Being a jealous partner is never usually seen as a great quality, but a new survey has shown that a remarkable number of people thought jealousy was good for their relationship.
The survey carried out by Cupid online dating, found that
72% of women thought that a bit of jealousy was a good thing, compared to 65% of men.
People explained that a bit of jealousy showed that their partner cared, with most preferring a green eyed boyfriend to one who was less committed.
We're all a little bit guilty of being jealous too, with two thirds of men and women admitting to experiencing the feeling themselves.
Sean Wood, a spokesperson for Cupid, explained, "Even thinkers such as Sigmund Freud cite jealousy as a necessary part of a healthy relationship.
Too much and it can be destructive, but feeling a little bit threatened or protective is an animal instinct, and it's totally normal!"
But remember - everything in moderation. A little bit is fine, following him to work is not...
