You're going to get into some trouble if you don't figure out what drives you to be in these relationships that only fulfill parts of your needs. The story you tell usually has intimacy problems at it's base, so I would start there. The jealousy is usually about intimacy and control/lack of control.


I recommend that you read the articles I've linked for you above, and seriously consider some counseling so that you can sort this out and make the best possible choice for yourself. Committed relationships last a long time, and being drawn to drama is something that can really hurt your efforts in them.

My best to you.
