Let's say something really good came your way, i.e. you were able to buy a new car, got a better job, nicer place to live, a nice significant other, etc. etc. and someone got jealous and weren't happy for you, is this a sign of bad character? Is this someone you would avoid? It could be either someone close or an "acquaintance". It could be either male or female although females tend to be more jealous, however I've seen a few males like that too.

Your conclusions I believe are spot on, and good advice if you can't avoid them, don't share your good fortunes with them. What they don't know won't hurt them.
I agree it's a red flag if there is negative behavior towards the good news. Also I am not trying to put women down but it's been my observations over the years. If men act that way (and some do) they are to be avoided as well. Thanks for commenting.
I think it's better to surround yourself, if at all possible, with positive upbeat people who are glad for you.
