As just about any episode of “Jersey Shore” can prove, there’s nothing more poisonous to a relationship than unbridled jealousy. (*cough* Ronnie and Sammi *cough*) Nothing is quite so off-putting as the insecurity that makes you not trust someone — or makes your partner think you can’t be trusted.
But let’s be honest: sometimes a little jealousy is appreciated. It shows he cares! I thought it was totally adorable last week when the dude I’m dating confessed to a bit of seeing green. We were at a party playing air hockey when a platonic male friend/former coworker of mine walked in. I stopped air hockey for a second and greeted my buddy warmly with a hug.

So it made it even sadder when, a short moment into their performance, Kirstie dipped into her partner Maksim Chmerkovsky and they both tumbled to the ground after a slide. They got back up, but Maksim took a few seconds and winced pretty dramatically before the two started dancing again. Luckily, the judges were very forgiving. [TV Squad
