Jealousy, insecurity, and unfounded mistrust are signs you may have a possessive partner.
Signs someone may be possessive include:
Being upset and feeling threatened when their partner texts or hangs out with friends
Wrongly accusing their partner of flirting /cheating
Constantly wanting to be in contact and becoming irate when the partner doesn't text or call back quickly
Controlling how their partner dresses (for example, if someone wants to go out wearing something that shows skin, the possessive partner might become irrationally angry and accuse them of wanting others' attention)
Stalking behavior or showing up uninvited
