...and if a woman was behaving in the same way, would she be acting like a guy, too? And what about all the men who DON'T behave in this way: are they not male?
Hint: we're not cool with gender stereotyping here. Not regarding women, not regarding men. Not only is it often incredibly inaccurate and unhelpfull, it's insulting to everyone.
Punk: you know, it's been a BIG parade of partners for you at a young age. You've also recently posted that you, too, may have interest in others. That's all normal enough: but deep relationships take time to develop, even at the advanced pace plenty of teen relationships take. I've suggested this to you before, so just fopr kicks, I will again: might be wise to slow down with the relationships a little, take a break to be ON YOUR OWN.
That said, what you do in a sitch like this is talk to your boyfriend: bring up the double standards, make clear you feel they're unfair (and you're right, they are) and that what's good for the goose also needs be good for the gander. I'd also bring up that trying to make you jealous is both hurtful and not conducive to a sound, healthy relationship.
But if you CAN'T have a discussion as simple as this -- and you've been in this spot with partner before, unable to feel you can have normal, fair discussions you need to have because of fear of a partner's reaction, mostly due to a lack of maturity on their part -- then this isn't a relationship worth having, nor one where one or both parties are really ready to be having one.
