You must communicate a lot and spend time together so that your partner feels loved and cared for.

A possessive partner will turn suspicious if you keep cancelling on them or always opt for ‘group’ dates than a couple-y one.
Set it straight:
You can’t live with someone who breaths down your neck. You have to set it straight with your partner that your friends are as important and integral to you as they are. If you wish to enjoy with your friends from the opposite sex, your partner shouldn’t feel overly possessive and negative about the situation. Everybody needs their space. In fact, tell them to have some fun with their set of friends too.
