My boyfriend is on online dating sites
It’s reasonable to interpret that as meaning you’ve agreed to not date anyone or sleep with anyone else, but I want to ask: when you agreed to be exclusive, how did this come about?
How clear was his side of the agreement to being committed?
this is separate, but I want to address it for your sake in general).
I said earlier that it’s worth looking into your own sense of trust in relationships since our internal relationship with trust can have a large impact in our relationships… You will never, ever know what the other person is doing at all times.
I can tell you from personal experience that this was a skill I needed to learn.
In my past, there have been times when even though the relationship was good, my insecurity would eat away at me.
I would think things like, “Well, things seem good, but what if she’s doing something behind my back and playing me for a fool, etc.
etc.” This type of thing has a lot more to do with our own personal insecurities and not so much with what the other person is or isn’t doing.
