Ask Joey: Jealousy

It's time for another exciting edition of "Ask Joey", the internet's very first unsolicited advice column. If you have problems, I'm here to dispense some Tough Love (often excluding the Love part).

When I do "Ask Joey", I usually track down a question that was asked and answered in some other advice column -- then I post my own sarcastic and unnecessarily vicious response. It's what I do. However, the question this month comes from one "Refined Heroine", a woman who is having some jealousy issues. It's a common problem, but here's the twist: Miss Heroine actually sent this question directly to me! Honestly, I wasn't expecting this. Posting a typical (abusive) response just doesn't seem right in this situation. Therefore, I'm going to try something rather different: a sincere attempt to provide useful advice!

Here's the question:

Hi Joey,

Your blog always makes me wonder how much I need to learn to blur the boundary between being sarcastic and being funny.

Ok, here is my question. When i'm in a relationship, it's very easy for me to be jealous. I know it is not good but I just can't help it. I can't see the pics of his exgirls. He has printed a lot and I want to stick them together.

Can you give me some advice about how not to be jealous?

Refined Heroine

Interesting question! Here's my response:

Dear "Refined Heroine": First of all, thanks for visiting the site! Personally, I've never learned to blur the line between sarcasm and humor. In fact, I refuse to concede that such a boundary exists. This may explain why people often express a desire to "kick my ass".

Regarding your question: You are not alone! When you're in a relationship, it's very easy to succumb to jealousy. Especially when your boyfriend's ex-girls are all skank ass bitches, which I take it they are. If your man is too embarrassed to let you see photos of his previous girlfriends, one must assume that these girls are shameless ho-bags of the highest degree. For this reason, I don't see a problem with your jealousy here. From what you're telling me, you have every right to be jealous. Men do enjoy the company of skank bitches, and God knows that skank bitches enjoy the company of men. In your situation, I'd be jealous too.

Now, when you say "He has printed a lot and I wanted to stick them together", I can't say if this is a good idea or not because I'm not sure what you're talking about. Your boyfriend has printed images of his exes, and you intend to bind them all together using some kind of adhesive? This sounds OK to me... just be sure to use a well ventilated room. You really don't want to suck down too much of those adhesive fumes!
