FACT: You may feel flattered if your boyfriend or girlfriend acts jealous or constantly texts you to see where you are and who you're with, but jealousy and possessiveness are not signs of love.

They're signs of insecurity, and a need to control you. A person who wants to have sex with you does not necessarily love you.

It appears to be the most popular way of finding your “match” these days. You are bored and want to meet a man, but don’t know where to meet one, so you sign up with an online dating service.
