There are 2 types of jealousy. The most correct definiton would be the feeling of being threatened by a rival in a romantic relationship or losing something of value to another person which happens to be yours already. This is what I consider the correct definiton.

The second is type of jealousy is more like Envy. Envy is a hatred/bitterness towards another person for having an advantage that YOU don't have. For instance, envious/jealous behavior such as a friend has a nice new car and instead of being truly happy for them you badmouth them or the car or make up something ridiculous because YOU can't afford it yourself. If someone has money and YOU don't you say they recieved it through less than stellar means. If someone is more talented than YOU you say their work isnt as good as anyone thinks or they are just lucky. This kind of 'jealousy' is destructive and displays itself as having a bad attitude towards the object of the envy and also being passive aggressive.

2. Mike was jealous of her because he didn't have any nice things. He had no happiness so he didnt want her to have any either.

Being jealous is wanting to keep what you have and guarding it from other people. Being possessive. Not wanting others to touch your stuff.

Jealousy is very often confused with envy (the desire to be like someone else, or have their possessions), but they are not the same.

i love you so much that i wear my heart on my sleeve and i just want everything to be great. But i have a feeling that you are going to go back to your old ways and forget about me or find someone who is better than me, therefore i am jealous.
