wibbly
 n.— «Polyamorists also had a word for low-key jealousy—”wibble.” “It’s a kind of jealousy that doesn’t represent a massive sexual threat; it’s a smaller version of jealousy,” said Dr Barker. “You can say ’I’m wibbly’—I’m really OK but a bit shaky, and I need some reassurance.”» —“The Language of Love for Polyamorists” by John von Radowitz Scotsman (Glasgow, Scotland) Apr. 3, 2005.
