Guys tend to view girls as their possession or property, but at least their status is valuable...when they're lost or taken and that says a lot....

Jealousy is a ugly trait, just saying. There is nothing you can do if you bf/gf have decided to cheat on you, so just dont think about it.

When it comes to matters of love, lust and even just an attachment, jealousy enters into the equation.

People who are overprotective are either overly cautious, or overly possessive, and don't see that as something that is limiting.

All who have loved, lusted, liked, or even just sought but lost someone to another because they weren't quick enough, there lies a deep desire

to retain that person to themselves alone. No one can deny that when they've found the person they want to be with, that they'd want their

significant other to be just as enamored about being with them as they are, right? It is the most logical response to tension from others, really.

And as I've seen in the replies several young women comment on this topic, they actually enjoy that their significant other protects them.

It's one thing to be oppressed and miserable, but when a partner's actions actually comfort, even ensconce, that's a good thing.

I beg to differ, I would be very happy if my boyfriend is overprotected of me.

SRSLY. I COULD MARRY HIM ANYTIME.

Ask yourself "Why are gfs so protective of their bfs?" and you'll get the answer.

Some guys are just overly insecure and fear that they may lose their girl to a rival that they feel might be better than them.

Some guys are just psycho and get jealous if so much as their GF looks says hi to another man and those are the kind I would tell any girl to run away from asap.

Also depends on the situation and what your definition of "overprotective" is.

I mean if I was out with my GF trying to have a good time and some dude rolls up and starts hitting on my girl than you better believe I'm going to have an issue with that. It wouldn't be a case where I was insecure or jealous or even needed to protect her but it's just plain rude. Not that I would cause a major scene or anything but I would make sure the guy gets the hint that he's not welcome.

If it's more of a social gathering with friends than that's a different story and I would fully trust her to talk to other guys just as I would expect her to trust me to talk to other girls.

Also some women are just as overprotective as men are but they typically express in different ways.

Could be either bf or the gf that can be like this, and could be a sign of insecurity/trust issues..which is no good for a relationship, imo.

I think jealousy arises (what you are probably calling 'protectiveness') because the male is insecure of the female. He fears that she will inevitably leave him and tries to prevent this by being 'protective' and possessive.

What amazes me is that women put up with that crap.

It depends on what kind of "protection" the guy is offering. There is the good kind, like when my boyfriend makes sure I don't get pushed around or crushed when we are at a crowded concert. Then there's the bad kind. I dated a guy who would try to start shit with some guy if he thought he was looking at me. You want to feel like they are looking out for you but not treating you like a possession.
