If your crush, friend, or girlfriend wants to make you jealous then this is why she is doing so.
You have to understand that anything that a girl might do reflects greatly on what she is dealing with.
There is always a reason for anything that a girl might do.
So, before I share with you these reasons let me tell you what it means when a girl tries to make you jealous or makes you jealous.
When a girl makes tries to make you jealous it’s mainly because she is trying to get your attention. If you don’t have your eyes focused on her then she will try to do this just to grab your attention.

Let me go straight into the topic of the day.
This is why she is trying to make you jealous;
1. She is trying to make you jealous because she wants your attention.
If you are wondering why your girlfriend is trying to make you jealous then this is the first thing you should know.
She will try to make you jealous if you have been totally off, you no longer care about her and you seem to have lost interest in her.
Making you jealous is the only way she will confirm if you are really into her or if you have switched off your radar from her.
So, if you have not been giving her your attention then this is the reason why she is trying to make you jealous.
She knows that when she starts hanging out with other guys, flirting with them, or talking to them then she will get you worried and you will be back on her because you will be afraid to lose her.
This is especially if she knows that you are that insecure type of guy.
Trust me, a smart girl knows your weakness and she can use that against you if she wants to control and manipulate you.
2. She is trying to make you jealous because she wants to see how you will react.
Some girls will just try to make you jealous to see how you will react.
For instance, if you have been around each other for a while and you haven’t made your move on her, then she will try to make you jealous to see how you will react.
She might be doing that just to see if you are really into her or if you are comfortable being in the friend zone.
This is if she is just your friend or crush.
But if it’s your girlfriend then she is doing that just to see what you will do about it.
This is especially if she has never done it before, and she doesn’t know how you act when you get jealous.
She will try to make you jealous to see how you will behave around her.
3. She is trying to make you jealous because she finds it amazing.
If she likes it when she makes you jealous then she will continue doing it. If you are not used to it then you will have to find a way to.
This is because if it’s something that she finds makes her happy then she will keep on doing it no matter how many times you ask her to stop.
How will you know she likes it when she makes you jealous?
You will know that she likes it when she makes you jealous when she keeps on doing the same things when she is around you despite you telling her to stop doing it or that you hate it when she makes you jealous.
This is what will let you know that she really likes it when she makes you jealous.
It’s just like the way you have certain behaviours that you really like and you always give them an upper hand, if this is the same case for her then making you jealous might be the only thing she likes and it makes her feel good when she does it.
It can be that she feels wanted when she tries to make you jealous because of how you portray your jealousy.
4. She is trying to make you jealous because she likes when you act over-protective.
We all behave differently when we get jealous.
We have guys who become over-protective when their girlfriends make them jealous, we have those who become mad when their girlfriends make them jealous and we have those who pull away.
So, if you are the kinda guy who acts becomes over-protective when she tries to make you jealous and she likes it when you are that way then she will keep on doing it.
The same way you like it when you treat your girlfriend in a certain way and she comes in all for you, it’s the same way she likes it when you become over-protective due to jealousy.
If she is pleased with your over-protective behaviour when you get jealous then the moment you stop behaving that way she will try to make you jealous so that you bring back that behaviour.
5. She is trying to make you jealous just to annoy you.
If she knows that you always get angry when she makes you jealous and she has intentions of annoying you, she will definitely do that.
The moment a girl decides that she wants to make you jealous so that to annoy you then it’s because you have made her angry.
Luckily, there is a way how you can deal with that.
So, keep in your mind that if she is aware that you always get angry when she talks to other guys then she will do that intentionally.
She will wait for the moment that you have your focus on her and she will do the exact thing that you hate.
And that is making you jealous.
Anyway, know that your girlfriend will never want to annoy you if you are all on good terms.
If she makes you angry deliberately ask yourself what’s is wrong with her, or what have you done to make her want to annoy you.
6. She wants to make you jealous because you do the same to her.
This is something else, she might be trying to make you jealous simply because you do the same.
If you have been doing things that make her jealous and feel insecure and she keeps on telling you to stop and you never care then she will want to make you jealous. She will do that so that you feel what she is feeling when you do the same.
We have girls who like revenge, and tit-for-tat games. Even if you end up cheating on them they will do the same and tell you, “We are now even.”
So, if your girlfriend is this type of person and you have been doing things that make her jealous then she will do the same.
It can be that she has been observing the things you do when you go out with her at a party or when you are with her friends.
You might be doing things that make her jealous but she might have never confronted you because she feels it’s silly.
So, secretly hurting you, (by making you jealous) she knows that you will stop doing the same things she hates.
To be honest, not all girls will be comfortable with you hanging out with your female friends at all, holding hands, or looking at each other very intensely.
So, if you feel that your girlfriend wants to make you jealous or she is trying to make you jealous then avoid doing anything that will make her feel jealous.
7. She wants to make you jealous because she feels it makes her have power over you.
This is another reason why she wants to make you jealous.
If your girlfriend is this controlling and manipulative then she will try to make you jealous because she knows that by doing so she will make you submissive.
The moment she realizes that when she tries to make you jealous you can do anything for her then she will do this.
She will do it because it makes her feel that she has the power to control you and make you do anything she wants without you even complaining.
Anyway, if your girlfriend is this type of person then she is toxic to you.
Try to figure out a way you can stop her from doing that before it’s too late for you.
Controlling and manipulative behaviour are signs of an unhealthy relationship.
How to tell if someone is trying to make you jealous.
There are several ways that can let you know that someone is trying to make you jealous.
You will tell when someone is trying to make you jealous when he/she does things you hate in front of you, she/he flirts with other people before you, and he/she wants you to see what she does with other people yet she knows it makes you insecure.
Also, the moment you keep on telling him or her to stop doing the things he or she does and she keeps on doing them then he or she is trying to make you jealous.
This will let you know that he or she is trying to make you jealous.
For all the points that I have shared with you in this article, note the first point it’s very crucial.
If you have not been giving her the attention she wants then she will ask it from you by making you jealous.
It’s very important that you give your girlfriend your full attention because it’s the only thing that makes her feel that she is still valued in that relationship.
Diverting your attention from her will make her think you are no longer interested in her.
And that might make her start doing things to make you jealous.
Also, if she likes it when she makes you jealous because of the way you act when you are then she will deliberately do it.
If you don’t like when your girlfriend makes you jealous then face her and tell her the truth.
Tell her that you don’t like what she is doing and she should stop.
