There’s a reason we call jealousy the green-eyed monster. It can be an ugly emotion, one that can drag you down. And, if it’s a partner who inspires the monster to bubble to the surface, jealousy can drag your relationship down, too. Yet, some forms of jealousy feel more valid than others: Catching your partner checking someone out or talking to an ex (and keeping it a secret) can feel like “real” reasons to be jealous.
But what if your partner has a celebrity crush? You know they’ll never meet this person and even if they did, there’s about a 0.0001% chance that anything would happen between them. But still, you feel that tiny twinge of jealousy when your partner’s celeb crush graces your television screen or comes up in conversation. That might not feel like a “real” reason to be jealous. But feeling jealous about a celebrity crush is 100% valid, because your emotions are real, says Holly Richmond, PhD, a somatic psychologist and certified sex therapist (CST).
This Afternoon we discovered that Botswana women love the Brazilian Football star Neymar more so that they are jealous over his relationship. Neymar is currently tied to Bruna Marquezine; the 22 year old from in Duque de Caixas, Rio de Janeiro – which is almost 400km from Neymar’s family home.
After Posting a picture of Neymar with his girlfriend on our Facebook page Botswana women expressed their jealousy in all possible ways. Below are some of the comments from the post.
She believes ‘being takes’ doesn’t mean their dreams of dating Neymar are over. Who knows maybe she is right, cant wait to see Neymar in Botswana marrying one of our beautiful ladies. Dreams to come true.
She believes Neymar should date a chubby woman.
She doesn’t believe that her crush is taken, she believes that the picture has been photoshopped.
She admits that Neymar is handsome and nothing will stop her from admiring the Brazilian star. She believes her boyfriend is better than Neymar (True sign of being jealous haha)
She thinks Neymar’s girlfriend isn’t beautiful.
Although there’s nothing wrong with feeling jealous about your partner’s celeb crush, you might want to examine why you’re feeling that way, and remember that there’s a difference between fantasy and reality. “Celebrity crushes are about living in a fantasy world for most people,” Dr. Richmond says. The easiest way to get over your jealousy is to recognize that this crush lives in your partner’s head. “They might love looking at this other person and love fantasizing about them, but you’re the one they want to be with,” she says.
