I have been with Chris for over 3 years, but I still don’t feel good enough for him. I can’t understand why he would want to be with someone plain and average like me when he could have anyone’. – Marina, 28.
