Such excessive sense of jealousy usually arises from low self-esteem and an unfair though sincere expectation that somehow you don't truly deserve the loce of someone really nice and so that it feel inevitable that they wouldcheat on you. See a personal counsellor, preferably one practising CBT, the most effective form, and learn to enhance your self-esteem and grow your ability to be appropriately trusting
